what would it do with the original icon?
probably nothing. It is still inside your apk/installation

The programmatical handling of shortcuts in Android is a well known, widely used but not officially supported Android feature. It seems to work on the default launcher
So i guess it does work only if your app is the default launcher.

That's what I mean, but I would like it if it replaced my existing app icon rather than create a separate shortcut. Maybe if I could hide the other one it would be better , otherwise there would be no point just to have 2 app shortcuts
