Dear evildog1 - thanks for a good tool!
But there is a question:
since the current drag'n'drop in APK Easy Tool (v1.59.2) works not for each path and name of APK-file, - can you add to the context menu also menu item like "apk-info" ?
For now, temporarily, I had to add to the "Resources" folder - apk_info.bat and axmlprinter.jar (attached), and a shortcut on apk_info.bat - into the Windows folder "SendTo", and it somehow helps...

I'll see what i can do with it
You can also use GUI version https://github.com/Enyby/APK-Info

Can u please add feature to compile as .aab as it's required now by google and thanks for the great app
No plans to support it since i'm not a fan of 'Split APK'. If i want to support, i need to create a new tool and depend on a 3rd party tool. I don't have time for that
I will stick to APK format as long as possible

Maybe just use APK Combo to download standalone APK, it still works https://apkcombo.com/apk-downloader/

If APK format died, i will leave the modding scene. i'm not capable of learning new things anymore

My apologies, it was past midnight and I was very exhausted with modifying package name, I didn't see the details
No problem
The thing is i'm not into modding anymore so i don't have such info, but i'm still maintaining the tool. Now idk if i can maintain any longer as my life getting busier. I may consider to open source it

Fair, I only asked about the apkeasytool file which apktool.yml, I didn't understand the packageinfo renameManifestPackage: null, I tried going to the website documentation and I didn't get any guidance there, that's why I posted here as I thought you could explain what it means but I got it right, I just write the new package name, apkeasytool renames it

apktool.yml is generated by apktool.jar itself, not mine. not sure why iBot didn't make docs
Maybe you can ask him by reporting an issue on his apktool github repo?

So I have been using this amazing tool for a while. However, now it is not compiling any of my apks. The decompiling works fine but it can't recompile even when I don't change the file.

Following is the errors I get.

    Apk Easy Tool is a lightweight GUI application that enables you to manage, sign, compile and decompile the APK files for the apps you are working on.

    APK Easy Tool is absolute free for commercial and non-commercial use.

    Please note: This tool is not meant for newbies, but meant for faster tasks for those who are lazy to use CMD

    Requirements:
    - Windows 7 or above
    - .NET Framework 4.7.2 or above
    - Java 8 or JDK 8, doesn't matter which one

    Features:
    Decompile/Compile
    Decomile and compile APK, DEX and JAR files, with SPACE, symbols and germany, danish, swedish etc... characters support. Can cancel during operation

    Sign/Zipalign
    Signing and ZipAligning of APK/JAR files. Can cancel during operation

    Extract/Zip APK
    Extract and zip APK with 7z Compression-level 0-9. Can cancel during operation

    APK Infomation
    Show APK infomation with icon using aapt dump badging and link to Play Store

    Framework
    Install your framework and manage framework paths

    Log output
    View your logs to find errors.

    Options
    Change options of tool, decompile, compile, sign and zipalign. Options: Java heap, Apktool version, apksigner version, directories, java path, Windows explorer integration, remeber window position and more
    All options and textboxes are saved as config.xml and will load on launch
    Quick options on main.

    Drag and drop
    Drop APK, DEX, JAR files and Decompiled folder on buttons to perform actions. Drop outside buttons to select/open as file/folder

    Apktool.jar version selection
    Can switch to other versions of apktool.jar on options
    Add other apktool.jar in "Apktool" folder

    Shortcuts
    4 buttons to open work directories of decompiled APK, compiled APK, extracted APK and zipped APK
    Jumplist shortcuts
    mSZHfpP.png


    Windows explorer integration
    Do actions by just right-clicking on APK file and choose the following options, decomile or compile APK, DEX, and JAR files, Zipalign APK, Check align, Sign APK and Install APK
    IvZ7Xm0.png
    Wa6eXdl.png


    Getting started:
    For the first time you launch the tool, it will automatically set apktool.jar and work directories for you. You can change it in Options
    Keep in mind, it will always check for update on launch. You can disable it in options if you want.

    Selecting/opening APK or decompiled folder will be used as your main project work. So if you doing actions, it will be placed in your work directories that was been set.

    Spaces are supported but accent characters are barely supported, you may need to rename it before opening APK. APK filename that contains chinese, japanese etc will still not work even code page is set correctly in the Options so you need to rename the APK. I don't know why Windows behave like that.

