A simple toolkit inspired by some others, primary goal is to provide a seamless solution for reliable apk editing/optimizing.

This tool uses aapt rather than 7zip for packing. That provides much better reliability and assurance of conformance to Android file standards, as the cost of slightly larger files.

Contains:
- 7zip
- roptipng
- aapt
- apktool
- zipalign
- signapk

I've also made sure all the libraries/binaries are up to date.

Windows only, sorry.
I can look and see about porting to Mac/Linux though, to my knowledge I should be able to get binaries/source for each exe used.

40 downloads and no feedback?

Anyways, I'd like to encourage everyone to use ddms from the android sdk to check your boot errors when optimizing.
It helps alot, any apk related errors should always be addressed even if they seemingly work flawless.

I like that you have compiled all these things together. Shouldn't there also be a draw9patch.bat also for those who have to fix the things that noobs did? It is getting better these days but there are still those out there trying to take the easy way out.
