Custom APK & Flashing *HELP*
I have a question and i may be taking a shot in the dark with this so bare with me I'm currently rooted running Myns RLS4 and i see that quite a few people customized it. I know howto grab the .apk's and place them on my computer. However, my question is, when i go into edit these .apk files, do i change .apk > .zip then open the .zip and extract the file contents to the computer as the original name of the .apk but in folder form? If so, when i edit in photoshop and then i'm done/saved and good to go... How do i go about making it flashable or for instance, if i edited Rosie.apk, i'm looking to edit the battery, so say i did- how do i go about putting it on my phone or making it flashable? I'm sorry if this is confusing but i'd like to make my phone a bit more unique. If anyone has a guide on this stuff, that would be appreciated lol. Thanks!
If it means anything, i'm on a Mac.

for mac I use Yellow Mug Software - Quality Shareware and Freeware Exclusively for Mac OS X
They have a good zip program for zipping the file back up. I use it when I make bootanimations. Try it out for the themeing. It should work. Mac OS has an internal unzipper already so don't worry about that.
