Summary0005703: apktool 2.4.0-dirty cant rebuild apk files
DescriptionI noticed, that the current apktool version exit with an error while recomplining several apk files.

Error Message:

W: aapt: brut.common.BrutException: brut.common.BrutException: Could not extract resource: /prebuilt/linux/aapt_64 (defaulting to $PATH binary)

Its not possible to recompile these apk with that version. I downloaded the current version (2.4.0) from and it works.

Maybe the version in the kali repo is broken it should be replaced.
Steps To Reproducesudo apt-get install apktool;
apktool d test.apk
apktool b test
