Yes, i was also thinking that this would be a possibility, but how would
i go about sublicensing my changes as GPL in that case?

>>From what i understand i first need to add apache license header to all
source files (the original code i downloaded didn't specify license and
there was no license header anywhere), and then add GPL license header
in addition to it?

And the actual LICENSE files of course

It sounds like a hassle to use sublicensing.
