    To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

    k what i do is i leave the original apk zipped and click open archive then only pull the res to the desktop ( it will make a copy to the desktop) then make your edits then drag and drop the res folder back into the apk and you should be set

    ok not quite understanding sorry. Ok like I said I am using metick's frg83 deodexed v3 rom as a base. So I downloaded that zip file, opened it, made all the deletes explained in the OP. When I open the app folder it is all the apk files but they are in exec. Now I can unzip them using a program or even the stock archive utility and I can get into all the folders. I replace the icon I want to change, it gives me the do you want to replace deal and I click yes to it. After that is where I get stuck, I can't get that to stick for some reason. I can't get the apk back to the original exec state it was in on my Mac.

    Edit: maybe unzip is the wrong word, when I double click the apk it gives me a folder with the same name but with "folder" added to the end of the apk

    Learning is accomplishing something, always remember that. You learn so much through trial and error. Keep at it bro, you'll get it.

    ok so my stubbornness wouldn't allow me to go to bed. I am following some rabbit holes not leading me anywhere real productive yet but now I am seeing stuff about signing and resigning apk's, do I have to worry about that at all?

    So after many a trial and error I have come to the conclusion I cannot edit apk's properly on a Mac. I am sure it can be done, just not be me, haha. So right now I am in the process of getting Ubuntu up and running on my Mac.

    With Ubuntu, you don't need to download a different archive manager to work with the .apk's. The stock will work great.

    Nice, so far the install has been super easy. I am installing it through a free virtualmachine I found, its called virtualbox if anyone is interested. That way I don't have to worry about dual booting.
