    I was looking through the directories in my replacement DNA to see which ones I didn't remember being there prior to copying the files from my old DNA; try hooking your DNA up to your PC and viewing it as a USB hard drive. In the list of folders -- pictures, downloads, DCIM, etc., make sure there is a folder labeled "Gallery" and drop a photo in it for good measure (in mine, there's actually a sub folder labeled "backgrounds" ...this sub folder is where my background photo is actually located). Not sure this is the fix you were looking for, but hopefully it will help.

    Ok so we have 2 Droid DNAs, my girlfriends has both options (HTC background and gallery) when we got my DNA no gallery option. So I rooted to get rid of some things, still no gallery. But then I added a custom ROM, did a back up of stock first. Didn't really like the ROM, took too much away. So I restored my back up. And guess what's there now, yup gallery in the sms background option! The only thing I can think of is the ROM putting something back, orrrr maybe when I did a data wipe and factory reset and wiped dalvik, not sure. For those who are not rooted I would try doing a hard reset from recovery mode. You will lose everything but probably gain the option to change your msg backgrounds back. It may seem like no big deal but it is. Hope this helps and works. If you don't know how to get in Recovery mode or hard reset, google it.

    this may not be of much help but I just unlocked rooted and installed a rooted (debloated by me) stock ROM and before all that I couldn't change my background in the messages settings no matter what I tried... now i can change it...and I must say this is a pretty cool way of personalizing my phone..

    **edit**


    so at first i was under the impression that you could change the backgrounds on individual conversations.. like have a different background for my wife's messages.. but alas you cannot.. I do like that i can download backgrounds and use them but i would also like to be able to set different backgrounds for different conversations.. oh well..

    This may have something to do with the launcher. With Nova I have Gallery and HTC as an option. Switched to Sense and Gallery option was gone. May be just a little weird glitch in my phone tho

    Figured it out - for real. Make sure there is a folder at the root of the sdcard called ".data". My wife's One X+ wasn't showing the gallery option, but mine was. Noticed that on my phone I had the .data folder and that it contained some HTC-specific folders. One of them had the background that I was currently using for the SMS background. Created the .data folder on my wife's One X+ and the gallery option became available. Note: You'll have to install a filemanager like ES Explorer or hook the phone up to a PC via USB to create the folder. Enjoy!

    You might have better luck in the HTC one s forums. This is in the DNA forum.
