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.
