    Default How to revert to pure android SMS template?

    TOUCHWIZ SMS TEMPLATE RANT:
    I love the pure Android ICS/JB SMS template with contact picture quotations on my former Gnex and really dislike the cartoonish bubbles in the Touchwiz version of Note II.

    This is a generic image of the ICS stock SMS template: How do I get this template back? Without rooting or causing other issues.


    This is the bubbles without the contact pics, which is the current Touchwiz standard that I dislike (also from the web):

    Thanks! I saw that, but it seems to have issues:

    WARNING: MMS doesn't work currently, sorry! I don't really have time to fix it at the moment
    Notifications don't work
    Great! But notifications need sorting

    Just open it and it will ask you what app you want to use, then select ALWAYS.... then on the stock messenger shut off notifications

    GO SMS is probably the best one...or at least has the most themes. This is the part where I'd usually say that I'm currently using Go SMS because screw TW. But honestly they gave us all sorts of themes and options. This is the first time I've ever been happy with an Android UI that wasn't stock/vanilla. So maybe check out the built in theming options as well and then if that doesn't cut it try GoSMS or Handcent.
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
    We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things,
    because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

    TW doesn't give you options on SMS themes, it's just different colors of balloons.

    TW also doesn't have the Pop Up window option like the stock JB MMS app. That's what I'm after. I've used Handcent and GO SMS but I really like the stock JB MMS app (with pop up window). I've found them, but not one of them so far can handle MMS without crashing. Any solutions other than Handcent or GO SMS?

    Is there a way I can grab the stock JB SMS and put it on my note 2? I'm rooted now. Seems like it should be easy to just install that apk or something.

    Here's a link to the one that works....http://concentriclivers.com/android/...ng-4.0.3-8.apk. If you open it up in the TW browser it should start downloading it for you.

    I'm using the one above because I like the stock messaging app.

    Just make sure you disable the TW messaging app.

    Yes, this is what I did with my phone.

    Get root.
    Open this apk and install it.
    Open up root explorer and rename the secsms.apk or whatever it is to secsms.bak to disable it.
    Enjoy.

    I would think you would want to disable the old sms program. Did the file just overwrite the old one for you?

    At any rate you should root anyways because it's easy and fun. Chicks did guys who rooted. You may be able to help ROOT them in return (if you catch my drift).
