Question Change SMS/Text message colour

Hi!

Are there any mods or Xposed modules available that can configure the native SMS/Text message app? Sony in their wisdom, make any numbers that appear in the received SMS/text message as blue and these are extremely difficult to read if the theme that you are using shows the received text message with a blue background!

I am rooted (on NUTs .681) but not deodexed and don't really want to deodex the rom...

Any help will be appreciated!

Regards,

Alan

To make that happen is recommended to have a deodexed Rom, do you know that?

Some Experienced Themer should look deep into it just to change that color. I don't know any app that could change it, at the moment..
