    Is there any way to make the background the messaging app dark in FroyoBB? Also in the messaging threads it shows a spot for your picture and I want to know if there is a way to put my pic there without adding myself to contacts.

    Thanks

    Handcent gives you the option of having a black background.

    Not a fan of handset. I like the thread style of the stock app not the wanna be bubble form from the iPhone, just doesn't appeal to me and wastes space

    I second this -- I can't wait for a black background stock MMS app. I'm LOVING the Froyo stock app.

    I understand. It allows you to change the conversation style to the stock android MMS as well. lol. I get your drift though, no handcent.

    They said the team chaos clean black theme works on BB Froyo. I'm sure that would give you your dark background on the stock MMS. It's worth a try.

    If it worked for you, that's great. It was giving me too many problems when I installed it.

    Just tried to give Handcent another try and I just plain don't like it. I am a fan of the stock app with dark background.

    Glad I'm not the only one who can't stand Handcent.

    Seems to me you could just pull the messaging app using adb and change the background and font color.

    I wanted a way to do this too, but as far as I found there is no way. the best way that I found was to add your number to the contacts list with no name (it will appear at the top of your list as your phone #) and then add the picture you would like to have.

    I'm going to bump this. Hopefully some kind of progress has been made in the last few days possibly hiding in the 9999 page BB Froyo threads.

    It is super annoying waking up in darkness looking at my Smoked Glass BB then I go to open a SMS and BAM! A very bright white background is punching me in the eyes.

    I don't know if I said it before, but I broke down and installed Handcent just for the dark background. I strongly dislike Handcent due to the complexity of the program. True; you can customize pretty much everything you want, but I don't want that. All I want to do is change text size, change the background, and change the LED colour. Handcent's only redeeming quality in my opinion is the option to change the LED color and notification icon for each person individually. I'm just learning to deal with it.

    I am hating this too, and Handcent is terrible IMO.

    Anyone have luck changing the color?

    Also i wish we could get rid of having a pic next to every message. The one at the top of the conversation is just fine.

    I agree I just looked at Handcent screenshots and it looks like crap. I am wondering was changing the background something Google did then removed in Froyo or is it something that ROM Devs did?

    I was trying to do this a couple weeks ago... although im not good with code at all, so after having issues i ended up giving up. i got kinda like the old black mms, except without all the extra settings...just a color change. the only problem was the text was black still, on black background. maybe i'll dig into it some more until someone posts up one that works for froyo.
