Prompt [IDE][3.6.30.14100] Virtuous Ten Studio - Advanced Reverse Engineering Solution



Quote:
Virtuous Ten Studio (VTS) is the ultimate solution for the modification of android applications.
This program allows you to manage entire Android projects within an easy to use and familiar environment.

The intended group of users covers anyone from a themer over ROM devs up to the smali gods known for their awesome mods of existing apks.
The modifcation of smali code is one of the biggest features in VTS. You can easily decompile, edit and recompile any apk or jar file.
However, the application is not limited to smali files. You can edit almost any file found inside an apk or jar.

Virtuous Ten Studio is also the official successor to the highly important M10Tools released 2011 by the Virtuous Team.
You can easily edit any m10 file from Sense apps in order to resize or change them.

Additionally VTS brings support for un- and repacking of boot images (boot.img), a job that previously required a cygwin installation with the dsixda kitchen.
Since VTS' own implementation is a native windows solution, which means you don't need dsixda or cygwin anymore.

VTS has been designed to run on Windows, has been in development for nearly two years and has gone through many stages of testing.


Today VTS is a highly respected, multiple purpose Android IDE (Integrated Develoment Environment) suited for all your reverse engineering tasks.

I've had the pleasure of beta testing and writing tuts for vts and I must say that it is the most useful, well put together program for Android that I've ever used.
Quote:
I got that excited that I almost pre jacked when I first used it.
It is simply truly fxxxxng amazing.
Thank you team and testers
Quote:
Diamondback and everyone involved in this project - thank you! I just started learning (this morning) and
I am already pushing out some alpha mods to the lockscreen thanks to your tool!!
It is a great tool, and I will be using it more as I learn more.
Thank you for the effort you put into this for free, it is amazing. Keep it up!

VTS has done amazing, meticulous work that has enriched, massively, the android community.
Thank you!

As someone that's been using your tools since they were first available, I give a HUGE thanks.
I have, like duce been innovative with m10 modding. There are probably endless options, through mostly trial and error.
The payoff on the end result is always worth it. I'll be more than happy when your next release is out.
Quote:
I've been using VTS for over 2 months now and it has become the only tool I use. There are tremedous advantages and I'm still finding more. The java source tools are invaluable when working with xmls and smalis. I can now switch between projects with 3 clicks. Great program for modding.
Quote:
This is probably by far the most useful thing I've used on windows lol
Quote:
Ohh this is going to be awesome. I'm giddy with excitement. Great job on the app as a whole but with the upcoming m10 editing?
You guys rocked any other editor out of the water. Keep it up
Quote:
Waw.. this project is being developed very fast.... many changes in the software since the last 2 months when I tried it...

Awesome!!!
Thanks alot for the hard work, and great job.
Quote:
I want to give a huge THANKS for the Virtuous Team!
I finally released a working transparent HTC clock widget on One X thanks to the new editor.
Quote:
I'm just glad that there are people out there smart enough to do this stuff! I was seconds away from getting a Samsung.

Thank you Diamond for this superb tool and updates!

Hi Diamondback, love your work..

Still in the process of learning and the VTS website is a great source. Although some links are broken when either accessed from the application and from the xda forums. The link to tutorials is one such example.

The main reason I'm here though is, Can I ask? Have you considered making a Linux version of this? More like for Ubuntu to be specific..

Thanks coal686.. Now i know the reason.. the software was developed using visual studio I believe with sources integrated from various sources that are based on visual studio, hence the port isn't an option as of now. Switching back and forth to windows just for Virtuous Studio is a bummer. Maybe a VM would help. Let me see..

Thanks for the pointer though..
