Not a big fan of the themes that LG offers. I was using Substratum + Andromeda on my Galaxy S8 Active and loved it. I'm wondering if Substratum + Andromeda will work on the V40?

It works kind of. I use Swift dark and it themes all the Google apps but not any of LG's system apps. I haven't encountered any bugs or issues so far.

I have an issue with the LG Icons.
I downloaded two Icon packs, changed them for a week, enjoyed it, but decided to change again.
Now regardless of any Icon pack choice, I only get half the Icons to change. Not even if I go back to stock version ... the half that don't convert back are now just an outline of the Icon and I can't find a way to convert them at all.

I experienced the same thing. Did a smart clean and restarted my phone. Worked!

Thank you ... but sadly, it didn't work for me.

It seems as if I lost the stock Icons altogether. :confused:

If I don't figure it out soon, I may factory reset the phone while I'm still exploring it and tweaking it.

That's "bull" :(
And on top of that, I can't purchase anything in Smartworld? It's not even available any more, the themes you pay for, I mean.
Have you checked so all permissions and "Modifie System" and "Install Unknown Apps" are granted?

I really don't understand it either. I've done all the above, yet, you no avail.

I found a free Home Screen & Icon App I like. I'll stay with that for a while till I figure out how to get the Stock Icon back.

I use Whicons. They're perfect for dark wallpapers, etc.

Same here. Though, oddly half my icons are stuck from the first set I tried from Smartworld. I cannot seem to recover the stock icons as of yet.... :confused:

System UI crashed

I've tried it with 2 different themes and System UI crashed twice and had to do a factory reset.
Luckily i had this phone for 1 day so i didn't have much data anyway.
