this.

You can't actually "shut off" the stock messaging app, because all other messaging apps use the stock messaging app to pull messages through. Which means, even rooted, you can't actually uninstall the stock messaging app and still get messages

Before installing 2.1 I was able to use Chomp SMS without the HTC message app responding to messages. Somehow I was able to disable the stock app. Now I'm still using Chomp but the stock app also activates whenever I get a message. I can't figure out how to fix this issue either, but prior to 2.1 it could be made transparent.

you've still got to go into the messaging app and change the notification settings.

The phone will always use the stock messaging app to pull texts through, it's just a matter of making sure it doesn't notify you that a text has come through, and making sure that the third-party app of your choice does notify you of a new text

Using Chomp on 2.1 unrooted, I only get the Chomp notifications. I did so by simply following the steps listed by stranger in post #2.

The only reason I get two notifications now is because I'm using SMS Popup to set different notifications for specific contacts. My girlfriend or best friends have their own, so I know I should get there a bit faster if I hear it, lol. If that's the case, my phone usually pulls in the Chomp notification first, then a few seconds later gives me the user-defined notification via SMS Popup.

Still haven't figured out how to setup different notifications without doing it this way, so if anybody can answer I'd appreciate it (not trying to thread jack).

The Stock messaging app, cannot be disabled on a stock Hero, you can disable it's notification features but that is it.
