Hi guys,
I see there is no noob-friendly tut for APK tool in our forum..So people like me get bored to read the commands...Here is one to make you familiar with a new tool AUTO APK TOOL (Its old but I don't see anyone using it)....

Its automated version of APK tool which makes your work very easy and No knowlege of Codes to decompile and cmd Commands are necessary.......




Well So here We start....

Code:
Pre-Requirements:

A PC :p
Auto ApkTool
Java JDK/JRE 32 bit

So here we get started...Get Auto apk tool from the link posted above by me...

Extract the package and copy it to Root of C drive like THIS:



Then copy your APK files to Auto apk tool>>Input_APK....




Now in the Auto apk tool folder open the Autoapktoolmain batch file...You don't need to open cmd and give commands...





There just take a look that all the options are automated for you right from ADB/Decompile-Recompile to FW dependencies....
Now press 6 i.e. option to Decompile...



You don't need to give commands Just drag the apk from Input_apk folder to cmd...No commands here too ...

Now you can see The decompiled apk in input_apk folder...MOD it as you want....





After Done Just open cmd again...Press 7 to recompile...The recompiled APK is generated in decompiled folder inside a new folder called dist...





Now you can see your app...If its system app don't sign it otherwise let the RE-compiled app remain as it is and Select "Sign APK or ZIP' in cmd...The signed apk is generated in the same dist folder...






I hope its really easy for anyone ....Any problems let me know...

it seems you are trying to decompile system app file!
For that you will have to install framework-res.apk from your phone
