advance thank you!

Copy the apk on your pc whose icon you want to change. If it is system app then pull it or copy it from system/app to your pc. Then open the apk, then go to res/drawable-xhdpi. Then find the original icon and see its name. Then replace the name of the new icon to one you just saw. Then copy it to res/drawable-xhdpi. Thats it! If needed just sign the apk. Then push it to system/app( in case the app is a system app). Otherwise install it normally.
Dont just say thanks, Press it
