My final step is drag back and save using 7-zip, the file will automatic replace, no need manual delete.

By the way, thanks for highlighting removing of resources.arsc, add-in this step at final step now.

Correct. Just replace to your origin .apk and remember always do a backup for any .apk you want to amend.

Uot kitchen is the easier way to make a theme as long as we know how to use it..there are a lot of option there..n we juz need to upload the systemui.apk n framework-res.apk..but for contact,phone etc will remain stock..that one we can use ur tutor to modify..
