Theming a /data/app apk breaks it's signature so, even though it may appear in your file manager, it won't appear in your launcher.

To get it to work, you'd need to re-sign the apk using the private key used by the application's developer.

So I think what's best is that we remove /data/app theming support, though insertion of full signed APKs into /raw/data/app would be possible... But doing so needs a new sig, so anyone using the old original APK won't see the newo ne until packages database was purged of the old sig...

So summary? If app is on /data, don't go near it
Read first...Then search...Then ask...

Any help regarding this matter would be appreciated. Themers are advised to resort to manually recompiling the APKs until we can work something out.
