Oh, how would i put my script into Android SDK?

Hi,

I'm trying to do something along these lines.

I have a keyboard skin that I want to change it's theme from blue to green. I unpacked it several months ago with EasyApk and attempted this but eventually gave up.

I've done all of the color editing to the .png files but after zipping and changing the ext to apk, it won't install. I get this message... "There was a problem parsing the package."

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

RuLEoF2, have you found a solution. I'm getting the same problem.

Nope. The XDA well of good will towards those in need has apparently dried up. Either that or I'm on the do-do list for something.

I haven't gotten responses to any of my last several posts for quite a while now.

Good luck!

I found a work around. I used 7zip in windows and made all of the edits (adding files, removing files, editing contents of files) I needed in the zip file WITHOUT unzipping it (7zip and winrar allow this). Once I did that I changed the extension back to apk and the app installed.

Hope this helps some people.

Not working for me. What editing program are you using for graphics?

For graphics, let's say images. I would work on whatever it is you need to add, outside of the zip, and then just add that file by replacing it with whatever it is you wanted to edit. Do you get what I'm saying?

I used 7zip on windows to do this.

Its like this for me, I got an apk of Loco Craft (Android Game) extracted it into a folder with winrar, then I modified a bunch of things in there, then I compressed it to a .rar file with WinRAR, then I renamed it from application.rar to application.apk. then when I sent it to my phone (Acer B1-730, Android 4.4.2) and opened the apk file, it said: "There was a problem parsing the package"! So what do I do? Please!!! I really want to try my new game! And pls help me I am only 9!!!
