    /Library/Theme/"name of your theme"/Folders/
    make a folder inside and name it "ChatKit.framework"
    and place ballon png's there

    Sure you do, it is in the root directory. Are you using WinScp or what?

    You have to go to the root directory, that's not it.
    Ok, if you looking at WinScp, on the right is your phone file system (2 screens showing, left and right), you will see a folder (upper right side task bar) that has an "/" on it (click there), that will bring you to the root directory or you can double click on folder on the main screen.
    Boy I think I made this harder than it is sorry for the directions. Hopefully you'll understand. Long day.

    Yup, there are 2 files in there that you change. Now you are seasoned SSH'r and forum searcher. nice job. lmao
    You learned that way grasshopper, rather than just pointing the way.

    What I do is, I leave the files there. I just rename them I add "bac" to it. like from icon.png to iconbac.png.
    That way it's always there if I want to change back or I screw up. But you can save them in a folder if you choose. I just find this easier for me.

    You can't change the sms background yet on 3.0 but most everything else you can.

    Nice job, glad it worked out for you. And you are correct because 3.0 changed some of the file system locations most SMS themes will not work.
