So i pulled the apk from data/app.

Replaced the icon inside like usual

Put it back to data/app. And it goes missing from the app drawer.

Tried putting it in system/app, and it says Handcent has stopped working.

Something im missing?

Non system apps have to installed, not just pushed. Delete your old one first our you'll get a parse error.

Does nova change the app drawer icons? If so,how?

I thought it could only change home screen icons

Nova doesn't do app drawer icons, only homescreen. They do keep even after an update though. For OP, there is something odd about this app. Even just decompiling/recompiling with no changes, and the app closes immediately after startup. No errors or anything, and logcat returns no errors. My only advice is to use Nova Launcher- you will not lose one bit of functionaloty or appearance (exactly like stock) and will gain a ton of features.

Did you remember to sign the apk before pushing it?
