You know, the "theme colors", i.e., the one's that appear on the settings on the Auto Rotate, WiFi, Screen Brightness (etc.) widgets. Right now they are green. I also have these "theme" colors in the quick settings menu. I was wondering...can they be changed?

Also, I have the orange "theme" color for the stock music application. Can this be changed? Or are these colors standard for the updated software version the M8 is currently using?

Thanks ahead of time.

I don't think you can change them individually. If you go to Settings > Personalize > Theme, you will see the preinstalled themes. The strip above the wallpaper image shows the highlight colors.

Looks like that's it. Kinda a pain to change your background after each theme change, considering I only wanted to change the theme color of the buttons, and not the actual background.

But it works.

Thanks!

It should ask you if you want to use the wallpaper with the selected theme, at least it does for me. That way you don't have to change the wallpaper with each theme

Wow. I must have sub-consciously clicked "yes", thinking it was asking if I was sure if I wanted to change the theme.

I just took a look at it and this does come up for me as well.

Awesome! Thanks.

Edit: in the stock HTC music app, the themes do in fact change the color. So you can change the red to black, yes. There's also little things that change with it too, like in the keyboard predictive words are highlighted in the selected them color

Red music player? Which one?

As far as I can tell the themes affect the color for BlinkFeed, quick toggles, and settings menu. Might be more but that's all I can think of right now

You don't have to change the wallpaper everytime. When the pop up asks if you want to change the wallpaper to the theme wallpaper , just tap no. It'll change the theme colors but keep your same wallpaper

What about the keyboard? That green color is driving me crazy! I changed my theme to the dark grey, but the keyboard is still green!!

Maybe just a thought this whole themes built into Sense 6.0 will be the start of something bigger with Sense 6.5 or even a future update to Sense 6.0..

I've seen in the review video for Pocketnow that they had it once at a blue themed color. How exactly do I do that? From the 3 theme colors I see are green, orange, and, purple but he clearly had blue if I'm not mistaken. I do see a blue above where the purple theme can be selected but I have no idea if you can switch it to that exact color or not. Is it possible?
