    I have been following this tutorial on this website.

    But I get stuck at the command on step number 5.

    I type "java -jar baksmali.jar -x am.odex"

    But i get this error.

    Are you on Win7 or Ubuntu?
    Because every time i open that the "Main" and "Test" disappear.

    Maybe it was the version, I see they have 2.3.3 now, I was using 2.2.2.

    ...Norton just caught a Trojan in it?

    win 7 for this

    copy files from app into orig_app and files from framework into orig_frame

    use Main Skip.bat

    do number 3 and number 4

    then go into 15 advanced and do 13 and when asked do extreme


    when all is done the files will be in done_app and done_frame

    but all the needed files will not be in there, any apk that did not have and odex file will need to be copied into there

    I used pull /system/app and pull /system/framework.
    Then used deodex app and deodex frame.
    I still have the done_app and done_frame.
    Should that be fine?


    And are you talking about apps like YouTube bc it doesn't have a odex file or you mean files i need to manually put in there from /app and /frame?

    I never really understood what deodexing does to a rom and what benefits we the consumer get out of it. SO if someone could explain what deodexing a rom means and what we get out of it it would be helpful. Ive herd the term before but I dont know what it entails
