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

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

[VRTHEME][TEMPLATE] EVilTheme
v1.5 released!

The commits until this release are supposed to fix a lot of bugs since v1.3. Tested on my Galaxy Express running CM11.0 (before it got bricked for some reason...)

Thank you Big time.. Soon I will convert all my themes to your EVRT.. I think it's great that you are continuing development, and making VRT even better..

Wow... Lol you're welcome

Recoveries can be funny sometimes. Test it out on a spare app first.

Yes. I've tested this on my device running CM 10.1 (and now 11.0), and they all work fine. I tested the theme engine on Apollo, if you're asking.
