 > In my experience, it is generally a lot smoother to do these kinds of
 file management activities before everything gets packaged into the APK.
 There are lots of little hacks in the final packaging steps to support
 zipaligning, zeroing out timestamps, v1 signatures and v2/v3 signatures,
 etc.  So by manipulating the APK, it'll make all those steps harder to
 deal with.

 compile or maybe as the first step of packaging.

 I agree this would be better. I tried using ndk.abiFilters at the firefox
 stage but the apk wasn't including any of the dependent native libraries
 from the aars. This will require more investigation as to why it wasn't
