    1. Hi , You have to just open the .apk file ( which you just recompiled ) and at the same time open the apk file ( which was normal and was untouched ) copy all the content if the recompiled .apk file to orignal untouched apk file !

  14. Hi. I know you have gotten this question already, but the answer is not clear. You sy 'copy content into the original apk', but you can't just open an apk and copy stuff into it, or you wouldn't need apktool at all. Can you explain exactly what that means? Thanks
