2. Edit AndroidManifest.xml
3. Recompile
4. Drag and replace AndroidManifest.xml from recompiled version into original

Unfortunately, the application doesn't show up on the device. I've been using apktool, but also tried apk manager with signing and all. I don't know how to fix the problem, which I assume is caused by the signature of the APK.

Will your utility make it easier for me to edit this file?
I believe it will be easier for you. In the decompile process AU will ask if you would like to extract original META INF. Once you're done Modding what you want to do, drag the Meta INF into the new apk. Everything is organized and easily understood once you use it. But before you get a Mac....

What are you changing in the manifest? It could very well be your edit doesn't work. Please give more information

Looks like a great tool. Can't wait to see the other elements included.

On Linux using apk compression, it isn't removing the apk from the "original_apps" folder. Looks like it performs the rm command but leaves off the file extension so it can't find the file to remove.

EDIT: I get this between each file.
Code:
rm: cannot remove '/home/tmartin/android-utility/working-folder/mod-here-multi/original_apps/HtcProfileWidget': No such file or directory
HtcProfileWidget.apk decompressed
Decompressing HtcRingtoneWidget.apk
/home/tmartin/android-utility/working-folder/mod-here-multi/original_apps/HtcRingtoneWidget: No such file or directory
EDIT #2: Looks like it made ever file 24.2mb & unreadable??

Arg! Just got to work so I can't fix. I was afraid that one would give errors. Works on Mac but I didn't test in Linux. I will fix later. Sorry about that.

But big thanks for the feedback.

It happens, no rush. I'm just testing things out. I'll let you know if I find anything else.
