Modify framework-res.apk

1) Get your favourite icons in .png (Rename them to same name as in framwork-res.apk)
2) Open your framework-res.apk (it is found in /system/framework/framework-res.apk) with 7zip
3) Go to res/drawable-xdpi (xdpi maybe different, it may be Idpi, mdpi, xdpi depending on phone resolution)
4) Delete white coloured icon file. (BE CAREFUL! DO NOT DELETE OTHER ICONS!!!)
5) Drag favourite icons in 7zip
6) Push framework-res.apk to /system/framework/*
7) Give permissions to it as rw-r--r-- (0644)

DONE!!!

Press Thanks if helped.

Thanks for your reply.

It was the System icons that have changed since Kitcat firmware upgrade, that I want to roll back?

Is there a way of rolling back to Android 4.3 (or what ever it was)? As there are problems with micro SD card when used with Helium Backup.

Thanking you,
Arthur Guy.

I don't understand what you mean by system icons. Can you post screenshots?

You would have to replace all the icons in the system files as well as the apps files. All google apps will have whiten icons from now on.
