    All right -- a lot of people put modified stock messaging applications in their ROMs. I kind of like them more than Handcent recently. However, when I switch ROMs, obviously some have them and others don't. Is there any way I can pull them from a ROM and install them on other ROMs that I switch to?

    I do this all the time using root explorer.on your comp take the Rom mms.Apk out of the Rom you want and save it to your sdcard. Then use root explorer and long press and copy the mms that you just placed on your SD card. Then go to your system/app folder click mount r/w. At the top then rename the mms. Apk to mms.apk. bak for safe keeping. Then paste the one you copied in that folder. The long press and click permissions and check read and write under user check only read under groups and check only read under others then reboot and your done. Oh yeah before you reboot check mount r/o. At the top of root explorer then reboot
