Also it makes working with app easier because of project-like files structure and automation of some repetitive tasks like building apk, etc.

It is NOT intended for piracy and other non-legal uses. It could be used for localizing, adding some features or support for custom platforms and other GOOD purposes. Just try to be fair with authors of an app, that you use and probably like.

Features:

  • decoding resources to nearly original form
  • smali debugging: SmaliDebugging
  • helping with some repetitive tasks

Links:

Thread Guidelines
  1. If you don't know the following terms (aapt, apk, java) - then please don't post in this thread.
  2. If you didn't install frameworks (see FrameworkFiles) - then do that first before asking.
  3. If you want to engage in developer discussions - then post here.
  4. If you want to thank someone or express gratitude - sure why not post here.
  5. If your building from source - do not post those snapshot builds in this thread as we mix builds and makes users confused.
  6. If you believe you've found a bug, I'd prefer you post here: Bug List - but I won't be mad if you post it in this thread.
  7. If you send me a PM about Apktool support, I will ignore it.
  8. If you post any stacktraces, error logs or console output. Use Ubuntu Paste or Pastebin. Don't clutter our thread with 200 line posts.
  9. If you need support. Search this thread. If no luck, post your problem, but please include either an apk / output / log.

Thanks for posting this, great to see someone carrying on brut.all's awesome work!

Sadly, still won't play nicely with some HTC One apks, but I know that's HTC's fault not yours

Look forward to seeing what you've got coming up...

EDIT: Donation sent!

Good work!!!
I started testing and i still have problems with framework-miui-res, any tip?
I think the errors are those about change ex: <id to <item type="id"
Isn't that fixed in this version?

NOTE: If you don't what this kind of questions here, just say it np.

Yeah that should be fixed. The only times it seemed to fail is when the value of that item was @null or null. Which I hardcoded a fix in for. Send me that APK.

Here is the zip with both framework-res and framework-miui-res
To compile framework-res i just need to fix that stuff about %d %d to %1$d %2$d right?
But in framework-miui-res it is saying that item stuff problem.

Try these: http://miui.connortumbleson.com/other/jf/

Take the smali/baksmali that end in dev-jar-with-dependencies-small.jar

It will be w/ dependencies, but then proguard removes the bloat.

I tried the not small version and got the same. Will try that now.

There is some new smali/baksmali in dev that will be ready soon. Are the errors about magic values? Or opCodes? or regCount?
