    I've been looking around for a while but cant seem to find a definitive guide/walkthrough to changing res files for apps that are stored in the \data\app\ folder. I have seen a bunch of proposed solutions but not any confirmation of what actually works. Can someone help me out?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    to have a themed app installed in /data/app and have it stay themed you have to re sign it with apk manager after you edit it. the easier way is to move it to /system/app and then edit it with ninjamorph or something similar hence why some themed app are in update zip format and install to /system/app
