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.

OnePlus 2 Bares All in New Tear Down Gallery

Last year, the launch of the OnePlus One, dubbed 'the flagship killer', visibly shook the foundations of the mobile OEM sphere, with OnePlus delivering high-end flagships specs at a very affordable price. The initial launch phase was met with mixed feelings after a few controversial marketing tactics, but they eventually gave way to strong sales figures.   Earlier this week, OnePlus went on to unveil the successor to the One, and while the device continues to offer top-of-the-line specs at...

Focus – An Attractive But Raw Gallery Replacement

Focus is an attractive new app built by XDA members Liam Spradlin and Francisco Franco, the latter being well-known in the forums for his kernels. Focus aims to completely replace your gallery app with some neat tricks, but at a potentially risky time considering that Google has thrown its weight into the photo-organization arena. This is a first draft of the app of course, but we'll pitch it against its main rivals here, namely the popular QuickPic and the aforementioned Google Photos.     The first...
