Here I am writing a very detailed guide on what is told HERE
If you are pushing the settings.apk using Root Explorer then set the permission as "RW-R--R--". You can also flash the settings.apk using CWM. Just download zip file from HERE and place your edited settings.apk in system>>app folder of the file that you download. Flash this file using CWM.

Step 1 : Download Advanced APK Tools, 7-Zip, Notepad++
Step 2 : Get your settings.apk and framework-res.apk
Step 3 : Place your settings.apk and framework-res.apk in 2-IN folder of advanced apk tools folder.
Step 4 : open advancel apk tools.exe and select the option to install firmware, select your framework-res.apk here.
Step 5 : After firmware is installed, select the option to deceompile file and decompile the settings.apk
Step 6 : Go to 3-OUT folder and open Setings.apk folder.
Step 7 : Go to res>>xml and open the file "device_info_settings.xml" using Notepad++.
Step 8 : Now go to bottom of the file and add lines like these :
Code:
<Preference android:title="@string/rom_header" android:key="rom_header" android:summary="@string/rom_name" style="?android:preferenceInformationStyle" />

<Preference android:title="@string/author_header" android:key="author_header" android:summary="@string/author_name" style="?android:preferenceInformationStyle" />
Step 9 : Now go to res>>values and open the "strings.xml" file using Notepad++
Step 10 : Now go to bottom of the file and add lines like these :
Code:
<string name="rom_header">Rom Name</string>
<string name="rom_name">nameofyourromhere</string>
<string name="author_header">Developed By</string>
<string name="author_name">yournamehere</string>
Step 11 : Save both the files and get out of all the open folders.
Step 12 : Now in advanced apk toos select the option of recompile files and then recompile the Settings.apk.
Step 13 : Now open 4-OUT folder and there you will see new settings.apk.
Step 14 : Extract this settings.apk using 7-Zip.
Step 15 : Open 3-out>>Settings.apk>>original and copy everything from there.
Step 16 : Open 4-done and paste all the files where you have extracted the settings.apk. Replace the files when asked.
Step 17 : Select all the files and using 7-Zip add all of them in a archive and replace the .zip extension be .apk when making the archive.
