So I’m not developing anything, I would like to reverse-engineer an existing app built this “electron” stuff, I don’t even know what it is, like I said I’m no developer, there doesn’t seem to be any applications for download it’s just a bunch of github API stuff?
Anyway I got this applications, there’s a binary file istrolid.exe which runs the package that is the actual app, in the form of app.asar. Should be standard for you guys.
I would like to make some changes to this app but
- There doesn’t seem to be any unpackers for the .asar archive thing.
- Making even slight changes to the file (parts that are just script in plain text) seems to break it, so there’s probably some kind of checksum stuff going on.
So what’s the diagnosis here? Is it intentionally designed to make it difficult to reverse engineer packaged apps? Or am I just missing some required tools that will make this easier?
