    Default Changing a specific icon to one from an icon pack.

    Hi, I recently got an Alcatel Idol X+ and I'm using aviate launcher in the alcatel stock rom with android 4.2.2, and I don't plan to root.

    - I am using the moonshine icon pack and since I don't have the stock google camera app, the icon in the pack doesn't apply to alcatel's camera app that I use. Since this style difference bothers me I would like to set the google camera icon from the moonshine pack as a icon for alcatel's camera app (without losing the previous one in case I want to go back to alcatel's launcher). Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Good tip. But the free trial version doesn't allow this and I do not have a credit card. Is there a free alternative to this app?

    I'm using Nova Prime, but have to ask, can you long press on the icon and pull up a menu that has the edit option? For me I just tap edit, it brings up lists of installed icons, I scroll and tap the new icon and then use the back button, then violá! New icon replaced on desktop. Again, that is on Nova launcher, but I thought it might help. 😊

    Nope, aviate is too strict about that. I only allows me to remove it from the favorites, collections or uninstall it. Thanks Anyway!

    This worked, but it just creates a shortcut with the new icon. But I can just ignore it. Thanks!

    Yes, I noticed that. It creates a new shortcut for you, you delete the old one and use the new one. Just an extra step. I don't do Android development, but I assume that changing the icon on an existing shortcut is much more work than creating a shortcut, and the extra work for the user is minimal.

    I just recently learned how to choose an alternate icon. I was using Simple Rounds and made several changes. Problem is, when I tried changing to Axis icon pack or any other one I had, the Round ones I changed remained in the new packs! How do you keep this from happening? What am I missing? It took me a long time to fix and I ended up having to delete both packs and reinstall. Thanks!

    I'm using Icon Changer Free and I changed an icon for an app that isn't on my homescreen. When I changed it, it created a custom shortcut on the homescreen, but left the default icon in the main app location. Is there anyway to change the icon in the main application area? You mentioned "delete the old one". Does that mean that I can delete the app or icon from the main app area and the new shortcut on the homescreen will still function? If so, how do I delete it?

If so, how do I do this?
