Installing extra files outside of Play Store

Extra binary files are necessary to deodex an Android Device. At this time, it is strictly prohibited for an Android app on Play Store to downlod binary files (.dex, .jar or APKs) outside of Play Store or to contain code capable of modifying other apps (which is what deodex'ing does). 

Please download this file and put it on your internal storage Downloads folder, /sdcard/Downloads often works and retry deodex'ing your device.

  • ...
  • Apps or SDKs that download executable code, such as dex files or native code, from a source other than Google Play.
