    That didn't work xkape, I did it just like you said and it was actually worse.,
    I had real bad lag, and no sign of change at all..
    The best results I've had so far are skipping the keep folder delete procedure by hitting no then signing followed by taking the resource file and moving it into the apk I pulled from the system.

    I'm using stock right now, then I put my drawables back in after signing. its the closest I've gotten so far..I'm all around the fence just can't find the gate.

    1st, where do you even d/l the stock ROM from? Honestly, I dunno.
    2nd, what are you tring to do exactly? you dont need to bother with image edits, those are easy enough.. tell me about the xml's. You can PM if you want to keep it to yourself.

    I think he means he put the stock images into the ROM so that it'd recompile.... not that it is a stock ROM he's editting

    If I'm reading that part as it seems to be writtten, then there's the bulk of your problems right there...

    Ok. 1st I used Odin to go back to a stock set up and I pulled the system with adb.
    2nd I flashed a custom rom and pulled the system from that as well.
    The custom rom won't decompile and then compile w/o errors, so I replaceed the drawable-hdpi folder with the one from the stock framework...........you follow me............then it compiles without a problem. All is good with that one, it excepts the changes I made to the system, however I have to go w/o the images,Because whenever I replace the drawable-hdpi folder with the one with better looking images...It doesn't take in the phone, I get boot loops or force closes.
    I use an update.zip to flash through recovery.
    Theres gotta be another way to get those images in there.
    lol.......I also did a test, where I decompiled the stock framework then compiled it (no errors) followed by only replacing one .png (the first one in the folder.....status bar something or another....) then I decompiled and recompiled with the exact same errors. The error list is long,telling me that the zzz_unlock_yadda_yadda_yadda....is not defined.
    The thing is alllll those images it says aren't defined, are in the stock rom too, plus.......I didn't even change those images.
    So what do ya think?

    the 1st image in the folder is a .9.png activity_title_bar

    You get those errors trying to recompile the non stock ROM because there are .9.png files in there with no guides on them.

    I have a guess but I need more info..... when you are putting your images back into the recompiled framework, how exactly are you doing that? Tell me what you are doing to the framework file.

    Do this.........

    Decompile your stock ROM framework-res.apk.....
    ...place that decompiled apk into a different new folder named stock_decompiled, you can then delete that stock framework-res.apk from the place here for modding folder...
    ...now decompile your custom ROM framework, so that you will have a decompiled stock framework in the new folder & and the custom framework in the projects folder....you with me so far right?...
    .... then replace any broken .9.png in the projects (custom ROM) folder framework, with the same unbroken .9.png from the new folder (stock ROM) folder..... now you have the custom ROM with all corrected .9.pngs...

    ....from there you just do your XML edits...'Y'es to it is a sytem APK... 'Y'es to copy over all files from the original framework-res.apk into the keep folder.... delete the resources.arsc file, any other XMLs that were in the layout, drawable, or xml folders that editted....and delete any .9.pngs that you corrected (you could even delete all of the PNGs from the drawble-hdpi folder at this stage, and it would replace everything deleted from the keep folder with the projects folder files that isn't found in the keep folder...

    ....then finish recompiling...

    one other thing of note, some ROMs don't like highly compressed APKs, so you can set the compression for APKMgr to 0, or unzip the unsignedframework-res.apk and rezip it as store and renaming to framework-res.apk

    let me know if I didn't explain something properly enough...cheers and good luck
