Can't set push notifications' small icon - ionic native push

Hi guys,
I’m encountering this problem while developing my app.
I just installed the ionic native push notification plugin and the cordova phonegap push.
Notifications work but i can’t set the small icon

Well, the small icon is set always with the default app’s icon (that is not optimized for Android 5.0+ notifications, cause it’s not monochromatic).
So i’ve used this helper ( for generating good notification icons that i’ve called ic_notify.
These images are under the following path: /resources/android/ic_notify

and i added them as resources under my config.xml :

        <resource-file src="resources/android/ic_notify/drawable-mdpi-ic_notify.png" target="app/src/main/res/drawable-mdpi/ic_notify.png" />
        <resource-file src="resources/android/ic_notify/drawable-hdpi-ic_notify.png" target="app/src/main/res/drawable-hdpi/ic_notify.png" />
        <resource-file src="resources/android/ic_notify/drawable-xhdpi-ic_notify.png" target="app/src/main/res/drawable-xhdpi/ic_notify.png" />
        <resource-file src="resources/android/ic_notify/drawable-xxhdpi-ic_notify.png" target="app/src/main/res/drawable-xxhdpi/ic_notify.png" />
        <resource-file src="resources/android/ic_notify/drawable-xxxhdpi-ic_notify.png" target="app/src/main/res/drawable-xxxhdpi/ic_notify.png" />

This is my push plugin configuration:

  private pushSetup(){
    const options: PushOptions = {
      android: {        
        senderID: 'XXXXXXXXXXX',
        icon: 'ic_notify',
        iconColor: '#228DFE',
        sound: true,
        vibrate: true,
        clearBadge: true,
        clearNotifications: true   
      ios: {           
          alert: 'true',
          badge: true,
          sound: 'false',
          clearBadge: true         
   const pushObject: PushObject = this.push.init(options);  
     (notification: any) => console.log('Received a notification', notification),
     error => console.error('Error with Push plugin', error)
     (registration: any) => console.log('Device registered', registration),
     error => console.error('Error with Push plugin', error)
   pushObject.on('error').subscribe(error => console.error('Error with Push plugin', error));

This is my ionic configuration:


   ionic (Ionic CLI)  : 4.1.1 (C:\Users\Alexiano\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\ionic)
   Ionic Framework    : ionic-angular 3.9.2
   @ionic/app-scripts : 3.1.11


   cordova (Cordova CLI) : 8.0.0
   Cordova Platforms     : android 7.1.0
   Cordova Plugins       : no whitelisted plugins (21 plugins total)


   Android SDK Tools : 26.0.2 (D:\AndroidSDK)
   NodeJS            : v10.9.0 (D:\Software\NodeJS\node.exe)
   npm               : 6.2.0
   OS                : Windows 10

And finally this is my cordova’s plugin list:

I tried also changing the icon property to ‘res://ic_notify’, ‘res://ic_notify.png’, etc… nothing…
