Is 'android-sdk-build-tools' really needed as dependency now? Apktool brings it's own aapt binary, just in the case.

@qwertypoke Looks like BitBucket has some issues. I've reverted the last change. Guess we'll have to wait.

$ apktool
Error: Invalid or corrupt jarfile /usr/share/android-apktool/apktool.jar

Fixing the checksum made installing possible but there is something wrong in my installation.


Yes there is something wrong with my installation because:

There is currently something wrong with the downloading of apktool.jar from

The file that gets downloaded has size of 0 bytes.

I wonder if anybody would care to upload the correct file somewhere where I could download it, Please.

The sha256sum for apktool.jar in PKGBUILD does not match current version.

I agree; we don't need android-apktool-beta (which I maintain) anymore. I submitted a merge request.

They appear to be different at the moment.

We can delete android-apktool-beta though, doesn't serve any purpose.

Fixed upstream URL.

At one point these were 3 different versions. A few weeks (months?) ago, the git version was newer than the latest beta/rc binary. Obviously, the latest stable is older than either the git or latest binary. So that is how we got here.

To make things muddier, the next version is almost certainly going to be 2.0.0 gold, and 2.0.0rc3 is the first (and currently only) version to support Lollipop.

Personally, I think rc3 is close enough to gold to let it stay here, especially considering the lollipop support. That would let us deprecate both -beta and -git.
