I was able to fix the mms dark text on dark background issue.
I 7zipped the mms.apk out of the H57 Andromedena Tek and 7zip it back into H57 SoC.

Looks pretty cool! I had to go through and test a few once I proved it would work to find one I liked.

Are we having fun or what? I'm close to digging into bdemartino's guide on porting
themes, to figure out this stuff for myself.
______________________

I dived into the porting guide and figured out the basics. I decompiled the latest SoC from tator and bdemartino's 2.1 version. I picked the colored pngs I wanted out of the original and replaced the monochrome ones.

I found a better colored mms.apk from the crysis pack but didn't care much for the mms icon, to dark, and 7zipped a different one back into the res folder of the mms.apk.

Everything is about where I want it accept for the gps navigation icon is always there in the notification bar even if gps is turn off. I'm going to look at the png names again and see if i missed a blank gps png or something. Any ideas would be appreciated.
***I just 7zipped the 3 pngs from the original back into the drawable-hdpi-v4 folder. Not sure why this fixed it they are smaller tho.***

Thanks so much to the original creators, rel500 & Crysis21 and these guys who did the ports thefunkbot, phillup & BakedTator. A special thanks to bdemartino for the porting guide, his work on the orig SoC and all he does, and all the devs who make this possible. I think thats enough a$$ ki$$ing for now.

thanks for the tip on the dark txt on mms! switched it out with the one from :5711_Heinz_57_AndromedenaTek_signed_zip and poof got some decent txt outta the deal :)

    Is CWM 3 red ? Sorry about the dumb question. The glossary doesn't mention version numbers with color of cwm. Maybe they're independent of each other, I don't know.

    You can use any of our working versions of CWM to flash this.

    Yup, what Akellar said.


    FYI - all of our CWM recoveries have ended up with red text, there have been 3 versions total (2.5, 2.5.x, now 3.0) any of which work with edify scripts. JT and other individuals have had to take the one released by koush and hack in edits to work with our phones, because the official versions are "broken" in that aspect - so only the ones posted here will work.


    What does not work is trying to use CWM 3.0 to flash some of our theme/rom .zips (the ones that didn't already have edify scripts in them) that's where the incompatibility comes into play.

    The messaging, SMS app, has dark text.The clock on the status bar on top is missing also. When I enable and disable it in TSM parts they shift over a little but the clock remains invisible.

    Time go visit that donate button now.
