    put a metamorph together for anyone who wants to change the app drawer icon easily on Launcher2..

    example:

    [​IMG]

    just extract the folder from the zip and put it in the AndroidThemes folder..change the icons in drawable-hdpi to whatever ones you want (theres a superman logo in it, just pick your icons and rename them the same as the 3 it comes with) and apply.

    I tried it and metamorph said file could not be read something may be missing.but I could go on file manager and see the images so im not real sure what the problem is.it may work for you with no trouble but didn't for me.which I may have done something wrong too.

    guys, let me know what exactly helix launcher is called by its apk... like helixlauncher2.apk?

    i'll put up one for that when i get home from class...unless you wanna do it yourselves you need to open up the .thm file in notepad and change launcher2.apk to whatever you need it to say. that has to match up with the folder above the .thm file..

    it has to be in /system/app to be metamorphed...and you'll need to change launcher2 to the com.helix...in the folder and in the .thm file which opens in notepad.

    I'm a little confused. The metamorph worked but thinly thing it changed is the middle apps button. The superman logo is there with no background behind it. Am I doing something wrong?

    CoyG, this is a morph to only change the apps button. you can keep the superman, or find your own icon, make sure it's 72x72 and replace each of the 3 images in the drawable-hdpi folder with the same icon. make sure you keep the 3 separate file names.

    Launcher2.apk is what it would be called. if its the helix launcher then you need to change it, and actually i'll do that right meow...

    *helix launcher 2 morph added to original post, still just extract folder from zip and put it in AndroidThemes*

    all you have to do is take the HelixLauncher2 folder thats in the .zip and put it in the androidthemes folder..

    you do have helixlauncher2 in /system/app right?

    Yup I moved it to system app then extracted the file and then ran metamorph. I can go in to the folders and see the files but when I extract and go into metamorph and look at it they are not there

    when you go to the HelixLauncher2 in metamorph you click on the .thm file with the green m to the left of it. then hit apply all and hit home, you pick helix again and it should be themed with your icons or the superman one if you didnt change them.
