How to use this tool?
Follow this small how to!
Here you go..
Well, first extract the AndroidApktool folder to C:\. Otherwise it propably won´t work
-copy your framework-res.apk 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 AndroidApktool.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:\AndroidApktool\Decompiled_apk\”apkname” as a folder
-if you want to compile your apk again, select your decompiled folder, check the “apk” radiobutton and compile it again (check log for errors)
!!!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! (Don’t check the smali checkbox, it will create a classes.dex file from you smali files)
-your recompiled apk will be located in C:\AndroidApktool\Compiled_apk\”apkname”

-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:\AndroidApktool\Compiled_jar\”jarname”\classes.d ex
