Sometime in mod guide.. we need to copy file/folder in original apk after modified... like androidmanifest.xml/classes.dex/etc.. so my question is when we need to copy it?

I only copy meta-inf and androidmanifest to the build folder (you need to compile the folder to get the build folder and then recompile again after placing files there) if im not resigning the apk

But in this guide forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2018688 the additional instruction said copy classes.dex from original unmodified apk and paste it in modified apk.. when this step is necessary?
