Hope posting this here is OK- I never get answers in Q&A...:rolleyes:

I have made & modified themes for the SE stock 'rom' and as you know the framework-res and system apks do not need to be recompiled or signed when just exchanging images.
Is it the same for CM 6 'roms'?
I am looking into theming Wolfbreak's rom and noticed the framework-res that I'm using as a base says "signed by SignApk" when I open it in winrar.
Do I need to recompile & sign or not?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

You dont need to sign regardless of OS if you are only swapping images for system files. But remember to use optimized pngs and zipalign as final step to minimize resources consumption.

If you are modding any resources.arsc you need to decompile to do that and recompile and sing accordingly.
