CM 9 Nightlies Get Theme Manager Support, AOKP Will Soon As Well

One of the most coveted things about CyanogenMod 7 was the ability to customize the heck out of the ROM. This included the much loved Theme Manager which until now was absent from the CM 9 Nightly builds. So once again users of this ROM will be able to change colors of just about everything. However rather than have it in a Theme Chooser app it’s now in a place that makes much more sense: the Settings Menu. Lockscreen shortcuts have been added as well so you can access your favorite apps straight from the lockscreen.

If you’re on another ROM and feel that you are missing out, worry not. One of the developers of AOKP made it known via Twitter last night that their ROM will be seeing theme manager support here soon. You can always check the CM 9 Nightly page to see if your device is supported and if it is enjoy theming it until your heart’s content. As if that wasn’t enough we also have a video of said theming in action after the break. Enjoy!
