Hi all,

I'm trying to fiddle with a Google apk file that I'm reskinning. Essentially there are multiple versions of the app in the wild already, but one has a dark grey background and I'm trying trying to make it all black.

I figure I need to change the xml file contained within the app. I guess I can just root and edit the xml file that way but I want to stay un-rooted if possible. That means editing the APK.

I downloaded Android Multitool and am trying to unpack the APK, make the necessary changes, and repack it. I'll probably run into signature issues down the road but currently I'm stil struggling with repacking. Specifically, I think I need a framework-res.apk, which I don't know how to find.

I'm assuming I need a stock Android framework-res.apk given the nature of the app, but I don't know where to find one....
