    I wasn't sure if anyone else was having this problem but I was having trouble with my custom colored SMS bubbles after the update to 4.1 and LimeRa1n JB. I found out what the problem was:

    The sms bubble pngs used to be named Balloon_1@2x.png and Balloon_2@2x.png. It seems that the update to 4.1 changed them to Balloon_1@2x~iphone.png and Balloon_2@2x~iphone.png. All you have to do to fix it is rename the png files in Winterboard and you're good to go.

    Just thought I would share this information for anyone who was having the same problems I was.

    Are the files in a WinterBoard theme? If yes:

    theTheme.theme/Folders/ChatKit.framework/Balloon_1@2x~iphone.png

    theTheme.theme/Folders/ChatKit.framework/Balloon_2@2x~iphone.png

    If you want the actual file location, it is here:

    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ChatKit.framework/

    Use the search at the top. Recently there was a SMS Bubbles thread with some retina quality bubbles linked or posted in the thread. Shouldn't be too hard to find.
