    Hi Everyone,

    Yesterday I purchased a Oneplus 8 and pretty much straight away found something a little annoying with certain apps from the play store not having the correct icons.

    Here's the original thread - https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/...n-the-oneplus-8-please.1249793/#post-21783308

    I have made something to address this problem:

    The Problem

    Oneplus ship their phones with two pre-installed icon packs. Oxygen for round icons and Hydrogen for square ones. Not only do these contain round and square icons for their own apps, they also contain a few hundred third party ones. It's a little confusing as to why they do this, when the play store contains millions of apps. If an app gets a make-over and the developer changes their icon, the oneplus pack is instantly out of date. There is a bigger problem though, which is sometimes oneplus gets the wrong icon.

    This app is one example of many - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bskyb.nowtv.beta&hl=en_GB

    When you search the play store, you can see two apps called Now TV. The one at the top in orange and the one below in black.

    The oxygen icon pack contains the black one, whereas the hydrogen one contains the orange.

    Oneplus could address this issue by allowing the user to specify which icons use an icon pack, and which ones should be able to use their default. This request was submitted nearly two years ago here - https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/...when-using-an-icon-pack.880198/#post-21782255

    The Solution

    The solution would be for oneplus to simply use an icon pack which only contain icons for their own apps and not third party ones. This would force apps downloaded from the play store to use their own.

    Oneplus Oxygen Lite Icon Pack

    So I basically did just that. I downloaded the latest oxygen icon pack and removed everything apart from the bare minimum. Dymanic icons work just fine, and you'll never have apps using wrong or old icons. Every icon on the phone is round, the majority of the apps are already round so don't need to be included in the icon pack.

    as you can see, the Now TV app is using the correct icon (you know, the one the developer intended to be used)

    Streamlined, only the icons required are in the pack
