    question, so if you extract an apk file on the computer, whats the compression ratio to make it a apk file again? if I just extract a apk file, the try to make it a apk file again, its normaly larger then the original with out changing anything. so im guessing my compression ratio is wrong.

    Do not compress, mount your droid and drop it into the download file on your sd card, unmount and open from there and download on to your phone from there using a file manager like astro

    When I pull an .apk on mine and make changes to it I select all the files use 7zip with the compression set for "store" and just save it as the original whatever.apk and push it back onto the phone.
