DevAlpha (BB10) expects a 150x150 application icon. However, the apk2bar resizes the 150x150 xhdpi drawable to 86x86, making the icon smaller.
Even if I open the bar (as zip, with an external tool) and overide the 86x86 with a 150x150 icon, once installed, the icon looks smaller than the other native apps. If I create a WebWorks apps then the icon has the proper size.
How can I fix this?

I also noticed this issue.
After apk2bar in the bar file I have the icon modified to 86x86.
I tried to add other icon files and modify the manifest like this:
but the result is the same. On the device the app icon looks smaller then the rest of the icons.
Is there any fix for this?

This issue is still open in tools 1.4. Passsing -os 10.0.9 does not make any difference.
In order to avoid pixelated icon due to resizing, you need to repack manually a 114x114 icon into the bar.

This is a feature that will be resolved in the 1.5 Gold SDK release. (Coming soon!) If an xhdpi 96x96 icon is present, that is what will be packed. This will scale correctly on PLayBook and BlackBerry 10. You can also include higher resolution icons and they will be scaled correctly.

The command line tools 1.5 fixes this problem and it will pack a 114x114 icon. There's only one issue: even if you have a 114x114 icon in the xhdpi folder, the icon will still be process and the quality of the image will decrease. As the icon has the proper size it should not be "touched".
