Default [Q] theming systemui.apk

I am into theming right now and have themed systemui.apk
and m ready to put that in my system.

there are 2 problems right now

1st is that when i recompile systemui using apktool it gives me warnings but builds the apk
even if i recompile it unchanged it gives some warnings
aapt: warning: string 'something' has no default translation in C:/Users/T3/apktool/ab/res; found:mk
there are numerous such lines. ab is directory where i have decompiled systemui.apk

2nd is that my rom is odexed and stock so on replacing systemui.apk it stops
so is there anyway i can put the systemui withoud deodexing my rom??
or some ppl have made flashable zips for systemui. Can someone teach me or give me a link where i can learn doing that??
or is there any way to deodex rom without usin odin and flashing??

Iknow I could have googled but i tried and found somethings related to linux and ubuntu but since im on windows
and here ppl are into theming i thought i could get some help here..

Thanx in Advance

Buddy... delete the systemui.odex and replace the stock systemui.apk with ur systemui.apk . N if u hv modded it correctly. Then it will work.


For making flashing zip.
Just add ur systemui.apk in meta inf folder in system/app/here paste it.

U can get Meta Inf folder by google or take it from any other flashing zip.
Don't forget to hit thanks
