What Is It?
Aroma App Package Creator is an application for those who flash new rom's often and want an easy way to create a flashable zip to reinstall apps. This utilizes Aroma Installer for more customization, allowing you to choose which apps to be installed instead of installing all of them. I made this tool for myself after seeing strawmetal's Flashaholic Essential Packs and wanted a way to produce the same results without editing multiple config files for each "pack" I make. I hope everyone else will find it useful as well



How To Use: Click Steps For Screenshot
1) Download the aroma-app-package-creator.jnlp file and run by double clicking it
2) Click the + button under the Group Names list to create a new group

3) Add an app to a group by selecting the desired group, then click the + under the Apps list

5) Flash your zip like any other in recovery




Downloads
aroma-app-package-creator.jnlp


Thanks To:

amarullz - For creating Aroma Installer
strawmetal - For the Flashaholic Essential Packs

Q&A
Q: How will updates be distributed?
A: Every time you run Aroma App Package Creator it checks the server for an update. If there is a new version it will be downloaded automatically.

Q: Everything seems to work, but when I reboot none of the apps have been installed. What's going on?
A: Try downloading a zip that utilizes Aroma Installer for your device (such as a rom or theme) and pull the update-binary-installer from it and put it into the zip created with the Aroma App Package Creator.

Q: The above didn't work...Now What?
A: Sign the zip and try again. You can find information on how to do so on google, or use this application: http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...apks-and-zips/

Please post any bugs/errors so they can be fixed

Okay, so this is giving me a flashable zip that installs apps at /data/app. What about /system?
And files other than apk files will be awesome.

Thanks for your good work.

This looks very cool
Will it work on a rooted phone with stock recovery (In my case SGS2) or just CWM?
