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

so you want to say that if copy meta-inf and androidmanifest to modded apk, we dont need sign apk.. that what you mean?

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?
