  • This tool written on C programming language
  • Work on dedicated working folder, that allows feel comfortable, when you working.
  • Unzipping ROM's (everyone. CyanogenMod based, AOSP Based, MiUI and etc...)
  • Deodexing apk's, if you have .odex, you can quickly get rid of it.
  • Decompiling and compiling apk's. This step very important, if you want add own features (some animation, colors etc.)
  • Unpacking boot.img and ramdisk. If you want look at "insides" of boot.img and edit some parameters, you need it.
