    I wanted to know how to go about modifying an existing apk file. Below is what I am doing.

    1. Copied the .apk file to my computer
    2. Used apk_manager to decompile the apk
    3. Made a small change in one of the xml files
    4. Used apk_manager to compile the apk and the sign it
    5. Sideload it using the Sideload Wonder Machine

    In this process do I need to uninstall the existing app before sideloading its modified version? Or just giving it a new name would work? Thanks.
