Tutorial [Q] Broken icon background transparency (4.2.2)

I have this issue for a long time by now. I thought it is just the Play Store but no, I noticed it in the facebook messenger too.
Icons and smileys has black background, and in messenger when I use the bubble head thingy, smiley's background is transparent, you can actually see the things behind it, like my home screen wallpaper.

I googled it, but no fix for it, even updated the Play Store. Factory reset did not help. I even replaced the ROM with a new one, but this problem appeared again. (4.2.2, root) I had this problem before the root acces too. I really don't know what to do.
And other forum peeps said the bug only appears on Mediatek devices...

Notice the icons in the Store, and in the Messenger (black background and home screen)

It happens on my phone too and I have no idea why or how to solve it.
I have a Mediatek based phone.
