Apktool v2.7 releases: A tool for reverse engineering Android apk files


It is a tool for reverse engineering 3rd party, closed, binary Android apps. It can decode resources to the nearly original form and rebuild them after making some modifications; it makes possible to debug smali code step by step. Also, it makes working with the app easier because of project-like files structure and automation of some repetitive tasks like building apk, etc.



  • Disassembling resources to the nearly original form (including resources.arsc, classes.dex, 9.png. and XMLs)
  • Rebuilding decoded resources back to binary APK/JAR
  • Organizing and handling APKs that depend on framework resources
  • Smali Debugging (Removed in 2.1.0 in favor of IdeaSmali)
  • Helping with repetitive tasks
