For though who do not know I have been on medical leave on short term disability which means my paychecks have been cut in half due to a spinal injury which I go seen the spinal surgeon august 6th. I been out on medical leave since the last week of may. On top of this my wife's mother passed away June 17th. She did not have life insurance so me and my wife have to pay out of pocket and some how have to come up with 4 grand plus car payment and utilities by the end of this month which two grand of this is so we can pay so we can claim her ashes. Plus I lost my other two jobs because I can't work or else I would not be worried but because my main job pay is only half of what it is normally and the income of the other two jibs are completely gone that leaves my wife's income which is only around 800-900a month I was bringing in around the same thing with all my jobs because my main job was where my health insurance came out which is 1200 a month for me my wife and son and my mother n law was paying 900 a month as well but now her passing away we are trying to disperly get by until I can go back to work. It would not so bad if we did not have to pay the 2 grand to pay for the funeral but because of that we are at a loss to what to do

Updated APKTOOL.JAR to 1.4.9
Added Custom AAPT that was built to work with JELLY BEAN
Fixed issues with setup
Made a few changes to the setup bat to fix alignment size and other misc issues
Did some changes to see if I can fix the issue with The keep option to work with none system applications.
Trying to get batch optionmize to work
Replacing odt with a actual manual in html
Fixed Bug with KEEP Folder not exstracting for None System Applicaitons
Tweaked how the Signed and Unsigned files are compiled adding a small underscore between the recompiled file and the added prefix added by the scripts
Tweaked the option 11 for non system apks
I added the option to allow you to transfer the old key file over to the apk in case you did minor changes so be careful to test the APK files as some will need you to pick the unsigned option depending on how drastic the changes you made and forcing you to have to resign them
Renamed recompiled system files
Renamed the unsigned_ to signed_System_ since the system file changes the signature files are transfered since they are actually signed already instead of the misconception that has been going on for a while
I have written a new android APPLICATION called APK Multi-Tools Mobile.
Which can be downloaded off the GOOGLE PLAY STORE:
Official news and updates for APK Multi-Tools official WEBSITE as well as for APK Multi-Tools ANDROID Development
This is a application That is tied Directly to my Blog for new and updates to my development of my applications as well as the development of the APK Multi-Tools Applications for editing apk files
Removed the need to have the Android SDK Installed
Fixed Issue with the KEEP FOLDER Being Broken
Set Default Heap to 512MB
Update Version to APK Multi-Tools 1.0.6
Fixed Error Message for LOG Number to the Correct Number
Fixed Error Message for APK Project number
After working on improving APK MULTI-Tools I came to the conclusion that the Current Application GUI AND API is Flawed.
I Have been working on rewriting APK Multi-Tools from the ground up again Removing the requirement of having the SDK installed and installed inside anymore.
As too many users could not understand that they needed to install it inside the official Android SDK or many users did not want to install this third party tool into the SDK out of fear that something might go wrong.
This New Approach changes the ball game of the application and also takes it to the next level as I am adding in many new features and fixing a mass amount of bugs in the application.
There is no ETA on when I will have the Finished product as Right now I am still working on the Design of the application GUI.
I will continue to support the current APK Multi-tool and also make minor updates to it fixing any reported bugs while I work on it replacement but I will not be adding anymore new features to it as this new application will be completely different from what it is currently able to do.
