    the op said make a folder then do that download to change the path, but I solved it. I won't ask anymore questions unless I'm seriously stuck. Thanks though

    I'm making some progress (I think), but I still can't get this entire process to work. I managed to get everything unzipped and installed but then I had to follow the extra directions on page 4 of this thread, running apktool by hand from a cmd window. That actually worked and gave me a new folder named "C:\Program Files\APK Manager\other\Simple Kitchen Timer-9\". Inside there, I found the AndroidManifest.xml file I modified that according to steps 9-13 in the OP. So far so good.

    But then when I go back to run the script.bat again and try to do step 14 ("go back to the script and select option 11"), the script simply closes. I have Simple Kitchen Timer-9.apk saved in "C:\Program Files\APK Manager\place-apk-here-for-modding\". Again, the new directory that apktool created is in C:\Program Files\APK Manager\other\Simple Kitchen Timer-9\. The script.bat file is in C:\Program Files\APK Manager\.

    This is all in Windows XP. Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? My guess is I simply don't have the right files in the right places, but darned if I can figure out what. Thanks!

    [How to] edit apps for use with multi window.

    cd desktop\apk-multi-toolv1.0.10\apk-multi-tool\other
    List the contents of the folder by typing dir
    You should see the apk file you placed in this folder as well as the executables installed with you extracted the zip file.
    In this example I will use the name mms.apk, you of course will use the name of the apk file you're modifying. If the file name has spaces you will need to put the file name in double quotes. Example: "mms 2.apk"

    To decompile the apk type:
    apktool d -s --no-src mms.apk (mms is the file name used in this example).
    When the app has been decompiled it will look like the following:
    I: Copying raw classes.dex file...
    I: Loading resource table...
    I: Loaded.
    I: Decoding AndroidManifest.xml with resources...
    I: Loading resource table from file: C:\Users\js\apktool\framework\1.apk
    I: Loaded.
    I: Decoding file-resources...
    I: Decoding values */* XMLs...
    I: Done.
    I: Copying assets and libs...

    You will now have a folder with the named mms (mms is the apk file used in this example) inside "desktop\apk-multi-toolv1.0.10\apk-multi-tool\other".
    Now you can perform the same steps as above to modify the xml file.
    After saving the xml file, go back to the command line and recompile the apk by typing the following:
    apktool b mms (mms is just the example used here).

    If the app compiles successfully you will see the following:
    I: Copying classes.dex file...
    I: Checking whether resources has changed...
    I: Building resources...
    I: Building apk file...

    If the app does not recompile successfully this app cannot be used.

    After successfully compiling the app, you now have to sign the apk file in order to install it onto your device.

    To sign the apk file, type the following:

    java -jar SignApk.jar -w testkey.x509.pem testkey.pk8 "mms.apk" signed.mms.apk (mms is only the file name used in this example).

    You should now have a properly signed apk modified to work with multi-view.
    You can now transfer the signed_.apk file to your device to be installed. The previous version of the app must be uninstalled first.

    Thanks very much for some very clear directions. That all worked fine and I finally got a signed apk. Then I was able to get it to install OK on my Note 2, but now what? How do I move it into the Multi View sidebar?

    It should have gone there when you installed it. If not, hit edit in the bar and see if it's on the unused page.

    Default Re: Make Any App Work With Multi-View!!! No Root Needed

    Nope - I clicked Edit, but it's not there either. I rebooted but that didn't help either. It shows up on my Apps screen and it runs OK, but it's not in the Multiview bar.

    Here's what I did:

    C:\Program Files\APK Manager\other>apktool d -s --no-src "Simple Kitchen Timer-9
    .apk"
    Destination directory (C:\Program Files\APK Manager\other\Simple Kitchen Timer-9
    ) already exists. Use -f switch if you want to overwrite it.

    C:\Program Files\APK Manager\other>apktool d -s --no-src -f "Simple Kitchen Time
    r-9.apk"
    I: Copying raw classes.dex file...
    I: Loading resource table...
    I: Loaded.
    I: Decoding AndroidManifest.xml with resources...
    I: Loading resource table from file: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\apktool\fra
    mework\1.apk
    I: Loaded.
    I: Decoding file-resources...
    I: Decoding values */* XMLs...
    I: Done.
    I: Copying assets and libs...

