I want to take a semi-transparent lockscreen from one hero rom and put it on another hero rom that doesn't have a transparent lockscreen
i've tried replacing com.htc.resources.apk and when the phone reboots i hear the notification sound that the USB is connected but all i see is the htc loading symbol. the home screen never loads.
totally going in the wrong way for that
the reason your getting a htc screen hang is bcuase the resources.apk your using prolly came from a different WWE build than the one your applying it to.... so go back to the one that came with your rom ... moving on to transparent lockscreen
what hero rom are you trying to modify and are you trying to mod the lockscreen grafics as well?
if your modding the graphics for the lockscreen bar unzip (using winrar) the apk (keep the original apk file) and inside one of the folders is one called draw port 480x280 the loscreen bar images are right there to edit
when your done editing
open the original resources.apk with winrar and navigate to that drawport480x280 folder
drag your modified images to the winrar window that is opened to the drawport480x280 when you modify the images keep the names that were originally corresponding with the images...so that the system can find them when it loads the lockscreen. and it will have a prompt click on ok and it will put those images back in your apk
now adb push your new resources.apk to your phone reboot to enjoy your modified lockscreen bar.
to change the image to transparent....(use photoshop to make a transparent .jpg image) get in root explorer on your phone and navigate to your /system/etc/lockscreen/port/ folder and the htc.lockcscreen1.jpg image is the one were gunna replace so name your custom image from photoshop the same thign that that htc.lockscreen1.jpg and then adb push (or root explorer copy) it to the /system/etc/lockscreen/port/ to replace original effects should apply immediatly then enjoy your fully modified lockscreen
