you can simply copy the files from your folder to the folder with missing files. but make sure that when you open the apktool.yml using the texteditor it has the name of the folder being edited with .zip extension name.

1) Pull your systemUI.apk using adb from terminal but made sure you cd to your preferred directory e.g. type "cd download" and your pull will be saved in download. Use code:
Code:
adb pull system/priv-app/SystemUI.apk
or copy and paste it manually using a file explorer like solid explorer or root explore from playstore.

2)Then decompile using apkmanager(easier) or apktool (harder)
3)Edit images
4)Edit manifest by deleting all and pasting
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0" package="com.sonymobile.dummy"
  xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <application android:label="None" />
</manifest>
5)Recompile using apkmanager or apktool
6)Rename it from .apk to .zip
7)Unzip it.
8)Compress the AndroidManifest.xml, red folder and resource.arsc file. Into zip
9)Rename zip to com.android.systemui.zip and place it in assets folder.

Hi I'm having trouble trying to get my themeFlatisan to work for non-rooted devices. Do I need to use the tool given to compress my zip files? Cause I've been using the compile and rename to .zip method?
