Android Multitool



Hello,
I´m glad to present my Android Multitool wich makes it easier to decompile/recompile applications + jar framework files. You can also sign your apk by easily clicking a button.

Requirements:
  • Winows OS XP / 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10
  • Installed Java on Windows
  • Installed Microsoft Powerpacks
  • Installed .NET framework

- Easy handling: Select your apk and push the "decompile" button!
- This tool makes modding much faster and easier, no cmd handling any more.
- You can read the log which is integrated in the tool to find your mistake in the error.
- ADB inside: Push files into your file system with a few clicks

It looks like this so far:

How to use this tool?

Follow this small how to!


Here you go..

Well, first extract the AndroidMultitool folder to C:\. Otherwise it probably won´t work
-copy your framework-res.apk in the Framework-Files folder and other files you want to mod in the "Files" folder (this folder is for all your files you want to mod, don't pick files from any other location)
-Next you have to start AndroidMultitool.exe
-select your framework-res.apk and push the "install" button (check log for errors)


Decompiling and recompiling apk files:

-select the apk you want to mod/decompile and push the "decompile" button (check log for errors)
Note: You can check the "use baksmali" checkbox, then e.g. the useless .line text will be removed
-your decompiled apk will be located in C:\AndroidMultitool\Decompiled_apk"apkname" as a folder
-if you want to compile your apk again, select your decompiled folder, check the "apk" radio button and compile it again (check log for errors)

-your recompiled apk will be located in C:\AndroidMultitool\Compiled_apk"apkname"


Decompiling and recompiling jar files:

-select in the combobox ".jar" (check the "use baksmali" checkbox for deleting the useless .line comments)
-select the ".jar" file you want to mod
-push the "decompile" button
-your decompiled jar file will be locaten in C:\AndroidMultitool\Decompiled_jar"jarname"
-for recompiling you have to check the "jar" radiobutton and select the folder within your decompiled ".jar" file
-push the compile button
-your compiled jar file will be located in C:\AndroidMultitool\Compiled_jar"jarname"\classes.dex
-delete the "classes.dex" file in your ".jar" file
-copy the new "classes.dex" file you compiled in the ".jar" file


Signing apk files:

-select the ".apk" you want to sign
-push the "sign" button
-the signed apk file is located in C:\AndroidMultitool\Signed_apk"apkname_signed"


Using tags:

You want to decompile many files from different devices or different android versions / frameworks? Tagging makes it possible!
- before installing your framework type in any tag (like "hero")
- then install your framework and work normally


Android Debug Bridge

You want to push files with adb to your device? Follow these instructions:
Please klick on the "advanced" register in the tool
-push "check" to control if your device is ready
-if the device is not ready please follow the instructions, which are listed in the tool (device offline, no device...)
-if the device is ready, choose a file you want to push
-choose a path on the device, where the file should be placed later
-push the "push" Button
-alternately: press "Reboot device" to reboot your device and to let changes take effect

If there are any questions or bugs, please post them in the thread.

Enjoy easier apk handling!


Having issues with the program?
Try the batch version developed by @bovirus (it's also in the AndroidMultitool folder)




Questions and answers:

Q: The programm does not start, it crashes.

A: Please install Powerpacks, this one: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=145727&clcid=0x804


Q: What do you mean exactly with "!!!NOTE!!! After compiling you have to copy the AndroidManifest.xml and the META-INF folder from your old apk to your newly compiled one!! Otherwise you´ll get bootloop! " .. I don't understand.

A: You have to open your old apk (this one you selected for decompiling in the folder /files) and copy from that apk the AndroidManifest.xml and the META-INF folder to the apk you just decompiled and recompiled.


Q: I followed all steps in the startpost but I'm still getting this error: "apktool is not recognized as internal or external command"
What can I do?

