Working around in some apk's, I noticed that some apps are more tricky to work with.
I will show you in this tutorial how to decompile/recompile/Sign Whatsapp.apk
My Apktool -Yorzua Kit
I just added a complete KIT including all the tools in one folder.
no need anymore to use Openssl or change/move to another program.
to decompile :
apktool d <yourwhatsappname>.apk ( can be whatever name you give to your apk )
see my tuto here to give an idea how to edit the xml files and smali files with Notepad++ (Written on C++ and using Win32API, you will be able to easily change, copy, trace, find all the codes you will find in this guide ).
to compile :
apktool b <yourwhatsappname> ( can be whatever name you give to your apk )
java -jar SignApk.jar testkey.x509.pem testkey.pk8 <yourwhatsappname>.apk <yourwhatsappname>_signed.apk
Those following screenshots are some examples of what you can achieve by decompiling - editing at your taste - compiling - signing an apk like Whatsapp
Or even the 1st Whatsapp Transparent in the web !!!
I am quite busy at the moment but if you are interested on my work,
please visit my Whatsapp MODS Thread
I thought it is a good addition to this whatsapp tuto, especially for the bubbles.9.png's
If you come by my thread and like my work, i ask nothing more than a little thanks for the effort.
If you dont, then just give me credits if you use it.
Thanks for reading, i wish you a great day ☼
