How to mod an APK and install it??

5 posts in this topic

I've been tinkering with a tool called APK Edit and apktool.jar both can import / export files inside APK archives.

This can be useful for changing application resources and security permissions thus reducing storage requirements.

While I had no difficulty rebuilding APK files they never install even if I rebuild the same APK with no content chances.

What am I doing wrong, is there any work around??

I'm sure this is possible since I have the new YouTube application (hacked and modded) running on my Android 2.1 handset.

Yes the problem was unsigned APKs it would appear that neither of my tools supported this.

Anyway I did some searching today and found a tool to correct this called signapk.jar

Not sure who wrote signapk.jar but needless to say it does the trick. :)
