Android APKTool Becomes Android Multitool, Gains Tag Support and Takes Care of Your Decompiling Needs

We first talked about XDA Senior Member Flextrick‘s Android APKTool a little over a year ago. For those who don’t remember, Flextrick’s offering works as a frontend to the legendary APKTool (thread) by XDA Recognized Developer Brut.all, providing an easy-to-use and user-friendly package. Since it’s initial debut, the tool has continually evolved, and its second iteration adds application signing capabilities, a better UI, and the ability to work with both JAR and APK files. Now, the tool has been given another major update, as well as a name change.

Now in its third major iteration, Android APKTool is now Android Multitool. And between the time we last talked about the utility and today, it’s gained quite a lot of new features. For starters, it now allows you to use ADB to push modified files to your device. The tool’s UI has also been tweaked to allow file selection from anywhere on the host PC, as well as a few other eye candy additions. Finally, the tool also offers tag support.

If you are a loyal user looking for the latest version or if you are looking for a new tool to help you on your compiling and decompiling journey, head over to the utility thread to get in on the latest version.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
