I have made my new Custom Rom for Sony Xperia C but its base is "Xperia-Z-Ized","Dark Xperia Z2", "ME Rom" roms. I have edited a lot inside their compilation and have created a new rom having their all special properties and Also i have added many features inside it from my side. Can someone please tell me how can i change the Rom Name as displayed inside Settings>>>About Phone. I have extracted "settings.apk" using 7-zip and found that about phone text is present inside "resources.arsc"..... Also i tried to edit this file using "notepad ++" but after placing this kind of edited apk Settings is not opening in my Rom. please tell me how can i change Rom Name

you can't edit any files inside apk by using 7zip. to edit you have decompile the apk's.
