I made this tool specially for the owners of Sony Xperia devices. As in new frimware of Sony when we edit framework-res.apk we get infinite bootloop. I have made some framework mod for Sony devices. That's why people keep PM'ing me how did I edit framework-res.apk. So, here is the solution for them. This tool can be use for other manufacturers too.
