Download

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 8 or later 64-bit version. For windows you can download it from adoptopenjdk.net (select "Install JRE").

Install

  1. Arch linux bash sudo pacman -S jadx
  2. macOS bash brew install jadx

Build from source

JDK 8 or higher must be installed:

git clone https://github.com/skylot/jadx.git
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
