Update: Paul O'Brien of Modaco has made a web based tool for you to quickly make a new apk to your own requirements without the need to compile and decompile yourself, it can be found here - http://www.modaco.com/topic/358494-l...i-window-tool/ (please pay attention to his last paragraph too!).

Dear all

Better laid out page with quick guide - http://lennyuk.co.uk/lennyuks-multi-...mod-for-n7100/

What it is:
This is my quick fix before a real fix comes at a later date to add more apps to the multi-scren mode. It is not perfect and only allows for apps I have listed below (and the ones that were already there).

This is just a simple xml mod, it is easy to do yourself if you know how to decompile and recompile framework-res.apk, I will not accept the credit for finding where in the xml it needs to be edited, I have just made the changes below, recompiled and made a .zip for you.

As a warnning if your planning on making your own edit, there is a general bug in the way this works (not confirmed but believed) that if you have more than 1 page full of apps in that "edit" screen the whole split-screen crashes.

So don't go adding too many apps at this point in time!

What it is not:
This is not an ideal solution to add all your apps, it is just a quick xml change to add the apps I have detailed below.

What does it add?
The apps I have added are as follows (by package name, if you don't understand package names then try to google it, it will probably tell you the name of the app, but its easy to work out in most cases):

Code:
In v1.2:
		<item>com.google.android.apps.authenticator2</item>
		<item>com.lastpass.lpandroid</item>
		<item>com.google.android.apps.plus</item>
		<item>com.quoord.tapatalkpro.activity</item>
		<item>com.adaptiveblue.GetGlue</item>
		<item>com.androirc</item>
		<item>bbc.iplayer.android</item>
		<item>com.gzero.tv</item>
		<item>com.dropbox.android</item>
		<item>dk.tacit.android.foldersync.full</item>
		<item>com.imdb.mobile</item>
		<item>se.footballaddicts.livescore</item>
		<item>com.android.vending</item>
		<item>com.google.android.music</item>
		<item>com.spotify.mobile.android.ui</item>
		<item>com.amazon.mp3</item>
		<item>com.amazon.venezia</item>
		<item>com.bskyb.android.skyplus</item>
		<item>com.ideashower.readitlater.pro</item>
		<item>com.levelup.touiteur</item>
		<item>com.speedsoftware.rootexplorer</item>

In v1.3:
<item>org.connectbot</item>
<item>com.handmark.tweetcaster.premium</item>
<item>com.google.android.apps.docs</item>
<item>com.whatsapp</item>
<item>jackpal.androidterm</item>
<item>de.shapeservices.implusfull</item>
<item>de.shapeservices.impluslite</item>
<item>com.quoord.tapatalkxda.activity</item>
<item>com.quoord.tapatalkxdapre.activity</item>
<item>kik.android</item>
<item>com.ebuddy.android</item>
<item>com.skype.raider</item>
Do not worry if you don't have some of these apps installed, they will just be ignored.

IT MIGHT LOG YOU OUT OF YOUR ACCOUNTS, THIS CANNOT BE AVOIDED, BUT YOU CAN JUST ADD THEM BACK

Install
1) NANDROID FIRST!! This way if something goes wrong, or you don't like my mod you can easily revert.

2) Flash in CWM (or other custom) recovery.

3) Boot and add back all your accounts!

Files

v1.3 - CLICK HERE
v1.2 - click here


Updates
I might update this with other apps requested if and only if it appears a real fix is taking too long.

I strongly advise you keep a close eye on Modaco or Paul O'Brien's twitter feed as he might have some interesting information on this subject soon.

IF YOU ARE AN APP DEVELOPER PLEASE READ THIS - http://www.modaco.com/page/news/_/an...your-apps-r823

Apps to be added (if I make an update!):
- Slices
- <item>com.metago.astro</item>
- <item>com.instagram.android</item>
- <item>com.phonezoo.android.streamzoo></item>
- <item>com.alensw.picfolder</item>
- uk.Amazon.mShop.android
- Shazam
- GoSMS
- Google Translate
- <item>com.infraware.polarisoffice4</item>
- WeChat messenger
- email (stock)
- calculator

Changelog
v1.3
- More apps added, see list above
v1.2
- initial release
- based on LJ1 (but should be fine on any stock based rom that has multi-screen feature)
- includes apps listed in section 1 above (future apps, if updated, will be split into separate sections in the list so its clear they were added later)

I didn't use a toolkit if you mean a pre-made script tool thing, I just used the latest apktool and a command prompt window.

Does that apktool also sign the apk after recompiling?
Do you have to copy the resource.asec thingy? (Been some time since I handled apktool)

the app is the same for every country as far as I know, it just detects where you account is registered when you login, so yes it should be fine.
