2. Upload a small project. Its easier for sometime run and debug

3. You did not provide enough information, We dont now where the hard time of figuring out is. Explain your issue in detail

There is a lot of unnecessary code in your example, not just involving the timer. Here is a simple program ...
B4X:
Sub btnStart_Click
    lblTimer.Text = "10 seconds"
    timeRemaining = 10                          ' Set the time period
    tmr.Enabled = True                            ' Start the timer
    btnStart.Enabled = False                    ' Stop the user restarting the timer
End Sub

Sub tmr_Tick
    timeRemaining = timeRemaining - 1  ' Count down
    If (timeRemaining > 0) Then                ' Timer has not expired
        lblTimer.Text = timeRemaining & " seconds"
    Else
        lblTimer.Text = "Time's up!"        ' Timer has expired
        tmr.Enabled = False                      ' Stop the timer
        btnStart.Enabled = True                ' Enable the start button
    End If
End Sub

Note that I have used a label rather than an edittext because you do not want to the User to edit the timer message. Here is a complete mini-project if you want to try experiments.

timerTextView = Activity.GetView("timerTextView")

the GetView method expects an integer and not a string. you cannot get the view by name like you are trying to do.
this is your first mistake

you second mistake is to post code not in code format </> and also a simple example would help to help you.
