This guide will help you activate "Round Icons" on your android device. Take note that round icon isn't provided by launcher but the app itself. Every app that supports round icon will provide two type of icons (normal and rounded), so what will we do is enabling it using the round icons provided by different OEMs by changing the framework-res.apk in our devices.



Requirements:
- OxygenOS Open Beta 3 based on Android Nougat 7.1.1
- Custom ROM based on Android Nougat 7.1.1
- Must be rooted!
- Root Explorer

Navigate to this location: \root\system\framework\

Replace the current framework-res.apk file to the modified framework-res.apk which can be downloaded here.
Note: It is recommended to copy it from recovery, but you can also copy it directy via root explorer but your device will restart instantly

Last is clear the pixel launcher data
App Info -> Storage -> Clear Data

What I only did is I edited the \framework-res\res\values\bools.xml and change the value from
<bool name="config_useRoundIcon">false</bool>
to
<bool name="config_useRoundIcon">true</bool>

This will trigger the launcher to use the round icon of any apps that are supported.

DOWNLOAD: framework-res.apk

Really?
It's literally the first requirement in the OP and it's also in the title.

No. I don't know if this icons apply only in the launcher or apply in everything, for example in recents apps.

To op: does it applies in recent apps too?

Using nova launcher and choosing a circular icon pack turns all icons circular, not just what is in your dock.

I did this mod some days ago on LineageOS. It applies everywhere except inside the Play Store.

For example, you will see the regular square like icon of Gmail on the app's page, but the circular icon will be displayed everywhere else once it's installed. Recents and all.

Yup, it's system-wide.
