Those of you who have been around the jailbreak community for a while should be extremely familiar with biteSMS. The Messages app replacement has been around since the early days of iPhone hacking.

The app was updated today, bringing it to version 6.3.10 (or beta 10). The update features some new theming options, as well as several improvements and bug fixes. Full change log after the break…

From the biteSMS forums:

  • Added theme parameter for the character counter.
  • Added theme parameters for links in message bubbles.
  • Added theme parameters for QR square corners and text area background color.
  • Once theme applied, clear caches such that a respiring is no longer required.
  • Fixed iPad crash issues.
  • Fixed a crash associated with unlock the phone during an incoming message event.

If you’re interested in learning more about the new theme parameters, biteSMS explains everything here. You can develop your own themes and send them in, or publish them as free or paid themes in Cydia.
