Hello there,

IivilSteel Light Theme (2.0.0.4) is soon available at extras-testing and can be installed via App Manager.

What's changed since 2.0.0.3;
- massive color adjustments to make text readable in every app

This theme is based on IivilSteel Theme and it's basically just a light version of the dark IivilSteel.


Please test and then cast your vote here:

Readability issues (even after reboot):

1. Calendar app: All text on the light gray bars (days and dates) is nearly impossible to read (white on light gray).

2. Calendar widget date is white on white-gray, cannot be read.

Otherwise looks good.

Okay. It's a bit more difficult to get text readable on every single app on the phone if you want to have a light background color on main elements.

I did some compromises, but I think it's usable now

New version is available on extras-testing now.

It is much better now.

I do think that the Calendar is a major app, so thanks for getting it to be readable all around. I do have a question about the calendar colors: All views use a black field with orange text. Is that what you intended? It seems completely out of character with the light theme, and may not actually work that well in bright sunlight. (The phone app and contacts look great in sunlight).

Calendar should look like this.

I see what's happening.

Calendar color preference is determining the field color of the calendar day boxes (week view), line-symbol "text (month view), and bar text color (agenda view), When I change the calendar color, all of these also change as described.

This is standard for all themes it seems. Sorry, my bad.

I was thinking that changing themes might automatically choose the best calendar color for a particular theme, but I'm nearly certain this would not meet with universal approval.

Great work!
