An apk is a zip file. Change the extension to .zip and you should be 
able to unzip it and look inside. The Media folder should have been 
transfered to an assets folder, and so the path will likely be different 
than it was when you did the import. The standalone builder should have 
accomodated that. You should see a Media folder inside the "assets" 
folder in the archive. If it isn't there, I'd report it.

I'm not sure if the app will run if you recreate the folder structure 
and then re-zip the archive but it's worth a try.
