Android Development Kit (ADK) is alternatively best solution for android reverse engineering
This Application allows you to easily modify android apps, android ROMs, boot or recovery images very easily with easy-to-use environment on Windows(x86 or x64) platform.

Users can easily decompile, recompile application and could edit almost everything inside it.
One of the best tools Dexpatcher is also a part of ADK for modifying Application at source level using JAVA.
There is also some pre-customized templates, scripts for Android Recovery Zip or ROM Development project.
Users can also add their own templates with the help of Snippets manager and share across users.
There is also a big resource of online documentation for ADK here which will help users to guide the process if they messed up in a trouble.

The Application is not limited to these, users can download and install some external plugins for ADK and also for personal use.
Users can also submit your own plugin. If your plugin finds more useful for our users can get free license for ADK.

Also, ADK is not completely free it has a trial period of 7 days after that you have to buy license (optional, otherwise you can continue with demo mode which has certain features disabled) which is very reasonable (details here)
ADK is still in development process, so there may be some bugs or glitches which may fail to run some task.
If you find such, provide a detail information and report it to me here.
Additionally, since I am 17yrs old and has a lot of pressure for studies so there might be delayed in sending updates (grief).

Keep in mind that ADK is highly inspired from Virtuous Ten Studio(One of the best IDE ever), APK Studio; so you may find many similarity in them.

One of the main reason for building ADK is to spread the art of reverse engineering among newbies. I am in this field not for quite long but I've seen lot of peoples who are interested in porting ROM, modifying app, creating recovery flashable zips but they don't know from where to start, because of this they keep asking devs and become a cat of annoying clowder (due to these, some new users quit this field). I've looked upon these issue and found many peoples use kitchen for stuffs and keep recommending newbies to use this. Since kitchen are the best solution for ROM development as It comprise of all common task (like adding root, busybox to ROM and stuffs) with a very easy accessible option.

Many users are not familiar with IDE, and find trouble using them. After research I came to know some of the famous kitchens of all time is dsixda kitchen, ASSAYYED Kitchen(currently the most used). These people find them more useful since all the task, scripts, templates, etc. are in front of them; can be access with single option selection (no need to go deepdown and look for the stuffs).

Henceforth, I decided to create such type of kitchen giving it GUI look with very easy to use and non-complicated interface. All scripts and options are very easy to access, no need to create multiple windows for running tasks. I find it useful personally, the application runs on almost all Windows. For Windows XP some GUI animation will failed to load, otherwise everything will work fine.

help me answer some question bro

Got it... You must use 1.0.2.2 version. If this not works, an update will release tonight which will fix this issue

Edit: You said you cannot link your device, what that means? And on what project type you were working on?

Edit 2: Once you build your project, you use Android Device Manager to install or push apk to device https://androdevkit.wordpress.com/20...evice-manager/
