Hmm that's probably why it's not working. Depends on how heavily LG changed the stock Settings app if it's ever (or at least in the near future) supported.

Well I think Cloudyfa did much more changes to this apk than LG. I will extract the LG stock apk from an old backup and upload it here, so you can take a look. But now it's 11pm in my timezone, time to sleep.

It adds the apps fine enough on mine, but the icons just show a white square. Though I'm running Samsung's infamously difficult to mod TouchWiz(5.1.1), so I'm sure that's why. Can't seem to find the current settings items for editing either. Only the main apps. I'm guessing I probably need to find out the names of the settings fragments to change the icons on those?


UPDATE: I was able to locate the settings fragments for my device by downloading an app called "Apk Editor" and opening "/xml/dashboard_categories.xml" inside the "settings.apk". Attempting to edit the icon for the fragment doesn't appear to work though unless I'm doing it wrong.



EDIT: Uploaded the settings app for my Samsung device too in case you wanted to take a look at it.

I'm seeing reports of this working on Touchwiz, but it's not for me. Vzw s4 5.0.1 . I've been waiting on someone to do this.

Excellent module; works like a charm, really looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Really easy to use when paired with floating-window modules (ex: skyolin helper, or XHFW3; see screenshots).

In future builds, can you add a button / option to 'kill settings & relaunch'?

Also, when choosing packages, the app list seems randomly ordered? Please add view app list in alphabetical order.

In order to edit an icon you should just enter the name of the tile and an icon. You can leave the app and fragment to launch fields empty. It only overwrites non-empty fields. Could you try that?
As for the white icon fields, it's probably trying to hook a method that doesn't exist in Samsung Settings, and thus can't replace the icon. That may also be why changing the icon is not working. Could you post your Xposed Log as well?

I will alphabetically order it in the next version
The gear icon in the top bar should kill and re-launch settings
If this doesn't work for you it may be because you have the settings app in the foreground.

I decompiled the apk and the manifest is showing targetMinVersion=22. Thinking that this is the problem. It also says 5.1.1......Looks like anything below API 22 isn't supported. Thanks for the quick response!

I tried just entering "Wi-Fi" for the name as that's how it appears in Settings, added an icon and removed the app and the fragment, but still no luck. Also, I tried changing the category of the Xposed Installer and the SuperSU that I added to "System" so that they would be added in with my other System ones to see if the icon would then appear, but now it just shows another green icon background instead of the white square. I've attached a log here too as requested.
