Can you explain what you mean by "You can avoid it by adding some strings to intern() method in each smali."?
I was able to get the apk to install and run using the new package name without renaming the folders. The process name is changed in the list of running processes. But this app launches a service, and when it tries to do so, it fails and the app closes. Not seeing any errors in logcat. Could this be because I need to edit the intern() method?
