Question [QUESTION] Change settings icons with theme. How make it?

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:
Select 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)

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.

Is it possible to when apply theme with code from LGEasySettings.apk and work this from theme? In other words, insert LGEasySettings.apk in theme.

When it comes to mod something you got to make some ultimate changes in order to get it your way.
If you don't wanna mess around, then there is one solution: go to Hogwarts become a magician


Maybe Levi Strauss should sue Apple too. He came up with the single button concept on pants first. Apple copied him...........

HTC - was great
Moto - is good'ish
LG G2- the best phone i had (for now)

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