For best results follow:
1. Create new folder inside my apktool folder.
2. Rename it to "" [Or whatever app you want to theme.].
3. Go back and open android[Or any folder present there] folder and copy apktool.yml and AndroidManifext.xml .
4. Reopen your newly created folder and paste the two file you copied to this folder.
5. Open apktool.yml using notepad++[If you are a Windows PC user like me] and change "apkFileName:" to "apkFileName:" and save.

Now when you will use apktool to recompile it you will get a .zip file instead of .apk file
And also change the package name in androidmanifest

No, These Theme zips are not actual Apps and so The AndroidManifest.xml does not contains any package name. Its a dummy AndroidManifest.xml
