The same happened on iOS when Apple changed permissions in iOS 8.3.

When Waze v4 was released for iOS the devs had allowed iTunes file-sharing giving us back the ability to easily do it without jailbreak, so don't give up hope!

See the filenames in my last posting 3 postings before.
You need to copy the .lua files into the directory, they are used to generate the color scheme.

Android = v5.0.1
Waze = 4.21
Old waze had a skins folder and the schema files were in default/day/12 and default/night
New waze still has a skins/default folder but no day or night folders and no files called schema.
But there are 4 files called schema_day schema_day_gray_scale schema_night schema_night_gray_scale
The contents of these the old schema so I overwrite them with my schema restart waze, switch scheme from default to map editors and back, even reboot the phone but waze still shows its schema :(

You have to close and restart Waze or even change the color scheme so the changed files are read.
At least on Android (what are you using?) everything still works without any problems.

I suspect that you'll need to jailbreak/Root your device from this point forward :-(

v4.21 - the schema files have gone. There are 4 new ones but they don't seem to be used. If I overwrite them, nothing changes.

I am on 4.4.2 and didn't have any problems lately (always with the latest Waze beta).

As it written in my Signature - 6.0.1. Only last two versions have this issue...

Yeah, they broke it and apparently have no intention of bringing it back as it would most likely be an easy fix.
