Re: repackaging android code-apk

Hey Milan,


If you have a look at our Unsupported App Permissions page you can see that all of your uses-permissions are not supported. DELETE_PACKAGES, INSTALL_PACKAGES and FORCE_BACK are unlikely to have a detrimental affect on application functionality, but PERSISTANT_ACTIVITY may.


"uses package: com.google.android.maps:impact=3" is informing you that within your application you are using Google Maps, which is also unsupported. Visit our Mapping Support page for the workaround.


Hope this helps!
