Okay, so I hope this is in the right area on this forum, because it MIGHT belong in themes depending on how people use this info... Mods, feel free to move it, or put it in both areas.
But I have searched high and low, and haven't found any threads here on how to sign an apk, so that you can install it again after modding it. This is necissary to skip a ton of terminal or adb code.
SO HERE IT IS!
xda-developers - View Single Post - [HOW TO] Manuals for creating a theme
That thread at xda should get people here set up for modding apk themes, or apk files etc. then just resign them so they are installable again.
THIS SHOULD MAKE USING FORUM HACKS MUCH EASIER FOR NOOBS!
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE, let me know how it goes. and share some of your work with me ;] I love beta testing!
