Question [Q] Black letters on black Background on SMS / Mail etc. Why?

Hi, Iīve got a problem with P.A.C.Rom on my Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-i9505).
The Rom runs really great. Iīve been using it for a long time on my One X, Xperia Z and now on my S4.

My problem is that the background for writing new messages or mails or in some apps like Tasker is black and the letters are black, too.
So you canīt really see what you are writing.

When I reset the Hybris settings and reboot the phone the background is white as it used to. But after some minutes it will switch back to black without doing anything.

Is that a known problem or am I missing something??

Thanks in advance...

Did you turn on PAC in black? This could be the culprit. Or maybe a theme?

No, switched PAC in black on an off. Wiped data in App Settings from every App that could cause it.
Wiped cache an dalvik several times and set the paranoid settings to stock.
Donīt know what I can do more...

I'd suggest a full wipe then, if you didn't already do it. Also, if the problem persists, try reverting to an older nightly/version.

Default still no change...

Tried Carbon Rom 4.4.1 yesterday. Works great, but went back to PAC today.
Did a Fullwipe and installed yesterdays build. All was fine untill I turned the Statusbar transparent with Hybrid Settings.
After a while my messages background tuned to black. Same again with "tasks" and Email.
Saved the settings before changing anything and restored them. But the stock settings donīt last a long time. Turns back to my changes I did itself...
