How to Singe APK After Compile

Install apksigner

apt install -y apksigner

Create certificate at the same folder you've compiled your modified APK

keytool -genkey -v -keystore keystore.jks -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity 10000

Enter A password (we will need it to singe the APK), enter any data you wish for the certificate information. At the end enter 'y' at the end to create the certificate.

Now we should have 2 files: your.apk, keystore.jks. The only step left is to singe the APK with new certificate.

apksigner sign --ks keystore.jks your.apk

When installing the APK you will be prompted with a warning of "unknown certificate" just hit Install.
