    What is the new de-compilation process for Froyo? The .odex files did not exist in 2.1 correct; or am I wrong?

    Prior to 2.2 the de-compilation process was fairly simple:

    1.) Extract .apk, grabbing the classes.dex
    2.) Use a tool like dex2jar to convert the .dex to a .jar
    3.) Use a tool like DJ to de-compile the .class files

    So where are we now? The classes have been removed from the .apk and moved to the .odex; is that correct?

    Am I way off base? Is there a new process to de-compile?
