    Thanks for this. After I’ve made the changes, how can I compile it (turn it back into an apk)? Is there such a “one click” site similar to it.

        so what’s the point of all of these if you can’t recompile it back? If you can get the apk resources, manifest file, and decompiled all the java files, so why can’t we get the apk back?

            so does this mean that we can build on top of the existing apk (before uncompiled)?

      You can use apktool (but this is not online, sorry!)

    Hi! I am the author of the javadecompilers.com tool.
    You cannot imagine how pleased I am by your tutorial (and the article bring me a lot of traffic :0))

    I just wanted to add that I added a new feature to my webservice: http://www.javadecompilers.com/apktool
    It is based on the apktool (https://ibotpeaches.github.io/Apktool/) and able to decode resources from an apk to original form.
    You may download apk application of your choice and use this website to extract and research assets and the manifest file.
    Some limitations, obviously, exist due to the service ‘online nature’: you may extract and research assets and the manifest file, but it is impossible to recompile the application at the moment…

    Still, this is a no-hassle way to ‘open’ the android application, so I hope some people would find it useful.
    With very best regards and thank you again!
    Andrew
