Since black screen’s root cause and solution is identified, this month’s mission is to release all related projects with black screen fixes applied. But releasing with just black screen fixes is kind of boring so I’ll include some other updates as well. For Windows 8 Transformation/UX Pack, I fixed some reported bugs with new Windows 7 themes. It looks really great on my laptop and highly customizable for Modern/Metro/Glass UI. I wonder why not much of people found this gem.

UxStyle Black Screen Fixer – Emergency patch for UxStyle users

With black screen solution proposed by Alex Ong (eXAKR), I created emergency patcher while waiting for Rafael’s official updates with black screen bug fixed. I also include adding UxStyle service in safe mode as Rafael suggested to do too. It’s highly recommend to apply this fix if you’re running custom themes with UxStyle, UXTheme Multi-Patcher, Windows 8 Transformation/UX Pack or OS X Mavericks Transformation/UX Pack.

If you already have black screen problem and have trouble running this fix, press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to invoke Task Manager and run new task from there.

UXTheme Multi-Patcher 10.0 – 8/8.1 Glass theme is now supported

UXTheme Multi-Patcher 10.0

I planned to release UXTheme patcher updates with 8/8.1 glass support yesterday someone reported UXTheme Multi-Patcher caused infamous black screen bug just before releasing it… Well, I was terrified. How could such a service patching theme engine files through memory patching lead to this? So I digged up some search about ‘UxStyle black screen’ and found these

Further investigation reported that even Microsoft update itself randomly caused it sometimes. Although the chance to get black screen from UxStyle is very low but I’ll apply permission fixes to all related files hoping this will secure your system from black screen bug after patching. If you have any Transformation/UX Pack installed, please reinstall UXTheme Multi-Patcher to make sure you won’t get in trouble after applying updates. I’ll update Windows 8 projects soon with these issues covered.