    Drag and drop are supported. The files would be placed on the same directory where the apk came from

    You do not need to use Framework unless you know what you are doing, it is for ROM developers and System App modder only

    It works the same way as the command line version :)

    Download links:
    Installer is no longer released due to an unknown error with Microsoft Visual Studio Installer Projects. It is always buggy, so I gave up. Please use portable version, it's easy to extract and you can easly see the content before you extract





    (It can take longer time to update there)

    -------------------------------------------

    I understand the concern when this tool gets flagged as malware but I can tell you this tool is safe. There is nothing that could potentialy harm your PC. Why would I do that to you?? You may thought i'm evil, but not really, it was just a silly name, it came from a song name called Evil-dog or something. But still, i'm not evil 😄
    Also Softpedia labs has tested this tool multipletimes and still reported this tool 100% clean. See here: https://www.softpedia.com/get/Programming/Debuggers-Decompilers-Dissasemblers/Apk-Easy-Tool.shtml

    Disclaimer:
    Same as apktool, APK Easy Tool is neither intended for piracy, game hacking and other non-legal uses. It could be used for localizing, adding some features or support for custom platforms, analyzing applications and much more. Just try to be fair with authors of an app, that you use and probably like.

    This thread is NOT the right place to discuss about general modding like editing smali and xml files, editing png, how to do stuff illegally, decrypting stuff, app crashes etc. Illegal activity does not belong here. I'm NOT here to help with it. Don't send me a private message about it.
    General modding question goes to
    Android Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting
    Framework and system modding related should be posted at the correct section of your device model, post on Android Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting if the site does not have a specific model

    Please keep this thread on-topic, and anything about apktool related only. I can't help with anything else unless it's really caused by APK Easy Tool or apktool

    I won't be able to answer every inquiries stuff that may be already explained here!


    Troubleshooting:
    It's not unusual that it can't decompile or compile. Please try the troubleshooting below to see if it solves the problem:
    Keep in mind that there's a big difference between identifying issues related specifically to the "APK Easy Tool Software" and the "Apktool Java Utility (by iBotPeaches).
    More info https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...1-58-3-dec-2020.3333960/page-25#post-79520098. Thanks @Ibuprophen for explaining
    • Make sure the filename does not contain any symbol or special characters like chinese, japanese, arabic etc since apktool.jar is command line based tool, it does not support it
    • Use latest version of apktool.jar (See FAQ Below for more info)
    • If you are using latest version of apktool.jar, try use older version of apktool.jar. Sometimes it can mitigate the issue (See FAQ Below for more info)
    • Go to Framework tab and clear the framework, and decompile the APK again.
    • Decompile APK with "Only disassemble the main dex classes (classes[0-9]*.dex) in the root" checked. Prevents disasemble dex from assets folder) (apktool 2.4.1 and up only)
    • Decompile APK with "Don't decode resources.arsc" checked if you are only editing Java (smali) (It will prevent the decompile of resources. This keeps the resources.arsc intact without any decode.)
    • Decompile APK with "Don't decode classes.dex" checked if you are only editing the resources (xml) (--no-src will prevent the disassembly of the dex file(s). This keeps the apk dex file(s) and simply moves it during build.)
    • Compile with "Use the aapt2 binary instead of aapt" checked (Use the aapt2 binary instead of appt)
    • Sometimes Java 8 64-bit works better than Java 8 32-bit. If your system is Windows 64-Bit, please uninstall Java 32-bit version (and all other Java versions you don't use) and install Java 64-bit version (Windows Offline (64-bit)) or install JDK 8 64-bit (Windows x64) if you are developing Java. Java and JDK does not matter for apktool.jar
    • Sometimes your antivirus may prevent it from working correctly. Disable it temporary
    If nothing solves your problem, please check list of Apktool.jar errors:)

    I recommended that you search the issues on Apktool Github repo too

    FAQ:
    Q: Can you support .aab (Android app bundle)/Split APK format?
    A: Never, apktool is intended for APK ONLY. I don't have time to research and create another tool and i'm not a fan of 'Split APK' technology. Just use any APK sites such as APK Combo to download standalone APK, or use a tool called Split APKs Packer (SAP) to merge split APKS into standalone APK. There is no harm working with standalone APK.

    If you still need split APK, please look for alternative tools

    Q: How can I update or downgrade apktool.jar?
    A: Download apktool.jar here: https://bitbucket.org/iBotPeaches/apktool/downloads/
    Place apktool.jar inside \APK Easy Tool\Apktool. Restart the tool if running
    Go to Options and switch apktool version

    SliCLTF.png


    Do not forget to clear the framework after switching version!


    Q: I'm getting an error "'Java' is not found as an internal or external command"
    A: Reinstall Java or JDK

    Q: I'm getting an error "java.lang.OutOfMemoryError"
    A: Go to Options tab and increase Java heap size

    If your system is Windows 64-bit, please uninstall Java 32-bit version (and all other Java versions if you don't use) and install Java 64-bit version (Windows Offline (64-bit)) or install JDK 8 64-bit (Windows x64) if you are developing Java. Java and JDK do not really matter for apktool

    Q: I'm getting an error "Error occurred during initialization of VM. Could not reserve enough space for (...)KB object heap"
    A: Go to Options tab and reduce Java heap size. Recommended size: 1024m

