These are the ultimate in avatar patches for the Messaging app!
There are 2 patches attached to this post. The normal, right-aligned user avatar patch and the more-recent left-aligned user avatar patch.
What makes these patches special, are that it's dynamic!
Install a patch, and in the main Messaging screen (the one that lists conversations and buddy list), in the app menu, there'll be a new option: "Set Avatar"
Tapping the "Set Avatar" option will open up a file-picker. It'll show all available images, in virtually all formats: "bmp", "jpg", "jpeg", "png", and yes, even "gif".
Choose your image and voila, you've set your avatar. Easy as pie.
Oh, and once you've selected your avatar, it's copied to the system files in /var/, meaning you don't need to keep the image in user storage
Note: This patch requires my FileMgr service.
