    Change background color email/mms?

    Anyone know of a way to change the theme or background color of the native mms and native gmail app? I was hoping to change to sort of a dark / black theme. Two reasons, one to save battery life, and also since i have a vertical band that shows up against light/white/grey background.



    Thanks!

    If you are rooted, there are some blacked out versions... But if you are stock, it isn't possible on the native apps...

    If you root and load a 4.0.3 ROM, you can install these...[Inverted]Totally Inverted Gapps (Gmail, Gtalk, Google+, Market, Music, MMS) - RootzWiki

    I loaded the gmail myself and it's nice.

    GoSMS Pro is a highly customizable/theme'able app. You can customize EVERY aspect of the user interface. I use it instead of the stock.

    Quick question about this inverted GApps thing. When I read the OPs on some ROM threads, the ROM dev often calls out that *their* version of GApps needs to be installed immediately after flashing the ROM. If I wanted to switch ROMs, would I flash *their* version, set the phone up entirely, THEN flash this version?

    Would I need to wipe any data on doing this?

    That's right...you'd need to install the ROM and normal gapps (if required) per the ROM instructions. Then after booting into the ROM, you're good to install the inverted gapps...no data wipe needed. You wouldn't want to install this instead of normal gapps, as its not a full set of gapps...and would probably cause some other issues.
