    I created (well edited) a pandora background and want to recreate the original apk and push it to my phone. I tried switching system to r/w, pushing, restarting, rezipping the apk file, changing name to .apk, yet it wont install. Can someone direct me somewhere to how to repack apk files? Attached is the background I want to use. Thanks in advance. I know zero about programming, so starting slow.

    Don't unzip the orginal. Use 7zip or winzip to open as an archive and put the edited images in the correct folder. Since this is a /data/app it needs to be pushed to /system/app or resigned.

    this is what you find when you take the time to search!
    i think my question has been answered but want to be sure.
    i made some wifi and battery icons i could not figure out how to push back. so if i understand correctly. grab the sys\framework-res file from phone place on pc. open with 7z but not extract. take the updated files and overwrite the files in the 7z archive. then push back to phone which will over write the sys\framework-res.
    of course make back ups!

    cheers!
