Latest CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies Now Include Theme Engine Support – AOKP Gets In On The Action As Well



If you’re currently running a rooted device that happens to be blessed with CyanogenMod 9 support, you’ll be glad to know that the world famous custom ROM now includes theme engine support in their latest “nightlies.”

Just like we saw back in CM7 (their previous Gingerbread custom ROM), users can once again take their customizing to new heights with the option to change everything from the color and icons of their favorite ROM. Very unlike CM7 however, is the Theme Chooser app has been kicked to the curb in favor of the new “Themes” option, accessed straight from within the settings app.

Also added in the latest CM9 nightlies are custom lockscreen shortcuts (picture above) that can be tweaked to launch your favorite and most used apps. Oh — and if you’re an AOKP fan, one of the devs from that project let everyone know via his Twitter today that this new themeing engine will also be making its way into their ROMs as well.

I always felt ICS could use a little more pink in it. Definitely excited to give this a go. Here’s a quick video showing off this fresh new feature in action.

  1. i love it

  2. I can’t wait for the older themes to be updated to support the changes in CM9.

    CyanogenMod feels so professional this time around. Nightlies are not breaking features, they are slowly adding features to make sure they have clean code, and they are putting these really nice features in the places you would expect them to be (instead of just having one large Advanced options in the settings). I also love the expandable volume panel. All of the people who contributed to CM9 have done an amazing job!

  3. Finally. This is awesome.

  4. I have a Sensation. I sadly am not blessed with CM9. Sad Face. Forever Alone.

    1. You do have AOKP though which is pretty awesome if i must say.

      1. Bugs etc here , everything is working except for 480p video recording :P but 720/1080 work fine, and DONT FORMAT YOUR SD CARD (BRICKS DEVICE apparently)

  5. We sittin here, I supposed to be a franchise player

    1. this was 10 years ago…wow

      1. Haha yeah they played it all day on ESPN so I can’t get it out of my head. But the new cm9 is cool, to get back on topic.

  6. How can I place a weather widget in the notification drawer(like the picture above) ? is that possible with CM9 ?

    1. It’s via AOKP. It’s basically CM9 with an extensive amount of customization available.

      1. It’s not basically CM9; its not even based on it. Its an entirely different ROM and base.
