New CyanogenMod Theme Engine options allow users to customize status and nav bar colors separately

Being able to adjust even the smallest bits of the UI is one of the reasons Android fans turn to custom ROMs like CyanogenMod. Coming soon to CM12, developer Clark Scheff posted an updated Theme Engine screenshot showing new options to change both status and navigation bars independently from one another. While nothing groundbreaking, it’s yet another feather in the hat of an already full featured ROM brought to you by the boys ay Cyanogen Inc.

As for availability, Scheff mentions you should start seeing the new Theme Engine options arrive in February 19th nightly builds (and beyond), so be on the lookout. As for a little back story, Theme Engine had to be built from the ground up in order to play nice with Android Lollipop, only landing in CM12 nightlies about a month ago. Definitely nice to see further progress being made.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
