Add new permission to manifest

Hello, I am trying to open an .apk file stored in ASD with the activity starter. It works with the companion but the activity is immediately canceled with the compiled app. So I tried to decompile the app’s apk with apktool to add

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES" />

to the manifest. Impossible to recompile the apk, with the correct signature… There used to be an extension that allowed adding lines to the manifest, but I can’t find it. So I’m looking for a solution to add a line to my app’s manifest.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Try this :-


It will not work by asking permission manually. It needs to be declared in the Manifest.

No need to decompile the Apk, Just add below extension in your project then the permission will get added in the Manifest.

Use “MT Manager” instead of ApkTool.
If you don’t know how to do it, Watch this video.

There is a video upload size limit in the Kodular community. So I uploaded it to YouTube.

Thank you very much for your answer, I will try!
