    ruqqq edited the native messaging app with an option for a black background. It's included in a lot of roms, but can't seem to find a standalone apk yet. I'll edit this post when i do.

    [Edit:] Hasn't been updated in a few months, but check this one out:

    How did you install it over the Messaging app that comes on BB 0.4? My only options are Uninstall and Open, since it is technically installed already.. And I can't uninstall the version that is already on there.

    just an fyi after following the above steps you'll need to reboot for the changes to take effect.

    i'd also recommend a nandroid backup just to be sure, that way if something is messed up you can just do a restore.
