All mods are at the bottom of this post.

Here is a simple way to change system icons on your application drawer. I was looking for a guide to do this but I couldn’t find any so I gave it a try and it worked. So I decided to post the method here for like minded people who wanted to change the system icons in their app drawer and not only on the homescreen.

1. Download android-sdk from here
