But that's what aapt2 pointed me when I tried to recompile, it pointed me all the lines where dummy values were.
I tried on 2 different framework-res.apk (Android Pie And Nougat) , but always, I got in the same file (attrs.xml) at the same lines apktool dummies.
I used to decompile and recompile successfully the Nougat framework-res.apk with an older version of apktool on my older Linux Ubuntu desktop.
Now that I switched back to windows, things are getting crappy again
But you made me realize something: when I decompile the APK, apktool replaces unread values with dummy values. So it my have something to do with apktool itself or not the good frameworks install or something else.
What's sure is that something is wrong at the beginning of the process , and dummy values as well as the inability to recompile are only the results of a previous error occurred because ... God knows why!
I get the best results from apktool 2.3.2 It's all I use unless modding android 10
