just curious: how did you do this? you can't get source from compiled binary files.. does this program reads these informations from a file in the apk which is separately editable like az xml or something?

    Skype 2.9.0.315 mod - v17

    Skype 2.9.0.315 modded (build v17) !

    Changelog:
    ~ Based on new Skype build 2.9.0.315


    Changes compared to original Skype:
    • Exit button (kills app & service)
    • Minor fixes here and there (vibration, chat, video-calls)
    • Speaker toggle while in call (just press your phone's MENU button)
    • Bluetooth audio toggle while in call (just press your phone's MENU button), uses *my* code for BT Audio, so you can try it for mono headsets or headsets that don't work with Skype's original BT support
    • Camera LED/flash support while in video-call (just press your phone's MENU button)
    Advanced Settings:
    → Sign-in status picker, allows you to pick your desired status (availability), which will be applied automatically just after logging-in.
    → Keep screen alive, disables proximity sensor for calls
    → Force-enable video-calling, for phones that can't get video-calling enabled.
    *Video-calling needs compatible CPU (ARMv7). If your phone's CPU is not compatible, Skype will keep crashing/looping at login!*
    → Force enable camera rotation, will attempt to enable camera rotate option (under the camera selection popup)
    → Avoid setFPS, for some users that get black image in video-calls
    → Use valid preview surface, for some users that get black image in video-calls (a bit buggy at the moment, but better than nothing ;))
    → Prefer full-screen incoming video, won't allow your back camera image to take the whole screen leaving the incoming image minimized
    → Force notification LED/BLN, for users that "Pulse notification light" option (in Skype original settings) doesn't actually enable notification LEDs or BLN!
    → Advanced camera settings (resolution/focus/scene/white balance/color effect)
    Ringtone picker!
    Notification sound picker!
    → Disable vibration entirely
    → Disable sign-in/out vibration and/or sounds
    Notifications' vibration pattern picker!
    → Verbose logging, use it for debugging, when capturing logs​
