Info 2 [GUIDE] How to change Rom Name of Custom Rom

Here is a way by which you can Change the Displayed Custom Rom Name
THIS CANNOT BE DONE BY EDITING "build.prop" FILE SO READ THIS GUIDE FOR XPERIA DEVICES CUSTOM ROMS.

Software Needed (downloads attached below)

1) Java
2) 7-zip
3) Notepad ++
4) Advanced APK Tools



Files Needed From Custom Rom:
1) framework-res.apk (from "system >> framework ")
2) SemcGenericUxpRes.apk (from "system >> framework ")
3) settings.apk ( from "system >> app")



Expected From You :
1) Some Time
2) Patience
3) Basic knowledge of Installing Software.


Step wise Guide

STEP 01 : Download and Install "Java" and "Notepad++". Extract "Advanced APK Tools".
STEP 02 : Place the Three Files mentioned above from Custom Rom to "2-IN" folder of Advanced APK Tools.
STEP 03 : Open "Advance ApkTool.exe"; it will check Java on your your PC and then you will get a screen showing different options.
STEP 04 : Type "1" and press Enter to select the Option "1- Install Framework". Install "framework-res.apk" and "SemcGenericUxpRes.apk". Then come back to Main Menu.
STEP 05 : Type "2" and press Enter to select the Option "2- Decompile Files". Decompile "settings.apk" and wait for some time as it will take some time. After decompiling minimize "Advance APK Tools" but DO NOT CLOSE it.
STEP 06 : Open "3-OUT" folder in "Advance APK Tools" folder. There you will see a folder names "Settings.apk". Open this folder and go to " res >> values " folder.
STEP 07 : In the Values folder open the file "strings.xml" using Notepad++. Press "ctrl" and 'F" keys on the Keyboard of your PC at the same time to find the Rom Name as shown in Device. After Finding the ROM Name replace it with Whatever you Want. Save this file and Close is.
STEP 08 : Go back to "Advanced APK Tools" and Type "3" and press Enter to select the Option "3-Recompile Files". Recompile "settings.apk" and wait for some time as it will take some time. After recompiling close "Advance APK Tools".
STEP 09 : Now go to "4-OUT" folder of "Advanced APK Tools" where you will find "settings.apk". Extract this file using 7-zip.
STEP 10 : Open the extracted "settings.apk" and delete the file "Android Manifent.xml " inside it.
STEP 11 : Open 3-OUT" folder. Then go to "Settings.apk folder >> original " from this folder Copy all the contents i.e. "META-INF" folder and " AndroidManifest.xml" file and paste them in extracted "settings.apk" in "4-OUT" folder.
STEP 12 : After all this, select all contents of settings.apk in 4-OUT Folder and add them to archieve using 7-Zip and replace ".zip" extention by ".apk".



Place this "settings.apk" into "system >> app " folder of Custom Rom and flash this Custom Rom. You will have the ROM NAME changed.


Hurray!!! You have successfully Changed the ROM NAME of Custom Rom for Xperia Devices.

Firstly, this thread has nothing to do with Development so I've moved it to General where it should have been created.
Secondly, you have no permission to attach the file: Advancedapktool.zip
Thirdly, you posted no credits to the original author for this tool.
I've removed the tool and linked to the original authors thread instead.
