In the search of the best Android build on HTC HD2, I need to try lot of different Android build. However, I face a problem that slows me down ~ download application from Android Market every time on new build. How to backup Android .apk file? I want to make a copy of the downloaded application locally. So that I don’t need to download them again and again using slow Internet connection.
How to copy Android .apk file?
- Install ES File Explorer from Android Market.
- Launch ES File Explorer.
- Bring up property view and select ‘Manager’.
- Select ‘App Manager’.
- Hold on the application that you want to backup until Operations window pop-up.
- Click on ‘Backup’.
- That’s all. You application will be copied to backups folder.
From now on, I don’t have to access Android Market to re-install back these backup applications. You can too.
