    My first attempt at "Theming" this phone was almost a disaster. Lot's changed since last I messed with modding.

    Thank Goodness for TWRP & nandroids.

    I replaced the soft key icons in SystemUI, stripped out an android 6.0 ROM.zip file,put my modded SystemUI.apk in the .zip and flashed it.

    As I went to boot the phone from TWRP it was kind enough to tell me there was no OS installed, and ask if I really wanted to do that ... haha saved by a nag message!

    Quick restore and I'm back in business.

    Guess I got lot's o' learning to do.

    I saw a cleanrom on xda. This phone might get me back into themeing and tweaking.


    Great thing about this phone is the ease of getting it back to stock.

    Since you're feeling adventurous, you could use ADB to pull the systemui.apk, edit then push it back.

    The commands would be something like "adb pull systemui.apk". Then "adb push systemui.apk, adb rebbot".
    I can't remember the exact commands atm. But you would need to reboot after the push since android does not like the frameworks or systemui pushed through adb.

    I was thinking about that as my heartrate settled back down, I probably could have just flashed an image file through fastboot to recover...

    I'm a stubborn old fart... I'm gonna make me a flashable .zip. But you're probably right about using adb to push the file. Might even be able to do it using Root Explorer,

    I'm loving this phone so far, it surprisingly isn't hard to one hand most of the time.

    Most of the time, but there are things that are a bit of a stretch for me. I tend to use it 2 handed, though that may change once I have a sim and actually use it for a phone.
