That's what I wanted to do. So it's not possible? Is there a location for the icons that I can access with root to replace it?

U can. U have to find the icon image and change it. I used to change the stock icons of different roms using number of tools myself when i had nexus and s3. But it's too much work.

Cool. I'll go digging for it when I get some free time, have a feeling it may take a little while lol. Thanks

I downloaded CleanRom to my pc and used 7zip to find the file (its in "LGHome_Theme_Optimus.apk"). Look in the "drawable-xxhdpi" folder for the png labeled "lg_dockmenu_ic_allapps.png" Then replace it with whichever png you like. You should name it whatever the original png in the app was named.

Can I just copy the lghome_theme*******.apk to my pc, make changes(png, name), then copy paste it to the phone in the proper location, change permissions, and good? Do I need to unzip, make changes, re-zip? Just looking for a little clarification, as this would be my first time doing this kind of mod.

Thanks for any help.
