No. Read the FAQ in the OP, I can't add features I'm just editing what's already there

There already is, press the menu button in the dialog that opens when editing an icon, you can revert it.

Nexus 6P
Ex Oreo rom with pixel 2 launcher
magisk
Adaway

Magisk is granting root access
Tested 5-6 different icon packs
Am using multi-user (but on primary)
Gave up after 5 min

Did it apply after you'd given up? Sometimes it applies but the dialog stays open

After that, delete the Pixel launcher cache, force close it and then when you hit the home button, all icons will be the stock ones.

Worked fine for me.

Correct, that's basically what the revert all option would do when I add it (that also resets labels)

Is it possible for you to add a hide feature?

Btw, also I'd like to use a file explorer for changing icons instead of my gallery because I've put some icons in a ".nomedia" map

This app needs root. Why would I require root if it wasn't needed? I don't restrict it for fun you know.

What do you mean? It restores the SELinux config of the database after editing it, it works fine with SELinux enforcing

No to the hide feature (read the FAQ), I'll see about the file explorer

Thanks for this. Working on my Swift with crDroid 8.1. Using the Pixel Launcher Mod with this and it works wonders. No longer have to hassle myself in choosing icons in Google Launcher Icon Changer. lol

Doesn't work. It only applies the pixel icon pack and won't let me use candycons. Also crashes most of the time when I try to apply a different icon pack. Awful

Launcher redraw
The mod works perfectly well BUT there is too many redraw especially when you have many apps opened and you hit the home button.

device details: Google Pixel XL, Stock Oreo 8.1, Rooted with Magisk
