[Guide] How to port Stock 2.3.6 apps to cm7
Many stock Samsung apps are awesome and beautifully looking, also cyanogen mod is fast and high customizable, you dont need to sacrfice CM& for good looking apps anymore
1- get your desired App from System/app + twframework.jar and twframework-res.apk from System/framework
2- Decompile all of them Using APK Manager
OR Virtous Ten Studio
or any other apps
Guide for decompile,compile : HERE
3- Remove the library dependence from the AndroidManifest.xml
The line looks like this:
and remove any lines contain ‘com.device.samsung’
This to make it install on non samsung roms
4- Copy the twframework code into the app source.
The app now contains both its own code, and all the needed TouchWiz code. There’s a small chance it might work if you recompile it now, but it probably also needs resources
5-Update the resources
a. Add the needed files/parts
search for any ‘@touchwiz:’ parts in any xml file under res/.
Next, you will need to merge everything under /res/ from the twframework-res.apk.
Copy over anything that doesn’t already exist. Files under /res/values/ (Except public.xml) will need to be merged, meaning insert all the values from the framework into the app, before the closing tag (Keep the XML valid). If your missing any resources, re-compiling the APK will fail
b. Remove the touchwiz references
Replace every ‘@touchwiz:’ with just an ‘@’
Copied directly from OP :
There are some calls to IDs in the 0x20 range, this is an issue because as far as I know, the 0x20 range can only be provided by the system somehow. For the Calendar app, I had to remove setIcon calls in a few activities to prevent ResourceNotFound exceptions.
If you remove them, then some things like images might not work. I also found that just removing them can cause random NullPointer errors.
Note: While working on the Task Manager, it became more complex. I had to update the old 0x20 references to the references within the new package.
After the resources are added, decompile it again, so the added resources show up in the /res/values/public.xml
Search for the old 0x20 value, and update it to the new value. If you include the /smali/touchwiz/ directory, then you can just search for the hex value and you will get the name of it from the TW R.smali files, and you can find the updated hex value in the /res/value/public.xml file
7. Sign the apk using platform key or testkey from HERE
Most apps uses testkey but if you had any permission error, use platform key or search google for the error
adb push /system/app/
using system app installer
using any root explorer
-Me, for simplifing it
