[Q] Unable to re-compile (using autoapktool / apktool)
** I dont have enough posts yet so cannot start thread in the correct section, so posted it below here in general **
I have all the content ready to add to an app and been searching for the right template and came across an app that has the look and feel I want.
I used autoapktool2.0.0 and it dissasembles the app fine so you can access the xml and other files. I am also able to edit a test apk and recompile and sign it with the above software fine. It creates 2 different folders one build which has a created classes file and one called dist that has the completed recompiled apk
however, when i try one specific apk I am able to decompile it fine, but when it comes to recompiling it after making a tiny test edit it will not do it.
I creates the classes file fine but it does not recompile the whole source files into an apk, so the dist folder is not created.
Why will it not recompile the whole thing?, is there something I am doing wrong or is the thing protected?
can someone test it for me using same methods I done and see what their result is?
(no errors were given when recompiling, it acted as if it was complete but it was not, as no apk created)
