    First few days it was cool,although I needed like a week to find a theme that actually works because of the lack of support for my A50,even so,not all my apps could get themed,but the ones that could looked really nice,fast forward few weeks and all my themed apps started crashing at startup one by one,first was google,them gmail,then maps and more if I kept it on,almost did a factory reset and thinking to reinstall the original firmware if it wasn't for my hunch...glad I found the problem.

    mod apk Used to work on my s7 but won't on my one plus 7Tpro, I have Andromeda downloaded & connected, I have the swift black theme that supports one plus devices. But eveytime I open the substratum theme engine it says cannot fall back to root... Isn't the whole point of paying for andromeda is to be able to do it without root? What am I doing wrong?

    apk Took over my phone and installed other sub apps I didn't know about. I just wanted to change the clock back over to the right top side of my screen in Android 9, not install and learn a whole new interface with questionable permissions. I use an HTC phone because their "Sense" UI has always been the best interface of any phone out there -- switching a clock's position isn't worth losing that.

    apk for nougat Using a Samsung device, don't even bother if you do too. They link you to a version called Sungstratum that you have to pay for to even get, while others get this for free. I understand the differences in UI would require alterations but don't lock specific users behind a paywall just because of their phone.

  5. Wizzdome-avatar



    android 10 I used to use this quite a bit back in the day to theme my devices. I have not used it since oreo because it totally lost compatibility and thems for me. My main reason for theming my device was to reduce the light output by having dark themes with an easier to read text. This app used to do that for me. It was not quite so easy to use when it comes to installing themes but once you figure it out it usually works fine. I keep it in my library in case one day i may need it again.

    without root One of the best android project ever, app like this keep me stay with android. People don't know what there doing, get something messed up and underate this app. App been not updated around a year, app devs it need some update..

    pro apk 10/10, Made my phone look great by just downloading a theme and then selecting it in the app, loved it, one of the few apps that made me consider rooting my new phone. The only problem I saw was some apps crashing, but that probably is because of the theme I was using, disabling the theme for the app stopped it for working, so it wasn't a big deal at all. By far the best theming app I ever used. Good job guys, Keep it up!

    Verification failed. That's all it says now. I've been using this app and enjoying the themes for months now. I tried force stopping and clearing the cache. It didn't work. I can't uninstall Substratum and Andromeda because l have layers installed. I know if I uninstall those apps, my phone will become extremely slow and be completely unusable. I know this because I made that mistake when I first got this app. You need to implement a way that can uninstall the layers even if verification has failed. Now I need to figure out a way to get this working again at the risk of my device.

    App works great most of the time, I believe yesterday a new update was released, and now whenever I try to launch substratum it tells me verification bhas failed, and to force close it and tell open. If that doesn't fix it, then reinstall it. I did both, neither work. So now I have a non working app, and no way to uninstall my themes. Can the developer please release a fix for this issue ?

    I don't know why so many people on non-rooted devices complain about this app and andromeda which i wont mind paying for which google is making it hard for the use of custom overlays. i bet most of them dont read the descriptions and changelogs of both apps and their prefared themes. they don't appreciate the effort you guys take to make all this happen and your support is great. continue the great work even though it aint perfect but it works. been using it since 2017.

    Since the latest update, my phone has been doing some wonky stuff. A few apps stopped working all together. First, let me be clear. The only thing I use this app for is to skin the navbar at the bottom on Android 7.1.1 Shamu. No themed apps, etc. Yet, right after the 1007 update, Weather Underground wouldn't connect and pull the weather. It would simply say "check back later." And Soundcloud wouldn't play any tracks. It gave off an error as well. I'm also having issues uninstalling and reinstalling apps, downloading them from the Play Store and other various weird glitches. Substratum is the only thing that has changed on my system. Still, I love this app. I'm going to try some things to see if they fix the issue.

    The themes are a hassle to set-up; I probably rebooted my phone about twenty times now to test out each theme and their options thoroughly, but after a while, it becomes easier. Substratum also doesn't officially support mixing overlays from multiple themes, so you can't mix-and-match and pick out the parts (eg. font, accent, color) you like, making it feel pretty limited in terms of customizability, but that just makes it funner since you'll be able to play around with the app!

