Why you say use color emojis? I enjoy these, they're different and refreshing and fit the UI very well. Thank you for updating, will donate when I have time!

I'm actually working on packaging a proper monochrome emoji font that could be installed together with the color emoji patch to support black-and-white emojis.

I decided to retire this patch because it is so very incomplete and maintaining two separate emoji patches seemed a bit unreasonable to me (it's also more work...). As I said, I'm working on getting the color emoji patch to support more fitting emojis. That requires patching the DejaVu fonts though etc. etc., so it'll take some time :).

Until then, you can still install the patch through Patchmanager's web catalog. It's not marked as compatible with SFOS 4.x but it should still work.

Confirmed to work on
Would be nice if you could update PM Web Catalog.

updated; I didn't release a new version, so I hope PM still recognizes the change...

Thanks! I'll update it next weekend.

Meanwhile @ all users: you can enable Patchmanager's developer mode to apply the patch.
