    Is that rom not available anymore? If it is still available, I'd use a pc & 7zip to pull it, place it on the phone then place it in /system/app with a file explorer. As long as it was still compatible

    Makes sense. If you have a computer & want to try it, get this, http://www.7-zip.org, & the rom on your computer. Open the rom with 7zip & go to /system/app. Find the mms.apk, put it on your computer then place it on your phone. Then move it to /system/app with a file explorer, set permissions & reboot.

    Wanna add this; if your rom isn't de-odexed, stock roms aren't, you may need to move the mms.odex file too. It'll be in the same place, /system/app.

    Yep. But you'll know when you open the system/app folder with a file explorer. There will be other odex files there

    You can try without adding the 1st. But I was thinking that if they went together in one rom, they may need to be together in the other. But as always, have a good backup handy.

    That may be because something on the other rom controlled the colors. And now it's on a different one, that something is not there to make it look like it did. But that's just a guess.

    I'm not sure if there's any de-odexed roms out for your phone. But those are theme-able. And give you more control over what apps look like
