Thanks in advance.

Apk project is the right one for the HTC jpgs. I'll have a look at your apk.

In the meantime: I'm about to release the next update.
Go ahead and read about the new features here: (as always, huge thanks to Dunc!)
What's new in 2.2.11

I really like VTS now that I got it to work. The ability to generate Java code from the smali is excellent.

The thing I ran into was that I was running in a VM as I don't use Windows as my main OS. Under vmware it kept using directories like \\vmware-host\shared\apktool. Which didn't exist, and couldn't be created as that's a placeholder for shared folders. I had to create a new share named "apktool" to get it to run. Could you consider adding an option to set a "home" path that is used exactly, without any expansion etc.. So I could tell it to use something on C: for everything and never have it try that? It would make life a LOT simpler for VM users. I could set the project directories and such, but couldn't seem to get apktool to avoid that directory.

I had an issue with Touchwiz system apps not finding resources. Will the multi-framework feature in the new update fix that? Seems like it wants to be able to use framework-res and twframework...

Okay, just tried, worked fine for me. Here's a screenshot of the images:

I am really not sure what's the issue with VMs. What contained these shared folders? (framework apks maybe?) What else besides that apktool folder?

Concerning the Touchwiz thing. Did you actually add ALL framework apks from your ROM (with the same tag)? (current HTC ROMs have 5 or more).
The new feature isn't something new, it just makes it a lot easier to add multiple frameworks with the same tag.

Great!! I really want to test it out, does anyone had any success with running it in Wine? I'm thinking of reinstall Windows only for this software

That's what you are doing wrong :P
If the actual import fails, VTS won't touch the HTC jpgs, so they are left in their jpg form.
Add the required framework(s) with a tag, select this tag in the project settings and import the apk again.
