[Q] Need some help modding APK
I was trying to mod dotview apk to replace HTC voice assist with Google Now and maybe you can help me.
I decompiled the apk and stuck in logcats so I can follow the execution path but I cannot seem to get it to run.
First time I forgot to sign it, so that crashed.
But even once I signed it and pushed it to priv-app I couldn't boot my phone. It may be because I'm in ART... Idk.
I guess I'm a bit lost... Lol. Maybe you can help me...
How does odex/deodex affect apk modding?
Does art affect apk modding?
Do I need HTCs certificates or is the default test cert OK?
What would be the rough outline to mod an apk?
(I'm comfortable modding the smali, I just don't know how to put the apk back properly)
Thank you so much.
