    Exactly as title says, is it possible? I've tried everything such as SHSH, googling etc with absolutely no luck. Thanks guys!

    I'm not sure why you refer to Background.png, isn't it Default@2x.png you're referring to (stored in /Applications/BiteSMS.app) ?

    Yes, but replacing that does not work. It only changes the loader when opening the app for only a couple of seconds. Then BiteSms goes back to normal.

    I had typed Background.png because thats the most common thing I suppose.. specially regarding the default iPhone sms app.

    If you use WinterBoard I suggest you do what sidewinder suggests

    Not sure this works on 5.0 but worth a shot

    ok, I recall i saw a very strange explanation on the BiteSMS support forums and apparantly "when the app is loading the images of background sms and springboard they intercept that request and took the image you want in path you want in the memory… actually the background image is builtin in the app.. adding winterboard support means bring out of the app that image in an image file so winterboard and the app you like can change that image"

    So I guess it's about hacking the binary then :)

    Ohh wow. I finally got it to work using Winterboard. Thankyou so much guys!!
    I think it didn't work before because I had probably used a larger image. I'll just fiddle around with it now, and hopefully I can get it the way I want it!

    :D

    You definitely can do it. I have it set on mine right now, but you have to be willing to use Winterboard and create a new theme.

    If you create a folder and name it "SMSBackground.theme," then inside place a png that's titled "SMSBackground.png" just SSH that folder into the var/stash/Themes.xxxx folder and then activate the theme in Winterboard to make it work.

    The png should be 480 x 375 to work properly, but only part of that png will be visible. For example:

    This is the picture I'm using:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1101364/SMSBackground.png


    and this is what it looks like in Bite:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1101364/bitesmsbackground.PNG


    also make sure that you use png and NOT "PNG" as the file extension.

    Additionally, changing the dimensions of the png's will not work.

    EDIT: Folder name changed for clarity

    I have one more question to avoid making another topic since its similar - where are the bubble images (chat bubbles) located? Or what are they named cause its lost somewhere in my themes?

    Then you did not do it correctly and you need to give more information on what you attempted before anyone can offer any additional help.
