I like your idea of changing the icons to match the new style, that's what I was looking for but the icons are still ugly (sorry). I'll design ones and post them here for your to include them on the next update. I'm a designer but I know nothing about the android world together we can come up with something maybe
EDIT: done
Dolphin:

Flit:

Google settings (although i think it should be hidden):

Google keep:

Keyboard switch:

Play Store:

Arabic Support
Does your ROM support Arabic?

Stock 2.5 was the last ROM supporting Arabic. It included the proper Arabic fonts. I tried adding them to the zip file for stock ROM 3.1 but it did not work.

Would it be possible for you to release a ROM that supports Arabic? Thanks.

Oh wow those icons are amazing! I'll integrate them in a new version 3.1 of skynet. I'll make sure to put credits for you, and a link to your profile when I add these icons to my rom

Could I request a few more icons? UC Browser, Quickpic, ES File Manager, BBC News, Google Search, Voice Search
edit: infact i could just use the dolphin icon for uc browser, not like anyone would notice
