Actually, it wasn't LCARS that was broken, it was GPE that disregarded
some of the system colors. If you tried any of the other dark themes,
they all had the same issue. The problem comes from apps observing the
system font colors but disregarding all the other system colors,
specifically backgrounds. If those apps would at least let you pick
your own colors, it would help.
