Re: How to include an icon pack with the theme creator Like (whatsapp, facebook, etc.)

You need to edit the file "skins\iconpack\res\drawable-laf1-xxhdpi\theme_icon_pack_drawable.xml" before exporting your theme. You'll need the main activities of the apps you want to replace the icon. There are apps on Google Play to read the main activities of the installed apps.

 

Example: If you want to add a custom icon for WhatsApp, you need to add the following line:

<item component="ComponentInfo{com.whatsapp/com.whatsapp.Main}" drawable="THEME_FILE::WhatsApp.png"/>

Where everything between ComponentInfo{} is the main activity of WhatsApp and the part after THEME_FILE:: is your *.png graphic that is located in your theme root folder.

That's the only thing you can do and everyone who wants to publish an icon pack has to do.
