    Not to be critical of the tutorial, but I've used apk manager for quite awhile and it's not quite as easy as the tutorial would make it seem. Also the example they used of what you can do with this tool was simply ridiculous.

    i downloaded and tried apkmanager and figured it out on my first try...it's about as easy a tool as imaginable and all the "only experts should do this" stuff is frankly weird. so i'm a little confused by "it's not as easy as the tutorial would make it seem". what exactly stumps you about apkmanager? It's one of the most convenient and easy to use tools available out there. Maybe it's just me, and it really is hard to use? I don't know...I don't see it...When I use it, I don't feel like "Wow I'm a super haxxor!! No one could figure this out!!" that being said, stuff like this is obviously not for everyone (as evidenced by the two replies here). the tutorial gives you a step by step of everything you need to do...so the confusion about apkmanager is odd haha

    also, how is editing your system text any more ridiculous then editing your eri.xml or making your status bar orange? it's customization and that's the point of hacking/editing apks. again...confusion haha.

    you can use the hack to edit any part of your system, including framework-res.

    I still think people should give it a shot. Anyone can do it (you don't need to be a "dev", or a "hacker" or have a computer science degree and certifications haha), anyone that is who has the ability to read a tutorial past 30 seconds of course...

    text color i'm not positive...i mean it's definitely an xml file, but you've gotta dig around in the apk to find it. which app are you talking about? i can try to take a look and see if i can figure it out.

    i havent really messed with text colors as i havent had a need to.

    Its GroceryIQ. Don't know if it would be easier to change the background color or not.

    Thanks for the help!
