[TOOL] Framework Flasher 1.1.4 (1/14/12) - Easily modify and flash framework-res.apk
After days of struggling to figure out how to modify my ROM's framework-res.apk and create a working flashable update.zip
to install the framework-res.apk changes, I have finally figured out how (big thanks to the guys here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...0#post20962080
) and have created an automated script to help others struggling with the same problem.
Framework Flasher 1.1.4
Feel free to download and experiment with it. This is my first gift to the XDA/Android Hacking community, and I plan on doing more. I just want to test the waters for now
Feedback would be nice. Let me know if I've helped you in some way!
What does it do?
It extracts your framework-res.apk file and allows you to edit the files. After editing, the script will compile, sign the apk, create your update.zip with the correct structure for flashing, and then sign the .zip. Everything you need to modify and flash your framework-res.apk file.
How do I use it?
Download the .zip from the link below and extract it somewhere on your PC. Drag the framework-res.apk file that you want to modify and/or flash into the /place-framework-res-here
/ directory. Double-click on RunMe.bat
and off you go! Do the steps (1-5) in order and you shouldn't have any problems.
Who needs this?
A LOT of people according to how many google searches I did in the past 3-4 days.
Will it work for files other than framework-res.apk?
Currently, no. However it would be easy to implement that functionality if I saw that people would benefit from it.
I found a bug... what do I do?
Post it in this topic. I'll do what I can to make continual updates as long as I see people are benefiting from it. I'm sure there are bugs in it somewhere, so just let me know.
Where do I download this snazzy piece of software?
