Arrow [THEMED APK] KitKat 4.4 / CM 11 Alcolawl's Themed Holo MMS (Cyan,Grey,Black)

Dark Holo Themed MMS for KitKat 4.4 / CM 11
(Cyan & Black OR Grey & Black Themed)

Sorry about the screenshots, The CM team still hasn't figured out the graphical bugs.

Disclaimer:
I can, in no way, take any credit for this application, I can only take credit for the theme editing. Please Note: I will NOT be able to add features (beyond simply editing an XML) file; only fix any theme errors. I'm running CyanogenMod 11 and have not tested this on any other ROM. Please feel free to report if this apk WORKS on any other ROMs or phones for community knowledge and reference. I cannot guarantee that this apk will work on any other devices besides the Galaxy Nexus, try at your own risk. I'm also not responsible for any damage or explosions caused by you installing this apk. [/FONT]

Description
Not all of us have taken the transition to Hangouts as our SMS app easily. This APK is a modified version of Cyanogenmod's MMS application (which is modified from Google's Holo MMS). This is meant to bring familiar look and lightweight feel that we've all come to know and love from Jellybean. To better match the grey Kitkat theme, I've also included a grey version as well as the popular Cyan and Black theme. Playing off of styling cues from Hangouts, this is the perfect blend of Hangouts and Holo to make it really feel like it belongs in KitKat.

Features:
  • Entirely Themed App and Widget
  • Two themes Grey/Black or Cyan/Black, both with their respective icons.
  • All CM11 MMS app features (as of January 5, 2014)
  • Quick Reply
  • Mark Read, Reply, and Call Buttons on Notification
  • Max MMS Size of 1024kb (1 MB)
  • Split SMS (160 Characters per)
  • Group MMS
  • Emoji Support

Confirmed Compatible Devices:
NOT ART COMPATIBLE
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Sprint SCH-i515 - Toroplus)
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Verizon SPH-L700 - Toro)

Changelog:

Code:
v1.5 - January 5th, 2014 - Initial Release (For KitkKat)
v1.51 - January 10th, 2014
- Fixed Attachment view to match the theme
- Fixed Updater-Script spelling derp
- Tidied up Icons on the Attachment Menu
- Changed Orientation of Sent Message Speech Bubbles so they appear to be coming from your avatar.
- Changed MMS / Blank Contact Avatar to match the theme. 
- Changed colors for Attachment Menu Icons on Ultra High DPI devices (XXHDPI).
Installation:
Download the flashable .zip below, flash in recovery, reboot and enjoy!

Click here for this theme for Jellybean / CM10!


Unfortunately, I'm discontinuing development for this Theme. I've upgraded to a Nexus 5 and really dig - Evolve SMS - Created by a Fellow XDA member. I have not yet, rooted and flashed CM to my Nexus 5, nor do I plan to until the summer (school gets in the way). Because of this, I don't have a constantly fresh and updated version of the Stock Android MMS app and cannot continue development (and there's also a possibility that the app won't work on the N5). I will continue creating themes for MMS apps in the future, perhaps create an Evolve SMS theme of my own. I will also continue to monitor this thread and make sure the links stay alive, as well as help those to the best of my ability that require it.

Where do I click to download? That page is pretty awful. I clicked the free download button and got a constant check your phone for virus pop-up.

Judging by how previous versions of this apk were handled just fine by almost any Samsung device i'd say it'd work just fine. Be sure to report back so we can share your findings. I sure others have asked themselves the same question!

Scroll all the way to the bottom and click "Free Download", this will take you to the final page where you wait about 10 seconds and then you can download the file.

Dirty Flashed on 1/18 vanir nightly toro and got messenger force close. Was in ART though not sure if that made a difference or not. About to crash for the day and I'll try again tonight on a clean install into davlik and see if that changes anything.

Any luck? I wonder if it has something to do with the directory that it installs in. I'm not sure if it exists in other ROMs, the MMS apk that I edited was out of Cyanogenmod and so I have this flash right back into it's rightful directory. Although, it'd make more sense that if the directory doesn't exist that it'd just create it.. So you may be right about ART.

Weird. I just switched to ART today using CM11. The stock MMS app works just fine. I'll try flashing this in a little bit, if it FCs then I'll rip the APK from my current nightly and theme that one, considering it works for ART and see if it works that way. Supposed to get a pretty good snow storm here in the North East so assuming classes are cancelled I'll have some free time to fool around with it on Wednesday.
