Update:
Update: Version 0.8 is now released!

Changelog:

- Auto detect/install ADB and Java (offline)

- Several bug fixes

visit http://www.coolestech.com/android-ethical-hacking-could-get-any-easier-apk-csigner/ to download the latest version!

Introduction:
I’ve recently joined Android Developers and I have published CoolesTech RSS Feed Reader. All went fine until I had to self-sign my app (personal private key), and that’s what was like a nightmare (although it’s relatively easy); test keys worked like a charm when self-certificates failed… But Google does not allow test certificates as you may have noticed.

I have tried signar 1.3 and signer 0.3 but after my app seemed signed I still got "application not installed.

So I have created my own tool, called "CSigner" that only runs in windows and comes with 2 versions (32-bit & 64-bit)

The only requirements are Java and windows...

I'm posting it here just in case someone goes through what I have been striving to achieve...


Goal:
Whether you are new to signing apps, or getting “application was not installed”, then you’ve finally reached the correct place! Along signing apks, apk CSigner is capable of compiling & decompiling apks serving the pupose of pure sources/resources replacement.

Note: This program is designed for situations where apk multitool fail to compile/decompile certain apps. It's not intended to replace other programs.

Is the source code available. I was thinking about a Linux port :)

Sent from my HTC Sensation using xda premium

Yes the source is available and that would be great!
The source is in the form of batch and java scripts depending on adb and openssl please pm me if interested...

Beautiful Work!

Mostafa,

Thank you so much for your work! I'm EXTREMELY new to Android development (as in just started today), and couldn't figure out how to sign apks. Just learning the adb commands is difficult enough. :p

If you ever need help in business telephone systems (AKA Key System Unit), send me a PM. Doesn't matter what manufacturer (ESI, Vodavi, Avaya, Inter-tel, Samsung, list goes on). If I can help, I will. :highfive:
