    I setup autosign and I keep getting errors, when trying to manually sign. Im not sure what is happening.
    Anyone have a pointer or 2 that has been resigning there edited apk's.
    trying this out so I dont have to pack so much into a theme. Some may not like the color I chose for say Facebook, Twitter, or myspace. So if I sign them they can install without pushing them manually Im told.

    This is all new to me took a minute or 2 setup the application but still dont see why its erroring when I try to resign things.

    Have you tried deleting the META-INF folder then resign? Are you using Stericsons tool? I set it up so it's in my registry, all I do is right click and the option to sign apk or zip shows up.

    Or try opening as an archive using 7zip.

    True, but If the OP is using the apktool to break down the apk, it decodes it so you can text edit among other things. It would then have to be resigned.

    I know this isn't quite what you are asking, but to theme a apk you don't need to resign it really

    Open the apk file with 7zip(or winrar) without extracting it. Copy your changed files into the proper locations.

    As long as you just edit the existing file and don't extract (and repack) you shouldn't need to resign the file

    got ti working

    Edit: just tried the files I resigned that didn't error on my incredible and they wont install. Facebook for one. I did push it manually just to make sure it works still and that way works :( so I guess resigning for me is a waste of time, or im still doing something wrong :(

    Thanks was my fault totally, had an extra . in the file didnt notice.
    Thanks for the info I been theming alot, just when I tried to make my first complete theme release most had issues I was told I put too many apk's in it. I dont know it worked for me on many roms but since so many had issues I think maybe this is why so im trying it out to see if this helps, that plus I can take some out of my theme and let them get them seperately.

    Thanks

    I released it as roms so far not as an addon :(
    but that way is working on BBv0.3-BBv0.4, SSv4.1 [going to work on 4.2 when I wake], UDv1.5, i'll try to get it working on 2.0 after that. My SuperTheme1.1b.
    Once I get it going on all these roms maybe i'll try to add more here and there.

    Wish I could figure out whats going on with this I followed every method I could find this is the first one that didn't error when resigning but still cant just install them.
