Android Customization Suite 1.2.3
This is a program to complement your ROM. It is able to produce a CWM flashable zip with apps your ROM might be missing (T-Mob ones, launchers, utilities, etc). It also has other tools available for you. It can produce an empty flashable zip for you (read more about it here). And now, it has "repositories." Developers can upkeep their own repos with whatever files they wish. Roms, themes, mods, etc.

Screenshots


(forgot to change the version # in these screenies, it's 1.1 )


Older Screenshots:

1.0
Repo Tab 0.999
Repo Tab
Utilities Tab
Launchers & Misc Tab
Vibrant Apps Tab
System Tab


Instructions
  1. Download. Note: you must have Java installed to run this app
  2. WHILE YOU ARE DOWNLOADING MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP
  3. Unzip the folder. Please keep it intact. Moving files around in there will probably break the functionality.
  4. Run ACS.jar.
  5. Choose desired apps.
  6. Wiping Dalvik cache is recommended, but it will take you about 5 minutes to boot
  7. Copy flash.zip to your internal sd card
  8. Flash with CWM

Linux users: if you are running Linux I advise you to use the run.sh file to run the program, otherwise it may use your home directory to store files
Mac users: you need to have java 1.6 installed for this to work. i tested this on a friend's mac (running 10.5.8 & java 1.5) and it wasn't working. also i was not able to update her java to 1.6 either. so i'm assuming you need to have snow leopard installed for this to work...

Devs:
Check out this reference guide for more info on setting up a repo list. Feel free to contact me for any clarification. It's really not hard to do it, just have to understand how the app works a little. The guide should give insight and instruction. Contact me to add your repo to the list.

Options Note
If you want to change the location of system apps, please make your selections first THEN change the location

--any devs, feel free to contact me to add a section for your rom/mods/whatever
--the "repo" is maintained by you and is updated automatically when you update it, no need to recompile the app
-options tab
--new option to specify where you'd like to store apps that would originally go in /system/app currently may not work, need some script help from a dev to fix this D:
-download percent for convenience and downloading large files
-did i mention there's a repo?

v0.7 Beta

-TouchWiz Launcher Widgets will not be added along with the launcher
-added progress bar (along with rewriting some code to make it more efficient)
-added a rename box, you can now name your .zip whatever you like
-added more tmobile bloat (sigh)
-the application will not recognize APKs and files outside of itself, so for instance if you have an APK that you want to add just put it in the corresponding folders. 
-- for instance my VCK.jar is in folder /vck/, i want to add hi.apk. I could move it to /vck/data/app/hi.apk and when you click generate zip, the program should include it. please contact me if this is unclear or you have questions, this is only a minor feature :)

-Launchers & Misc tab should work

-Misc Tab works now (minus GB keyboard, didn't work for me for some reason)

v0.1 ALPHA
-Initial Release
Current Known Bugs
-Please report any bugs you may have!
-If you do encounter a bug, restarting the program and trying again may help.

Sounds awesome, I know a lot of people will find that very useful. Great job so far! My only concern is will you be releasing a new version every time the apps are updated? Or do you intend to have it download the latest versions automatically once you turn it into a client and host the actual files online?

If this happens, it would be extremely easy to update to newer versions. But as the program works right now, it's pretty basic, so yes it would have to be downloaded again.

Also I'm pretty sure I lack the skill to program it to download the files. So like I said. Maybe later

No worries man, that still sounds like a great tool. I honestly wouldn't mind downloading every now and then, I was just curious. I still have to update half the applications on my computer manually, so it doesn't bother me. Thanks for your contribution, it's years beyond anything I could ever pull off, web server or no!

I'm finishing up some things and going to try flashing a test in a bit.

If I can get it to work I will post the initial release later today. Only the Utilities tab and the Mms tab will be working though.

I've gotta figure out which Apks go with what for the actual bloat
