No no the update script i had automagically set permissions.
This was something far more stupid...
I forgot to flash the odex file with it :|
But something strange i've never seen before, when i loaded messaging after the flash it popped up with a very gingerbread looking box asking me to set a message limit for conversations hmmmmmm...
Anyways, here's hoping this works when the time comes to need it...
It's part of my android 4.4 still being usable plan due to a hatred of hangouts...either on my GN or if i get a nexus 5 (and assuming all leaks are true and messaging app is being ditched in favour of hangouts).
Annoyingly this flash didnt work on the other device i tried...i dont know if that's because i tried flashing it to a nexus 7 where it doesnt want to work or if i'm an idiot and i don't know what i'm doing. probably the latter...
i dunno, i guess i'm just an idiot.
Anyways, deodex'd the Mms.apk with http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...rsal-deodexer/
after a quick google...
and that happily installs on the nexus 7...so yay. Guess i'll use that going forward (i did the deodex at default OS version and left compression level at 5 because i dont know any better).
But at least it works so when the world ends and google try to force hangouts on me even more i have a backup...
