    nah. you can open it with notepad++

    your icon is named ic_launcher_phone.png right? you put it in drawable-mdpi? if you did both of those then it should work

    when you opened what? how are you doing this?

    are you adding the icon while its decompiled with apk manager then you recompile it and the icon didn't change? if so its cause your not deleting the old icon from the keep folder during the compile

    if all you want to do is add the icon just use 7zip and drag and drop the icon to the folder in the apk
