To all and FInixNOver.

I think I need to give a warning. I strongly advise NOT to touch the notify.dll and notify.dll.0409.mui which FInixNOver stated is responsible for the bell/notify icon. I believe it is windows native icon. I tried to change it to a more colorful one and ended up crashing the phone VERY BADLY. So bad that it attempted to boot up itself and failed for like 10 times and finally it gave up and told me (yes, there's a black screen with words) that I have done something wrong and it had to erase the ROM and reinstall everything again. It didn't manage to reinstall "everything". TF3D was gone and it just gave me the Today screen with virtually nothing (no program, can't go to settings, can't sync, no network detectable even with sim card in). VERY LUCKILY, it didn't attempt to erase the internal harddrive and I happened to have a cooked ROM .nbh file there. So, I had no choice but to flash the phone from the internal harddrive. If I hadn't the .nbh file on the phone, my phone would be something close to a brick.

Yes, yes, I know I should be prepared for such kind of disaster. I just write this down to remind myself :) as I believe I almost bricked the phone.

I've installed your files, but the only icon which doesn't change is the bluetooth icon. Why ?

Also I made a cab file of your files. See attachement. Don't know it it works, because I haven't tested it myself.

I did some changes with the Activesync icon in which it with swirl like as the one on your desktop when you connect your device to your pc. I have done some changes to the battery metre in which looks nicer with gradient colors. I prefer the original outlook since it looks more like a metre to me

Also please find the dlls that I'm using and hope you people like them

P.S. my start icon is also attached since many of you have been asking for it... Cheers!

Hi MRE-net, that's because the BT related icons can't changed in those dll files. They're not .ico files but bmp files inside your /windows folder of your device.

To change them, simple copy the BMP files you got to your /windows folder to replace the old ones will do. I have attahced my BT related bmp files for anyone who are interested to try

Cheers!

DONATE TO ME
Hi! Has painted icons of the big top bar. Unfortunately it was possible to paint only available icons, instead of to replace
On insertions for Russia it is checked up, all works.

Great work.

I've only translate your file in my language, italian, editing with Reshacker the String Table n. 1.

This is the result.