    C:\Program Files\APK Manager\other>apktool b "Simple Kitchen Timer-9"
    I: Copying classes.dex file...
    I: Checking whether resources has changed...
    I: Building resources...
    I: Building apk file...

    C:\Program Files\APK Manager\other>java -jar SignApk.jar -w testkey.x509.pem tes
    tkey.pk8 "Simple Kitchen Timer-9.apk" "signed.Simple Kitchen Timer-9.apk"

    C:\Program Files\APK Manager\other>

    Decompile your signed apk and make sure you added all of the edits to the xml file.

    If you did, chalk it up to an oddity. I modified the android central app a while back.
    Everything worked but it would not show in the multi view bar, the same oddity you may be experiencing now.
  10. #135  

    Default Re: Make Any App Work With Multi-View!!! No Root Needed

    Yup - you got it! I decompiled the supposedly signed apk and as you suspected, the xml file was exactly the same as the original. However, I know for a fact that I did do all of the edits required (and I remembered to save the file). I also tried loading the signed version of Chrome that someone else else made onto my phone, and that one immediately showed up in my MultiView bar. So the problem is on the PC end. Where am I going wrong?

    Default Re: Make Any App Work With Multi-View!!! No Root Needed

    I can only assume you either a) did not save the file or b) you compiled the wrong folder.

    Default Re: Make Any App Work With Multi-View!!! No Root Needed

    Well I know I saved it, so maybe I am in fact somehow using the wrong path. I'll tell you though, right now my head is just spinning from all these different files and directories. I'm going to give it a rest and try again tomorrow. I do thank you though for all the help. I wouldn't be this far along without it. I'll let you know what I figure out.

    UPDATE:

    S U C C E S S !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Turns out that in the java step I needed to use the newly compiled apk that was created with the apktool b step. That file was located in C:\Program Files\APK Manager\other\Simple Kitchen Timer\dist\Simple Kitchen Timer.apk. I copied that file up two levels into the "other\" directory and ran the java command again. That gave me a signed apk file in the other\ directory. I installed that on the Note 2 and hey presto, we've got MultiView!

    Thank you SO MUCH!

    I tried this on Draw something( paid version) it decomplied /edited/recompiled/signed successfully... but after installed the game, it force closes when I run it.(the icon does show up in multi window bar) Does this mean this game is not capable of multi view ? also I couldnt recompile WeChat(free app) from google play store. does this mean this app is not compatible also ? Can one of you Pro take a shot at Wechat ? thanks in advance!

    I have draw something in multi-view,yet I'm rooted/stock rom. Honestly you all are going through a lot of work. Save yourself the time and root it and then install the multi-view zip from XDA. DroidXcon has a nice write up in the stickies. This is just a idea for you.

    Glad you have it working.
    Thanks for letting me know I skipped a step in the write up, it does place it in the dist folder.

    No problem. It's too bad the script didn't work for me because I really liked the retro 80's "pick a number" UI with the green on black font and the ASCII art. Took me back to the MS DOS 3.0 days, when you could actually still understand everything that was going on in your computer. But typing the command lines works fine, now that I finally know where the files are supposed to go :-)

    I actually got use to using the command line and stopped using the script, but I work with the Unix command line everyday, so it wasn't a big deal for me.

    Ok I'm following the original directions from this thread, got to the part where it says "16. After it is all done, select option 12" it's now asking me to type one of four inputs

    1. Create an unsigned apk using the keep folder option
    2. Create an unsigned apk
    3. Create an apk using the original Signature using the keep folder option
    4. Create an apk using the original Signature
    *Notice Options 3 and 4 are experimental use with care *Notice*

    Im thinking I need to sign it but which should I choose, I'm thinking between 3 and 4?

    Seems ok so far, everything is moving along, just don't know which option here is best to get it signed and finished. Btw I had to create a folder for that apk1 file on the C drive. Wonder if it's going to try to overright it at some point here.

    OPtion 2

    ----------------------------------------------------
    There is a pictured step by step on how to do this here: [How to] edit apps for use with multi window.
    Here is a video of how to as well:


    As a side note, I skipped step 4 (replace the 1.apk files as it was causing me more issues). So if you want to follow step 4, the folder appers AFTER you decomplie the apk before you edit the files ( it would be at 6:30 of my video; if I followed that step).
