I'd like to see a colour scheme which inverts the colours used on the WiiU.
Like instead of the white->black and instead of the blue->red.
That'd look sexy :P
Very good idea, I'll try to do it.

Well done. Does the theme stay even after a reboot of the console once applied?
No, if you run a game, or restart the console, it will delete the colors, because I use TCPGecko, which modifies the ram data.

This seems interesting.
Do you have pictures of how the WiiU looks like with each colour?

Here's the full GitHub page for those interested:

The quality is not very good, but here is an overview.

They are also available on github.
They all look neat :)
Great work on that!
If you give the Black+Red one a try, let us see how it looks :P

The only flaws are that it is not permanent and that you can't put colors like #ffffff or #000000
Ah yeah, that's the detail with WiiU Homebrew, nothing is permanent right now sadly.
You can only make it work by booting homebrew once the console is already booted up.

Btw, the White and Gray images for the menus can't be seen here nor in GitHub.
You can only see the black one.
