[APP][ROOT][7 June] Pixel Launcher Mods - Icon Packs & more for STOCK Pixel Launcher

55LBn8el.png


**THIS APP REQUIRES ROOT**

Pixel Launcher Mods allows you to change icons, labels and widget sizes on the Pixel Launcher, as well as many other Launcher3 based launchers, including the Google Now Launcher

It's also working on Lawnchair, but is not recommended as that launcher has its own built in options

Available Tweaks:
- Change icons (Changing Individual icons as well as applying full Icon Packs supported, and applying from file too!)
- Change Labels
- Hide clock on the home screen (requires accessibility service)
- Double tap to sleep (via a widget, read the instructions in the "Tweaks" section of the app)
- Automatic dark theme for SystemUI and launcher during Night Light/Battery Saver (requires Android P)
- Modify widget sizes (down to 1x1 if you wish)

FAQ:
Q: My icons/labels keep reverting
A: This happens when an app updates. Whilst Pixel Launcher Mods tries to re-apply automatically, it doesn't always work. Open the app and hit "reapply" (or you can use the app shortcut if you're on 6.0+)

Q: Can you implement X feature?
A: Probably not. This app works off modifying the already available files - not the app itself. Whilst there are some mods you can make by editing the Shared Preferences (such as enabling/disabling the Google search bar in the app drawer, changing the top row of apps in the drawer and enabling the "bounce" animation), they get reset every time the launcher loads, so are useless. I can't implement icon hiding, icon size changes, grid size changes, overlapping widgets, or any of your other favourite custom launcher features - use a proper custom launcher for that

Q: This doesn't work on X launcher!
A: Is it Launcher3 based? Is it close to Launcher3 in terms of code? If not, this app probably won't work. If it's reporting it can't be used or giving errors, it's not close enough to Launcher3 and can't be used

Q: Not all my apps are showing in the app list/The app is telling me it can't load my apps
A: Go to your home screen, then open the app drawer and scroll to the bottom and back. Repeat this a few times, and re-open the app. You will need to repeat this any time you clear the data of your launcher.

Q: Can I backup/restore icons/changes?
A: Yes. Copy the entire "com.kieronquinn.app.pixellaunchermods" from /sdcard/Android/data/ to another device/save it somewhere and restore, then open the app and hit "Reapply changes". Your changes will be applied to the selected launcher.

Q: I've found a bug/App crashes/Launcher crashes
A: If you've found a bug specifically in my app, please post it in this thread, with a logcat. If it's with the launcher, try doing the same, but be warned it may not be fixed - I can't fix bugs in other apps caused by my own mods after all!

Which icon pack and what apps are you applying it to?

Make something yo change the icon size without change the dpi. Please

From the FAQ:

How do I revert my icons back to stock??

Currently you have to do it one by one in the app, or clear the data of both Pixel Launcher and this app (will reset your homescreen layout too). I plan to add a "reset all" option for the next update though

Dang! That sucks.

Additionally, there are a lot of bugs with applying icon packs. Example: I applied an icon pack, but not all of the icons were skinned. Example #2: I tried applying a different icon pack and it just didn't work. So, yeah.

Thanks!

This is probably down to the way the app works. It uses a highly experimental method of running Java code as root, so it's buggy. You may have to apply the icon pack a couple of times for it to work.

In terms of it not applying to all icons, which ones aren't skinned? Are they adaptive icons? If so, you need to either apply them manually or enable the option to apply to adaptive icons in the app's settings. This is disabled by default because 1.) adaptive icons are usually fairly well themed already, unless you're going for a totally different style and 2.) when their icons are changed, you get a glitched overlay when they're long pressed

    Just released an update, version 1.1. Changes:

    - Added option to clear all icon and label changes without having to clear data of the launcher (so without losing your homescreen layout)

    - Reapply option when launched from the app shortcut no longer appears in the recent apps

    Is on Labs so you can either update using the XDA app or download the APK manually from the labs page here
