    I recently rooted and installed a no bloat version.

    But can someone check their stock email (not gmail) app for me? I could've sworn it was black text on white background and had an option to not confirm on delete (when using the checkboxes...not when viewing a single email).

    I'm wondering if I have the wrong version since it's white text in black and it asks me to confirm every time I delete a mail.

    Or maybe I'm just remembering wrong.

    Weird...is it a Verizon thing? (checked with another Verizon owner and theirs is white background).

    I'd much rather have the white background, but I can live with the black background, I suppose.

    I'll have to see if I can find the VZW apk to install. I don't suppose one of you are rooted that could grab it for me out of the system\apps folder?

    Another strange difference with the VZW version and other versions.

    Here's a zip of the apk and odex. Not flashable so you'll have to extract it and manually install.

    You can toggle the text and background color from white/gray/black.

    Thanks. I did that and my it's still a black background. It must be something else, but I'll be darned if I know what it is.

    Apparently a Verizon thing....someone at XDA noticed the same thing (see post 185 on this page): [ROOT] PROPER Remake of Full Rooted Stock Image (aka Root66) + Easy CWM Install - Page 19 - xda-developers

    Verizon may have modified it to improve battery life. AMOLED displays use less power when displaying a lot of black.

    Well, in that case, Verizon's would be worse (since it has a white background). I'm just more curious what causes it to be white, since it's not the .apk, so they must have something else baked in to modify the app.

    If you have power saving on it will give you a black background with white text on a single email view. The Main Inbox folder however is still white background with black text. So this does not help you I know, but it might give you some ideas on where to look.
