APKTool For Android!
OP Updated with proper instructions. Do not forget to follow the same.
Due to some problems using the latest version, I'm uploading the previous version in the Downloads, take a look.
I am here to share an Awesome Utility for our Great Themers who can now edit .apk files on the device itself!
This is the APKTool which can run on android itself!
Some features like:
- Decompile dex files
- Decompile apk
- Sign Apk
- Make Odex
- Extracting META-INF
- Creating ROM Dump of current Rom
Are available in this app!
It works quiet good on my XSola, but I am sure It will run smoothly on devices with good amount of RAM!
Here are few previews of the app:
- Download apktool4.4_armhf.zip (recommended version) ( ~50MB ).
- Extract the zip to your preferred location.
- Install apktool.apk (Or similar name) from the zip file.
- Open the App, Navigate to the folder you have extracted the zip, long press it and select set as apktool data folder.
- Now navigate to /system/framework -> Tap on framework-res.apk -> Select 'import as framework' (This will be imported as framework 1)
-Tap on SemcGenericResUxp.apk and again select 'import as framework' (This will be imported as framework 2)
The tool extracts the app to the folder wherever the app is! So please do not extract any app directly through /system folder!
ENJOY THE REST!
