Signing in debug mode

 I'm trying to use command line tools to develop an Android app. I'm
calling aapt as follows:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\aapt.exe"
package -f --debug-mode -M C:\MyProjects\MyAndroidProject
\AndroidManifest.xml -S C:\MyProjects\MyAndroidProject\res -I "C:
\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platforms
\android-9\android.jar" -F C:\MyProjects\MyAndroidProject\bin
\MyActivity-debug-unaligned.apk

I assume that, because I've specified --debug-mode, aapt will attach a
debug certificate, making my app runnable on an emulator. But I keep
getting the message
Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_NO_CERTIFICATES]

How can I diagnose the problem?

*Once the .apk is built, it must be signed with either a debug or release
key before it can be installed to a device.*

 The only thing the --debug-mode parameters is doing is inserting
"debuggable=true" in the manifest. (see the aapt help output)

Note that the command line you showed only packages the resources in
the apk. You'll need to add classes.dex manually to it, as well as any
other file you may need (java resources, native libraries).

Our command line build is complex, this is why we provide a full Ant
rules file. I encourage you to use it, or at a minimum to look at it
if you want to build your own build system.

 Thank you. Understanding what aapt does and doesn't do has solved my
problem.

Hi there,

I am introducing myself to Android development. My first intention is to
make a minute counter application.

I tried to use a PhoneStateListener but it does not provide enough
information to count the time of the outbound calls. The state of the phone
does not change when my outbound call is took. Some idea of how to make it ?

Thanks a lot.
