Make a new folder and put .apk file in it (which you want to decode). Now rename the extension of this .apk file to .zip (eg. rename from filename.apk to filename.apk.zip) and save it. Now you get classes.dex files, etc. At this stage you are able to see drawable but not java & xml files, so continue.
** UPDATE: Android Complete tutorial now available here.
Now extract this zip apk file in the same folder. Now download dex2jar from this link dex2jar and extract it to the same folder. Now open command prompt and change directory to that folder. Then write
dex2jar classes.dex and press enter. Now you get classes.dex.dex2jar file in the same folder. Then download java decompiler from this link Java.decompiler.free and now double click on jd-gui and click on open file. Then open classes.dex.dex2jar file from that folder. Now you get class files and save all these class files (click on file then click “save all sources” in jd-gui) by src name. At this stage you get java source but the xml files are still unreadable, so continue to Step 3.
Now open another new folder and put these files
- Put .apk file which you want to decode
- Download apktool v1.x AND apktool install window using Google(http://code.google.com/p/android-apktool/downloads/list) (Very important first download apktool-install-windows-r05-ibot and extract the file . Second download apktool1.5.2, extract jar in that and put it in same folder ) and put in the same folder
- Download framework-res.apk file using Google and put in the same folder (Not all apk file need framework-res.apk file)
- Open a command window
- Navigate to the root directory of APKtool and type the following command:
apktool if framework-res.apk
apktool and "fname".apk (“fname” denotes filename which you want to decode)
Now you get a file folder in that folder and now you can easily read xml files also.
It’s not any step just copy contents of both folder to the single one and now enjoy with source code.

Russia Wants Apple & SAP To Turn Over Their Source Codes
As you’re probably aware by now, China is not the biggest fan of Microsoft and has accused the company of anti-monopoly activities and also to a certain extent, spying. Well it looks like Russia too has fears about spying, although not necessarily from Microsoft. According to a report from Reuters, it seems that the Russian government is asking that Apple and SAP turn over their source code for inspection.
According to the Russian government, they claim that the proposal for the source code of both companies is to ensure the rights of consumers and corporate users are protected in terms of privacy of personal data, as well as to ensure state security. It seems highly unlikely that either Apple or SAP will be turning their source codes over.
After all, the source codes to their software is the bread and butter of their business activities, and if it somehow got leaked in the process of inspection, well safe to say that will be extremely disastrous.
In a statement made by Russia’s Communications Minister, Nikolai Nikiforov, “Edward Snowden’s revelations in 2013 and U.S. intelligence services’ public statements about the strengthening of surveillance of Russia in 2014 have raised a serious question of trust in foreign software and hardware.” What do you guys think? Any chance of Apple or SAP turning over their source code to the Russian government anytime soon?
