This tool is a part of ADK software, thread can be found here (For summary read Introduction part below). Links to download this program will be found at the end of this post. Usage info can be found in second thread.
Deodexing ROM is not so simple task since the recent changes in Android 9 introducing .vdex files. Thanks to anestisb for his vdexExtractor, now deodexing android 9.0 is not quite a difficult task. But hey, let me tell you not all APK, JAR can be deodexed as OEMs god knows adds what's so ever classpath in their vdex, odex, etc. to prevent it from converting to classes.dex
The tool requires build.prop file & app, priv-app, framework folder of either system or vendor partition. Browse it, check if it's supported by the tool. Hit Play button that's it. It may not take much time deodexing your ROM. The tool just process files and deodex them for you, it can be easier if you use an kitchen with it i.e first unpack ROM or decode system.img then run this tool on it. Well I'll recommend you to use ADK kitchen as it's currently made for that :P
What is ADK?
Well if I've to say, ADK (Android Development Kit) is a complete Windows based GUI application which allows you to edit Android apk files, ROM zips, boot or recovery images, Android Firmware and also to create TWRP/CWM flashable recovery zips easily. It's like a complete Android Kitchen with lots of mods, patches, scripts, templates, rich text editor, etc. like an IDE. For more info visit official thread here.
