[Q] editing .so file
I'm trying to modify a .so file (libflashplayer.so), but have run into a few problems:
- I first tried editing the file after it was installed from an .apk. This appears to work at first, but the edited file is quickly replaced with the original.
- I then tried editing the file in the .apk package. This causes the package to fail to install (I'm guessing because the md5 in the certificates no longer matches)
- Aldo tried moving a folder with the .so files from the .apk (com.adobe.flashplayer-1 which is what is created when the .apk installs correctly) directly into /data/app-lib/.The directory was created successfully but appears to be immediately deleted.
Is there a way to accomplish what I'm trying to do? If so how?
Other possibly relevant info:
My device is rooted
I did not write the code for anything in the .apk, I got it from a link on xda (pretty dubious i know but I couldn't find another option)
I'm using cyanogenmod 10.2 (based on android 4.2 I believe).
I'm editing the file with a hex editor to change a a few characters ("AND" to "WIN")
