Edit Your APK’s the Easy Way with APK Edit
You may remember a while back, we talked about an APK tool called… well, Apktool by XDA member Brut.all. If you thought that was good, then wait until you put your hands on what XDA member Anoniem100 has prepared for us. Using Brut.all’s tool as a base, the dev created a GUI to make the use of this tool much, much easier and user-friendly.
