I've got an example APK file, and I'd like to add it to an existing Android image. I've got the image that ships with the Android SDK as a reference, but I haven't found any tools which can unpack and edit it on Windows- the only scripts I've found only work on Unix, and the only thing you can find for any term with "Android image" in it is a hundred people trying to sell a cut-down Photoshop for Android devices. Any suggestions?

Try the term "rom kitchen"... – onik Mar 8 '12 at 21:02
@onik: The final hardware I'm using hasn't yet been decided, and it will certainly be a tablet, not a phone. – DeadMG Mar 8 '12 at 21:04
In all seriousness, use a virtual machine or get a Linux box. Building Android and modifying Android system/boot images is basically just unsupported on Windows. It will probably save you a lot of hassle. – eldarerathis Mar 8 '12 at 21:49
