These mods won't work for you then. I'll see if I can dig up some of our mods from the og evo.

I could be wrong but it says that apktool.yml isn't present which usually is created when you decompile. At least I've seen it when I've been doing it.

Can I ask why thus wouldn't work on the og evo? The thing I noticed is it caused a few drawable-hdmi processes to fc in the people.apk.

The phones run completely different versions of sense. The of evo was sense 1. The 3d is sense 3.0 or higher, depending on the Rom

Stupid question, but what was your decompile command?

Hey robobob.. What version android are you running?

I'm afraid that I forgot to mention, whenever you decompile com.htc.resources.apk, there is a folder in there, I believe it's called raw...I'm out of town and not near my laptop right now. Anyway, it contains the animations for the weather on sense 3.0. It will not work if compressed and will cause a FC anytime you turn on your phone. The fix is to take the folder, using 7zip or winrar, and remove it from a non edited resources.apk and drop it into your modified one. Make sure compression on 7zip or winrar is set at store. Sorry about forgetting that little detail. Hope this helps out.

Hi,
I'm on 2.3.4. Others have already said this particular mod won't work as I'm on an older version of sense. It worked on settings and a few other apks but caused several inc. people, to either fc or just not open. something to do with the drawable-hdpi folder. then after a reboot a bootloop.
Thanks for the advice anyway though.
Edit: Tried what you said as a last ditch attempt. I copied over the raw ,and drawable hdmi folder to make sure. Then I added the META-INFO folder and Manifest.xml all from the original com.htc.resources, and bingo!! I got me my transparency! Thanks for the advice Been driving me mental for the past week! I'm a slow learning noob at these things.

As far as trying to mod the evo 4g for transparency in con.htc.resources. Im sure it can be done. I just don't know if the exact same method i used on sense 3.0 would work for earlier versions of sense
