    Hello! I'm trying to change the color for the phone apk icon (Touchwiz), green to blue. I tried using apktool for android because I don't have a computer but I have no idea how to use it. Maybe thats not the way to do it. Im new to theming so I'm clueless. LOL. Rush rooted, anykernel 3.2.2. Xposed installer has some options for touchwiz but I don't know if its possible for theming single apks. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Have you set system as rw then the apktool folder as the work space then import both frameworks? The icon your looking for is in seccontact.apk if I'm not mistaken

    You could solve that completely by installing and using Nova Launcher, it has the KitKat icons built into it and you can select to use the Android KitKat icons by pressing the options key while on your homescreen, then select Nova Settings > Look and Feel > Icon Theme, then select Google KitKat...


    Hope this helps, I personally like the blue phone icon for KitKat... :D :p
