    Hey guys, so I took a shower with my Pre in the sink drawer, and when I took it out (it was humid) the items in my messages list (threads, individual texts) now appear to have been shaded grey. Also my phone app is now now totally black and white (almost like its themed) except with the same green call symbol.

    I tried pulling the battery, to no avail, and I have no theme installed. Should I doctor this thing? Btw I can post screenshots when I get home. Also, just to restate this, no other UI element has been altered.

    this is apparently what happens when you have the Animated Backgrounds patch installed without a .gif in your wallpaper directory oops

    have you tried drying it out?

    Some people bury it in uncooked rice for a few days (you can also put the rice inside a small mesh bag with holes and then seal it and the pre in a bag)

    or

    perhaps use those small bags that are packed with electronics sometimes in order to take out humidity (i think they are called silica gel dessicant and you may be able to buy them on Amazon).

    Don't power on the pre until you have dried it out.

    If that doesn't work you may need to swap the phone.

    there is a little strip under the battery that will change if it gets wet. Look to see if that shows moisture damage. Then take out the battery, and leave the back off to let it sit in a bag of rice for about two days...

    also, if you can take a few screen captures, that would be interesting to see...

    To go slightly offtopic, if you want a new look without borking your phone, try looking at it with those 3-D glasses they give you for 3-D movies in theaters. At least for my Pre-, it looks very cool.

    Thanks for the advice guys. But I think its more of a coincidental software issue. The display isn't permanently discolored. Just in those two apps. Have you heard of this happening before?

    That's very similar to looking at my Pre with my polarized sunglasses while I'm drivng. I just went and grabbed a pair of those 3D glasses and checked Those polarized glasses also make vehicle window glass have a checkered look to it. (this hijack session is now officially complete)

    What should the strip look like if it has been damaged? Mine is mostly white with small red horizontal stripes.

    Are you sure you don't have any themes installed?
  11.    #11  
    Definitely. The only thing that's been changed aesthetically is the launcher. I have the black launcher PATCH installed. I have for a couple months with no issue. I have had themes installed before, but not for over a month. I have no idea whats going on. It makes the phone feel "dirty".

    it looks like you have the QuickInstall tweak that turns the dialer to black from that ugly green . That's what I use and that's what my dialer looks like.

    if the strip gets wet,then those red stripes or + signs will bleed and the whole area will be red or pink instead of white & red.

    Found out what was wrong. Had the animated backgrounds patch installed without an animated background. I thought it applied to the homescreen image, not the application background. oops
