*Some of this is a rant to explain that I have done PLENTY of searching, if you can take a look at the file and see if you know what I'm doing wrong it is appreciated.
Before I asked this I have searched everything I could find on doing this- I made sure any hidden osx files in the directory were deleted before compressing, made changes with gedit that should maintain the file type, I signed the file with dxixda's kitchen(I do get an error: ls: illegal option -- X - usage: ls [-ABCFGHLOPRSTUWabcdefghiklmnopqrstuwx1] [file ...] but everything I've found makes me think this shouldn't be a problem- and if it is I don't even know what is wrong with the kitchen or my file).
As I said, this is a last resort, I've also had problems deodexing and it seems like everything else I've tried to do on my mac lately.. GOING CRAZY. If I don't figure out what keeps screwing things up I'm gonna do a complete new install of OSX- I'm thinking maybe there is something wrong..
Thanks in advance if anyone can point out what I'm doing wrong, I am beyond frustrated! In the end I am trying to develop a zip to remove sense and htc apps that can be replaced by aosp ics apps, and maybe a tiny bit of theming if I integrate all of this into a rom- so I'm dying that i can't even get the first part of this accomplished(as I have in the past!)
