Customizing the ZIP file

In some cases, it can be advantageous to customize the contents of the phonegap folder and create your own ZIP file to upload. For example, you might want to add additional entries to the config.xml file or add/remove additional files. Some platforms may require such customization in order to successfully build as they are not supported directly by the Studio-produced ZIP file, such as Blackberry. Likewise, future enhancements and new features could be introduced that Studio is unaware of.

Whatever the cause, preparing a custom ZIP file is as simple as modifying the contents of the phonegap folder and re-zipping up the archive. Remember that any customizations to the phonegap folder will be lost when you re-run Studio's PhoneGap build process to update the project contents.
