Hello guys here is a small tut

very simple thing to add changelog in settings
you need stock deodexed settings.apk

1. First decompile settings.apk
2. Open res/values/strings.xml and add these codes

Code:
    <string name="changelog_title"><b>Changelog</b></string>
    <string name="changelog_title_summary">View recent changes in ROM</string>
    <string name="changelog_loading">Loading changelog...</string>
    <string name="changelog_error">Unable to load changelog</string>
    <string name="changelog_unknown">Unknown</string>
    <string name="changelog_version">Version</string>
3. Open res/xml/device_info_settings.xml and look for this code ( or your wish)
Code:
<PreferenceScreen android:title="@string/device_feedback" android:key="device_feedback" />

Add this code after or before that code
Code:
    <PreferenceScreen android:title="@string/changelog_title" android:key="changelog" android:summary="@string/changelog_title_summary" android:fragment="com.android.settings.rz.ChangeLog" />
4. Now Download this View attachment Settings.zip merge this code
5. Now compile and Decompile for Replacing public id
#0x7f090f8e #<public type="string" name="changelog_error" id="0x7f090f8e" />
6. Then after download this View attachment RZChangelog.txt ( Place this in System/etc )
edit what you need in the text file

Ohhh now its done

Thanks to Cyanogenmod

Thanks a lot for this guide

Its working perfectly on My Galaxy S5 G900H Running S7edge Port Rom

But when i apply dark themes i cant view text in Changelog
Only when i use light Bg themes i am able to view

Not a problem but any way to change color of text as per theme??
