Mods Removing stuff in the settings menu [Root only]


Android Expert

I've searched but since I really am horrible at searches I probably overlooked or missed some posts that may be concerning this already.....for that I appologize.

The short of it I have a rom that has 3minit baked into the rom, and I would like to remove it and just use the stock battery. That's all I want to do, I don't want to mod any part of the rom except for that part.

Further explination:

Phone is a sprint S4 sph-l720T.

The easier stuff is the better for me, so if we can keep this on lamens terms it'd be useful for me, so what I'm after is...

I am rooted, and have a TW rom, but I want to make it my own so ta speak and I won't be releasing this to anyone.....even then I will contact the original maker of the rom and get permission to do so and give credit where it is do...to the rom maker.
So I have deleted said apps in system/app and system/priv-app, all but what's stock. One thing though I cannot seem to get rid of is 3minit battery app. There is a 3minit settings apk and a 3minit updated apk.

I would like to get rid of 3minit because I really don't use any battery modding at all, I'm fine with stock. I have tried removing it from the system/priv-app folder but since it's baked in and the stock battery is not there (I'm guessing) I get a I think it was a systemui fc loop and the rom is unusable then. If I leave the 3minit apps in the rom works fine.

So, is there a way around this, perhaps files I need to edit and perhaps image files I need to grab and put in said folders?

Keep in mind I'm rather new to some of this stuff, although I have edited the quick panel icons of another rom I had once, but that's been so long ago I probably forgot some stuff.

I don't want to edit the entire rom, just this part, the rest of the rom is fine and working, I would just like to remove the 3minit mod stuff and use a stock battery icon.

Any help, and most of all patience would be grateful.