    Either all the free themes are incomplete / defective, or the theme engine doesn't work for me.

    My expectations were very high. I purchased the app, but every time i go through the required steps with my pc , something goes wrong and the window in my pc automatically gets closed. I thought that's a problem of my pc, so i tried using a laptop and the same thing happened. I repeated again and again, but all remained the same. Really disappointed. I sent a mail to the developer but there was no reply from that side. Worst purchase experience with an app so far.

    one of the first apps i install whenever i am setting up a new device. it takes the android experience to a whole new level!! Makes my phone soooooo pretty!! AND FREE (some forget)! I have never had a problem with it. In any ROM or phone. most issues here are users that dont read or fail to understand that substratum does not have anything to do with a theme having problem. It is like blaming the electrical power company for your IMPORTED chinese gadget not having the same outlet as your house.

    I've read the update notes and read through the comments but haven't figured out why it's crashing on me. I'm fully rooted on Nougat OMS and never had an issue before. Forgive me if I'm just dumb and can't understand if I need to do something but is it just not compatible with 7.1.2 anymore? Or just have to do an extra step? I get a toast notf. Saying something about Magisk but I just use Supersu and really don't want to use Magisk.. I love substratum I can't live without it, you guys are amazing and I hope I'm still able to use this!

    This app is amazing I used it a lot while I was on Android oreo, I'm going to miss those moments where I had to update the themes and install them, where I uninstalled the themes and installed others. Now that my Galaxy S8 is on Android Pie (One UI), I can not do that anymore, I can no longer install my themes or change everything because Google no longer allows that. Please substratum team look for a solution to reuse the themes. If you make those themes re-used, I'd appreciate it.

  22. Richard Jones-avatar

    How anyone can give this anything less than 5 stars is beyond me. The devs quite clearly ask you to read the instructions. It's extremely complicated to get themes working on all sorts of ROMs and 99% of the time, it works. I admit, it can be a little confusing or daunting but as long as you read the instructions you'll realise it is not for the noob. But rookies and pros will be just fine. Android should have this theming engine as default.

  23. ANAS DOUMA-avatar



    Why does it keep saying "Verification has failed?" This is super annoying. I don't wanna keep installing old version of it. What's worse, I just upgraded to Note9, and old versions say the same thing!! Please fix ASAP. This issue has been out for a long while. (Review will be modified when problem is fixed).

    great app, would be a better experience if my phone was rooted ive had more updates on apps in the past month while using it and having to keep going back to the computer to reinstall the themes gets a bit of a pain in the neck. like i said would be brilliant on a rooted phone. if your not rooted its good for a few days.

    I had given a 2 star review... I spent a while day figuring it out. Clearing Google Play data to verify the apps, rooting the device to auto connect on reboot and a lot of stuff. Works best with root, this much I can say. And when it works it works awesome ! Dev were prompt on reply (not solving though) and active, good job. I love the app now. 😅

    This app is crazy what you can do with it!!! there are so many options its truly endless. you can work with other users themes or you can build one yourself... ive used this for several iterations of Andriod and it is essential for having a unique Android experience. If you dont like it... go back to your IPhone!!! Hahahaha!!!

  27. Ryan H-avatar

    Ryan H


    Don't listen to the negative reviews, people just don't know how to use the app because you need root and it's NOT beginner friendly. Granted, this app should probably have a link to XDA or something in the menu where it tells you how to use it. All of the issues I've ever had using this app were theme related, I've never had an issue with this app.

    I love Substratum. Simply a must have app for any Android themer. Today's update caused my messaging contact icons to go to default colors. Pixel 3 / Rooted with Magisk. Hopefully this is temporary. I tried both pitch black and swift and they are up to date. I don't get why we can't have black background without all the hassle anyway. Google!?

    The idea is genius and the customizations you can do look incredible and that makes it very difficult to uninstall the app. BUT........ not one theme was without flaws and it seemed like just waiting for another error to pop up. it's a shame someone can't just fix the damn bugs and create a working DARK theme, but this app is at least the closest I've experienced.