A: Please refer to this post by @LasVegasRomeo: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=51017662&postcount=681

apktool 2.0.0
Details:

Details
v1.5.x -> v2.0.0
Java JRE 1.7 is required!
Update apktool to v2.0.0
aapt is now included inside the apktool binary. Its not required to maintain your own aapt install under $PATH. (However, features like -a / --aapt are still used and can override the internal aapt).
Remove framework $HOME/apktool/framework/1.apk or manually update via (FrameworkFiles)
Eagle eye users will notice resources are now decoded before sources now. This is because we need to know the API version via the manifest for decoding the sources.
Parameter Changes




Smali/baksmali 2.0 are included. This is a big change from 1.4.2. Please read the smali updates here for more information.
-o / --output is now used for the output of apk/directory.
-t / --tag is required for tagging framework files
-advance / --advanced will launch advance parameters and information on the usage output.
-m / --match-original is a new feature for apk analysis. This retains the apk is nearly original format, but will make rebuild more than likely not work due to ignoring the changes that newer aapt requires.
After [d]ecode, there will be new folders (original / unknown) in the decoded apk folder.
original/ = META-INF folder / AndroidManifest.xml, which are needed to retain the signature of APKs to prevent resigning. Used with -c / --copy-original on uild.
unknown/ = Files / folders that are not part of the standard AOSP build procedure. These files will be injected back into the rebuilt APK.
apktool.yml collects more information than before
SdkInfo = Used to re-populate the sdk information in AndroidManifest.xml since aapt requires it to be passed at runtime.
packageInfo = Used to help support Android 4.2 due to renamed manifest packages. Automatically detects difference between manifest and resources and performs automatic --rename-manifest-package on uild.
versionInfo = Used to re-populate the version information in the AndroidManifest.xml since aapt requires it to be passed at runtime.
compressionType = Used to determine the compression that resources.arsc had on the original apk to duplicate on uild.
unknownFiles = Used to record the name/location/compression type of non-standard files in Apk.



v2.1:

fixed freezes
bigger UI for better overview
option to save log to a text file
other small fixes

v2.0:

complete code rework
folder structure for a better overview
decompiled, recompiled, signed files will be located in their own folder
no more messy file handling
added radio buttons for choosing jar or apk
some graphical changes
added info button in the "installing framework" section

V1.2:

Added ability to decompile and recompile ".jar" files

other small fixes

- Android Multitool previous version

Library of previous version (Google Drive)

Note: Please take care that v. 3.5.9 (stock) included in the Google Drive repository DON'T include all updates reported before.


- Use always updated framework-res.apk

If you get error during decompilation/compilation of the apk, please check if you are using and updated version of framework.res.apk.
Please try to search, find and download an updated version of framework.-res.apk
Note: I suggest to rename the framework downloaded file name (without spaces) adding some info about it (like brand-model of device and Android version), like

framework-Samsung-S8-Android-7.1.2.apk

put the file in it in Framework-Files sub-folder of Android Multitool and install it in Android Multitool.
Then try again to decompile/recompile the application.

Very nice tool!

One feature request, could you have a checkbox for say the -b command so that we can get rid of the useless .linexx and .prologue lines? That would make this tool perfect :)

Another feature is adding the twframework-res.apk as a framework file? Thats essential for modding samsung system apk's. I usually have to install both twframework-res.apk and framework-res.apk before decompiling. Maybe adding 2 slots for the framework in the tool?

Thanks again!!

Sure, adding a second slot will be no problem!
But I don't know what you mean with this checkbox, could you explain me exactly what you mean?

When I decompile using baksmali this is the command I run...

Code:
java -jar baksmali.jar -b -o c:/smali c:/smali/classes.dex

The -b command prompts baksmali to remove all .line type code from the smali.

Here is an example .smali file before and after the -b command...

BEFORE: http://pastebin.com/gYKQ90cW
AFTER: http://pastebin.com/17i8k1X2

This method of decompiling smali makes it much much simpler to compare to other code.

Thanks!! :highfive:

Could anybody test trying to install .NET Framework?
Hopefully I get a solution for this problem, otherwise I'll make an Installer.

Ok. For starting the Tool is no Java necessary.
I think the dll's are missing, hopefully I get it working as far as possible.

    Thanks again!!

    Sure, adding a second slot will be no problem!
    But I don't know what you mean with this checkbox, could you explain me exactly what you mean?

    Library of previous version (Google Drive)

    Note: Please take care that v. 3.5.9 (stock) included in the Google Drive repository DON'T include all updates reported before.


    - Use always updated framework-res.apk

    If you get error during decompilation/compilation of the apk, please check if you are using and updated version of framework.res.apk.
    Please try to search, find and download an updated version of framework.-res.apk
    Note: I suggest to rename the framework downloaded file name (without spaces) adding some info about it (like brand-model of device and Android version), like

    framework-Samsung-S8-Android-7.1.2.apk

    put the file in it in Framework-Files sub-folder of Android Multitool and install it in Android Multitool.
    Then try again to decompile/recompile the application.
