Track Down Android Icon Pack Issues with Icon Pack Debugger
Some elements of Android development are hard to debug. While logcat gives a variety of useful information, missing images in Android icon packs and themes are still hard to track.
If you are creating Android icon packs, XDA Forum Member sabeersas has a tool that you may find extremely useful. Icon Pack Debugger finds broken icons and duplicated files and saves the output as a log on the root of your SD card. The generated XML file specifies which kind of error takes place. It can be either __drawable(notfound) when an icon is unavailable or __duplicate(ComponentInfo) when a graphics is duplicated.
Usage of this app is very simple. Just open the Icon Pack Debugger, long press on the icon pack and select debug in menu. The log can be found on the SD Card, so you can pull it to your PC to find out what’s wrong.
Are you planning to make your own icon pack? Or maybe you have some duplicated elements that you want to get rid of? Icon Pack debugger will help you out. All you need to do is making your way to the Icon Pack Debugger application thread and give this handy tool a try.
