Here are the 3 files for APKTOOL. Unzip them to a folder, toss in your apk. and framework-res.apk and go to town. When you get more comfortable you can setup paths.

Shift and right click inside your folder with the two above files.
Select Open command window here.

apktool if framework-res.apk
apktool d nameofapk.apk

when you are done editing

apktool b nameoffolder do not add .apk just the name of the folder created by the decompile

your output file will be inside that decompile folder under dist.

When do you need to decompile framework when editing systemui.apk? I have been decompiling and compiling systemui.apk doing anything with framework and i havent had any issues in a while. Are there certain things for systemui that require the framework ?

Apktool likes to load it. It doesn't decompile it. HTC devices require it.

If you use apk multi tool you don't have to worry about "installing" frameworks, fyi.

Correct. I am a firm believer that you should learn how to do it the manual way first.

I'm glad it was able to spread like it is. Honestly I expected this to get tossed aside by all the theme updates
