Inverted Black and Holo blue themes for Google Play Store


Yesterday Google released another update for the Play Store. While you’ll want the latest version for some bug fixes and such, the update covered up that awesome Blacked Out Google Play. We went from the new and redesigned 4.0.25 to 2.6 and then 2.7 last night and for those who want Black back, we have something even better today. But just a note here: you will need to be rooted.


This is the latest Google Play that was rolled out yesterday, version 4.0.27, and it has already been completely inverted to a black color theme. Then the awesome developer @B_Boytm took it a step further and changed all the text colors to Holo Blue. This gives you a Jelly Bean and ICS inspired Black and Holo Blue Google Play Store – and it’s pretty awesome looking.
Team BlackOut over on RootzWiki have more than just the Play Store, they have 12 other Google apps all inverted, which equates to around 40 downloads and you can get the Play Store in more colors than you can shake a stick at. They have tons of options. So just like before, if you like what you see above, read on to get it yourself. You don’t install this like an APK or an app, you need to flash it in a custom recovery.
