Thread: Quick Fix for 3.0 SMS themes not applying

  1. #1
    Default Quick Fix for 3.0 SMS themes not applying
    In order to apply winterboard themes to areas such as SMS I have found a simple fix.

    In SSH or Finder, go to Stash/Themes/*Your Theme*/Bundles

    To fix an SMS theme, rename it from com.apple.mobilesms to com.apple.chatkit

    This may help in fixing other winterboard 3.0 problems, technically all you need is the bundle name and rename a few things to apply them correctly. If anyone finds the keyboard bundle, etc, let me know.

    what files do you have in your "com.apple.chatkit"??

    I tried doing this and it'll change the text bubble colors but won't change the background, which is really the best part for me....

    yeah I just noticed I can't get ones with backgrounds to work. Couldnt find a wallpaper.png or anything, but I'l keep looking

    the closet thing to a bg within the chatkit folder i can find is MessageEntryBG.png but changing my wall paper to that still doesnt change the bg.

  10. #9
    yeah same here. i extracted all the files from the chatkit and they cant be opened for some reason.

    change there file name from .....png to .jpg some can be viewed then some cant.

    i got the bg working on other parts of the sms screen the MessageEntryBG.png changes the bg of the text entry section and no the main bg, i did this by moving the bg file into the com.apple.chatkit folder.

    The Default-smsanswer.png is just a loading/splash screen when launching Messages. As far as I know the SMS backgroung hasn't been solved yet.
