Not sure if this will help to see what I did wrong. I attached the AndroidManifest.XML file (Just need to change the extension from .doc to .xml as thats the only way I could upload it here).

Thank you again for your help!!

Sorry if it's a problem to resurrect this thread but ... I did get this to work for me with netflix via the cmd line instructions. I first tried the multi tool script and that ended up ... 'breaking' somehow when I tried to use it on the netflix app (it has a space in the apk name and I didn't know) so now the script just insta-closes when I hit the number 9 to decompile.

Anyways, happy that netflix is working but I really REALLY wanted to get google+ to work and I haven't been able to. Has anyone gotten google+ to work in multiview at all?

FYI, the errors I'm getting look like this:
C:\APK-Multi-Tool\other\Google+_3.6.1.44747389\res\values\public.xml:2848: error

Type apktool b "Quick ICS Browser_1.1.8" instead. All I did was remove the .apk part. That worked for me when I was doing this on the netflix app.

Thanks for the write up. K9 and Netflix worked fine. Android Central installed but wouldn't show up on multi view. I can open Android Central, then open another app in multi view and it works that way. Perhaps I did something wrong?