    If your system is Windows 64-bit, please uninstall Java 32-bit version (and all other Java versions if you don't use) and install Java 64-bit version (Windows Offline (64-bit)) or install JDK 8 64-bit (Windows x64) if you are developing Java. Java and JDK do not really matter for apktool

    Q: I'm getting an error "brut.androlib.AndrolibException: brut.common.BrutException: could not exec (exit code = -1073741701)"
    This is basically the problem with Java 32-bit.
    32-bit is old and support will be stopped on apktool 2.6.0. Please consider to switch to Windows 64-bit system if you still using 32-bit system, and install Java 64-bit version (Windows Offline (64-bit)) or install JDK 8 64-bit (Windows x64) if you are developing Java. Java and JDK do not really matter for apktool

    Q: Window is not opening but still appear in taskbar
    A: The window is out of screen, edit the config.xml and change

    Code:
    <CheckBoxWinPos>true</CheckBoxWinPos>

    to

    Code:
    <CheckBoxWinPos>false</CheckBoxWinPos>

    Q: Drag and drop does not work
    Do not run it as administrator. Windows never allow drag and drop if an application running as administraor for security reason

    Q: How to update or delete AETShellExt.dll?
    A: If you are using shell extension for APK Easy Tool and you want to update, you must unregister and uninstall it first

    Open APK Easy Tool. Go to options -> General and click Uninstall to uninstall Context menu integration. It will ask you for admin rights
    Windows 8/10: Open Task Manager and restart all explorer.exe processes
    Windows 7: Open Task Manager, end task all explorer.exe processes and run new task explorer.exe

    Then you can replace or delete AETShellExt.dll and don't forget SharpShell.dll ServerRegistrationManager.exe too

    Q: Is drag and drop supported?
    A: Yes it supports drag and drop APK/ZIP file Simply drop a file on buttons to do something.
    Examples:
    - Drop an APK file on "Decompile APK" button to decompile APK in the same directory
    - Drop an APK file outside (drop file on white background) to select APK to work on.

    Q: How can I reset APK Easy Tool?
    A: Go to Options -> General. Scroll down and click Reset to default. You can also manually delete config.xml beside its exe

    Q: Is APK Easy Tool collecting any data?
    A: No, we respect your privacy very seriously. It can only connect to my read-only repo server that checks for updates. I don't own a real server that is writeable

    Q: Do you release the source code?
    A: No, it's my decision and you should respect that. There are already open source projects on Github that can help you getting started

    https://github.com/INF1NUM/APKToolGUI
    https://github.com/oscar0812/ApktoolFX

    Q: Alternatives?
    A: I do like other nice alternatives, I don't competing against them. Try out Tickle My Android, a command line tool that are also easy to use. And if you are fan of IDE, try out APK Studio or APKLab. There are a lot more of tools than that. But don't expect that using other tools will always solve any Apktool issues :p

    Reporting an issue:
    Have any problem with APK Easy Tool? Please fill out the details. Do feel free to report an Apktool issue if you are really sure you can't find answer anywhere
    - Describe the bug, clear and concise description of what the bug is.
    - Full logs

    - Added signature signing options. v4 signing disabled by default so it doesn't create useless .idsig file
    - "Only disassemble the main dex classes" is on by default due to annoying smali_assets/assets.dex error on some APKs

    - Switched back to aapt 1 due to some issues getting APK info
    - Default heap is 2048m
    - Fix icon loading for decompiled APK
    - Fix framework installation path
    - Temporary disabled CMD mode, may be removed in next updated. New way to execute CMD is being improved.
    - For more privacy, logs will only save if an error occured. You can still clear the log anytime
    - Portable Java path has changed. Select java.exe instead the bin folder
    - You can press ESC to cancel which would kill process of java.exe, adb.exe, zipalign.exe and 7z.exe. This is not recommended to do
    - Added status bar. It's easier to work with it than custom yellow notice bar
    - Removed log date. I don't think anyone will ever look back of their logs
    - Removed log level
    - Removed replace spaces with underscore. You can use PowerToys which has PowerRename that does the job
    - Removed signapk.jar since it's too old and slow
    - Removed ZIP signing since not many using this much. APK Easy Tool should be more focused on APK. Please use an alternative tool for ZIP signing https://forum.xda-developers.com/an...g/tool-zip-builder-v4-2-1-build-sign-t3739556
    - Removed quick options because the UI looking bit awkward. It should be simple and more space for multi-languages
    - Removed disable tooltip checkbox. Now it is always shown

    Good news to everyone. Next week I have enough time to work with it and this time, I will not make and leave any new bugs behind unlike what Microsoft did with Win10. Sorry for being Microsoft (just kidding) xD. I will make sure no bugs exists and I will read all previous posts looking for issues and suggestion. And I will switch back to apktool 2.3.4 jar for stability if 2.4.1 is not released yet

    Sorry for the long no updates. Was busy and had issues in my life. I kept planning to work with it but didn't. hope i can this time :)
