Thank you. Ok, I think it may be the resources.arsc that is being created at the time of compile. I took the framework-res.apk that caused the lockscreen sizing issue and replaced the resources with the one from the original apk, it fixed the resizing but I lost my edits to the colors.

I only made hex edits to the colors.xml only. There werent any sizing code lines in it. I am retrying right now to see if it was just a fluke. If you have any idea why this would happen, your help is much appreciated.

EDIT: Yeah, tried again. Same thing. Im not sure whats causing it. I am completely replacing the whole xml file from a theme that isnt for my device but like i said, there arent any defining items in the xml that would cause this. Ill try make the edits one by one to the original xml and see if it does it again.

EDIT2: Nope, still skews the lockscreen. Ill post an image.



EDIT3: So I am trying to single out what is happening. I went ahead and just decompiled/compiled the framework without making a single edit. I only deleted the resources.arsc before compile. It still does it. Im at a loss right now but I am going to keep trying.

I'm going crazy!!

I tried them all really, decompiled and recompiled 1.4.2 with apktools apktools with 1.4.3, I tried all the possible tools on xda but nothing doing, the framework-res.apk not recompile.

I want to do your own thing, have the lockscreen clock in blue and I think the value to change is http://androidxref.com/source/xref/f...0dp/colors.xml

Can you please tell me how you did (and what) to rebuild the framework-res.apk to achieve your result

With apkmanager 5.0.2 can decompile and recompile the framework res.apk-but once the folder is not decompiled sw600dp-values ​​(as with other versions of apkmanager I could edit the xml file)

It is possible that there is a way, it is 4 days I try and read guides on guides but none share the positive experience with the error plurals. I manually changed all the values ​​in row 79 but to no avail.

EDIT: ieeeaaaah...i've recompiled my framework-res.apk but I have not my lockscreen clock in blue with change framework-res.apk\res\values\colors.xml and I have the same problem of you

Just so you know, my clock is blue because it is AOKP and I changed it via rom control settings. I am not sure what edits need to be made for the clock.

I also had to give up on using apkmanager. Search Google for ics apktool.
