decompiling and recompiling framework-res for ics
this is a basic tutorial on decompiling and recompiling framework-res for ics.
thanks to this thread here
which posted the latest aapt and the idea to use two versions of apktool. more is needed though and there are some unnecessary actions so i am adding to this for the rezound.
download this file which contains two versions of apktool and the latest aapt
add the contents to your apktool folder. rename apktool 1.4.2 to just apktool
install your ics framework
apktool if framework-res.apk
apktool if com.htc.resourses.apk
you will see flag errors but disregard.
apktool d framework-res.apk <out>
again you will see flag errors but disregard.you will also see errors in values-hdpi and values- xdpi pointing to the drawables xml. i deleted both xmls to mod the battery percentage.
. rename apktool to apktool 1.4.2. rename apktool 1.4.3 to just apktool.
this is rather strange but this is what has worked. go to res/values/anims
<item type="anim" name="htc_ime_decelerate_interpolator">@anim/zzz_htc_ime_decelerate_interpolator</item>
apktool b <out>
the anims xml is rebuilt as before which is the strange part.
please post any questions or issues
