Android on my Nokia 6 sets circle as the default app icon shape. I discovered some time ago how to enable developer mode and switch to squircle, which gives a larger icon surface with more information.

Unfortunately, every time I restart my phone, it defaults back to circle, and I have to manually change it to squircle again.

Is there a way to lock this setting so it won't reset when the phone is reset, so I won't lose my squircles?

    That depends o the used launcher app. I use Nova launcher which allows to select the icon shape persistently.

    Like Robert said, this depends on the launcher app (though this could also be implemented using icon packs I suppose). Look into your launcher settings. If you don't find what you are looking for then replacing the launcher app is the only way forward.

Just use a launcher. Nova launcher is a good launcher. But there are more online.

  • do you have links to Nova or others that you'd suggest? Commented Dec 30, 2022 at 15:23
