DarQ provides a per-app selectable force dark option for Android 10.
It uses an accessibility service and root or ADB to allow you to pick just the apps you want to use the force dark theme on. Force dark is a hidden option, provided by the Android system, which intelligently inverts light backgrounds to dark, and dark text and icons to light. It allows a majority of third party apps, such as Snapchat, Instagram and LinkedIn, as well as first-party Google apps which do not have a dark theme (such as the Play Store) to have a dark mode.
DarQ also provides an option to apply the system dark theme (as well as selectable force dark) only after sunset and before sunrise, protecting your eyes when it's most needed.

- DarQ now works without root! Use the ADB script from the XDA thread or GitHub repository to run the required background service to use DarQ without needing to root your device.
- Fixed root detection
- Added OxygenOS support
- Added a search box to the app list
- Added a filter for system apps (hidden by default) in the app list

Works quite well without root. Unfortunately some apps disabled the functionality which makes this app worthless at some points.

Works good. Unfortunately "Force dark mode" always disables itself after rebooting.

working great but it has some bugs. I've disabled force dark on some apps but has been showing on those app too. another problem is dark mode isn't optimized. please make sure this . dark mode on Facebook isn't working.

Few bugs, one and most major one is, seems to remove Tasker, autoinput, nova launcher, and a few others accessabity permissions, (2nd) Facebook "lite" breaks (NBD) as it has a dark mode, but on Samsung A50 Android 10 one UI 2.0, the fingerprint scanner doesn't recognize stored ones for apps that use it, when the apps are enabled in DarQ. (3rd) I myself have a request, seeing as most here use adb for one thing or another, an know about adb wifi in Tasker, it would be much nicer than running a bat file to the sh file and back, I know it is for the masses, but it would be nice to be able to automate this after boot (with Tasker) since adb wifi is already approved. Basically being able to approve script.sh without the bat file, I don't understand Java stuff so have no idea what to edit lol.

Does exactly what it's suppose to do. Zero complications.

It works effortlessly just pull the toggle button and bang... I works like i supposed it should do. From system app to apps like paytm also got dark theme 😂️ Thank you for making such an simple ui app

Works just as intended, however a whitelist for the "force all" mode would be nice.

Works half the time, i have to restart some apps for it to apply, like phone and contacts.
