I believe that it’s been far easier for Android users to locate and install old versions that allowed you to set custom alert distances. No need for a hacked version.
It is my understanding that the Android app got locked several years ago so any old apk files for waze must be around the android 4.0 Era which is ancient by now. Am I wrong?

Previous posts in this thread suggest that 3.7.8 works up through Android 6. Also, the second download link in the very first post in this thread seems to still work. I’m not an Android user myself, but it seems that there are a couple of things like detaching it from an auto-update list that are almost necessities.

Maybe you could go to tweakbounty and get an Android version created, if running 3.7.8 on Android 5 or 6 isn’t an option for you?

its possible i suppose, but tweakbounty is generally an iOS subreddit (although maybe you run into some developers there who know how to code android). The dev who made this version of Waze for me already had past experience with it, having previously reverse engineered the app in order to figure out how to bypass the Waze servers that always check for altered config. That's the primary hurdle. It's easy to find and edit the config; it's another thing to actually be able to prevent waze from simply reverting the files (its a lot more complicated than a simple read-only hack). anyways, its possible that the same developer could apply whatever tricks he used for ios onto android. That said, him and i have spoken at length about his disdain for all things android. so... not sure if hes the one for the job lol. but i guess it cant hurt to ask. I can try to reach out to him if i remember. or you can search tweakbounty for the thread i made, and you can find him in there.. his name is 'alcantara'

Has anyone considered developing an Xposed module for customizations? It allows you to hook any method within the APK and modify it. Digging through the decompiled code right now, but my android development skills are very limited.

How are you going about doing that? Did you just open the apk with Notepad++?

I Dont know much about app development but have a little experience with c++ scientific python and Matlab. Id be happy to help

If you have an ecort, take a look at escargot. (Android APP) You can set a range ring that bypasses dazes limitations. Actually, you can run the app with any brand detector. I’ve used it with my R3, it doesn’t communicate with the R3... but warns you of LEO activity in the area. A larger area than daze if you select a bigger radius

You need to use jadx. skylot/jadx

The APK file is compiled bytecode, so a lot of variable and function names are gibberish, makes it a lot harder to modify something without the original source.
