Software Releases • Virtuous Ten Studio (VTS) v.

Virtuous Ten Studio (VTS) v.
Requirements: Microsoft .net framework 4.0 FULL,Lastest Java Runtime (JRE),>= 1GB RAM recommended


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 last year by the Virtuous Team. You can easily edit any m10 file from Sense apps in order to resize or change them.

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

ScreenDIM Full 1.18


Is your minimum screen brightness still too bright? Dim your screen below what your device normally permits for comfortable use in darker environments, reading in bed, amateur astronomy, etc.! No root required.

Save your five favorite brightness and contrast settings as a preset, and get it back by touching a single button or by a Launcher shortcut (ScreenDim also provides a Launcher shortcut to cycle through the presets, and another Launcher shortcut to disable it).

ScreenDim also creates a notification item in your status bar so you can easily go back to it to adjust settings.

ScreenDim is the first dimmer that can both adjust backlight brightness below what the system normally permits on many LCD devices and dim the contrast. Some dimmers only filter and lower the contrast, which keeps the black areas unchanged and glowing gray on LCD devices when in the dark and doesn't save battery life (and at least one does it in a way that slows down 2D screen performance by about 30% in my testing). Many other dimmers only change the backlight within the range normally allowed by the OS.

I recommend you install ScreenDim Trial prior to purchasing the Full version to try it out for three days to ensure full compatibility with your device.

If you have any problems with ScreenDim, email before leaving poor feedback. There is a lot of variation in how different devices handle screen brightness, and I may be able to adjust ScreenDim to work better for you.

Note 1: On OLED devices, there is no backlight, so all adjustment is contrast-adjustment.

Note 2: If you set ScreenDim too dark for you to see the screen, you can recover by adjusting brightness with the volume buttons while in ScreenDim, or by tapping where the brightness adjust should be on the screen if you don't have volume buttons, or by rebooting your device (on many devices this is done by holding the power button for up to ten seconds to turn the device off and then by turning on the device).

General Questions/Answers for Maple

Q. Sound skipping during playback

A. Please increase the 'Audio Buffer Size' in the settings.

* General note about choosing the best audio buffer size

The bigger the audio buffer size, the lower the chance you will hear unexpected clicks in the audio when using a lot of processing power. But at the same a bigger audio buffer size also causes a higher latency.

Using a smaller audio buffer size gives you a lower latency, but then make sure your CPU can handle it, otherwise clicks may appear in your audio because the CPU can't process it all quick enough.
