Default [MOD] [L] Apple Emoji Replacement for Android L (Need Testers)

[Introduction]
Hello!
This is a mod that will replace Android's Default Emoji (introduced in KitKat I believe) with Apples Default Emoji.

I may be in a minority here but I personally recognize and prefer Apple's iOS themed icons over the Google, and most of my friends have either an android phone with an old version that will not show colour emoji or have iPhones. This means if I try to send a message with Android Emoji it could look completely different on the receiving end.

I found a solution for this by angelsel here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2563757

This worked great, except due to changes in fallback_fonts.xml between KitKat and L, if you flash the KitKat version, the phone will glitch and will not work correctly so I updated a flashable zip posted in the comments by Fusionalex and am sharing it here with you now

[Features Summed Up]
Replaces the stock Emoji with the Apple Emoji (used on iOS and OSX)

[Downloads]
(Also in the attachments)

Installer: http://www.mediafire.com/download/0o...+Android+L.zip

Uninstaller: http://www.mediafire.com/download/42...ninstaller.zip



[Screenshots Before and After (Large, sorry)]
 

Stock (Before) 1Apple (After) 1

Stock (Before) 2Apple (After) 2

Others:
Stock 3

Apple 3

NOTE
Although the Emoji's seem faded, that is the nature of Google Keep's notes, the actual Emoji's are in full colour, as shown here in Hangouts:
Full colour in Hangouts and all other apps





[Notice]
I HAVE ONLY TESTED ON NEXUS 5 BUT IN THEORY SHOULD WORK, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I CAN FIX IF IT DOES NOT
I am not a dev, I simply updated a mod that came with a guide that assisted in doing so, that being said, I will assist where possible and update this as much as I can.

This should work on Nexus 7 as well but untested, if not I can easily make a Nexus 7 version so let me know

If anybody thinks I am using their work and would like me to remove files please let me know - thanks!
