A big thanks goes out to B666m for helping us find the files and pointing people in the right direction with some basic how-to stuff. So how do you do the mod? Firstly let me say this is all done at your own risk and if you are not clued up on any of the code, please be very careful... So basically there are 9 files that are involved. Please not that depending on what you are doing you may only be changing some of the files. It is also possible too have two completely different styles for you SMS and IM conversations windows. The files are called:
Before following the below steps, you will need to do the following if you want to view your avatar. 1 - Get an Image of yourself, resize it to 64x64 pixels. 2 - Rename it to avatar and save it as a png. 3 - Copy the image to the test folder that is mentioned below. 4 - Continue as below... These steps have been provided by B666m:
just unzip them anywhere in your MyDocs-folder when connected via mass storage mode to your pc. for example make a new folder called test and copy them over there. then unplug the usb-cable and open x-term on your phone. for the first command you need to have rootsh; installed. 1. sudo gainroot 2. cp MyDocs/test/* /usr/share/rtcom-messaging-ui/html/ (3. rm -r MyDocs/test) after the second command go to your conversations, open any one, close it and open it again for reloading the layout. (the third step is only for removing the test-folder with all files it contains)
(If you want to use one of the mods above, simply unzip the files of the “theme” you want into the test folder mentioned above and copy everything over.) As you can see the hack allows you to add Avatars to conversations and make the Avatars alternate from left to right.
Seeing as though this is all done in CSS/html and java files, I assume that this means almost anything is possible. Perhaps we will see people doing embedded maps and webpage previews when sent through SMS or IM.
So what are you waiting for, start downloading or simply create your own and don't forget to share you creative items with everyone over at talk.maemo.org

ok so you just get a picture of yourself, resize it to 64x64 pixels. rename it to avatar and save it as a png. move it into the test folder before giving the command to copy the contents to the right place. sorted easy peasy
