So what did you use to look into the code in framework.jar All classes there are inside .dex blob, which is not normal java code. Is there a tool you could recommend?

I would be looking into patching Settings.apk application on edge.senior so that it would not disable power saving preferences on that device
for framework.jar I used baksmali/smali.

To modify an apk look for a tool called apktool. it intelligently unpacks apk files and then uses baksmali/smali to decompile it.

So get all of those.

the only problem is that it can't decompile jars and dexes into java code, it decompiles into a weird mishmash of java and assembly called smali for lack of a better term. It's not very well documented, but just googling smali to find the tools will get you some examples.
