ResXploit Allows Theming without Decompiling APK Files

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.

Editorial: XDA Team Experiences & Why We Love the Site

For many power users, Android and XDA go hand in hand. The sheer amount of apps, themes, mods and ROMs in this site make it an enthusiast’s dream, and when I was offered a position to write for the XDA Portal 5 months ago, I was honored beyond explanation. Since then, I’ve learned more about XDA and the industry than I could have expected, and my views on Android, economies, communities and the world at large have been largely influenced...
