I don't have my own computer, so I was poking around looking for a solution to work with apk files on my phone and found this:

http://code.google.com/p/apktool/

The apktool folder has to be in the root of your sd card. I was able to successfully decompile and recompile my framework-res.apk with no errors.

Instructions:
Download the archive apktool4.0_armhf.zip from http://code.google.com/p/apktool/downloads/list
Download the updated apk file Apktool4.0.apk as well
Extract/unzip archive to /sdcard/apktool
Install the updated Apktool4.0.apk
Open app from app drawer, and have fun using it!

So please try this out, and let me know what you think!

Check the download section of the code website. there choose the best busybox file that suits you
download it. replace that from the apktool data folder.
