Virtuous Ten Studio

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.

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.


This is only a short summary of all features, a full list of features can be found here.
  • Never before seen UI
    • Fully featured IDE
    • Integration of useful third party tools
      • ApkTool
      • ADB
      • Zipalign
      • Sign
      • many more
    • Work with your apks just like having real java code
    • Support for apks and framework jars
    • Easily keep track of multiple apks/jars with the Solution Explorer
  • Edit smali code like never before
    • Syntax highlighting
    • Jumping to smali references (method calls, fields, classes, gotos)
    • Help files on almost every smali command and topic
    • Connection between smali code and public.xml to expose hex references
    • Have a helpful look at the java source of any smali file if needed
  • Edit M10 files with great usability
    • Support for all Sense versions (3.0, 3.5, 3.6 and 4.0)
    • Work with m10 files either with the dedicated "m10 project" or via the known "apk project"
    • Quickly analyze the contents with the M10-Structure viewer
    • Validate your m10 changes with the syntax checker
    • Unimportant m10 parts are greyed out or completely hidden
    • No support for m10 images yet
  • Communicate with your device with yet to be seen ease
    • Tight integration of most ADB commands
    • Push apks or jars easily to any place on your device
    • Remote import files to edit them with VTS
    • Debug your device with the integrated Logcat-Viewer
  • Enhance your workflow with useful additions
    • Easily create backups of your projects
    • Compare those backups against the current source base to track down and merge changes

You might have noticed that I pushed a few OTA updates, mainly resolving the issues with Windows XP.
VTS should run pretty fine now on all supported systems. :)
