BigBlu is now working on Oreo and Nougat custom roms based on AOSP and CM/Lineage. It may work on Stock but is not set up to theme all of the stock resources
☆ As I add more and more apps to BigBlu the more it is becoming a necessity to reboot.
Please reboot after you install or update overlays to set all resources☆
Samsung users, BigBlu may theme some of your user apps, but this theme is meant to run on its own framework for AOSP and CM based roms, it was never built for TW. I may make a TW Theme for Samsung devices, so keep up with me on my Google Plus page. Thank you
You need to be on a rom that has all the latest OMS commits for this theme to fully work. Please use the Big Blu Android System Overlay to get the best overall experience when running this theme. Big Blu was made to run on its own Framework. Go thru the list and check the correct overlay choices for your rom, if you have any issues, choose the other choice in the overlay list.
***Please reboot to get all theme resources to set and update*** Thank you
Big Blu is tested on and fully supports N7.1.1-Oreo 8.0.0 – DU11-11.1-12, RR v5.8.1-5.8.5, Screwd v3.1.1-4.0, AICP12.1-13, GZR Tesla v3.7/Validus v13.7, AEX, OwnROM, and CM14-15 using the Substratum Theme Engine. Big Blu should work across many different roms and devices. If you have any issues after applying the theme, please use the Substratum Rescue zip or the Substratum Rescue Legacy zip. You can also go into recovery and navigate to the .substratum folder and delete the ” current_overlays.xml ” or the individual overlay that is causing issues in data/app and reboot.
☆For Gboard to theme use v6.1.171 or lower and choose Material Dark. If you want my buttons/keys to show enable key borders in settings☆
☆Changelog and a List of all System, User and Google apps included☆
If you notice something that needs fixing, or if BB is missing icons for your favorite rom, send me an email at
