How can I just change the chat balloons colors without also changing the background graphic? In Cydia I see plenty of SMS "themes" where it changes the colors and background. All I want to do is pick the color of the balloons, like how we could do in Customize (which no longer works in 2.2). I know I could do in manually using SSH, but I don't have a pack of SMS balloons to switch out, does anyone have that?

On modmyi there are a bunch of different colours you can get.
Also all you have to do is go into the theme folder of the sms you downloaded and delete the background pic and just use the bubbles.

how can i do this?



well is pretty simple to do! if you have downloaded a sms theme but you only want the bubbles all you have to is go to finder and go to (var/stash/themes)
inside there you will find the folders of all the theme you have downloaded. so you choose the folder with the name of the sms theme and delete anything you don't want... from that folder after you are done deleting what you don't want from that folder just respring the springboard and you all set.... :laugh2:


if you need anymore help with it you can send me an email to

I don't know for sure, but I bet anything that if you SSH into your phone and go to the biteSMS.app folder, you will find the .png files for the chat balloons that you can replace. Bitesms.com also has a great forum if you need specific help.

I'm sure there are many way to do it...

For me, I would copy the bubble.png off from iPhone using iPhonebrowser, and modify the bubble.png color to whatever color I want in photoshop and replace to the new bubble.png...

I want to change the text bubbles to pink

But I'm reading through all these threads and feel totally lost.

I don't know how to jailbreak my phone. I've gone to numerous sites and the links either don't work or it gets confusing.

Then I don't understand how to find and copy the "bubble.png" from the iPhone with the iPhone browser, is that from using safari?

I keep seeing and hearing about cytia or ...

anyway, can someone help me through this please?
