@rsmnarts take a look at this, should point you in right direction - JesusFreke/smali#254
anyone know about "compile error : 137" ?
"compile error : 137" - error occurred during compilation after decompiling apk file using apktool-2.4.0.jar.
"compile error : 137 "- The compile error was caused by insufficient memory. thanks all.....

Anyone interested in an opensource project?

Spec oriented development speeds up programming by generating code based on tests/specs. Tests required will be the same or less specs as a normal developer writes.

MSG me if interested

We have tested several apks and they failed on
libpng error: Not a PNG file

In some of the cases it just jpeg file , and when you convert it to png format the packaging will succeed
Is it relevant to create push request with this fix?

I am getting error in apktool while modifying instagram app
I'm trying to chase down where a particular string is used. I unpacked the APK with apktool, and I found the string and its name in strings.xml, and I found the name and its hex ID in public.xml. I'm stuck here, though. The ID and string names don't appear in any of the other files
oh, geez, I guess I should've expected this place to not be very active, hehe
Where is the apktool.apk storage location?
@iBotPeaches Where is the apktool.apk storage location?
hey guys, i am trying to complie an APK which was decompiled fine. Re-compiling it using Apktool 2.4.1 throws many manifest.xml and lots of layouts/*.xml errors
Anyone encountered such an issue ?
Hi everyone! At the decoding stage, I stucked with the next warning: "Cant find 9patch chunk in file". If i try to build again, app does not working correctly. What I need to do?

File Not Found
Error: Unable to access jarfile c:\Windows\apk\apktool_0.jar
I have downloaded Both apktool.jar and apktool.txt, create folder usr/local/bin and copied both files there.

Is it ok to use APKtool within an Android app?
If so, is it possible to provide it an InputStream of the APK, instead of a path?
I want to parse APK files within ZIP files, and the Android framework doesn't have this functionality...

Hi All
Can someone please let me know does Apktool supports decompiling/compiling of .aab( Android app bundle) files


Help bro i installed apktool then i dont know how to run it
decompile apk : apktool d app-debug.apk
package: apktool b app-debug(folder name)
really stupid question - can you use apktool to decompile an app, then add x86 support to that app, and recompile it?
an app i'm trying to tinker with doesn't support x86 so it won't run on like a genymotion emulator
my crappy physical tinker android won't let me get RW on /system, so i'd rather go this route than acquiring a better device
Lucas Ramage
You might be able to try compiling as x86_64 once you have the sources

I have some issue with the version 2.4.1-dirty, i did't achieve to depack and repack with the aapt option
I have the same issue than this one : iBotPeaches/Apktool#2149
but there is no real answer, I can use the -f -r but in that case i cannot change xml files
a comment propose to use the -p option but i don't know how to use it. I think I have the righ to write on tmp ecause I use the root account
Valentin Giannini
It seem to work if I build code from git :)

Hi everyone, new to this chat. I am developing a piece of firmware, everytime i edit a new version of framework-res.apk to allow double tap home to bring up recent activities, I get it to recompile and sign with signapk, when compiling the firmware it boots to recovery. If I use the stock framework-res.apk it works just fine. Does anyone know what is going on? Thank you
@__Gianninou___twitter I'm sorry, but I git cloned from git://, then build the project with gradlew. But I cannot figure out how to use the built jar's in order to use apktool d xxxxx.apk. How did you get it working?
