Large Update to Virtuous Ten Studio Adds Support for Stubborn Sense Files
Earlier, we brought you news of Virtuous Ten Studio. The application brings an all-in-one approach to modifying various files, including apk, jar, and other framework files. It also features the ability to edit Smali code and also includes a number of handy learning tools. Virtuous Ten Studio has released a big update recently, and now the application is capable of supporting M10 files.
For those who are unaware, XDA Forum Member and Recognized Developer Diamondback, developer of VTS, explains exactly what M10 files are:
Without an editor for these files, you can’t port Sense to devices with a different resolution and more advanced mods are not possible.
M10 files are responsible for the most part of apps like Rosie (the sense launcher), the lockscreen or the worldclock.
So, VTS recently got support for m10 files (especially the newer Sense 4 ones, they were not decodable at all before) and according to users it seems to be stable.
So, as Diamondback explains, M10 files are essential for the porting and proper modding of Sense files. Particularly, Sense 4.0 files and future versions of Sense. Along with the treasure trove of modification tools already in VTS, being the only application capable of editing M10 gives the application a unique placement in Android development.
