Tool to Help HTC Rezound Themers
Theming can involve a number of long and tedious activities. Applying the same theme to dozens, even hundreds of icons. even more tedious is taking those icons and putting them back into the apk files they came from.
For users of the HTC Rezound, there’s one less step from concept to completion. XDA Senior Member MrSmith317 has created a .bat script that automatically switches out the icons in the com.htc.resources.apk, framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk for your themed ones. As with any new software, there are a few peculiarities that people who want to try it and some potential improvements that could be added in future releases. As MrSmith317 explains:
Only gotcha is that it is case sensitive providing the APK name. I’d love to hear feedback if you give it a try. I’ll revise this again in a bit after I get some feedback. If there’s interest I’ll build one that allows XML swaps as well.
The instructions are very easy to follow so there’s virtually no learning curve for those who are still new to the theming world. Just drop the icons into the appropriate folder and run the script.
For those themers out there who want to check it out, you can find the script download, the instructions and discussion about it in the tool’s thread.

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
