Dedexer is a disassembler tool for
DEX files. DEX is a format
introduced by the creators of the Android platform. The
format and the associated opcode set is in distant relationship with
the Java class file format and Java bytecodes. Dedexer is able to read
the DEX format and turn into an "assembly-like format". This format was
largely influenced by the Jasmin
syntax but contains Dalvik
opcodes. For this reason, Jasmin
is not able to compile the
the download page from here.
How to use
Download ddx.jar and launch dedexer
java -jar ddx.jar
Typical invocation is the following:
java -jar ddx.jar -d
<directory> <dex file>
<Directory> is the file system
location where dedexer generates
its output file and <dex file> is the location of the input file.
Additonally, the -o switch can be added to the command line which
generates a detailed log file about the internal structure of the DEX
How to compile
You are encouraged to extend the
tool, there is a lot to do! In order
to compile dedexer, you need JUnit 4.5.
There are no particular restrictions on the Java environment, JDK 1.5.0
and JDK 6 were tested.
Download ddx.zip file, edit the
build.xml and update the home and
junit-home properties to reflect the layout of your file system. Then
you can build dedexer by invoking ant. The "ant junit" command runs the
unit tests too.
