How to modify your drawer's icons

You need:
- at least quad-core working mind.
- Rooted Flare S
- Root Explorer
- Winrar/ RAR
- APK that you want to modify.

First:

Get the APK that you want to modify from;
/system/app,
/system/priv-app, or
/system/framework

Example: Your project is Settings.apk

- Using Root Explorer go to /system/app/Settings.apk

Deep press and select Extract all, and then you can found the extracted files into

/storage/sdcard0/SpeedSoftware/Extracted

But if you already have the Settings.apk in your phone storage,

just change it's name into Settings.zip, and extract all.

Then go to extracted files /storage/sdcard0/SpeedSoftware/Extracted

In /res/drawable-hdpi/ you can see a lot of images, you can change any PNG files with any PNG files or

ICON you want.. Remember you need to replace exact size(pixels) of PNG image/icon.

All .9.PNG file should be replaced with the same king of .9.PNG file.

If you done replacing PNG/ .9.PNG images, ..

Zip these extracted files and rename again from to Settings.zip to Settings.apk (Don't ZIP all these files inside a folder)

META-INF
res
AndroidManifest
classes.dex
resources.arsc


Then push again the modded apk.
Don't forget the permission.

Note: Most of the icons store on /res/drawable-hdpi

If you want to modify the icon of launcher shorcut go to /res/mipmap-hdpi/and look for "ic_launcher_stock_app_name.png"

Example for Mms.apk = "ic_launcher_smsmms.png"

Learn how to change shortcut icons or launcher icons of any stock app

Step 1: Using Root Explorer extract your target application

Example: Mms.apk

Goto res > mipmap-hdpi
You will see an icon named
"ic_launcher_smsmms.png"

../storage/sdcard0/SpeedSoftware/Extracted/Mms/res/mipmap/ic_launcher_smsmms.png

edit or replace that icon with your costumized icon, (onepiece, dragonball, sharinggan or etc)

96 by 96 pixel.

Now zip all the files, then rename to Mms.apk

You can PUSH the Mms.apk and change the permission.
or make it flashable.
