How to Decompile SystemUI.apk and make Modifications !! (For Windows OS)
Okay! I took much time surfing all over the net to find this and finally I got the Perfect solution for people who are beginners(n00b)
If you try to decompile directly it won't work(not atleast for Core but only for some devices), so here we go
Things you will need:
(or something similar)
Make sure you have Java SDK
installed in pc.
or a decent xml editor
1)Copy these two apks' in sd card or somewhere you can access it from pc.
2)Copy these two apk in your computer system
3)Extract APKTOOL and Script until you get "aapt.exe", "apktool.bat", "apktool.jar" .
4) Make a new folder anywhere in your comp. and paste these
(vi) You also need to paste "cmd.exe", use Run command to find it and paste it in the folder...
(i) Open cmd.exe, it should show the location of the current folder
apktool if framework-res.apk
(iii) After it is done, Type
apktool d SystemUI.apk
(iv) Now you successfully have SystemUI.apk decompiled in the same folder !!!
i) Ensure you have not "CUT" but "COPIED" the apks from the folder, this can HARD BRICK your phone !
ii) Decompiling apks' takes time according to one's pc's speed, have patience.
iii) Please do not try to decompile or play with framework-res.apk in anyway if you are not experienced !
iv)And as thcoreguy says
No nuclear war is going on!
