    I modded the pandora apk version 1.5 and it is force closing when I try to open it on my phone. all i did was change a couple images and edit the widget xml file so that it is slightly wider. When I install it it will load up and have me sign in with my account, but then when i select a station it just force closes. What am i doing wrong?

    I did the same thing with the new version of the espn scorecenter app and it worked fine.

    I am using apk manager 4.9, i decompile, make my changes, then recompile, sign, and install.

    Frustrating isnt it. Break down the problem. Dont edit the xml and see if it works. Gotta see where the problem lies.

    thanks for the help :)

    so i did what you suggested, i didnt edit the xml files, i only replaced a couple images. in apk manager i first decompiled, replaced images, then recompiled, signed, and installed and it still force closes on me. the only images i edited were the widget backroung images, and those load fine with i add the widget (widget always loaded fine, even when i edited the xml files too). i only get force closes when i go to run the app, it will go to the pandora splash screen for a second, then force close. what does this mean the issue is?
