    Since we got custom themes working on switch we have been stuck on a major issue: home menu's SZS files are illegal to share because they contain copyrighted data.
    This is the reason why I developed the nxtheme format: it's a custom container for switch themes that's 100% legal and that works on every firmware.
    Use this thread to post your own custom themes, if you have any question ask in the Switch theme injector release thread.

    TLDR; Now themes are nxtheme files, they can be installed with NxThemes Installer on any switch. nxtheme files are legal and can be shared here. DO NOT SHARE THE SZS FILES.

    How to share custom themes:
    1) Make a theme like you normally would
    2) Click "build nxtheme" instead of "patch and save"
    3) Post the output nxtheme here.
    That's it. As you can see the process has been totally reworked and this time it's much easier for end users.

    How to install custom themes:
    1) Download NXThemes installer on your switch (it's also available on the homebrew appstore)
    2) Copy the nxtheme file in the themes folder on your sd
    4) Install the theme and reboot

    You may also find links like the ones below, those are Auto-Theme links, it's the old way of sharing themes, when you open them it will automatically download nxtheme files you can install.

    Where can i find custom themes ?
    You can look in the download center, in this thread and on this subreddit

    So I'll be the first:

    GBATemp theme:

    With Doge's layout: link

    upload_2018-10-31_22-2-2.png
    With zaigenshi's layout: link
    (This only displays the first user account)​

    Happy sharing :)
    Also a huge shout out to Costello who enabled the download center to work with Auto-Theme

    I suppose when you upload themes to download center, you need to make different urls for each part you want to theme? home, lock, user, settings, etc.
    it'll generate one szs for each?
    so you can mix different theme, a gbatemp theme on main screen, a pokemon theme on lock screen, etc.

    great work on all the theme apps, website, webbapp and how to share it :)


    edit:
    Hint for theme uploaders
    maybe something which can be useful to people uploading a theme to download center :
    You can add each part of a theme (home, lock, settings, etc.) as "upload new version", instead of creating a new download item in the center.

    adding a "new version" to the existing theme in the download center will just attach it to the current theme and prevent having multiple listed themes for each part of the "same theme", you'll find all your attached version in the history/download tab.
    then, edit the main page of the download to add auto-theme links to latest version of each dds.

    Yes, each part has its own szs and its own link, if people like this way of sharing themes in the future i may implement theme "packs" that with a single url download all the szs parts

    The link doesn't work for me, the image is not in the right dds format, the website for some reason uses the right format only for jpg images. Also that aconvert link will work only for a few days because they don't store the images for ever.
    This is the reason why i said to check that the theme actually works before posting the link

    The dds works now but you're still using the link from aconvert, quoting their privacy policy:
    They will delete that link soon, you have to download the dds and upload it either on the gbatemp's download center or another supported host, just read the guide

    You should provide the Auto-Theme link for each part.
