[HOW-TO] Setup/Use apktool

32 posts in this topic

I didn't install it like a normal apk.  I used root explorer to mount system, copied from my sd card and pasted it into the system/app folder, that rebooted the phone, then after it fully booted I went back and checked the permissions, changed the system back to read only and rebooted again. 

 

I will try what you suggested, though.  Thank you.

Gotcha, my bad. Replacing the two files should do the trick.

@RMarkwald. Did as you prescribed and all is working well. The errors were still present as i posted above in compiling the Mms.apk in apktool after I updated my sdk.  After compiling the Mms.apk I switched out the Android_Manifest.xml and added the META-INF from the old Mms.apk to the new and pushed it to system/app, changed permissions and rebooted. I am good to go now. Thanks again for your help.

Excellent!

 

Don't worry about the warnings.  If there truly is a problem, it'll stop building and not output an apk file, and it'll tell you what happened.
