Default [MOD] BT FIX/Clean Settings.apk (Root users)

Clean Settings.apk & BT Fix Settings.apk - Feel free to take & use
[Looks like i was late on this one.. Credits to fuzzy & VsuperuserV lol]

What is this?

This is the stock settings.apk from esteem: zvd with the privacy (factory reset option) section removed and NO other alterations!!!
What is it for?

It's basically meant to save any root-user from ever making the mistake of doing a factory reset withing the device options
(Also can use to replace/fix themed settings bluetooth error)
Why is it called 'Clean Settings'?

Because it is pure stock and cleaned of the un-use-able privacy section

Why did I do this?

A. To save some people from the headache that can be caused by accidently using this setting lol
B. So hopefully the new roms & themes will include some variation of this MOD
C. For an Emergency BT Fixer
How did I do this?

- Use apktool to decompile 'Settings.apk'
- Open resulting folder to this directory (Settings/res/xml)
- Edit this file: 'settings.xml'
- Removed the line reffering to 'Privacy' from this < to this >
- Recompiled apk using apktool
- Open new apk with 7zip and took out the res/xml folder
- Placed new xml folder in original Settings.apk
- Magic!!
Where can you get it?

Right here:

Also: BT Fix Settings.apk
