Dark scheme with Jelly Bean

Is there a way how to get back dark scheme (for dialer or messages) after Jelly Bean update? I have Skyfall version and dark gray / brown scheme was one of the things that I loved on my Xperia T. Current white/blue (with blue numbers on blue background - I mean - seriously?) is just ugly.

Re: Dark scheme with Jelly Bean

you will need to use another phone and messaging apps and/or check the XDA forum and see if they have mods

I hate it too. Every app has another theme!!! Settings black, phonebook white, walkman black!

It's as step backward!

I agree. The white scheme is a little hard on the eyes especially at night. Hopefully they change this and go back to nice darker theme.

Re: Dark scheme with Jelly Bean

I recently purchased the Sony Xpreia and loved the text message dark theme.  It's the one area of the phone that I thought looked smart.   A week after having the phone it asked me to download the new software which changed the background to white.  The feature now looks basic and a step backwards.  Is there a way that you can down load the previous software?
