decompiling Android apps on windows

Hello,

 

if you are interested in decompiling Android apps on windows for educational purposes,you may want to give these applications a look:

 

1-Real APK Leecher: for downloading android apps on windows OS,please follow the instructions strictly,otherwise,it will only cost you unnecessary time of research,please enter device ID of your android kit,gmail user/pass associated with the device , and then try to download the apps and it will work perfectly.

2-dex2jar: a command line tool for converting DEX files(special compiled java classes of Android) to jar file.

3- dj-gui: convert the jar file to “readable” java code,please take into account that Android does some optimizations on the code before packaging it.so the code will not be 100% the same as the original one. e.g all of the constants will be converted to their corresponding values.

resources:

just convert the apk file to .zip,and you could see the app resources,save them,etc..
