I’m not even going to bother explaining the benefits and overall awesomeness of the Xposed Framework. I’m quite sure that you are all well aware of it by now. There are a huge number of modules out there for the framework, capable of making a vast number of modifications to your device, quite a few of which involve altering the aesthetics of the UI.
Hot off the heels of his previous module, XDA Senior Member WisdomSky has come up with yet another way from to alter the appearance of your device in the form of ResXploit. This module allows you to make modifications to various APK files on the device without the need to extract, decompile, modify, recompile, and push back to the device. Doing it the old fashioned way can be a tedious process when all you want to do is make a simple change.
ResXploit has two parts, a terminal (where the commands are entered) and an engine (which processes the commands). This configuration allows the end user to make changes here and there on the fly, and also allows developers to make changes and remove the terminal from their ROMs meaning no further changes can then be made. The values that can be altered using ResXploit are drawable, string, and boolean, assuming you know the name of the target APK file and the change you wish to make, This can be achieved in a matter of seconds, all on the device itself.
Check out the original thread for more information and a detailed guide on using the module.
