    Can't be done. U would need a tweak implemented to do this. That's why no themes have managed to change them.

    Can't be done? Yet tweaks can do it?
    There is no way that can be right, if a tweak can do something to change it so can I somewhere in the files :P
    Thats how a tweak would do it, either way I don't care how its done, so whats the tweak that does it? To JUST the sms app

    And by sms app I mean the default messages app ;P

    Maybe you should study on how iOS works a little. The SMS text color is coded inside iOS. So as you've been told already, it can't be done. I've yet to see a tweak that does this.

    No, that is not how tweaks work.

    You seen the posts that you linked to & the trouble they faced right? Also its exactly what King said. If its code you need to use code to change hence why we have Tweaks. If the method u suggested was that simple we wouldn't need tweaks essentially.

    And NO ONE to this day has modded the Font colours in the SMS app. The iOS is what it is...Themes are built around this...
