XML values for size and resolution were increased, nothing else modified from the original MMS.apk.

CM11s ROM.


Update: Looks like KK has a few changes in flashable zips... I'll update shortly after some more testing. Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Update 2: Fixed the flashable zip, learning process with KK for me, been a while since i made a flashable zip. New zip will update correctly, tested on my own device. Enjoy!

Thanks to @richeazy for feedback!

Update 3: Don't flash this on 30O, it doesnt work. Will try to update soon, as the code in M8 doesn't incorporate the fix yet I guess.

Update 4: added revert to flash so you can flash OTA, if you flashed this fix. Confirmed working by multiple people.

You can just replace the apk inside the priv-app folder w/ a file manager and change the permissions to rw-r-r and reboot to get it working. Just tested it and the quality is fixed!

as much as I also wanted to continue to use the included AOSP messaging app a viable solution isn't available unless someone were to build a modified apk for us. there us information on xda on what XML lines are modified.

since it has become rather difficult to come by this I've gone ahead and installed Go SMS Pro or Handcent which has a toggle within the setting which allow for MMS size change

I implemented the aforementioned xml patch on a 44S deodexed Mms.apk. See if this works for you guys.
(Thanks to the OP for the install script/zip =)

So if I have At&T, I am already at this setting, is how I understand your idea.

Do I understand you correctly?

Any chance you could implement this on the newer version since they just dropped 05Q? Obviously not now since its barely rolling out. Whenever you get a chance of course

so I installed the zip above on my one running 44s and now I can't update to 05q. does anyone have the stock files that where changed by it?

thank you ahead of time

stock 44s mms files can be found below. hope this helps someone else. DO NOT TRY TO FLASH! THESE ARE FIR THOSE WHO WISH TO MANUALLY REPLACE THE MODDED FILES OR FOR SOMEONE TO USE TO MAKE A FLASHABLE ZIP.
