    How to invert colors in Gmail.apk message display screen?

    How do you make it look like Motorola's Email.apk app? I just want to invert black on white to white on black. I think the Gmail app is assaulting on the eyes in the dark whereas the Email app from Motorola is very darkness-friendly. Think when you first wake up and the first thing before even turning on the light is to check emails... just me? haha. Anyway, it's worse than turning on the light to look at Gmail when it is black on white lol.

    Anybody can help? Thanks!

    Just a suggestion as I have not tried this, but maybe it can be changed by decompiling the .apk with the apktool. Then taking a look at the color or colors.xml in the values folder. Again I have not tried this just a suggestion.
    If you like what I do, thanks

    Yeah, I would love for gmail to look like the regular email. If anyone can come up with a way to change it, it would really be appreciated...

    Thanks for the tip. I will definitely be looking into this. I have always been puzzled by the .xml files as they are not plain text, their extensions are miselading

    So I decompiled the Gmail.apk using apktool. I took the decompiled files over to eclispe in slackware and edited the style.xml (I just inverted the colors, where I saw black I put white and vice versa). I then exported my newly created apk file and ... it's only about half the size of the original. Crap. Needless to say it does not work. I think it is because apktool does not decompile everything, and therefor does not give enough source from which to create a working APK.

    I am sure the gmail app is part of the AOSP but I do not see it in what I downloaded. I see other apps, like phone, launcher, Email (a motorola app in the AOSP???)

    I am too much of a noob for this lol any help?

    If its just for you personally why don't you download Dark Edge and grab the g-mail files and mess with those... its a start...
