K, Google came up with a new shitty idea to make sideloading difficult: uncompressed native libraries in the APK. The story here is that it will save space on the device if native libraries don’t have to be extracted, but can directly be mapped from inside the APK file. So now we are in the happy situation, that based on the SDK version (or more precisely: the version of the finsky app), we can get the very same app in three different variants:
- As a traditional, “contains everything and the kitchensink” APK.
- As an app bundle consisting of several APK modules
- As an app bundle consisting of several APK modules where the native code module contains uncompressed files.
Well, it’s not an immediate problem with Raccoon, but I should probably focus on fixing DummyDroid now.