    So my initial review disappeared, but as instructed in an email, I went to the link in the description to find support and found that I have to install yet another app to get my issue looked at. This is just a pain in my butt the whole way around. It was always to use this app because I had to do a complete clean install of a theme every time there was an update. Now it's not installing anything. It hangs and nothing works. Now I have to go get some other stupid messaging app and give somebody else my private information just to get to talk to somebody. I hate this thing.

    My entire phone went dark! Took me a while to get it because I'm not an expert. By when I did, my s9+ never looked so good. Very easy on my eyes because screens are so bright already and white background everywhere wasn't doing the trick. You better do your research before digging into your system. It could only help

    Great app guys. Appreciate all the effort of this community. Unfortunately I updated my device to Pie and had to leave this behind. Atleast for now. For anyone who wants to get into this app, guys for some devices its simple others not, things are very specific here, so before you download/buy anything, and before you leave bad reviews, make sure you read everything. If you follow instructions carefully everything should be fine.

    Scrolling in the app is a nightmare, since if you initiate the scroll from anywhere that has a drop down box, it opens and begins scrolling that box, rather than the actual page itself, making it easy to screw up settings and hard to scroll. And with next to no space between sections, it can become nearly impossible to scroll when the theme has a lot of configurable options. Drop down lists, in every other app I've ever used, require a tap to open the list, then can scroll to the option. Opening and scrolling a drop down list instead of scrolling the page is terrible UX. And when reported on Github, the developer blamed it on Google and said to file a bug with Google because it's part of the framework and is intentional. If it was a framework issue, it would affect every app that has drop down boxes, but guess what? IT DOESN'T! So either every single developer of all other apps have managed to work around this and the developer of substratum just doesn't care to fix their broken scrolling and would rather deflect blame to Google, or there's no issue with Google's framework at all, and it's just a lazy developer who doesn't care. I'm inclined to believe the last option, but none of this reflects well on the developer. The functionality of the app otherwise is passable, but the terrible UX and the dismissive response to the bug report earns this developer a FIRM ONE STAR RATING, AND WOULD BE ZERO STARS IF I COULD.

    I used to use this and it was pretty buggy but I'm sure it got better so I went to redownload it after purchasing and I've gotten a system update since then (to 8.0) and it told me I had to get the new app made for 8.0 Oreo. I was excited until I clicked download and it said it costed more money on top of what I already paid for for the original app. I don't currently have money so this is an issue and I really don't think EVERY TIME I UPDATE MY ANDROID VERSION I SHOULD HAVE TO PURCHASE SOMETHING ELSE. Thanks.. EDIT: I'll give four stars because a responsive dev team is a key component of an app.

    Call all those who are unable to install this app, and its companion app, "dummies" all you want. I met your requirement of possessing "some reading skills" and I followed all the instructions to a T, but I cannot get either app to connect nor work, no matter what I try. I suppose I will have to go back to school to learn how to read all over again.

    This app is Awesome!, i like how i was able to modify everything of my phone without having to root it, and getting more customization options than the limited ones of Samsung Themes, i hate the fact about Google restricting OMS on Pie, but, "security", i hope substratum gets the best support under Samsung Android Pie Cheers! 😉

    Rating 5 stars because looking at the sea of incompetent people who review this app is sad. That saying, I do have a problem with the app. Substratum occasionaly fails every attempt at any action I do. It gets stuck on "rebuilding database" or something like that. I have to reinstall the app to get it working again.

    this app used to be great, now it only works for a meager amount of apps. apps that used to work with the theme engine are no longer working and there is now this additional step required for each app to be themed, and it seems sketchy. swift black not working on gmail, chrome, soundcloud, and spotify to name a few. working for snapchat and google app only

    One of the best apps in the Play Store! Used it for months rooted with Nougat and Oreo custom ROMs, it has great potential which can be unlocked by the many themes available (I recommend Pitch Black and Swift Black). It is disappointing to see so many low ratings because of user error or issues with a specific theme that have nothing to do with the substratum app...and this app deserves 5 stars! A big thank you to the substratum team!

