Just decompiled an app, would like to "generate" tickets by coding instead of by paying.

    Hi,
    My friend made an app that generates a train ticket when you purchase one through paypal, however, I found out there were some flaws in his app that if someone were to decompile it, they could bypass the payment screen and get the ticket regardless. However, I do not know how to do this, can anybody help?

    Your asking how to decompile others work on a forum that allows only legal topics? LOL

    This sounds like an attempt at fraud to me. Although I suspect this "train ticket" thing, just like about all online e-ticketing and payment systems, the actual processing and transactions are done server side AFAIK, in the cloud. And the client app is just a front end, basically a dumb browser, that just passes information between the server and the user.

    The decompiling is the least of the problems here. You appear to be asking for help in generating forged train tickets (because if no payment has been made they are forgeries), and hence in committing criminal fraud.

    That's also some way to treat your friends!

    So instead of trying to hack an app to commit further criminal activities, why don't you do the right thing, and inform your friend so that he can improve the secuity of his app?

    Android forums does not facilitate discussion of methods to decompile apps, or otherwise reverse engineer application code.
