Icons not changing with theme

Screenshot_20200117-152120_One UI Home.jpg

I keep going to change my theme and it still displays the old theme I had icons. I have deleted both old theme and old icons I had, cleared cache and they are still there. How do I get rid of them so they match and change to my current theme?

Re: Icons not changing with theme

Hi there!

 

Have you confirmed your device is currently up to date? I see you have mentioned you have already cleared the cache. Have you tried wiping the cache partition?

 

The system cache partition stores temporary system data. It's supposed to allow the system to access apps more quickly and efficiently, but sometimes things get cluttered and outdated, so a periodic cache clearing can help make the system run more smoothly.


Follow these steps:

 

- Turn off the device.
- Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
- When the Android logo displays, release all three keys.
- An ‘Installing system update’ message will show for 30 – 60 seconds before the Android system recovery menu options appear.
- Press the Volume down key several times to highlight wipe cache partition.
- Press the Power key to select.
- Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Power key to select.
- When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.
- Press the Power key to restart the device.

 

Your phone will take a little time booting up after the cache partition is wiped off of its contents as it will rebuild or recreate those caches. Don’t be alarmed if the phone gets stuck on the logo for a minute or two after this just don’t turn it off so that what was deleted will be replaced successfully. So, wait for your phone to become active. Don’t worry, this procedure is very easy and safe to do. You won’t damage your phone just by wiping the cache partition.

Phone is up to date and just did this and it still didn't fix it.

Thank you for confirming that. Since wiping the cache partition didn't help, I would recommend factory resetting your device to its default settings. Make sure before doing that, you back up the device to your Samsung cloud so you won't lose any important data.
