1. Download Settings Files.zip

2. Decompile your Settings.apk

3. Extract custombanner.xml of Settings Files.zip and place it in res/layout in decompiled Settings.apk

4. Open /res/xml/device_info_settings.xml

You'll see several <Preference android:title tags

5.Add this just a line above the first Preference tag:

Code:
<PreferenceCategory android:layout="@layout/custombanner" android:title="" />

6. Save the file and exit

7. Now make a .png banner for your ROM or find one on the internet. It has to be a .png
Resize your banner to 480x300 and rename it to custombanner.png

8. Place the custombanner.png in res/drawable

9. Recompile Settings.apk and Replace the settings.apk in your ROM

10. Enjoy :):good:

Thanks bro... it works on my Samsung Galaxy Mega GT-I9152, but I Think there's only one mistake with your guide bro... in step number 5 :
Code:
<PreferenceCategory android:layout="@layout/myawesomerom" android:title="" />
it should be
Code:
<PreferenceCategory android:layout="@layout/custombanner" android:title="" />
Please correct me if I was wrong...Thanks...