    I've had 1 bad noob experience 6 months ago.. And that was not uninstalling a theme before installing another. Ya'll know how that went.. Read instructions a 2nd time thoroughly.. Never had ANY issues since reading instructions thoroughly.. And if you set your settings right, you'll never have to update your theme manually. It's a Proper Themer!! #OnePlus5T

    By far the best theme engine for my Zenfone 3, or for any other Android phone for that matter. After I understood the potential of Substratum I stopped using the stock theme app. And guess what, with proper knowledge you can create your own themes. Feel sorry for the users who couldn't understand the usage and rated 1 star. They can find many guides on the internet to use the app to customize their phones.

    It's good but a pain to change themes and not worth the time spent on it because the results don't look THAT good most of the time. Has compatibility issues with Android 10 devices. Does work with realme/ colorOS

    I didn't root my Nexus 5X using Magisk. I used another method. The old Substratum version didn't need Magisk to work. Now, after having checked the logs I see that the new version needs Magisk to work. So I am stuck with the old substratum. Why the change? Why does the new version need Magisk when the previous one worked fine without it?

    i loved this much more on Oreo but when my note 9 one ui update came, well it's a whole different story. now with Andromeda on the note 9, it will work on pie oneui without root. but i recommend biohazard for Samsung pitch black, and Sprite for Samsung note 9, although the choices have skimmed down from Oreo, like many different Ascents for many and some have no accent, also the biohazard navbar and status bar can only be blue you don't have a choice and some times only the nav bar will stay blue and status bar stats white. I want my Oreo back. but I give 5 stars for Oreo version. there's nothing like it 4.5 for one ui because Ascent changing lost in many apps

    Wont apply any themes or turn the overlay dark. eventually something came up saying that it couldnt fall back to root. i cant root my device without getting device banned from games. edit: just got the phone after using 4.2. also your description calks about rooted and unrooted for different operating systems so i got confused and thought I had Oreo. As for my phone not being supported, maybe a full compatability list would prevent this. No need to get rude.

  53. Links2586-avatar



    Love it but it has issues. Specifically, certain apps (gboard, app store, Gmail, etc) will eventually stop responding. I then have to uninstall the theme, reboot, reinstall the theme, reboot, activate the theme, and it will be good for a few days. Then it will occur again. Happens on multiple themes.

    Yeah.. it is very good app and good job done by developers. Well it could be more interesting if there is preview option for theme. Cause each time you apply a theme to see change view each time you have to reboot your phone so it is kinda sucking activity. Else good job again.

    Install this at your own risk.. Honestly it's beautiful and the theme are amazing and looks great on my phone but know that you signed up for constantly crashing apps or apps that won't even open and a freezing new phone. I used it for a while because I paid for it and all the themes I bought but in the end it wasn't worth it. Dear developer.. Don't get me started on how the themes don't work on y7 even thought I bought Andromeda. My problems are on my Sam A8.

    I used this app for many years on my rooted OnePlus 5. I had no problems with it whatsoever. One day I decided to update from the play store, and ever since then it stopped working. Still on android 8.1. I only updated the app. Now I cant put back or disable any of the overlays. Guess I'll try again when I update to Android 9 or 10 and re r-root OR get a new phone but this app was great when it worked

    Already it used to take a lot of effort to install overlays with help of Andromeda, now the overlays just get stuck while installing. Invested alot of time into making it work, all went to waste .Had put in alot of money and time over the themes to turn my boring stock android UI into something beautiful. All went to waste.

    Ah yes, the classic "buy this other app for this one to work with your version of Android" excuse. "Guess you didn't read the description where it says to get the app without an add-on." Of course, how could I forget to read the description where it explicitly says I need to get Sungstratum for the app to work? An app I TOTALLY don't have to pay for.

    When I was on oreo, this app worked flawlessly. But on Android Pie, this app doesn't work without root. And Andromeda doesn't run on Android Pie. So now, this app is of no use to me. But still, when I was on Oreo, this app allowed me to change themes of phone without rooting, by using Andromeda. Hence, 5 stars.

    This app is garbage! I tryed it on two diffirent phones Android 9, 10 Custom roms Pixel Experience, Lineage OS, MIUI. Whatever phone or ROM i try it just didn't work. Why is this non-working trash so popular? Btw i have always latest Magisk so. Explain me what support this app have, like 15 phone models by 4 diffirent brands?

