Requirements:
Installation:
  1. Install the app.
  2. Activate the module in the xposed settings.
  3. Change whatever you want.
  4. Reboot.

Permissions:
  • KILL_BACKGROUND_PROCESSES to restart the launcher
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE and WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE to load icons

Usage:
Simply open the app, wait for the list to load(which takes an eternity, i know) and either press the settings button to disable the audiofocus function or click an app to rename/change icon.
To avoid the loading, you can also go to the detail view by opening the app info and pressing on the name(thanks to MohammadAG!).
Changes will be applied when restarting the device.
The app can rename ANY app and change the icon of almost any(5 out of 150 apps).
And it is able to disable the audiofocus, now your music won't stop when you accidently open a youtube link.

Download:
  • Xposed Repo: Click
  • Via XDA: Under the post

Thanks to:
  • rovo89 for the xposed framework and his support! Danke!
  • MohammadAG for his support and allowing me to use his "Shortcut in App Info" module!

Features to come:
  • Make the audiofocus changable per app.
  • Integrate the resOverloader module by babuilyas with an ui.
  • Whatever you suggest(and is possible).
  • Was going to put it on google play, but well, 25 euros.
  • I'm going to translate it to german. ^^

Please read this as well:
As I pointed out before, i'm developing this as a hobby. I am not a developer, i'm going to school and doing this for fun.
Someone asked me whether I want donations. No I, don't, all I ask for is that you tell me if it helped you and a thanks(and please report all bugs).

Known Bugs:
  • Can't replace all icons. I had a better hook, that didn't use the ressource api, but it didn't work on launchers, only in normal apps. Unicon has this issue as well, so i think it's not my fault.

Changelog:

1.0:
  • Initial release
1.0.1:
  • Added a search field to the app list
  • Added an icon picker(only use icons, if they are shown correctly in the picker as well!)

I can't browse to any of my icon packs, so no icon changing for me. And changed some names, rebooted, but no visible changes (in Nova Launcher, nor in app)

Its meant for overriding unicon to example. Did you activate the module? Does the xposed log say something? Did you do a full reboot or only a soft? And are the settings showed correctly in the app after closing?

Settings are correct after a full reboot. In /settings /apps the changed names show up. But not in Nova launcher.

I don't understand what you mean regarding the icons. I don't use Unicon. I was in fact the one reporting the app for violating xda rules for it only had a payed version and thus used xda only as an advertising platform.

Apex launcher to example seems to cache the names, you may need to delete the launcher cache. Please also check if the name in the drawer is correct. When talking about unicon i meant that you can use my tool to override icons from packs you dont like.

Emptied Nova's cache and restarted Nova, but it didn't work. Guess I have to manually change names in Nova.

Icons are still a mystery to me. Please explain how to change a single icon with your app. I understand how Unicon works, even though I'm not using it. It's just two or three icons I want to change.

If I click 'change icon', a pop up appears asking for a path. I can't select any icons in one of the icon packs I've got installed, nor can I select the icons of preinstalled apps.

Found a solution for the names in Nova. In Nova settings go to Look and Feel, change icon pack and it refreshes all icons and names.

DONATE TO ME
Hi OP, will you share your source code as well? Since you don't want donations there is no need to hide your source code. Especially in the Xposed community it's not adviced to install modules without knowledge of the code. I know many, including me, who don't install closed source modules.

Atm you can only change the icon with a png or jpg, but it will be enhanced. I had to wipe the entire data of nova, so i think they are saving it differently, will look into this.

I thought i put it into the post, but i am going to publish the source once the logger is completet &(!) i understand how to use git without breaking my workspace. I can understand you, but i am really not interested in doing malicous stuff(lol).

EDIT: nova launcher has a special table in his launcher.db for storing the name and icon of an app. If you find a way to delete only this table the problem would be solved.
