Last night I rooted and installed CyanogenMod 20150625 Nightly on my LG G3 D855. I also wanted to replace the emojis in the system to iOS emojis. I did that and it worked, except for one, the red heart.

It's not showing in the emoji part of my keyboard and when I see it in texts, it's a black, small heart.

The things I tried:

  • Replacing the font file with two diffrent iOS emoji files.
  • Trying to change the emojis with two Emoji Switching apps from Play Store.
  • Deleting files that had emoji in the file name.

Every step I did gave me the same result. Any solution?


I faced with the same problem, and I found this GUIDE, I hope it will help you too! http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/software/guide-fix-emoji-displaying-black-t3152314

You can also download the emoji packs from here: (the iOS pack worked me fine) http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2618523
