Hello all,

I've thrown together an app-pack that includes apps that i see are necessary and important to have on my phone. I was getting very frustrated with constantly having to reinstall my apps after flashing a new rom on. So i decided to create a batch file that will allow you to install back all your apps very easily.

I know there are things such as ADB file explorer, but i think that this is a much simpler way of doing it. Its also very easy for me to add apps that you guys feel needs to be included.

Let me know what you guys think.

App list
1. Root booter
2. Set cpu
3. Move cache for root users
4. Swapper
5. WiFi teather
6. Google places
7. Tmo visual voicemail
8. Shop savvy
9. Shazamm
10. Movies
11. Free dictionary
12. Ad free
13. App Manager
14. Taskiller
15. aTrackdog
16. Biz Card Reader
17. Keep Screen Lite
18. Pure Calander Lite

Change log:
v1.1
-added ability to remove apps that you don't want installed on the phone

v1.2
-corrected app pack to follow xda rules

v1.3
-added 3 new apps

v1.4
-added bizcardreader, keep screen lite and pure calander lite
-replaced apps with new updated versions from market

Np. At least I know someone's using it lol. If there are any apps that you think should be included let me know.

Xcuse my noobness but how do I get this to auto install?

I put it on the top level of my SD card and i copied the extracted folder but when i click on app-pack, it says *file type bat not found* which isnt true cuz the .bat file is very much in the folder!

You extract the folder to c:\android and then run the .bat file.


This is done via ADB. It is not something you put on your phone and run. It is run through windows

I'm looking for apps that every one uses. Not just ones that you find important.

Can you telkl me what is the exact command i ll have to run using adb?? I have adb setup and used it to install apk files, copied to and from using adb push and pull options. But how would i run a bat file using adb. Exact command will be helpful thanks

I think you should add

Astro File Manager
Android face Book App
Twidgit Lite (Or another twitter app)
Google Voice will be nice too
Weather widget

This will make things so much easier, not going through the market to reinstall all the apps

If you send me the .apks ill add them to the app pack. Its a big hassle to goto market to dload them just to get the .apk. and all you have to do is extract the XDA APP-PACK folder to c:\android (you should have adb stuff in there if you followed the directions for running adb) and then just double click the batch file. it will do the rest.

what would be of IMMENSE help to a lot of users is a 'how to' document with the pack

you will have some eternally grateful people around you :D

What do you mean a "how-to"? There is a read me file inside of the zip that says where you need to extract the folder too. Other then that its self explanatory.

but thats the point!

it's self explanatory to advanced users like you, not to the noobs like me

what im talking abt is a 'step 1 download the SDK / step 2 extract it to C:\' kinda thing

if you can just send this info to me and i can put it into a word document and send it back to you with text formatting and stuff so we can stick it into the .zip alongwith the files in there

Step 1. Extract zip to c:/android
Step 2. Run the .bat file


This is all based around the fact that you should have adb installed and running on your computer. If you dont, search the forums to find out how to do it.

Just curious...

If I install these apps this way, will they be listed under 'my downloads' in the market section, so I can see if they have been updated?
