UPDATE:
Also after updated to latest rbox prerooted rom i could install settings.apk.

/system/priv-app/Settings/Settings.apk chmod 644

Other things installed were busybox / xposed / daydream/Deskclock for changing picture screensaver to normal clock.

Due to the fact it is not in recent apps u might start it via firestarter or es file explorer.
please reply to this post if someone else has managed to get this also working.

--------------------------------------------------
For all that want to use the native Settings.apk.

just install this one:
put settings.apk somewhere on your sdcard. use any desired filemanager (i prefer es file manager) just klick on it and then on the button install.

it should work and visible in my apps and firestarter.

Screenshots in post #5

I'm also working in getting the old Wallpaper back like on old ftv.

Stay tuned.

So how do you get this working then? Or have you just put this up randomly without testing or explaining the process? Cause I've tried pushing to all sorts of places & even resigned the apk but still as per usual nothing happening or even showing in the appsame section?

just copied it with es filemanager from sd card to System/priv-app changed permission and open it via firestarter.

also i tried about 8 different ones till i got the working one from custom nvidia shield 5.1 rom working.

only audio/language and developer menue wont open.

but i installed basic dreams and got rid off the wallpaper screensaver and replaced by clock.

I can't even see the settings app In firestarter? I've tried signing the apk, not signing it? Putting it in various different locations, & even putting it in a folder? Can you not give us more info?

I'm rooted on rboxs prerooted 5.0.5 r4 & have xposed & have googleplay running too if any of that makes any difference?

If you don't mind could you tell me if its in a folder & the name of the folder & what's the name of the settings app & what are the permissions set at? Cause this is bugging me now?

that's really strange.

i also installed some other standard rom stuff, but i can't imagine that someof them might be needed before installing settings.apk

but these things from stock i also installed:

Basic dream
deskclock
livewallpaper
livewallpaperpicker
launcher2
i'm also trying to get normal systemui.apk working, cause amazon has build their own AFTVSystemUI.apk as i see.

If you wouldn't mind if you have time could you pull the apk from your system & pm me a link just incase It got messed up via downloading? With the permissions & file location it was installed to? I think it was put in system/priv-app location.

u have busybox installed?
updated today to latest rbox pre rooted.
reinstalled xposed and busybox.
put settings filder in system/priv-app
changed to rw-r-r permission.

rebooted and installed settings apk (once again) via click on it then install.

due to the fact i havent install firestarter till now. settings apk can also be opened via es file explorer -> local-> apps

it should work.
