Virtuous Ten Studio makes smali work a breeze

Now and again I come across something that, while not new, deserves to be brought to the attention of MoDaCo readers by virtue of it's awesomeness. One such example is Virtuous Ten Studio.

VTS is a Windows based IDE (sadly no Mac / Linux support) designed to work with reverse-engineered APK files, particularly the smali code that decompiling an APK produces.

Virtuous Ten Studio (VTS) is the ultimate solution for the modification of android applications. This program allows you to manage entire Android projects within an easy to use and familiar environment.

The intended group of users covers anyone from a themer over ROM devs up to the smali gods known for their awesome mods of existing apks. The modifcation of smali code is one of the biggest features in VTS. You can easily decompile, edit and recompile any apk or jar file. However, the application is not limited to smali files. You can edit almost any file found inside an apk or jar.

Virtuous Ten Studio is also the official successor to the highly important M10Tools released 2011 by the Virtuous Team. You can easily edit any m10 file from Sense apps in order to resize, modify or theme them.

Additionally VTS brings support for un- and repacking of boot images (boot.img), a job that previously required a cygwin installation with the dsixda kitchen. Since VTS' own implementation is a native windows solution, which means you don't need dsixda or cygwin anymore.

VTS has been designed to run on Windows, has been in development for over a year and has gone through many stages of testing. We now feel that the it is mature enough to be released publicly.

The list of awesome features is extremely impressive, not least because the application is free (although you can buy a licence for between 15 and 25 Euros for various levels of support). When it comes to the traditionally messy task of working with Smali, the application offers syntax highlighting, live syntax error checking, the ability to jump directly to smali references (method calls, fields, classes, gotos) and help files on almost every smali command and topic - incredibly impressive. That is really just scratching the surface of what it offers.

Looking to give it a try or want to learn more? Head on over to the Virtuous Ten Studio site.
