[TOOL] [Feb 9, 2011] Android Customization Suite 1.2.3
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.
(forgot to change the version # in these screenies, it's 1.1
Repo Tab 0.999
Launchers & Misc Tab
Vibrant Apps Tab
- Download. Note: you must have Java installed to run this app
- WHILE YOU ARE DOWNLOADING MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP
- Unzip the folder. Please keep it intact. Moving files around in there will probably break the functionality.
- Run ACS.jar.
- Choose desired apps.
- Wiping Dalvik cache is recommended, but it will take you about 5 minutes to boot
- Copy flash.zip to your internal sd card
- Flash with CWM
: 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
: 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...
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.
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
--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?
-couple GUI changes to make it prettier

-icon is missing, after 8 hours of working on 0.5 i'm not going to fix it right now
-file size down to less than 150k :cool:
-KERNELS & MODEMS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS UPDATE, SORRY :)
-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 :)

-Please report any bugs you may have!
-If you do encounter a bug, restarting the program and trying again may help.
