    I agree, infact I wish all those messaging apps were like Handcent. So many appearence and notification options!

    I did find a stock MMS app (i think it was taken from the Cyanogen ROM) that actually gives you more options like LED color and you can have a black background. I dont use his ROM. Maybe the Talk app is in dark theme too?? If so you could pop that out and into your system? Just a thought...

    My gtalk main screen is black, with a grey online status bar.. Is this any different from stock? I have no idea what the stock one looks like. The only white in the app is the chat window itself. I could look into the res folder and find the pngs involved for you.

    The opening screen is black, dark themed... however when you start a chat the chat screen is white... like the original unmodified MMS app

    Hmm, changing the background of the chat screen to black should be easy enough. Just have to find and modify whichever xml file to change the text color from white to black now. Same for background color.

    Here is the Talk app with the background in black, but when you type something it has a white box and black text still. I have to run to work but will finish tonight when I'm home. It also has some other goodies thrown in, high res menu icons and app icon because I was modding the app I use, once I finish it I will theme the stock one for those that want it, or people can keep going with what I started.

    Just remove the .zip and push to system/app/

    It works for me. The icon/shortcut changed and the menu's are colorized. The background is black, but that is not very noticeable since the messages take up 99% of the screen and that is still black text and white background. Or something like that?
