I was trying to remove the tecno theme app since its blocking some of the customization. After much tweaking around I realized removing that app is not possible since it is part of the settings app. Furthermore, deodexibg that ROM is a really big headache so what I'm going to do now is work on a cyanogenmod 11 KitKat 4.4.2 port and use that as a base rom
the challenge with going all cyanogenmod and stuff on Tecno is that they didnt release the sourcesfor their devices. this makes porting a ROM like that quite difficult. we're also working n something like that at the moment. for now, themeing and tweaking might have to do.
Deodexing the ROM shouldnt be so difficult. did you use Android kitchen?
True that doing without the source codes is really hard and time consuming but I'll work on that as well unless you guys come up with a ROM before I do that I will be able to use. I'm using xultimate. It usually doesn't give me any issues with other phones but I have no idea what's going on this time. Every time I go deodexing an app I get force closes so for now I'm finding alternative apps and theming those. Though I can't edit the pulldown area that way

Okay. It's quite awkward but I think I got it to work. I just had to push the deodexed framework files before the apks. Will report further

Yeah framework had to be deodexed first. Now onto the tough part of editing systemui and all that. By the way can you guys help me out with building a custom kernel? I have no idea how to do that

we're also working on the custom kernel @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-603.html . source codes are another hurdle.
as for the system ui, you can use http://uot.dakra.lt/kitchen/ to theme the framework.
then you can start theming settings.apk and others. just ensure you have a corresponding apk for us to theme them
shouldn't be difficult. our focus here is OS tweaks. that's where the work / stunt is

I agree on the source codes. What do you mean by corresponding apk? i'll upload when I am done and you'll see

Now I'm having another problem. I edited the strings.xml in the settings apk after decompiling it since i want to make tabbed settings. Now apktool is unable to recompile. I set up my PATH correctly, i have the android sdk but nothing. Whenever i try to recompile i get errors

Try using this settings.apk . it should be easier to mod. test it on the phone first before modding
