ALX to jar...
Does anyone know if you can take an ALX&COD files and convert them to a JAR (OTA) installation? I've researched it but only can find JAR/JAD to ALX. Please let me know. Thanks!
I'm not familiar with a way to do this? What exactly are you trying to do with the conversion?
That is the exact opposite of what the post creator asked. The question was is there a way to convert an alx file to a jar/jad file to load the cod module. NOT how to convert jar/jad to alx, which has been covered ad nauseam.

No horrible desktop installer trying to add/remove/backup/delete things you don't want it to and dimming out the checkboxes to make them required.
So, if one can convert .alx to .jar/.jad, the desktop installer is not needed for regular app updates and installations.
Since the .alx file is just telling it what .cod to load, theoretically, the .jar/.jad file should just do the same. I just don't understand the syntax for creating one or I'd do it by hand. Is there really no converter app to go in this direction though?
I have yet to see an app that is able to do this. I was curious why the OP needed this optional available. If it was to install something on his own device, then there are a lot of other ways to go about it.
