    You just change the two png's. Balloon_1.png is for sent messages and Ballon_2.png for received messages. Just search the net for ones you like. ;-)

    I understand how to change it manually.. but how can it be done via winterboard? Is there a way yet? cause the old theme folder doesnt work... tried renaming the theme folder from mobilesms to chatkit but it didnt work...

    Ah, ok. You have to go to the theme folder/Bundles/com.apple.MobileSMS, copy the two Balloon-files und insert them to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ChatKit.framework.

    You have to do it manually. I guess Saurik has to update winterboard so that it can handle it again.

    yeah to apply the bubbles with winterboard:
    make a folder inside of ur theme and name it "Folders"
    inside of that make a folder and name it "ChatKit.framework"
    and place ur bubbles there exactly how u had them named before.

    then just respring
