Thread: Changing SMS bubble color

  1. #1
    Default Changing SMS bubble color
    What is the EASIEST way to do this? I am new to modding my iPhone and i just want a really easy way to do it. Can anyone give me a guide to doing this or a program to use or something? thanks..

    Use the customize app found on installer. Make sure you also get the custom images package as well.

    Steps to doing this..
    • Go HERE and download the right version for you
    • Plug in your iPhone[IF NOT ALREADY]
    • Run the file
    • Go on your iPhone
    • Go to installer
    • You might have to download the community sources 2.5 things.
    • Find customize, install it.
    • Once installed, go back to installer on your phone
    • Download the designer image set..

    Now when you go into customize, the SMS bubbles will be there.. along with a few other neat things

    thanks so much dude... but one last question. when i'm done and get the SMS bubble colors i want, is there anyway to get installer off of my phone?

    Sure, just use ibrickr or ifuntastic, which ever you are using, and uninstall the installer app

    If you use a program like SummerBoard,
    you can hide the 4th row and have all your other apps (Installer, Customize, etc.) hidden until you scroll down.

    hey, i'd like to do that too but it's not working. i've downloaded customize and the two designer packs. when i select which colours i want and press ok, they're still the same. i've tried shutting the phone off and still the same problem. any idea why mine's not working? thanks for your help!

    Hey ekologik, are you talking about on 1.1.3? If so, then customize is broken on 1.1.3

    You can SSH into your phone and go here:
    Applications/MobileSMS.app/
    In there, the Balloon_1.png and Balloon_2.png are the bubbles. 1 is what you send, 2 is incoming. Just take the SMSBalloons you want, rename them, and throw them in there.

    Here are some SMS balloons found here on the site

    You can get the modded customize, it works fine with 1.1.3

    http://www.touchrepo.com/repo.xml <-add that source and download their modded Customize. (i think 1.21 modded)

    I can confirm that this modded customize works on 1.1.3....

    Thanks for the tip

    [I succesfully changed my wi-fi bars.. so I am assuming the rest works.]

    the rss feed doesn't work for me for some reason, but that link trent sent to the chat bubbles on this site is awesome if you use ssh to get into your phone.

    Balloon_1.png | Balloon_2.png
    ./Applications/MobileSMS.app/

    @ HUSKERPLAYA

    As root go to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ChatKit.framework and rename 'Balloon_1~iphone.png' to 'Balloon_1~iphone.bak' and rename 'Balloon_2~iphone.png' to 'Balloon_2~iphone.bak'. Then move the chat bubbles that you want to use into the same directory and name them 'Balloon_1~iphone.png' for incoming and 'Balloon_2~iphone.png' for outgoing.
