    Hey guys just wondering if it is even possible to have your text message scroll across the bottom of the screen when it comes in? Like we know how it will show the little avatar and then some of the text, is there a way to have the text scroll? I think that would be a neat feature. Im willing to donate to get it done... Dont know much about patches or homebrew, my phone is stock. Just an idea, thanks.. Have a good new year guys and keep up the awesome work!

    Sounds interesting.. Probably requires patching of the Mojo framework to scroll the text, rather than just patching the messaging app (really depends if the notification area supports the marquee HTML tag). If the entire Mojo framework were to be patched for this, then it would just cause all notifications to scroll.

    That would be a very interesting patch indeed. I'm also interested in seeing what our devs could come up with.

    I feel like I've said that several times today while on duty. heh

    Actually, this is possible. I don't quite remember which one of the sample apps did this (maybe StyleMatters?) but in the SDK, there was an app which gave examples of notifications and one of them even had an entire image that "marquee'd" through the notification bar and then stopped, but if you tap and dragged it, you could see the entire image. It was basically a tiny image viewer in the notification bar!

    The notification system has a LOT of potential...

    Just up to the developers I guess...

    In other words, this patch is very possible, I believe.

    That has nothing to do with this thread, try to stay on topic. If you would like a patch for what you describe search the forum or create a new thread.
