[GUIDE] [Advanced] How to make an IconPack for Samsung Touchwiz [JellyBean]

by M_J_Nazari 

I found the simple way to change the icons and names of applications on Samsung's TouchWiz UI.
you need to know about how to edit an apk and also how to find the application's package and activity names.

0-Download: CSCAppResource.apk
1-Decompile CSCAppResource.apk
2-add all your favorite icons to drawable folder.
3-Compile and Sign it.

already , you have CSCAppResource.apk with all icons , you added from above steps.

now , you need to decompile your edited CSCAppResource.apk file, after decompiling, goto Values folder and open the public.xml file vith Notepad++.

now you will find it like this one,, this is an example;

PHP Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><resources>
    <public type="drawable" name="amestris_test" id="0x7f020000" />
now create a xml file and paste below lines into it.

PHP Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?><cscappresource>

save it with CSCAppResource.xml file name.

now we want to add Icon for specific application. for example we want to change the icon for Browser.

the Browser application activity name is " ".

now we will define the Icon for Browser activity. see below example.

back to "CSCAppResource.xml" file and this line between cscappresource tag.
PHP Code:
<item name="" iconid="7f020000"/> 
at final we have the "CSCAppResource.xml " like this one.
PHP Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?><cscappresource>
<item name="" iconid="7f020000"/>
save the file and copy CSCAppResource.xml and CSCAppResource.apk to this folder:
** you need to create "appresource" folder, if not exists.

give permissions to folder and files then reboot your phone.
