Hi!
I want make new theme for LG Launcher and I want change icons in settings app (Display, Sound etc). How do this without edit LGSettings.apk and without edit LGEasySettings?

I tried add strings in \res\xml\theme_resource.xml

Example:
Code:
    <AppIcon name="com.android.settings/com.android.settings.DisplaySettings" image="settings_display" />
    <AppIcon name="com.android.settings/com.android.settings.Settings$DisplaySettingsActivity" image="settings_display" />
    <AppIcon name="com.android.settings/com.android.settings.lge.PouchSettings" image="settings_display" />
    <AppIcon name="com.android.settings/com.android.settings.lge.ScreenMode" image="settings_display" />
But icons not change (2nd screenshot), icons change only in top tittle (1st screenshot)

    <AppIcon name="com.android.settings/com.android.settings.lge.ScreenMode" image="settings_display" />

That isn't possible with a home theme. It would be cool if you could though.
App icons change wherever they are shown including the title/action bar so that's why it changes at the top.


Questions belong in Q&A section, for future reference. Welcome to the forum.

When it comes to mod something you got to make some ultimate changes in order to get it your way.

Not possible. The only way I can think to edit the pngs without editing LGEasySettings.apk and LGSettings.apk is with an xposed module.
