Theme Your Paid Apps Easily with Remote Theme Injector

There are some great themes out there for specific applications—both free and paid. The problem with theming paid apps however, is that once you’ve spent hours and hours fiddling with PNG files and digging through XML files, you can’t share your work. Well not anymore, because XDA Recognised Developers and Forum Moderators Diamondback and Whiskey103 have come up with a rather ingenious solution to that particular problem.

Remote Theme Injector is a tool to theme APK files (both free and paid) which will then allow you to share your themes with others, without distributing the APK itself. There are two parts to the tool—the patcher and the editor. The patcher is a Windows executable that will simply allow you to select your target app, which will then be decompiled, patched, recompiled, signed, and zip-aligned before your eyes with absolutely no effort at all. The editor is a tool for creating the themes themselves. It’s a simple wizard-style app that will walk the themer through the steps required to create a theme file for their chosen APK. A full and comprehensive guide to using the tool can be found in the forum thread.

I’m sure there’s no need for me to tell you just how cool this is, and I’m sure we’ll begin to see a load of great themes for some of Android’s most popular apps springing up once this catches on. If you’d like to find out more about this, check out the release thread. That said, I’m off to butcher some apps.

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...

What’s Next For Pebble?

It is all well and good stating figures, but what does $20 million of crowd funding mean for a company? The Pebble Time just recently ended their Kickstarter with over 4000% of their initial request which was just $500,000.  This level of funding is unprecedented for Kickstarter and it passed $1 million in less than an hour bringing with it a level of fame unavailable to many other OEMs.     Produced by the Pebble Technology Corporation (PTC), the Pebble Watch has...
