Okay! I took much time surfing all over the net to find this and finally I got the Perfect solution for people who are beginners(n00b)

If you try to decompile directly it won't work(not atleast for Core but only for some devices), so here we go

Things you will need:

APKTOOL

Script

Rooted Core

Root Browser (or something similar)

Make sure you have Java SDK installed in pc.

Notepad++ or a decent xml editor


Preparation :

1)Copy these two apks' in sd card or somewhere you can access it from pc.

system\framework\"framework-res.apk"
and
system\app\"SystemUI.apk"

2)Copy these two apk in your computer system

3)Extract APKTOOL and Script until you get "aapt.exe", "apktool.bat", "apktool.jar" .

4) Make a new folder anywhere in your comp. and paste these
(i) framework-res.apk
(ii) SystemUI.apk
(iii) aapt.exe
(iv) apktool.bat
(v) apktool.jar
(vi) You also need to paste "cmd.exe", use Run command to find it and paste it in the folder...


Steps:

(i) Open cmd.exe, it should show the location of the current folder

(ii) Type
Code:
apktool if framework-res.apk
(iii) After it is done, Type
Code:
apktool d SystemUI.apk
(iv) Now you successfully have SystemUI.apk decompiled in the same folder !!!


Precautions:

i) Ensure you have not "CUT" but "COPIED" the apks from the folder, this can HARD BRICK your phone !

ii) Decompiling apks' takes time according to one's pc's speed, have patience.

iii) Please do not try to decompile or play with framework-res.apk in anyway if you are not experienced !

iv)And as thcoreguy says

Checked and tested:
*I have used win7 64-bit SONY laptop

*Worked for I8262 and SHOULD work for I8260 (the files)
