    Calendar Dark Theme works like a charm for me, Contacts doesn't though. Does anyone already know how to fix that without actually reloading the OS?
    I tried loading the os again
    It worked until I restored. So no go with restore.

    Installed with no issues.
    Like the active frame on the calendar. No more ugly green?

    Not sure if just a first time thing but once set up I rebooted. Both were white when it came back up. Setting said dark though .

    Changed it to light closed then set it back to dark closed. That worked. Will see if it happens again the next time I reboot.

    Thanks BerryLeaks!

    Got both Calendar and Contacts working!


    1. Full Backup using Sachesi (Just in case)

    2. Sideloaded the sys.pim.calendar.bar and sys.pim.contacts.bar using Sachesi

    3. Once completed, I done a hard reset by holding down both volume rockers till you get to the BB bootscreen.

    4. Gave my Z10 a few minutes to fully start up then I opened the calendar app, swiped down from the top and selected 'settings' then 'General' then selected 'dark' then i minimised and closed the app. Reopen the calendar app and it looked beautiful!

    5. Then I opened The contacts app, swiped down from the top, selected 'settings' and then select 'dark' (i didnt go 'back' after selecting 'dark'), I then minimised and force closed the app by long presses the X till the app closes as this worked for a couple of people in a previous post. Reopen the contacts app and it was dark also!

    Note: I didn't lose my contacts or calendar entires.

    I realise one or more of my steps may not be necessary, but it worked for me and after reading this thread it appears quite a lot of people are unable to get the contacts app to be dark, even a few on the same os leak as me.

    Anyway hope these steps work for others and I look forward to future leaks!

    @Dealz417: Funny, you had the very same idea I did, 'cept for the backups - but hey, can NEVER be too careful, eh!

    Wasn't sure if I was going to like the dark theme or not. But, just loaded both bars and I became an instant fan. Works great on both contacts and calendar. This really does look good on the Z.

    Thanks BerryLeaks for the file and thanks to BlackBerry for listening and giving users the option.

    Did exactly the same, before I restored after the reinstall I was actually able to change the theme in my contacts app but after restoring it failed to change it again. Any suggestions?
    my question is after you loaded the bars and before your restore, did you do a wipe?...if the answer is yes then you need to reinstall the bars. If the answer is no, then i got nothin'.

    So I didn't get the contacts app to work in black, but I also noticed that any change I do in the contacts app setting doesn't save either; so the "bug" might be overall, therefore the issue where some cannot get the dark theme ti work.

    I will try using Sachesi and Chrome to upload the same files and see if that makes any difference. I used BBv10 the first time.

    If not, I'll try going back to the previous app builds and then use different methods. I'll also see if that "bug" is present on the older app versions.

    Thanks for the mention of SideSwype, Kris!

    If you haven't, check it out. https://sideswype.me

    On a related note, so you can do this fully OTA, we've mirrored the bars in a zip. https://sideswype.me/bars/contacts_calendar_dark.zip so you can unzip and install directly on your device using SideSwype.
    Installed Sideswype using Chrome, went well. VPN setup flawless then left the phone alone for half an hour and when I returned the device had switched off. First time i've had the device shutdown without me initiating it. Is this common? Normal?
