    I think thats just a color code, not an image. And we haven't found where those are controlled yet...

    well..this is what i got so far...

    for the database file that contains all your saved SMS thus far...*not deleted chats*

    /var/root/Library/SMS/sms.db



    ...and i be that the actual *FILE called MobileSMS* is what contains that code...cuz i cant find it anywhere.. and i just looked thru about 80% of all the iphones files...


    is there an app that can open these executables and tinker with the insides?

    How are you getting that color code, through a screenshot app, because screenshots arent always accurate, but I could be wrong.

    hey guys just a throw in if you want to change the sms background you just make a new "default.png in mobile sms .app, make one in cs2, steal it from iphonewith Winscp then open in cs2 ....etc

    ahh, sorry guys thats the pre. png, before you get to where you type .... your actuall sms sorry hmm

    I don't think either of those last two suggestions work. I tried them and it did not change. I could have done something wrong but...I don't think that's it. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

  19. #18
    I tried that last one, it doesnt work. If you have found it then can you show us what it looks like?

    this has been discussed on multiple threads now.

    Make sure you have the latest Winterboard installed.

    In the folder of the theme you are using you need to have an image called SMSBackground.png

    and thats it
