Deodex APKs and JARs with Ease Using Ultimate Deodexer
If you theme or otherwise modify your device and its applications, you have surely deodexed either your entire ROM or certain apps. This process isn’t particularly difficult by any stretch of the imagination, but it can be a bit annoying and burdensome if not done with a user-friendly, GUI-based tool. Luckily, there’s Ultimate Deodexer.
Ultimate Deodexer by XDA Recognized Themer BDFreak is an incredibly user-friendly deodexing tool that allows anyone to deodex any APK or JAR with just a few clicks. This works for all Android versions, even 4.3 and 4.4, which were initially troublesome with certain utilities. All you have to do is load the appropriate files and click the start button. The tool even allows you to drag and drop files and folders to deodex. And once done, you are given a log that shows how everything went.
