Ok, here is it.. just pushed last night and already inverted! The major part of this was done by B-boy, I just added the finishing touches and did a few smali edits..

Instructions for ROOTED users.....

uninstall updates for gmail
download the app
navigate to app
select and install.....enjoy

if this doesn't work, then you will need to use RE, rename gmail.apk in /system/app to gmail.apk.old and then REBOOT, if you do not reboot it won't work!!

Now return to the app, select it, and install... enjoy

Non-Rooted users, you can give this a try and see if it will work...

uninstall updates for gmail
download app
navigate to app
select and install
You will know right away if it works.....

Always make a backup and enjoy Gmail 2.3.5.... Blacked Out

Rooted users... if you have issues installing, let me know and I will post some update.zips... but this should work for ALL devices...

Unread/read text is smali.. the inner messages that we inverted is in the raw files..... look for an update with a slightly lighter "read" background....

If I wanted to change the read/unread could you point me to the correct file and line? Also what is the smali color code for the grey that you use? Also the html color code for the grey. I could probably find out where in the files they are located if I knew the color code. I have a black/blue theme and am wanting to redo my Gmail to match it. I have almost completed theming the entire gmail. I am just missing the smali edits. Any help would be appreciated and all credit would be given.
