    I've found that it is SO much easier to copy the original com.palm.app.messaging folder to the USB drive of the Pre (/media/internal) and then make the changes that I want within the application, whether they are to the CSS files or any of the images and then copying it all back into the same place. It saves a ton of time and you can also visually see what you have changed all at once. Another bonus too is that you never have to upload anything anywhere. Also, instead of renaming everything as a backup, I just keep a copy of the whole original folder on my PC. Let me know if you want to do this and I'll make a short tutorial. It's much easier. Also, I'd like to lay out there that Putty freakin' blows for rooting in. I much prefer to open a Command Prompt and type in 'novacom -t open tty://' and get right to it!!!

    Hey all, look what I managed to do!




    Replaced the color string with background: url(..images/background.png) and uploaded my own image.

    Then I edited the default chat balloon backgrounds with layered transparency.
    Let me know if you want the chat balloons!

    would be nice if you made it more and more transp at the edge so it isnt a hard transition and would be cool if you could set the little dot to light up if the user is online

    Please do. I seem to have the biggest hang up on getting the color changed file back to the Pre. So frustrating to me. As I was able to get my avatar in the sms area.

    Thanks,

    The little dot DOES light up when they are online.

    If you mean more transparent on the bottom, I kinda like that. It's a virtual depth kind of thing that makes it look more solid. If you mean transparent more on the edge of the chat balloon yeah I was thinking that :P

    This will get the avatars (both yours and theirs) in the lower right hand corner. If anyone can get it into the middle of the balloon please share how. For anyone who may have done this before the update, I've placed a ">" on the steps you'll need to do. For everyone else follow the tut like normal. Also, I'd suggest the gradient in the chat balloons all fading to one side. Looks much better that way ;-)
    Attachment 21700

    You will need to have your Pre rooted. Also, don't forget to back up everything you touch.

    First step is to type:
    Code:
    cd /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.messaging/stylesheets
    then:

    Code:
    sudo vi messaging.css
    >Starting at line 139 you will see this:
    Code:
    .chatRow img.avatar-location {
    	margin-top: -18px;
    }
    
    .chatRow img.avatar-overlay {
    	margin-top: -21px;
    }
    
    .chatRow .avatar-container {
    	vertical-align: middle;
    	display: inline-block;
    }
    >Change the margins in location and overlay so that they look like this:

    Code:
    .chatRow img.avatar-location {                                                             
            margin-top: -39px;
    }                                                                                                  
                           
    .chatRow img.avatar-overlay {                                                                       
            margin-top: -42.5px;
    }
    >Now comment out the container:
    Code:
    /*.chatRow .avatar-container {  
            vertical-align: middle;   
            display: inline-block;                                       
    }*/
    >Next, scroll down to line 662. You'll see something like this:

    Code:
    .my-chat .chat-balloon-wrapper, 
    .their-chat .chat-balloon-wrapper {
      padding: 1px 0;
      font-size: 18px;
      word-wrap: break-word !important;
    }
    >Add
    Code:
    padding-right: 40px;
    Code:
    .my-chat .chat-balloon-wrapper,            
    .their-chat .chat-balloon-wrapper {                                                                 
      padding: 1px 0;                                                    
      font-size: 18px;                                                                            
      word-wrap: break-word !important;                                             
    padding-right: 40px;                                                                                   
    }
    >Comment out line 668:

    Code:
    /*.their-chat .chat-balloon-wrapper {                           
            padding-right: 8px ;}*/
    On line 676 you will see this:
    Code:
    /* Disabling MY avatar because we are not doing this for 1.0  2008-11-05*/
    .my-chat .avatar-location,
    .my-chat .avatar-overlay,
    .my-chat .avatar-container {
    	display: none;
        width: 40px;
        height: 40px;
    }
    Comment out
    Code:
     /*.my-chat .avatar-overlay,*/
    /*.my-chat .avatar-container*/
    /*display: none;*/
    Now save: SHIFT zz or ESC :qw

    Type:

    Code:
    cd /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.messaging/app/controllers
    Code:
    sudo vi chatview-assistant.jsjsjs
    Scroll down to line 1286 and remove the /'s. Should look like this:

    Code:
     msg.avatar = this.myAvatar || 'images/my-avatar.png';
    Save: SHIFT zz or ESC :qw

    Now you need to upload an avatar and find the image location

    In terminal type:

    Code:
    cd /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.messaging/images/
    Code:
    sudo wget (url)
    Code:
    sudo mv (filename of the avatar you just downloaded) my-avatar.png
    Now type:

    Code:
    sudo luna-send -n 1 palm://com.palm.applicationManager/rescan {}
    You may need to do a full restart of the phone if after doing the above command does not add the avatar.

    Help!!!! I can get all the way to this step then I hit a road block, can anyone help or instruct me exactly what I need to do:

    Code:
    sudo mv (filename of the avatar you just downloaded) my-avatar.pngNow type:


    Code:
    sudo luna-send -n 1 palm://com.palm.applicationManager/rescan {}

    You need to take the file name of the avatar and plug it into the ( ) area and then type the command.

    so if it's: wget http://filebin.com/upload/avatar1.png ..
    you would type

    sudo mv avatar1.png my-avatar.png

    And then

    sudo luna-send -n 1 palm://com.palm.applicationManager/rescan {}
