Default [Q] About Odex

Hi~
I want to edit the systemUI.apk of CM7.1.5. But, it is an odex Rom. So I gonna deodex the SystemUI.apk in order to edit "\smali\com\android\systemui\statusbar".
And here is the question:
After I finished the edit work, what should I do? Just put the SystemUI.apk into /system/app or I need to odex it?

Thanks a lot if you can help me~

If you only want to change icons (png files) you can simply open it with winzip or a similar program, change the png files (you must add them without compression), then simply put the modified file in system/apps, I use Root Explorer, but you must change permissions according to other files (rw-r--r--). Copy the modified apk in /system, change permissions and then move it to system/app, then reboot to recovery and zipalign entire system. No need to wipe cache.
