Android Decompiler

The Android Decompile is a script that combines different tools for succesfully decompiling any Android package (APK) to it's Java source-code and resources (including the AndroidManifest.xml, 9-patches, layout files,...).


To accomplish the goal of a full decompile we use these tools:

  • Dex2Jar : Version
  • android-apktool : Version 1.5.2
  • JD-Core-Java : Version 1.2
  • Artistic Style (astyle) : Version 2.04

Supported Platforms

The tools has been built on Mac, but most of it should work on all UNIX environments! Code formatting is not guaranteed to work on all platforms.
