Until recently, I was completely oblivious to the fact that you can change the way TWRP looks. Actually, to be quite honest, I thought that it looked great the way it was. However, it was pointed out to me that you can now download new themes and even make your own! I haven’t made any themes myself, but for now, I thought I would share how you can change your theme by downloading new ones.

It may seem daunting, but truth be told, it was actually really simple. Once TWRP is installed, all you have to do is download one that is appropriate for your device. Since I am on TWRP 3+, I downloaded mine from a user named fichl on XDA, you can find it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/themes/theme-twrp-3-0-0-0-dark-stock-colors-t3310235

Be sure to slap his thanks button!

In particular, I downloaded the fichls_twrp3_theme_pack_portrait_v2_marshmallow_flashable.zip

After rebooting my phone into recovery mode, I simply pressed install, navigated to the directory with the zip file, and chose to install it. After installing it, you either need to reboot into recovery, or press:

home -> advanced -> reload theme.

Now I can change the theme by going to: home -> advanced -> change theme!

That was the coolest TWRP modification I have ever done, with instant gratification for minimal effort! So, I thought I’d share. Enjoy!

Linux – keep it simple.
