Tired of Repacking APKs One By One? Try This…

Our devs put a tremendous amount of time and effort to get all the goodies that we enjoy daily in our devices. Most of these would not be possible without hours upon hours of fiddling and messing with hundreds of files, apps, and everything that may go inside a Rom. Luckily, there are people who also contribute tremendously for the dev’s sake (and sanity). XDA member omniwolf decided to take an approach to repackaging the apks before cooking a Rom. This is a tedious process that must be done one by one, and by hand. So, the dev came up with a script to do the packaging for him. After that, he decided to expand the concept into being able to process multiple apks at once. Needless to say that for those chefs who still like to do their cooking by hand, this may prove to be an invaluable tool, particularly for those with families and jobs that may require their time.

If you are a chef and find this useful, please leave some feedback for the dev.

I was speaking to baadnwz a couple of weeks ago and i asked him which script he used to properly pack all the APKs in his ROM. He told me he used no script, just repacked the APKs he thought were most relevant.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
