Info 2 [Q] SMS AOSP App?

So... I just got the Nexus 5 a couple of days ago. I love the phone.

But... I really do not like Hangouts. I use WhatsApp, and sometimes SMS. But I do not like Hangouts for SMS. Is there a way to install the SMS app from the Nexus 4? Like a AOSP version? If so... where can I find the app?

Thanks.

I use 8sms. It looks like the AOSP SMS app but adds a couple nice features, like the option for a popup when you receive a SMS. I set it as default messaging app and it works perfectly.

I just tried the 8sms app. You will probably call me crazy, but I didn't like it for one reason. The icon. Ughh.

You can change the icon... It has the option. In settings, at the bottom

Thanks.
I built Mms.apk from aosp 4.4.2 today because I don't want to use Hangouts. I don't have carrier service so I'm not sure it will even work properly. If someone could test it that would be very cool. And maybe you'll get the app you're looking for.

Here's the MMS.apk from Purity Rom, it has more options like full timestamps and quick reply.

I think 8Sms is a better idea than using the messaging app compiled from source, because 8sms is the same thing, but constant bug fixes that are released through Google Play...which I find better.
