    Hi everyone,

    After what really feels like a long debate over requirements for translators and ICS development in general it seems we have finally reached a common-ground with Xiaomi in regard to how we all modify and translate apk resources.

    I have confirmation that during some time this week there will be positive steps made to introducing as much of the default RES sources for all the MIUI apks as possible to GitHub for everyone to download for modding / translation use. This does not mean Java source, if you ask if this means Java source, shame on you for not reading this article fully :)

    What this means?
    It will make the issues of apktool decompiling apks and messing up resources a thing of the past, which in turn means apks will be built properly with the right values and other elements in original format. It also means a proper GitHub will be available to fork res values and so on from, the the ultimate aim would be a multi-rom which could be built directly by Xiaomi.

    Thanks to
    Wu Na, Feng Hong, Wen Xing, Xinyu, Yuki and the rest of the MIUI group in China for listening to our request to make this a better development community for apk modders and translators. MIUIAndroid.com will always and have always stood by the community and we will continue to do so into the future.

    We hope for more collaborative projects in the very near future with Xiaomi and other developers.

    So when can we expect to receive perfectly translated apks?

    Perfect has nothing to do with the above, it just means there will be less chance of compiler error.
