    Framework-res.apk

    hey, Im looking for some guidance from all you seasoned themers. Im trying to mod /res/values/styles.xml from decompiled framework-res.apk.

    Simple text color change so I can go full black softkey menus. (see attached)

    I have scoured xda, and google code for a updated comprehensive guide to framework-res.apk themes but I am getting nowhere, lots of various methods offered, nothing working for me. Is there something MIUI specific that I am not seeing?

    apktool if framework-res.apk
    apktool d
    -------------------------------Make XML change Here-------
    apktool b
    ----im not getting a .apk in the build dir. (using apktool 1.3.1,and r01-3)

    i tried just winzipping + signing then pushing to system, and flashing as update. I could use a hand something serious.

    Appreciate any help.

    ecsnead69, thanks for your help man, APK Manager was just the ticket.



    Started to dive into skinning the icons... a bit more than I care to bite off now.

    The volume control bg is from the iphone theme. There is a new version of it on the last page of the miui-dev thread, author had some prob updating the OP or something. I can post u my framework-res if u want but ide feel better if a more experienced themer hooked u up, mine is giving me white text on offwhite app menus, ide hate that for ya.

    The vol bg in the iphone zip is in framework/res/drawtable-hdpi folder, just copy it from there into your theme. Be sure to run that by the original author though if u plan on distributing. he put allot of work into that theme.

    Gl bro.
