Ubuntu / Linux auto sign tool?
I have been toying with the idea of making a theme. Sounds like fun and the How To's here are really thorough (by the way, I appreciate that, those things must have been quite the labors of love).
As you can tell from the thread title, my OS of choice is obviously Ubuntu. The autosign tool sounds pretty convenient, but I notice it is for Windows. I've searched a bit, but honestly I am getting tired of thumbing through thread after thread looking for the answer and was hoping for a friendly nudge in the right direction.
Anyway, long way around to these questions:
1, when I re-sign an apk, do I use test-keys, do I create my own key, or do is that something JDK will create for me to use?
2, I don't want to create a theme that makes people need to wipe before switching, the template is up to date on the How To thread? Are there templates for JF ADP1.1, and maybe even RC8 as well? Or was there a thread I could read about taking the necessary parts of JF's update and building a template of mine own from that?
3, To actually resign an apk, you have to edit some hex code right? If there truly is NO tool for Linux, I could use some directions on where to find how to manually sign a file. Then hopefully I can find / convert / create a tool in Linux to handle the dirty work for me.
I guess this is what I get for coming in so late into the game.
Also, I am curious if anyone else creates themes in anything other than Windows... any *nix creators out there?
