    jadx - Dex to Java decompiler

    Command line and GUI tools for producing Java source code from Android Dex and Apk files

    :exclamation::exclamation::exclamation: Please note that in most cases jadx can't decompile all 100% of the code, so errors will occur. Check Troubleshooting guide for workarounds

    Main features:

    • decompile Dalvik bytecode to java classes from APK, dex, aar, aab and zip files
    • decode AndroidManifest.xml and other resources from resources.arsc
    • deobfuscator included

    jadx-gui features:

    • view decompiled code with highlighted syntax
    • jump to declaration
    • find usage
    • full text search
    • smali debugger, check wiki page for setup and usage

    Jadx-gui key bindings can be found here

    See these features in action here: jadx-gui features overview


    After download unpack zip file go to bin directory and run:

    • jadx - command line version
    • jadx-gui - UI version

    On Windows run .bat files with double-click
    Note: ensure you have installed Java 11 or later 64-bit version. For Windows, you can download it from (select x64 Installer).


    1. Arch linux Arch Linux package
      sudo pacman -S jadx
    2. macOS homebrew version
      brew install jadx
    3. Flathub Flathub
      flatpak install flathub com.github.skylot.jadx

    Use jadx as a library

    You can use jadx in your java projects, check details on wiki page

    Build from source

    JDK 8 or higher must be installed:

    git clone
    cd jadx
    ./gradlew dist

    (on Windows, use gradlew.bat instead of ./gradlew)

    Scripts for run jadx will be placed in build/jadx/bin and also packed to build/jadx-<version>.zip
