step 2:

now extract this zip apk file in the same folder(in this eg or case NEW FOLDER). now dowmload 
dex2jar from this link and extract it to the same folder 
(in this case NEW FOLDER) open command prompt and reach to that folder (in this case 
NEW FOLDER)....after reaching write "dex2jar classes.dex" and press you get 
classes.dex.dex2jar file in the same download java decompiler from and now double click on jd-gui and click on open
 file then open classes.dex.dex2jar file from that you get class all
 these class file (click on file then click "save all sources" in jd-gui) src 
this stage you get source...but xml files are still cont...

step 3:

now open another new folder and put these files

    put .apk file which you want to decode

    download apktool using google and put in the same folder
