    I just flashed it and it looks great. Quick question though, over on XDA they were saying something about the mobile indicator not showing up and that being an issue. There is a modified version over there. What is the mobile indicator? Is it an issue with this one at all?

    The mobile indicator is there - it kind of fades in with the backdrop, you just have to look close...it's not an issue for me

    So I noticed your version of GV was a bit outdated. This isn't the newest version but it's newer then the one you guys have, and it's inverted and it's build # 0.4.1.26

    Just change the .zip to .apk and install with any file manager. I have signed the app so it should just install normally.

    Tallica - I think I kept this older version for a reason - something to do with friends and family...does that ring any bells ?

    That does sound familiar TP. Something about changing the #'s GV connects through. I don't use GV for anything but Visual Voicemail so it's not a big issue for me.

    I just wasn't sure if the build I posted had those changes or if it's the newer ver that is in the market now.

    That's it - they are there but hard to see, you can always change out that .png for something a little more visible

    Thanks for the reply. I attached a modified version of the inverted gtalk with those pngs more visible. The little android guy shows up as grey now, so he's easy to see. I didnt do this myself, I found it over at XDA so all credit goes to them.

    To install this, rename to Talk.apk, then use root explorer or adb to push it to the system/app folder. Then just set permissions as rw-r--r--, reboot, and you're good to go.

    Right after this install, my Market informed me of an update to G-Talk. I thought this theme would withstand an update? It went right back to the white background... Is anyone theming the latest update?

    Pretty sure you're talking about google voice, because I've installed both talk apps in this thread and they were up to date. The reason google voice isn't up to date is because its a version that doesn't keep switching numbers when it dials out, so you can use it with friends and family more easily. And I don't think a themed app can remain themed through an update since updates replace the file.

    What .pngs did you change to make it more visible? They look great in the version you uploaded but the text for custom status (where you can change your status is black on black). I'd like to change the .pngs in the version I uploaded, then Talk would be perfect.

    Thanks

    Tallica - I extracted the "watermark" icon and placed it in my talk.apk and it looks the same - maybe I had the wrong .png, but I don't think so

    Which watermarked icon TP?
    I'm assuming what he changed was the "little android guys on the right side of the screen (right beside the indicator showing available or away). In the version pyro uploaded those images are more visible but like I said you can't see what custom status you want to change to cause the text is black on black.

    The version I uploaded has the statuses visible but the "little android guys" can be barley seen, I was just gonna combine the 2.

    I ripped the 2 apks apart but the .pngs I thought they were are the same in both files. So that is why I was looking for what .pngs pyro changed.
