OK I tried installing it through apk manager. What I get (this time I did quick modification and selected option number 7 to zip, sign and install):

1    System apk
2    Regular apk
Please make your decision: 2

Everything is Ok
Nazwa 'java' nie jest rozpoznawana jako polecenie wewnętrzne lub zewnętrzne,
program wykonywalny lub plik wsadowy.
can't find 'place-apk-here-for-modding/repackaged-signed.apk' to install

****************************** Apk Manager *******************************
Polish message says (dunno how to translate it correctly) something like "java is not a command, exe or bat file".

edit: I also did every step again, now manually selecting "zip" and "sign" and the problem is when I'm trying to sign this apk. Then the polish message pops up. Is it my java? I don't know. I'm using for a long time and it is working well. My OS is windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I have java for 64 bit operating systems.

edit: OK I found out that somehow my java wasn't in path, so I added it, but still nothing..

another edit...: nevermind. I found the java.exe and dll manually and I was adding wrong path to... path . I'm going to try this one more time..

final edit: for .... sake! I made it! Gah. I'm so tired, I'm going to sleep. Good night (it's almost midnight here).

Just one more thing. Do you think it is possible to edit the arsc file which contains the language/texts? I would like to localise some apps for my own use.

Im not sure, try using option 9, which will use apktool to decompile the apk. You should be able to edit the xml's and other resources.

Hey dude

Thanks for the update, but there's just one thing. Maybe it's just me, but the new version cleans the history. After making any operation "clean" menu pops up. There's no way to scroll up and see if everything went fine or there was some error. Could you check on that? Thanks.

I mostly did that to keep it clean otherwise the menu comes to the bottom half of the screen and the top half has previous processes

Yea i could do that or create a log file. I think ill create a log file then, cool thnx for the tip.

Regardless lol, i put up a slightly updated apk manager with your request in it. Now you can toggle *output* on/off with option 17.

Since apktool handles .9.png files, shouldn't the png optimization tool now decompile with apktool, optpng, and then recompile the apk?
