    Re: [UTILITY] Android Utility - Discover and Modify Android

    Please follow these INSTRUCTIONS Carefully. The usefulness of AU depends on your attention of these instructions. Thank you.

    ### Installation ###

    *** MAC ***

    Prerequisite: JAVA (standard on Mac OS X)

    1. Download from Github.com link or direct link or mirror.
    2. Unpack the archive (tar.gx or zip) to your HOME folder.
    HOME folder is located in /Users/username. To determine HOME folder, open Terminal in Applications Drawer and type:
    open $HOME
    3. Place the unzipped folder in the finder window that opens.
    4. Rename the folder to "android-utility" - ATTENTION! CASE SENSITIVE (ie. Android-utility ≠ android-utility).
    5. Double check and make sure name of folder is "android-utility".
    6 From here, you have two options (A or B).

    # Option A
    Open in Finder the android-utility
    Look for the file "andutil"
    Double click on "andutil"
    A Terminal Window will open up with Welcome Screen (Which you will see only on initial install)
    Continue through the installation

    # Option B
    Open a Terminal Window
    Type these lines followed by ENTER key:
    cd $HOME/android-utility
    ./andutil
    Continue through the installation

    From now on, to run AU, you can either double click on the andutil icon, or simply type "andutil" in Terminal from any directory. AU adds necessary files to your PATH.
    *** Linux ***
    Prerequisite: JAVA

    If you have Java, continue. If not, run these commands (pressing ENTER key after each one) in Terminal to install Java:

    sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-bin sun-java6-jre
    sudo apt-get -f install
    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-bin sun-java6-jre

    1. Download from Github.com link or direct link or mirror.
    2. Unpack the archive (tar.gx or zip) to your HOME folder.
    HOME folder is located in /home/username. To determine HOME folder, open Terminal in Applications Drawer and type (for Gnome Environment):
    nautilus $HOME
    3. Place the unzipped folder in the window that opens.
    4. Rename the folder to "android-utility" - ATTENTION! CASE SENSITIVE (ie. Android-utility ≠ android-utility).
    5. Double check and make sure name of folder is "android-utility".
    6 From here, you have two options (A or B).

    # Option A
    Open in Finder the android-utility
    Look for the file "andutil"
    Double click on "andutil"
    A Terminal Window will open up with Welcome Screen (Which you will see only on initial install)
    Continue through the installation

    # Option B
    Open a Terminal Window
    Type these lines followed by ENTER key:
    cd $HOME/android-utility
    ./andutil
    Continue through the installation

    From now on, to run AU, you can either double click on the andutil icon, or simply type "andutil" in Terminal from any directory. AU adds necessary files to your PATH.
    *** Windows ***

    Coming Later.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. What if I get /usr/local/bin not a directory? ScreenShot
    Answer: Post #111 aka my Epiphany

    2. What if I get an error "Apk cannot be decoded"? ScreenShot
    Answer: Please be sure that your apk has no spaces in its name. Post #98

    3. Why is my new apk so much smaller than my original apk?
    Answer: Two reasons. 1. Apktool when it builds, it uses full compression. 2. The new apk has not been signed, so the signature files "META-INF" are not present.

    4. What can I use to edit xml files?
    Answer: Mac: TextEdit or TextWrangler. Linux: Gedit (my personal favorite). Windows: Notepad++

    5. Why won't my apk decompile?
    Answer: Well, multiple reasons. Let's start fresh.
    a. Have you installed proper "framework" files, ie framework-res.apk and com.htc.resources.apk? These go inside working-folder/framework-here/. Install via Option #1 in Apk re-engineering.
    b. Have you installed a new version of apktool? Sometimes that will resolve your issues.

    6. Why won't my apk recompile/build?
    Answer: Again, could be multiple reasons.
    a. Are you sure your framework files are installed?
    b. Your edits could just be bad/mistakes.
    c. Install a different version of "aapt", available in installau and the apk Re-engineering suite.

    7. I get the error: "apktool.yml does not exist".
    Answer: Please refer to questions 5 and 6. A file "apktool.yml" gets created that's used by apktool during the decode process. If that went wrong, then you won't be able to compile.

    8. AU tells me to check build_log for errors. But there is nothing there!
    Answer: Currently the build_log is funky. I will fix in the future. If it tells you to check log and nothing is there...then ignore it. There really wasn't an error. But if the log does exist, then you have an error.

    9. When will a PC Version exist?
    Answer: When I have time.

    10. When will you include latest apktool (v1.4.2)?
    Answer: AU Version 1.0.2 will include latest tools.

    11. When will smali/baksmali support be available?
    Answer: AU Version 1.0.2 will include latest tools.

    12. When will png optimization be available?
    Answer: AU Version 1.0.2 will include latest tools.

    13. Why cant't I sign my apk with test keys? They won't install!
    Answer: Using an archive manager, delete the ORIGINAL "META-INF" (aka the signature) and then sign.

    14. I get errors using Draw9Patch decompiler after using 9.png from a decompiled apk.
    Answer: Post 151

    15. What if I have a non-HTC Device, like Xperia or Sammy?
    Answer: Currently, support for those devices does not exist for the "Apk Re-Engineering", namely Option #1 Install Framework first. The tool is written to only look for "framework-res.apk" and "com.htc.resources.apk". Future versions will have support for more proprietary ROMs. More info on Post 134.

    More to come.

    Enjoy!
