    Even with the newer 1.apk file in place, my recompile still fails.

    By the way, I was doing it without the script because with the script, after selecting option 9 the window closed, nothing happened.
    Running the script from the cmd prompt, after selecting option 9 it just went to a prompt, nothing happened.

    I think the problem some are having is with the omission of a few steps.


    1. download APK manager
    Downloads | APK Multi-Tool

    2. make a folder called apk manager on your desktop extract everything in the zip into that folder

    3. download this
    http://www.cvsquad.com/files/multiview/1.apk

    4. Replace the file at the following path with the one you just downloaded:
    C:\Users\(w/e your username is)\apktool\

    5.open the apkmanager folder that you previously extracted to your desktop

    6.drop the apk you want to modify into the folder called "place-apk-here-for-modding"
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this folder doesn't exist for some people because there is no step telling them to run the setup script.
    Also regarding the setup script, there are no instructions as to what parts need to be run, I'm specifically speaking of the framework portion, option 2.


    7.double click on the script file

    8.Select option 9
    wait for it to finish

    I don't believe you get that particular folder until you have decompiled an apk.
    I just tested it. I renamed my apktool folder to apktool2. I extracted the multiltool again, the apktool folder did not return, and I didn't expect it to.

    Next, using the command line, I went into the [other] folder in the multi-tool folder, and ran apktool d [filename].apk.
    That creates the apktool folder.

    I tried doing a few others. I can now get them to compile, but they won't install.
    The script isn't working for me, I'm doing it from the cmd.
    apktool d [filename].
    Edit the xml with the appropriate additions.
    apktool b [foldername] [filename].

    But it fails to install on my device.

    Are there flags I should be using for the apktool commands?

    I appreciate it.
    If it's easier for you, you could let us know why the script isn't working.
    I select option 9 and the window closes, it never places any files in the project folder or anywhere else.

    Droidxcon, that is nice of you my friend. Ultimately, based on what I know from these forums, Twitter and nba gametime are the only ones that i would use and actually have on my phone. Is there a ongoing list of what apps have been changed to work?

    You aren't the only ones that don't get it! The apk folder is non existent under my username. When I try to run option nine, the software simply closes and nothing happens. When I try to install framework it says it cannot be found. I changed my path to point to java, now I get an error about something being unexpected. Very confusing. My issues could stem from running windows 8, however. I am fairly literate with this stuff, having always used ADB to manually root my phones, but I just cannot get this thing to work. I would like to see hulu up and running on this, but I don't think I am going to get there!

    The script isn't working for me either, option 9 just closes the window.
    As far as the apktools folder, that will not show up until you have first decompiled an apk, which I had to do manually because the script isn't working for me.

    But we can't get by step 3 in the directions. . This is the problem we all have.. Replace the file at the following path with the one you just downloaded:
    C:\Users\(w/e your username is)\apktool\ Please read all these posts.

    I told you why you don't have the apktool folder.

    I don't believe you get that particular folder until you have decompiled an apk.
    I just tested it. I renamed my apktool folder to apktool2. I extracted the multiltool again, the apktool folder did not return, and I didn't expect it to.

    Next, using the command line, I went into the [other] folder in the multi-tool folder, and ran apktool d [filename].apk.
    That creates the apktool folder.

    I'm fumbling my way thru this too.

    I created a folder on my desktop named apk manager. I extracted the multi tool into that folder.
    You have extracted the files for the apk multi tool, right?

    Using windows explorer, find the apk file that you want to edit. Copy it into the sub folder "other" which is in the folder where you extracted the multi tool.

    From here on, I use the command line because the script isn't working for me.
    Hit the start button in your windows toolbar.
    Hit run. (Depending on your version of windows, you tap run then type cmd, or just type cmd in the box with the magnifying class, then hit enter.)

    Then you have to navigate to the folder where you extracted the multi tool.

    Now go into the "other" folder.

    Type apktool d filename.apk
    (Example: apktool d "dolphin browser.apk"
    If the file name has spaces, then you need to put ""

    After that you will have the apktool folder you're looking for.
