    You either need to nandroid or you'll have to find the stock apk or flashable zip (if there is one).

    Everything's fine now. I just uninstalled Messenger and restored using my old backup (before flashing the new MMS app) from Titanium and viola! Original.
    However, I found a BETTER looking Messenger theme installed via .apk

    [MOD] 4.0.4 Black MMS - RootzWikiBut the .apk didn't work. It "failed to install application," dammit. I really like the way this looks too. I'd really like it to work..

    That's the one I use. You need to rename the messenger extension to bak. Then move the new apk into /system/apps then reboot if it doesn't show up immediately. Don't try to install it like a data app or you'll get an error.

    Woah, I'm really unsure of how to do that. I have Root Browser and I know I can rename files with that. But I wouldn't know how to do anything else. Still a n00b at this :(

    I use root explorer, but I downloaded root browser lite to try and give you a step by step.

    1. Scroll to system and click
    2. Click app
    3. Navigate to mms.apk
    4. Long press mms.apk and click rename
    5. Change .apk to .bak
    6. Navigate to your apk you downloaded
    7. Long press on the apk and copy
    8. Navigate back to /system/app
    9. Click paste
    10. Reboot if messenger does not show in app drawer.

    No problem. That's what this forum is for. And if you ever want to go back to stock, just delete the themed apk or rename it to .bak and rename the stock mms back to .apk.

    Yea, that's what I'm using. I'll post the link to the deodexed ROM that I'm currently on. I recommend getting the kernel too. Will post that link as well when I get to my computer.

    Hm, you may not have to wipe everything. But I'm not totally sure. Perhaps the link will elaborate more on it. Like I said, I'll post the links when I get to my computer..

    Here is the ROM I flashed that includes the 4.0.4 update and other useful mods:

    IMM30B 4.0.4 | Stock,rooted,deodexed,zipaligned,busybox,insecure boot + mods zips - RootzWiki

    Caution: The Facebook Sync DID NOT work for me. Erased my contacts AND couldn't back them up! :mad:

    And here are some kernels:

    Leankernel: Minimalistic Kernel (2.4.1, 3/7/12) - RootzWiki

    I'm currently using the "stable" one. Works great so far!

    And here's the link for the black Messenger:

    [MOD] 4.0.4 Black MMS - RootzWiki


    Follow syndicate0017's instructions on that and you should be good to go.

    NOTE: When I flashed the ROM, I was on stock 4.0.2. Just unlocked and rooted. No mods or ROM's over. So it turns out
    you may have to wipe :frown: BUT, you can backup all your stuff with Titanium Backup, I believe...

    You could always just ask me :)

    2 things... what do you like about the other mms over mine? Always looking to improve.

    And no need to wipe phone I don't believe. Let me make one that's installable to your data folder (like market apps do)

    I used yours for awhile but the thing I didn't like about it was the white borders around each message. And the straight up black.
    I like this one better because it has the gradient grayish and the ICS blue colors. It just looks more stock to me..
