[GUIDE] APKTool for Newbie & Noobs
Hi guys !
Bored to the death today, really. So I decided to make another guide.
So, here's APKTool Guide & SignAPK Guide for Newbies !
1. Download APKTool, you can download it here.
Also, download APKTool depencies for your OS :
2. Extract files you've download to the same folder.
For Linux, extract it to /usr/local/bin. Correct the permission by adding executable permission.
3. Now, open CMD (Command Prompt). Press Windows Key + R, type cmd.exe
For Linux, just open Terminal Emulator -.-
4. Change directory to where APKTool is placed. Type these :
cd apktool directory
for example : cd C:\apktool
For Linux, just type apktool
5. Now you can freely decompile APKs, BUT ! for System APK (like SystemUI), you have to install the framework.
Extract the framework-res.apk from your ROM, and type these :
apktool.exe if framework-res.apk
for Linux :
apktool if framework-res.apk
6. Now, enjoy decompiling APK. If you're done with modifying APK, type these :
Happy Modding !
apktool b apk name
for example :
apktool b SystemUI
