Default Permanent icon theme

Hi guys.. Is there an app that make permanent my icon pack? For example: my icon pack includes the Facebook icon; when I flash my icon pack, the Facebook stock icon will be replaced by the mine but if I do any update of the Facebook's app, my modified icon will be replaced by the stock one. What should I do to make my icon pack permanent even if I do updates? Thanks

I can't understand what exactly do you want, but try Unicon from the store. It changes permanently the icon of any app

I meant: if I change the stock Facebook app icon with an another icon made by me, then, when I'll do an update of the Facebook app, my custom icon will be replaced by the Facebook's original one. Now, to use unicon I have to create an app. How can I create an app with my custom icons inside?

not possible because an custom rom can include facebook app .. the app then is stored in system/apps by the rom cook.. if a update occurs the update replaces the app and stores it to /data/app .. if you replace an icon in data/apps the app will be removed and renamed .. for example to data/app/com-facebook~.apk so any icon in it is stock ...
