    I'm using the Google Now launcher on my S7, and it along with a Marshmallow theme from the Samsung theme store has given the phone a nice stock Android look. Unfortunately, the icon pack included along with the Marshmallow theme hasn't applied on GNL. I know GNL doesn't natively support icon packs but has anyone figured out a workaround for this? The TouchWiz icons stand out otherwise.

    And when I say icon packs, I mean in the app drawer too, not just modded shortcuts on the home screen.

    Use a different launcher like Nova or you can change home screen icons with icon changer.

    I want to continue using GNL, even if I can't change the icons.

    or you can change home screen icons with icon changer.
    Which one?

    It's just called icon changer in play store.

    Like I said, I don't want just modifies shortcuts on the home screen. Using icon changer doesn't affect how it looks in the app drawer.

    Why are you set on sticking with GNL? There are better launchers with more features.

    That's not really what I was asking

    I don't think that exist. The only thing I've come across is for home screen icon placement. Who knows, I've been wrong before. Awesome Icons is great though.

    I am also using the GNL and had an issue when using the Samsung Themes. When I applied on of them, it changed my icons; but I couldn't them to change back when I changed to a different theme. I tried changing to different themes & then deleted them all; but the icons (phone, calculator, contacts,etc) were all still messed up. I ended up having to factory reset my phone to put everything back. I hope someone has a solution.

    You can't do what you want with GNL. Simple as that. Changing icons in the app drawer too is a launcher feature and GNL simply does not provide that.

    Fyi for anyone googling this or looking for this still. I had my s7 edge display scaling set to condensed to fit more on the screen. Once I changed it back to standard (with the material Samsung theme applied) and rebooted the correct icons appeared. Could be that the change forces the launcher to recreate icons or clear it's cache etc.

    Also, stock android lovers, install good lock from the galaxy app stores to bring the stock android notification shade and status bar into your s7. Got a very stock feel now with Samsung material theme, Google now launcher and good lock.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Note 5 user here. Thanks for this but it didn't work for me. I'm still seeing the touchwiz icons with the material theme applied. Should I switch between touchwiz launcher and Google now launcher a few times?

    Thanks
