One of the best things about Android is that you can change what you don’t like. You don’t need to stick to some absurd functionality or design just because it exists. If you have a bit of knowledge about Android, you might have seen many modded APKs on the Internet. Also, you might have seen many themed apps in custom ROMs that are modified to blend into the ecosystem. Before getting into the theming and modding business, you should first learn how to decompile and recompile APK files. Today we’ll see how to do that using a simple tool.
Before we jump into the tutorial, let’s just get familiar with the technicalities. Decompiling an APK means to extract the contents of the app which allows you to modify individual aspects of an app. For instance, you can simply change the color palette of the app by just changing few hex codes. Depending on the expertise, you can even modify the functionality of the app if needed. Once your work is completed, you need to recompile the files to form an APK.