    Gotten worse and worse overtime, I don't mind plugging it into my computer everytime I want to apply themes, I don't mind have to manually update the themes everytime there's an update, if the app works. It doesn't even work for its own app, I can't uninstall themes, it doesn't clean up old version everytime I install new ones, and it take about 30 mins everytime I want to update themes for my apps. Will not continue to use it for the next phone.

    The best rip off on google play payed for pitch black theme then it made me install this program, then it made me paid for andromeda plugin and in the end didnt finished installation becouse it asked me for every overlay to confirm. And the best part is when u uninstall all, the paid pitch black theme is asking u again to pay as u never bought the application. Clap clap for everyrhing. Best rip off on google play!

    *WARNING* APP WILL CRASH YOUR PHONE!!! My phone would NOT BOOT and keep saying "System UI Stopped"! Googled and found many others have the same problem with this app. Went through hell and back to get my phone working again! REPLY TO DEV: why would i goto the telegram chat BEFORE i have any problems? How would.i even know of, or even care about, the stupid telegram chat when i download the app? People only go to support when they have problems, not to read every single post that every Tom Dick and Hary posted about the app. And, how would i even access support AFTER the problem occured and my phone wont boot? Im lucky i had a TWRP backup. I feel sorry for others who dont. Seriously developer, get real bud.

    used it on two phones so far. one was legacy(marshmallow) and the other is my current one on pie. neither worked on the first try due to ROM issues but overall, the app is simple and easy-to-use. very effective and fast themeing, especially if you have OMS.

    I gave you 5 stats because i dont want the apps rating to go down because of what I see from other people this is a great app. But whenever I attempt enable a theme i get a pop up saying " Substratum could not connect to the Andromeda backend" which means I cant enable themes. I really want to be able to use this app so either update the app or if you can, give me some help to try and fix this issue.

    Works absolutely fine, I am fairly new to rooting, but this process was simple and easy to understand. Bad reviews are likely due to user error and a lack of understanding to what rooting may be. I highly recommend this app if you wish to customize your phone to your liking.

    A free app that forces you to pay for another app to make the free app work...Snarky, negative replies to some reviews made me give a pass on this app. (scroll down and read some) I love to theme, and due to my phone being unrootable, I'd have to use this, but I'm not wasting my money or time on this misleading shite, I'll put up with stock look.

    After installing it I opened it and it says you need samsung addon to theme your device. Then I priced one from play store and also installed some themeswith sustratum. After I restarted my device, there is no changes. I rooted my device and opened substratum without installing Samsung addon. It required Samsung's addon again. It is working fine when I installed AOSP rom in it. Maybe. But in my case it is not working. Model : gt58wifi Android 7.1.1 experience ui 8+

    I like this app for what it does but my phone on the other hand hates this app. So I just bought the flux theme and tried to apply it with the engine and yikes something that said root free really isnt, after i build and enable it finishes but says requires root after i belive it said either the march or may security update. So after it says this i end up restarting my phone and all i get is a black screen saying systemui not responding its a bummer that i cant get the theme i wanted.

    When trying to launch the app, it said that I didn't have a compatible version of android for the app. For some context, I have a s10 and it recently updated to Android 10. I would imagine that it's the version of Android that's messing it up and it's not the developer's fault for it not working on brand new devices.

    Can't use this at all unless I pay for something else it forces me to click. Thought it was free to use, as claimed. EDIT TO ANSWER DEVS RESPONSE: I did read it and didn't feel that I should be forced to buy Andromeda as a piggy-back. My solution was to share my experience and continue with the plethora of actually free options that do the same thing and more. There are endless resources available outside the store. Was genuinely curious about this project though. Oh well I suppose :\

    I didn't update the app nor did I update the playstore yet my subsratum app keeps on crashing. It says verification failed even when I connect it to andromeda.

