    Drawer Icons

    I have been succesful with changing my drawer icons by just changing the .png in each .apk in system/app, but the only one that won't change is the phone icon.

    I change the .png in the phone.apk (drawable-hdpi) but even tho I know my modified .png is there, it still shows the original icon in the drawer after reboot.

    Has anyone been able to change their phone icon? Is the .png for this in phone.apk or another .apk file?

    Hey I have been wanting to fully customize my icons and all I found so far was that app (sorry forget the name) that makes customized 'shortcuts' but only on your home desktop. I really want to actually change the apps icons themselves. Could you explain the process breifly. I have root explorer so I think i am good to go...

    You need to use the computer. Copy over you're apk's and rename them to .zip . Then open them up and go into drawable-hdpi. Then find the correct png, and change it.

    Sure. Lets do a easy one. Open up root explorer, and to to " system/app " (Turn on R/O up top). Copy for example "Gmail.apk" to sdcard. From here mount your phone, and make a copy of "Gmail.apk" so you have a backup. Change "Gmail.apk" to "Gmail.zip" extracted it. Open folder, go to res/drawable-hdpi and you will see all the .png files in there. Change the icon with the original one in here. Make sure you rename it the same as the original one.

    After all this just set it back "Gmail.apk, and move it back in the " system/app" using root explore. Just overwrite the old file since you made a backup. After this hold the "Gmail.apk" down and click on permissions and check all of them. Reboot and it should show up.

    The only one I can't seem to change is the phone icon. I change the .png icon in the "Phone.apk" but the orginal not the modded one still shows up in the drawer. Its got to be in another ".apk" somewhere but I don't have a clue where.

    Yup, thought that too, but those appear to only be for the notification bar.

    The same icon is in both contacts.apk and phone.apk For me phone.apk changes the icon for the phone (I have been changing it around quite a bit recently for the helix launcher). Doesn't hurt to try contacts.apk though.

    Contacts.apk it is still named ic_launcher_phone.png or something along those lines.
