Oh, How I miss it.

Due to interview purpose, I wanna know some inside implementation details about a certain apk. In order to do further investigation, I searched how to de-compile apk files on the internet. The reference article below is so wonderful that it lists necessary tools and also the commands how to trigger them.

In brief, you need dex2jar and  JD-GUI. If you want resource, or read smali files, apktool will do the trick too.
