Hello there

Ive got a little question: Since there is no HTC Mozart ROM with cooked in custom icons (I hope there will be one somewhen) and the XBMOD CAB sender gave me an error ("Update Failed") (I had Deepshining 8017 ROM installed) and locked my device again, I thought about modifying my AppIcons with Advanced config, but I think I remember that this actually breaks the live tile function, which is of course a no go for me (hit me if Im not right )
So the next thing I thought about is replacing the default icons through Windows Phone Device manager or Windows Mobile Device Center.
Is it even possible to do this with these tools?

You trying to replace built-in tiles, or the icons from apps? The latter is easy on a full-unlock ROM like yours. Use a filesystem manager (WPDM or Root Webserver will make it easy to do this from the PC) and go to \Applications\Install\<GUID-OF-THE-APP>\Install\ and find the images you want to replace. Delete them and replace them with your own preferred ones.

If it's for built-in apps, then I do not know a way to solve the problem.

I dont want to replace entire tiles, but
Im trying to replace the Icons
from default:

to something like that:
(for example) without to lose the Live Tile functionality.
So do I understand your answer right (?): I cannot edit the System Apps Icons like SMS, but the ones from other apps like any app from the marketplace or homebrew ones.

All the icons for the built in apps are store in various DLL's in the /Windows folder. As of right now, there's no way to edit these unless you are cooking a ROM or creating a Custom CAB. The CAB probably isn't working because your ROM probably has a newer build # than his CAB does.
