    Just updated the iOS7 theme in Cydia and the iMessage bubbles are now this terrible bright blue. They used to be a nicer, lighter blue.

    Wonder why the change? And if there's any way to revert back to the previous color? The app is still messed up compared to the actual iOS7 as letters are black not white (which I personally prefer).

    Suppose it would have been nice if there was a better detailed description of changes. Might not have updated if it was only the message bubble color.

    The update today seems to make the blue bubbles more legible.

    Also, for whatever reason, the iOS 7 theme for me just won't work with all options selected. If I select the iOS 7 folders in winterboard, my dock goes transparent...If I select iOS 7 springboard, my Auxo goes black...etc

    I really like the messages look. I think the colors are great.

    Which theme are you using? There are quite a few iOS 7 themes out there. Maybe try a something different or one of the iOS 7 messages themes.

    There is a one on a non default repo that seems to be pretty good. The repo is http://cydia.myrepospace.com/pw5a29ip4/ you might like that one.

    That theme has left my phone unbootable twice.

    Stay away.

    My text color is black, not white...

    I;m using iOS 7 Theme 3.7.1 by pw5a29

    That looks more like the iOS7 Beta which is not at all what I'm talking about.

    Newest update makes the bubbles look much nicer. I still don't see a transparent keyboard option though.

    You must not be using the same theme.

    Hank, can you post what you have check marked in Winterboard to get that translucent keyboard background? I have Wong's keyboard enabled but I can't get that translucent effect...

    I think the messaging theme being used is actually an IOS7 Bitesms theme from Cydia. I was able to get the keyboard running using Color Keyboard but no clue how to get the transaprent effect. Hopefully someone else can chime in.

    I sort of figured it out...in Color keyboard, select 'ios 7 Theme' by Philip Wong.
    On the bottom, in 'plugins', make sure NOTHING is selected.

    No popup key.
    don't customize background's
    Key Border Radius = N/A

    In order to get the transparent theme, put your mouse on the top half of the screen and scroll text underneath the keyboard. Note: If you're on the most recent message in the App, text will not be transparent until you scroll to older text messages.

    ----------

    What does your keyboard font look like?? I can't seem to customize it at all, the font looks like the default. I installed and am using Robotic Light (closest to iOS7 font) throughout iOS, but I can't seem to get the keyboard font edited...

    Somehow had the wrong version of Byta. Updates to 1.7 and reinstalled everything one by one and got it all to work. Thanks again..

    The keyboard is from ios 7, but you must have color keyboard.

    peter wong is the author. make sure to grab it from a default repository. stay away from his repo.

    You can use any pop up you like.
