I have been Decompiling the .apk with apktools, Editing the XML, Png, and 9patch files, then compiling again with apktools. I sign the .apk with autosign. I mount my sdcard, Drop the signed .apk file on the root, Unmount sdcard, Move the file to System/App/ and overwrite the current one with root explorer. Then i have to install, but the first time never installs it, I think it just deletes it?, so I have to restart my phone, After boot-up I navigate back to System/App/ With root explorer, Install the app and this time it works. Finally after all this i can open the app and see the changes i have made, there has to be an easier way? Please show me your tricks! This whole process wastes a good 5-10 minutes and if something is not up to par....like 1 or 2 pixels being off on one those darn 9patch files:icon_cussing:, i have to restart the whole process....at this rate ill never finish How do you test your theme in a productive manner?, Thanks alot!
