Thumbs up [TUT]How to replace start menu icons

i no longer have this device but willing to help

TO CHANGE START MENU ICONS

SKILL: EASY
TIME: 10 - 20 MIN
  • YOU NEED RESHACKER
  • PULL THESE .dll FROM YOUR PHONE
  • oemicons.dll
  • SP_ProgramIcon.dll
  • SM_ProgramIcon.dll
  • FolderIcon_SP
BEFORE YOU START MAKE SURE YOU BACK THOSE FILES UP

JUST OPEN RESHACKER AND OPEN ONE OF THESE FOUR DLL'S EXPAND ICON GROUP AND RIGHT CLICK ON THE ICON YOU WANT TO CHANGE HIT REPLACE RESOURCE AND LOOK FOR THE ICON YOU WANT AND PRESS REPLACE SAVE THE .DLL'S PUT THEM IN \Windows RESTART AND YOUR DONE

TO REPLACE THESE ICONS YOUR IMAGES MUST BE .ICO

THE MAIN ONE U GOT TO CHANGE ARE IN SM_ProgramIcon.dll SP_ProgramIcon.dll AND FolderIcon_SP

oemicons.dll HAS A FEW ICONS LIKE CALL LOG BUT IT WORTH IT TO CHANGE
EVERY ICON IN THESE FOUR .DLL'S THAT WAY WHEN YOU PUT THEM IN YOUR PHONE EVERY ICONS IS CHANGED

THERE ARE TONS OF ICONS IN DEVELOPMENT THREAD
