Got it, already fixed the bug ;)
Redownload "APK Tools.zip", delete existing "tools" folder, then execute "Launcher.exe".

hai @kermage.. Glad to see apk tool thread with up to date post from the maker..
but lil bit problem occuring to me..
how to operate this tool..
I cant even installing framework. It says error. Whereas "APK tools" folder have been moved to C:/Windows/ directory.. (Before I move it into windows dir, the launcher even continously says "APK files folder EMPTY, although obviously I have put some files there)

I've try the latest apktool 2.0.0 beta9
It works with apk that need multiple dependencies (in my case, Xperia SP FW .201, using framework-res.apk & semcgenericuxpres.apk)
it suceed to decompile. But I get an error "PathNotFound apktool.yml" while recompile..

thanks in advance

how to operate this tool..
  1. Extract the downloaded ZIP file anywhere you want.
  2. Execute the Launcher.exe. (necessary files and folders will be installed automatically.)
  3. Select a task by entering the option number. Play around. ;)

I cant even installing framework. It says error. Whereas "APK tools" folder have been moved to C:/Windows/ directory.. (Before I move it into windows dir, the launcher even continously says "APK files folder EMPTY, although obviously I have put some files there)
You dont need to move any folders created by the APK Tools Launcher (APK Files, Logs, Projects, OUTPUT).
This is weird, the tool should list all .apk files found under "APK Files" folder. (even filename containing spaces or weird characters)

I've try the latest apktool 2.0.0 beta9
It works with apk that need multiple dependencies (in my case, Xperia SP FW .201, using framework-res.apk & semcgenericuxpres.apk)
it suceed to decompile. But I get an error "PathNotFound apktool.yml" while recompile..
Try to install frameworks and decode again, then check if the apktool.yml file exist in "Projects" folder.
If NOT, then it is not SUCCESSFULLY decompiled and you should import all the needed frameworks.
Or is it already a modified/themed app?
If YES, you should try to decompile the stock app. It's almost impossible to work with already themed/modified app
