The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...
.m10 Decompiler Available Soon
You may recall a while back, almost right after the HTC Sensation port became available, that there was an article about instructions provided by XDA member r2DoesInc on how to help with porting the new Sense 3.0 base along with all of its 3D-licious widgets. In this article, the developer also mentions that one of the biggest hurdles in porting this was a set of files with extension .m10 that were all throughout the rom, which were basically files that included several parameters and pieces of code needed for the port as well as all the needed tools to resize the images for lower resolution devices, but that were all encoded in non readable format and that they contained values and parameters of unknown purpose.
In order to solve this problem, XDA members Flemmard and Diamondback2010 have created a compiler / decompiler to use with these .m10 files. Being able to see and edit what is in these files should be extremely helpful in the process of porting into older devices. So, even though this was posted in the Desire HD section, it should be an invaluable tool or any devs working on the port, regardless of the device being worked on.
The tools are currently in alpha stage and will be released shortly. If you find anything interesting, make sure that you share your findings with the rest of your respective community.
We now have an m10 decoder. This should make us able to resize things at will. All credits to Flemmard and Diamondback
The devs have not made an official thread for their official release yet and have kindly asked that whatever versions are floating around to not be used. Please be advised that these versions floating around in other threads are not supported.

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
