how to get running applications icon on android programmatically

Below here is my code but i am getting default android launcher icon for all running applications:

PackageManager pm = getPackageManager();

ActivityManager am1 = (ActivityManager) getSystemService(Context.ACTIVITY_SERVICE);

List<RunningTaskInfo> processes = am1.getRunningTasks(Integer.MAX_VALUE);

if (processes != null) {
for (int k = 0; k < processes.size(); k++) {
// String pkgName = app.getPackageName();
String packageName = processes.get(k).topActivity
.getPackageName();
Drawable ico = null;
try
{
String pName = (String) pm.getApplicationLabel(pm
.getApplicationInfo(packageName,
PackageManager.GET_META_DATA));

ico = pm.getApplicationIcon(pName);

}
catch (NameNotFoundException e)
{
Log.e("ERROR", "Unable to find icon for package '"
+ packageName + "': " + e.getMessage());
}
icons.put(processes.get(k).topActivity.getPackageName(),ico);
}

Answer

just replace this line

ico = pm.getApplicationIcon(pName);

to this

ico = getApplicationInfo().loadIcon(getPackageManager()); 

EDITED full code :

public void getAllICONS() {

    PackageManager pm = getPackageManager();

    ActivityManager am1 = (ActivityManager) getSystemService(Context.ACTIVITY_SERVICE);

    List<RunningTaskInfo> processes = am1
            .getRunningTasks(Integer.MAX_VALUE);

    if (processes != null) {
        for (int k = 0; k < 5; k++) {
            // String pkgName = app.getPackageName();
            String packageName = processes.get(k).topActivity
                    .getPackageName();
            Log.e("packageName-->", "" + packageName);
            Drawable ico = null;
            try {
                String pName = (String) pm.getApplicationLabel(pm
                        .getApplicationInfo(packageName,
                                PackageManager.GET_META_DATA));
                name.add("" + pName);
                ApplicationInfo a = pm.getApplicationInfo(packageName,
                        PackageManager.GET_META_DATA);
                ico = getPackageManager().getApplicationIcon(
                        processes.get(k).topActivity.getPackageName());
                getPackageManager();
                Log.e("ico-->", "" + ico);

            } catch (NameNotFoundException e) {
                Log.e("ERROR", "Unable to find icon for package '"
                        + packageName + "': " + e.getMessage());
            }
            // icons.put(processes.get(k).topActivity.getPackageName(),ico);
            icons.add(ico);

        }
    }
}
