    For a lack of a better term, a few months ago someone posted an "app" to change the color scheme of the stock SMS app to black background. It also allowed you to customize the notification LED color.

    Can someone please relink that update file?

    Thanks.

    Try my apk that I use.

    Place in system/app, set permissions, and reboot.

    rw-1 - thanks for the quick response. i'm having to do this for the exact same reason as you, just upgraded to sapphire 2.0.

    anyway, i dloaded the zip, unzipped it, put the apk in system/app. i renamed my orig mms.apk just in case, anyway, i tried to install your mms.apk and it stated that i was replacing a system app. I checked OK, chose Install and then "Application not Installed".

    Any ideas?

    Read post #3 again. You don't install the apk. You replace the original, set the correct permissions, and reboot the phone.
