    When I was running 6.1.2 I was able to able to theme an image into my text msg background. Now, running 7.0.4 I've tried following the same steps using ifle and nothing?
    Anyone have any ideas? Board of the plain white background while texting..

    Thanks

    Messages Customiser allows you to change the background image, among other things.

    That's another thing, I see the option for a custom background, but I don't see where to choose said background.

    OK,
    so how do you replace a custom background with a background of your own choice? In other words, from camera roll?

    Installed Message Customiser, located images using ifile and replaced with my desired image.
    Make sure you use an image size of 744x1392.. You also need 2 of the same image, one portrait and one landscape. I figured out Message Customiser uses this file size "only" as it's background on the 5,5c and 5s. All other iPhone's use a smaller resolution image as default within the app...

    Hope that helps....

    ----------

    Oh, don't forget to rename your image exactly the same as the default image file. You'll also have to delete the original image file before renaming, won't let you have 2 of the same image files at the same time and in the same location.

    Correction, image res doesn't seem to matter. Just file name[​IMG]

    Just a tip that could come in handy for someone down the road: don't delete the original file, rename it first then rename/import the desired image file.
