Mod Type:: Theme

Difficulty:: Easy

Mod Status:: Stable

Apply In:: CWM Recovery

Requires Root:: Yes

Source::
Flash these in Recovery only. If you decide to try installing them a different way, do not post in this thread when you have problems.

Most of you have seen the how-to thread, but I know a lot of you just want a flashable version.

I decided the best thing to do was create a thread where we could share our Mms.apk creations. For now, I'm only posting a few that I created, but I will gladly add anyone else's, that would like to share with the community.

If you would like me to include your custom style Mms, send me, or post, a link, image, and let me know what ROM you used the Mms.apk from.

Thanks to everyone that has provided information for and in the how-to thread. I take no credit for images, or the original apk's. All I've done is modify a bunch of xml's, and add in the bubbles. I like the way they turned out, and wanted to share.

LatinIME with return Key

Many have asked for a return key mod, but I did not want to lose the smiley key in my Mmsapk's. Gunthermic pointed me to a keyboard mod that adds the return key to the smiley box instead. For those that are asking for a return key, this keyboard has the mod that puts it in the smiley box. This is the only way I will support it at this time.

Source for mod http://forum.xda-dev...hlight=latinime

This keyboard is straight from the latest cm9 nightly, and should work with all roms.

Installation Directions
1. Flash in recovery, then reboot.

To use
1. When typing a text, press and hold on the smiley key until the box comes up.
2. Once its there, let go
3. That will select the return key, going to the next line.

These may not work with every rom out there, so be sure to make a backup before flashing, just in case! I am not responsible if you brick your phone.

hey there. love the iphone style with no avatar. anyway to do the imessage blue instead of the green? And i know this has been a work in progress because ive been following it since day 1, but are you guys working on the spacing between texts? or adding timestamps? because when you have a thread with several long messages it just kinda gets very cluttered looking

This. I noticed this as well. I LOVE the way it looks but had to flash to your tw ics style text because i found the iphone version kind of cluttered. That being said it looks AMAZING! ive also been keeping up with your work and it is amazing you can be damn well sure ill keep a good eye on this thread

I'm going to release an iPhone style with the time stamp. I figured out the spacing issues too, so I will release an update for that soon.

Please keep these type of posts coming. I want to know what you guys want.

Thanks for the great feedback!

Do you mean in the iPhone version? I actually removed it to make it more authentic.

I can put it back in tho.
I personally preferred them i could of swore they had the time stamps but i could be totally wrong i havent used an iphone in a looonnng time haha. Another thing i noticed is that when receiving a picture message in the iphone theme instead of actually showing it in the message it appears as a small white dot in the bubble. I hope i dont sound naggy because i realllllly love this theme there are just a few things i noticed lol

Actually, they dont have a time stamp. I'll make a version with it tho.

Thanks for the heads up on the picture thing. I didn't notice that. I'll fix it.

the iphones messaging does have timestamp. its in the same places it is in messaging apps like handcent and go sms.
Interesting. Maybe its an option you can turn on in iOS, because every iPhone screenshot I looked at didn't have that.

I'm working on a timestamped version now, but its just going to be inside the bubble like it is stock. I honestly don't know how to make it go in the middle like the iPhone.

Also, I fixed the received image problem. Updating the link in the first post now.

ohh i remember now. If im correct if the time it takes for you to reply to the other person is like an hour or something then the time stamp will appear but if you are sending constant text back and fourth then it does not display the time stamp lol. Honestly im ok with no time stamp its just the fact i would not be able to tell if my message gets sent or not haha