    I flash roms on a regular basis.This is combatible with most of them(almost all of them).If it doesnt work then flash a better custom rom from a geniune forum(a paid one is better than free forums to be frank). Do try the paid themes;they are really worth the money(probably the only way to support the devs apart from the 5 star rating and a positive review😇). Finally do check the puking features of your rom before raging here.

    based off of what I'veseen, this app is basically one of those virus APK that slow your device to the point where it's almost impossible to use. the idea must have seen easy on paper but if you are really going to go deep into a devices system and having people have to go through things like rooting from third party sites that might steal your info not the greatest idea. you would wonder why the ratings on this app are so low with Rude customer service and a sketchy app design (I see you Char💰)

    Very deceptive practices these developers are using. Doesn't work as described, using a pay to play practice meaning you can only use themes that are paid for Samsung 7.0 +. Will slow your phone down massively and cause all kinds of blackouts and force closing of apps. You've been warned.

    Swift installer does 98% of the function of this app, without massive bugs and issues regardless whether you follow all instructions. And best of all, it doesn't have the snafkeist developer this side of Android.

    Aniel, when it freezes during your application of a theme to one of your apps, just go into Substratum info by holding down on the icon in you list of apps, or go into Apps settings, and Force Close the Substrathsm app. Then return to Substratum and Enable the theme to the app you were Building or Updating ehen it froze. Its a bit tedious but it works

    I don't get the bad rating of this app. It's a complicated app and if you're using some f***d up non vanilla Android ROM it's your fault not substratum. just don't use what you don't understand. substratum has a rescue mod and you only need custom recovery for that. loosing data or getting stock in boot loop means only one thing, "You don't know what you are doing!" They have done such a hard work and you stupid heads give them low rating 😡😠

    Installs for "free" only to say it needs $2 to work. Partial functionality with a pay to upgrade would be acceptable but calling it free is dishonest. Edit: Nowhere in the main description does it say that it requires a paid addon to make a free app work. The app also doesn't indicate any paid addons. A simple statement saying requires paid addons clearly in the description could easily correct things instead of telling a customer RTFM. Certain things shouldn't be buried in the manual.

    Its not for those who don't have patience.i.e for applying any theme you have to restart your phone twice and have to give Andromeda commands every time.You can watch videos for tutorial on YT because you can't get it easily.

    This app has played a huge role in streamlining custom theming for Android. And it's still improving. I've been supportive of devs since the the Layers days. Read instructions and comprehend them please people. This app and Dev are always 5 🌟

    Been using it on my samsung s9+ for a few months and absolutely loved it, but updated to Pie on Dec 24, so now it doesn't work. Do you know when the update will arrive for Pie on samsung? I switched to s10+ but still can't use this, the error says couldn't fall back to rooted mode.

    Buggy and slows my OS. Smh most of the themes don't affect the system, notifications are ridiculous and illegible. Swift Black Substratum Theme makes more than 200 apps black and supports: • Android AOSP Nougat, Oreo and Pie • OnePlus (supports OnePlus 3, 3T, 5, 5T, 6) Oreo and Pie • Samsung (supports S9, S8, S7, Note8, Note9, others) Nougat and Oreo • Nexus Nougat and Oreo • Pixel Oreo and Pie • LineageOS + option to select your favourite system accent on Pie, Oreo, and Nougat OMS!

    "Could not fall back to rooted mode. There are no other theme engines able to be utilized on this device at this current time." OK, thanks. Although I installed andromeda every time I reboot.

    It just crashes while applying the theme . And once somehow it completed applying the theme no difference was seen even though I rebooted my phone. I've even purchased the add-on

    Installed and couldn't even try it. Right out of the get go asking for money to begin using. No trial no way to evaluate. I'm concerned by the fact that many paying users phones had been bricked right after installing paid add on update.

    It works!! The flux white theme was the culprit. Never work with that theme anymore. I used the black one and it was smooth like butter

    With nougat I would've easily given 5 stars but, with Oreo I'm only giving 2 unfortunately. I don't blame it on the developers I think it had much more to do with the recent "security" features implemented by another let's say parent organization. Was great even for Oreo it wasn't that difficult if you have a PC but, recent updates have broken it and it's continuously crashes after applying Swift Black which I find to be the most versatile theme as far as dark themes are concerned.
