The Earth Defense Force is all that stands man between thousands of gigantic bugs, spaceships, and the end of the world in a realistic urban sprawl that is doomed for total destruction.

**PLEASE NOTE**

This is a raw, unmodified apk I pulled from my Docomo Lynx 3D phone.

To my knowledge the game was never released for sale on the Google Play store and was only available pre-installed on this rare phone which was only released in Japan (about 3 years ago).

It is an extremely rare game and it is near impossible to find any info about it. However it plays just like the Xbox 360 version only with more basic graphics.

Here is a video of someone playing it. It is in Japanese in the video but if you phone is set to English then you will see full English menus -

I have tried installing it on my Galaxy Note 2 but it refused to install. It may need to be cracked but that is byond my capabilities.

If anyone can get it working, or crack it to work on all devices then let me know and I will update this post with new links/info.**

Thanks for that :)

I'm just a little worried nobody will get it to work.

I have the odex file as well if that will help? Also, the file I linked too seems way to small (13mb) for a game like this. I'm sure there must be more hidden away somewhere on my phone but I'm not sure where to look.

.odex file won't be needed now but then tell me - have looked in Android/data or Android/obb folders to see if there's any other data folder?

Yes, I looked but I couldn't see anything.

I will keep looking though.

EDIT - Yeah there's nothing anywhere that I can see.

However I did look into the files in the apk. Seems like everything is actually in there, all the asset files, sounds etc. Maybe they did squeeze it all into a tiny apk?

If that is the case then there has to be a way to get it to run on our phones. Would it be worth playing with the build prop file? I could copy it from my Lynx 3D and upload it here if anyone is interested. It's getting late here and I've had too many beers :)

tried it in all my devices,HTC explorer,nexus 7,china powerVR tab,samsung galaxy W and the super old 2.2 motorola milestone...
got the same message: application not install

I'd even tried to copy the apk straight to system/app but it still didn't installed..:weightMPT:

maybe for 3D devices only?

I don't think so. It works fine as a 2D game when I turn off 3D mode. In fact it actually looks better as the 3D can be a bit nauseating.

It still wouldn't explain why the apk doesn't install. I mean, I would expect it to install at least even if it crashed on startup.

It sounds like it just needs to be de-odexed. Eliott please post the .odex file. If possible also post a copy of the phones /system folder though that probably wont be necessary.

Here you go - http://www71.zippyshare.com/v/42365080/file.html

I'm a bit busy at the moment, will dig out the system folder as well and post it when I get the chance.

Good luck, hope you can do it!

I think the odex file you sent me is corrupted, it has 0 bytes of data in it. How did you pull it from your phone? Did you use root explorer? Are you rooted?

A full dump of the /system folder would help alot.

Thanks for taking the time to upload this stuff.

I haven't rooted this phone because it is a difficult and dangerous process compared with other phones. The only instructions I can find are in Japanese and it seems that a number of people have bricked this device trying to do it. I don't have a problem with rooting, I rooted my Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy Note, but I will only try to root the Lynx 3D as a last resort. My son uses it for games now so it would be a shame for it to end up bricked.

I used Astro file manager to get into the system files, copied the apk and odex file over to my SD card then uploaded them on Zippyshare.

Looking now it seems like the odex file is 453kb but when I try to copy it to the SD card I get a file with 0kb. I'm not sure why.

I'm copying the system folder now. It's just over 500mb. Not sure if it will mess up the files like it did with the odex but I will upload what I can to Zippyshare again.

EDIT - Looks like the system folder loses about 200mb when I copy it over. The odex file for EDF is back at 0kb again. Looks like I will need to root to get it out properly.

Anyway, here is the system folder - http://www75.zippyshare.com/v/75589254/file.html

EDIT 2 - FFS, the Zippyshare link is showing as 0mb now. I will try uploading to a few other sites after work today.

It sounds like your gonna need root to get it out of there. I'm not gonna ask you to potentially brick your device just for a game. Thanks for trying as hard as you have. Dont worry about the system folder, if we can't get the .odex file it's a moot point.

The only other thing I can think of to tell you is to try pulling it via ADB, if you have the Android SDK installed.
