It looks like it's possible now to make an ELF/DEX file for android like this.

ELF by @MazeGen

DEX by @MaoKo

But is it possible to make an APK for Android using FASM/FASMG?

Using ELF/DEX is not so user-friendly if we want to share it with other people, so only we can use that.

My decision of using ASM is because I really want to make a small and efficient Android app but it looks like it's not possible and we need to rely through inline and to the bloated sdk of Android.

An APK is just a ZIP archive that is signed. All steps except perhaps signing are possible using fasm.

Although if compression for the ZIP is desired, it might be a bad idea to use FASM for that due to FASM’s memory consumption when compile-time variables change their values.
