Easy Method To Change Framework-res.apk

Easy Method To Change Framework-res.apk

If you find that you need to change your framework-res.apk often (maybe you theme a lot or just generally do a lot of tweaking), then XDA forum member propc has created a useful shell script that you might want to check out.

You’ll need root access and BusyBox installed. All you need to do is copy framework-res.apk that you wish to apply, to the root of your SD, extract reframe.zip to your SD card root and type in a command.

Upon reboot, your phone will have framework-res.apk replaced safely. The original framework-res.apk will be backed up as ‘framework-res.apk.orig’ in /sdcard.

For more information and to download the script, check out the forum thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
