Default Phone On 4.1 but showing 4.0 Icons...

I have nova launcher and a kit kat theme but when I click recent apps, all the icons that show are for GB. I absolutely don't want GB icons even when they should be switched to the themed Kit Kat icons. The problem I think was I did a restore on the phone and it was already rooted and BL unlocked.

First off, 4.0 is ICS, not GB. Do you have an XTheme active? What kind of restore did you do?

My fault... I'm used to seeing the themes the way they show up with the themes but now it's not. In the app drawer it takes to the icons but it's in the recent app's view and when I'm closing apps it shows the default icons not the theme icons.

Icon pack will only work within the launcher.

Nova icons will not change system wide, ie they won't change in recent apps menu. If you want to use an icon pack system wide, I suggest looking up Unicon on the Play Store. Also, Unicon requires the Xposed Framework to be installed. Look it up

I had an issue with xposed framework a little bit ago where it started fc all my apps on startup and I couldn't get past it. Kind of learry about re-installing it at this point.
