What Is It?
Aroma App Package Creator is an application for those who flash new rom's often and want an easy way to create a flashable zip to reinstall apps. This utilizes Aroma Installer for more customization, allowing you to choose which apps to be installed instead of installing all of them. I made this tool for myself after seeing strawmetal's Flashaholic Essential Packs and wanted a way to produce the same results without editing multiple config files for each "pack" I make. I hope everyone else will find it useful as well

How To Use: Click Steps For Screenshot
1) Download the aroma-app-package-creator.jnlp file and run by double clicking it
2) Click the + button under the Group Names list to create a new group

3) Add an app to a group by selecting the desired group, then click the + under the Apps list

5) Flash your zip like any other in recovery


Thanks To:

amarullz - For creating Aroma Installer
strawmetal - For the Flashaholic Essential Packs

Q: How will updates be distributed?
A: Every time you run Aroma App Package Creator it checks the server for an update. If there is a new version it will be downloaded automatically.

Q: Everything seems to work, but when I reboot none of the apps have been installed. What's going on?
A: Try downloading a zip that utilizes Aroma Installer for your device (such as a rom or theme) and pull the update-binary-installer from it and put it into the zip created with the Aroma App Package Creator.

Q: The above didn't work...Now What?
A: Sign the zip and try again. You can find information on how to do so on google, or use this application:

Please post any bugs/errors so they can be fixed

Okay, so this is giving me a flashable zip that installs apps at /data/app. What about /system?
And files other than apk files will be awesome.

Thanks for your good work.

This looks very cool
Will it work on a rooted phone with stock recovery (In my case SGS2) or just CWM?

Crappy resolution, but here's how it works on an S3

For the S3 you need to use the "Yes/alternate" method for the touch calibration... also the colors are totally off but it's still readable and usable. Just has a blue tint to it lol.

Or just use my values:

119490.00, 2030.00, -619140.00, -840.00, 116060.00, 228210.00, 117939.75, 20
This is on the Rogers I747M S3. (Should be the same for AT&T).
