    When in the messaging app, and i click in the text field to open p the keyboard, the keyboard ends up covering the last few texts. Old versions of messaging app didnt do this that i can remember. Dont know if its 12.31 or the modded edition flash. Anyone else have this problem and know a fix?

    Solution!

    ok first you need to download this file (sorry its megaupload. not sure how to post it any other way). Its just the old mms.apk from the last release.
    Place this file on your sdcard and then open up terminal on your droid.
    type in these exactly as you see them, pressing enter after each code snippet.

    Code:
    su
    If you get a popup press allow
    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    This will mount your system so we can replace the old Mms.apk
    Code:
    cd /system/app/
    set the main directory to /system/app/
    Code:
    mv Mms.apk Mms.apk.back
    makes a backup of the old Mms.apk (just incase you have problems)
    Code:
    mv /sdcard/Mms.apk /system/app/Mms.apk
    moves the old apk to the system/app folder.
    Code:
    mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    unmounts your system
    Code:
    reboot
    reboots your system.

    Hope this helps!

    I noticed that it doesn't actually show up in the system for some reason sometimes. If you have this problem navigate to /system/app find Mms.apk. Click the package then clicking install should fix this problem.

    It doesn't appear because you forgot to set permissions to 644:

    chmod 644 /system/app/Mms.apk

    Installing it after moving it to system just wastes internal storage, as you'll have the app in both system and data.

    it didnt work for me. hmm... i tried to reboot too but still didnt get anything.

    i guess it will work if you just rename the old Mms.apk to Mms.apk.back and install the other.

    worked for me

    i pushed it from my computer rather than mv

    also did the permission fix, but dont know if it made a difference.

    Anyway, thanks

    You can also do it with root explorer. Extract old mms from 12.24, rename current mms.apk to mms.apk.bak, paste new mms.apk, change permissions to rw-r--r--, reboot. I just did it and it worked for me.

    the file should already be 644 thats default.

    If it's being moved/copy/pushed from PC or SD card then it defaults to something other than 644; hence why mikedmor pushed Mms.apk to system but it didn't pop up on his home screen.
