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

Oh this may well be excellent. I've got a 3rd-party Market app which desperately needs sensor orientation disabled (good ol' FC on rotate). Will check it out!

Ok, now I see, that it still doesn't work for many apps. But you can try your luck ;)
