Hello #Levo users, I shalt not forsake thee...Here are some screenshots of the CM12 version of the dashboard and Settings app. You guys will be able to customize the theme colors, fonts and even the packages you want (or don't) to be themed.

Can't give a release date yet, but the project may be ready for a beta release in the next week or so...Cheers!

For some reason, at any point of time the SystemUI is no longer 'themeable'. This has been confirmed by many themers over here.

ThemeConfig.java, I believe seems to be where the configuration is taking place (May be the source of the bug??? Not sure...)

Here is the log part that indicates the bug  (Instead of my theme's overlay i.e. pixkart.cm.levo, system overlay is passed to the systemui and systemui.navbar):

Log portion:
----------------------------------------------------------
/system_process I/ActivityManager﹕ Config changes=480 {1.0 404mcc24mnc en_US ldltr sw360dp w598dp h335dp 480dpi nrml land finger -keyb/v/h -nav/h s.40 themeResource=themes:{

Not sure if anyone would like a OnePlus invite here. I've got 3 invites to share (64 GB Sandstone Black each, Global version i.e. not china/india specific). 

Those wanting an invite should send an email to pixkart@gmail.com with subject "OnePlus One Invite". First com first basis.

Sad News: Patches are dead.

They work, and stop working unexpectedly. I was able to patch only the Notification/Quick Settings page (light style) without bugs. Theme Chooser works in a complex manner. Patches can work but support and code modification by CM developers is needed. It can't be achieved without a collaboration. I might hit them an email for the new Theme Chooser in Lollipop.

There are just too many other plans in my mind right now. New theme, new icon pack, etc.
Well, for now I'm just going back to the current levo version and getting Gmail and YouTube fixed ASAP for the recently available apks.

Thanks, Apologies for the patches thing :(

+Dicken Christian No problem!) Yes, I agree with you about tiresomness. Any way all the white themes have problems with notification area. If program has white fonts, or icons they will be not visible on white background. Seems to be there is no way to theme all program notifications.))) So no problem that. Any way great thanks for trying!!! Waiting for new theme!!! 🙋🙌

Levo wallpapers uploaded on Google Drive!

Few persons have reported that they can't use the wallpaper picker included in the dashboard app for Levo. I'm working on fixing it soon with an updated wallpaper picker. Until then, you can use the uploaded wallpapers.

Thanks!

Bumped Levo to v1.8 right now. The update will be live soon. Pushed this update early specifically for a fix for tablets and new stock Lollipop icons.

I believe most of you will be updating to stock Android Lollipop in coming weeks and there'll be some time gap until CyanogenMod or PA will be releasing their Lollipop versions. Levo will however be continuously supported for CM12/PA and many features will get a revamp depending on the new Theme Engine's capabilities that will be released by CM. Thank you all for supporting Levo so far! FYI, it just crossed 500 downloads today!

Summary of changes in v1.7
- Fixed: Transparent notification drawers on Tablets (Thanks +Ernesto Canela for helping me fix this)
- Stock Android Lollipop icons
- Themed more search textfield icons

IMPORTANT: This theme is compatible only with CUSTOM ROMs that support them...
