Hello Everyone,


I now work on PocketTool everyday and I plan on releasing updates every week.  It is being designed as an all-in-one package to install texture packs, skins, and mods. It does not require root. Simply download your favorite texture pack/skin and use PocketTool to install it. No computer or file browser required.


Pretty cool PocketTool tutorial found here (Outdated as of Mar 21, 2012):

Thanks for the feedback guys! A GUI is in the works as well with Texture Pack support.

An iOS version could be possible but it would be impossible for me to build because I currently do not have a Mac computer.

Actually, as far as I know, you still can make it for IOS with a pc. The only issue is that it's basically pointless to try if you don't have an IOS device yourself :P

Well I have looked into it but with a PC you cant distribute the app through the app store which in turn would require the iOS device to be jailbroken. I would prefer to have it distributed through the app store for non-jailbroken users.

What phone are you using? What version of Android?

Currently, It is working at the moment though I have to implement some error checking because the directory structure in the texture packs seem to differ from different texture makers. I will upload a working update shortly. Also, if you have any suggestions as to what you'd like to be able to do with this app, I'd love to hear what you guys want. I plan on adding an inventory editor in the near future

This application seems very interesting, it could save me having to use the whole autosign process and unziping the installer every time i need to check the progress of the texturepack portings.

I'll let you know how my phone handles the app (galaxy s II).

Edit: Tested the application and it works perfectly.

Great tool! But can you add in the settings (which doesn't seem to work for my Xperia Play) The abillity to remove the deinstalling part (I manage to get the game working without deleing)((And it's annoying to change all my options ll the time (((I have a lot of Tpacks))) ))
+1 for you good sir!!!
And how are you planning on making the inventory editor?

It does not require root and does not override any files. All the files are handled on the sdcard and all uninstalling/installing is done
through Android's PackageManager. What device are you using? What version of Android? What did you attempt to install into MCPE?

The Settings are not implemented yet. I will certainly add that as a feature soon. The inventory editor will access the level.dat of a chosen world and allow the user to type in the hex of the item they want or choose from a list of known item values. It will also be able to change any of the settings found in level.dat, such as spawn coordinates, time of day, etc..
