    Ok after 2 days of trying to get my inverted themed talk to not fc with UD 3.0 and after hours of searching, I've decided I'm gonna have to break down and beg for help. I looks to me like i'm the only person having this problem but looking at the themes that have been released, i don't think anyone else is theming talk. Is anyone on this team using UD 3.0 and if so have you been successful with using an inverted talk.apk? I'm really frustrated. grrrrrr

    Haven't tried either the rom or the new talk in GB. Post the .apk and I will try to load UD 3.0 today or tonight.

    The man himself is gonna help me! Woot! I really appreciate it dude :D http://www.droidthemers.com/corinacakes/misc apks/Talk.apk

    All of my other inverted apps work fine (gmail, vending, fb). I've tried every possible scenario imaginable to make this work and no dice....thanks so much.

    P.S. Let me just tell you something odd that happened. With my themed inverted talk.apk on the rom I was getting talk messages from ppl and could see what they said in my notification pulldown but when i'd try to open talk it would just forceclose :icon_eek:

    Is it just me getting those annoying redirectingat.com messages? I get them using chrome on the PC and get them in the regular browser on the phone. Happens with any link I click on for the forums.

    The old talk wont work and i dont think theres anything you can do to get it to work(I could be wrong). I was working on the one for gingerbread and have everything done except the bgs in conversations( I know thats the biggest part lol). I couldnt find those for the life of me and the folks i pmed didnt have any answers for me . If youd like I can look for that apk and all that has to be done is changing the conversation bgs to black, all text everywhere should be good to go or if anyone knows where those bgs are i can finish it before posting :)

    Theres a link to what ive done so far. Like I said everything is done I think except inverting the chat bgs. FYI this is not really usable due to the fact that I have the text done in the chats so you cant read any of it but if someone wants to help out go for it

    Pretty sure the backgrounds are in the smali code. I haven't been home to look through anything. Might have to wait until next week when my schedule clears, lol

    Cakes I have been saying the Inverted Gtalk (Froyo) isn't Gingerbread compatible since December, ask Jatx - he has been listening to me complain about it ever since :D

    I thought I had it, but realized it was just the regular background and when I went into a conversation itself, it was still white. However, I have got HALF of the list inverted now. The incoming, but not out going messages. Half way there...

    This was done without any smali editing, so I'm assuming that the other part isn't...I'm just overlooking it.

    The background color for received messages is in Colors xml in the Values folder. You'll find it here:
    <color name="received_chat_color">#ffeffbff</color>

    However, the main background color isn't there. That's just an overlay. Cakes and I spent a few hours trying to figure out the damn thing, with no luck. It must be in smali like Bowers suggested. I pulled out every XML and PNG from my themed inverted Talk I use on Froyo and it installed and changed everything...BUT that. Argh. So frustrating. I get lost when trying to decipher smali. Not my strong suit to say the least.
