· A Brain
· An APK to Work With!
· PC/Android Device
· A Little Knowledge in DroidEdit or Notepad++
Now Let’s Start—
At First Decompile your APK using a Suitable and comfortable apktool. Use Apk-Multitool/Virtuous or other Tools.
As you can see there are 2 files and 2 Folders inside Decompiled XVipreSetting.apk Folder.
APK Name: XVipreSettings.apk
APK Package Name: com.xvipre.settings
We’ll Change it to the following—
APK Name: ModdedApp.apk
APK Package Name: com.modded.app
Before you begin, Let me tell you that all the modification done in this Project are Imaginary!
You have to assume that the package is com.xvipre.settings but actually it’s different for each app in the world! So you must know about what you are going to do, and what all these means!
It’s just an example! You have to use your app’s package and your desired app package name! Or Else it won’t Work at all!
Now Open apktool.yml and Search for these lines--
packageInfo: cur_package: com.xvipre.settings orig_package: com.xvipre.settings
Now Edit the Package Name and APK Name as You Desire—
packageInfo: cur_package: com.modded.app orig_package: com.modded.app
Save the File and Close apktool.yml
Now Open AndroidManifest.xml and Look for these lines—
<manifest android:hasCode="false" android:versionCode="14" android:versionName="2.1" android:installLocation="internalOnly" package="com.xvipre.settings"
Now Edit the Package name here—
<manifest android:hasCode="false" android:versionCode="14" android:versionName="2.1" android:installLocation="internalOnly" package="com.modded.app"
Save and Exit.
Now Navigate to /smali/com/xvipre and Do the Following
· Rename settings to app
· Go Back to /smali/com Folder and Rename xvipre to modded
Now It’s Time to Go Hardcore!!
Open Notepad++ And Press Ctrl+F to Open “Find”
Click on Find in Files
Now in Directory, Click on “Browse” or “…”
Now Navigate to your Working Folder and Select /smali/
Now Click on Find What: and Type Your Package Name! But Like This—
Now It Shall take up to 1-2 Minutes to Find and Replace all the package names in smalis!
When Done, Just Re-Check All the Files, Folder Names, Recheck AndroidManifest.xml to Find Another Line with Package name And Make Corrections Yourself!
Done for Now! Just Re-Compile and *SIGN* your Newly Created APK!!
Install the APK as User App! See if it Worked!
