Smile [SKN] [Upd. 12.4.2010] WP7 Metro: Icons | Bootsequence | Lockscreen

Inspired by the news Metro Design of the Windows Phone 7 Series I'm working on some

Windows Phone 7 Metro Icons



By now I've done a few - see screenshots - that matches to (not all) my fav programs. The icons itself are transparent so they look best on a darker background. Currently they are 96 x 96 pixels - way enough for my 4x4 grid from coOkies hometab.

It's quite a heavy work because there are not many suiteable templates for clear icons around the web. So I will not promise to update them daily

Installation:
1) Download the ZIP from the link below and copy the extracted folder somewhere on your SD card
2) User JWMD Icon Changer or CSMI to replace the existing icons
3) Don't forget to save
4) Open Filexplorer and navigate to "Application Data" --> "HTC" --> "ProgLauncher" and delete all existing files in that folder
5) Softreset
6) You should be "Metro-ed"

Update 24.3.: 47 icons until now with help of pray2live! more to come!
Update 25.3.: some more nice icons by pray2live! check it out: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=19
Update 26.3.: 79 icons are available! Go and get them at the link below!
Update 29.3.: Additional icons by "got" here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...5&postcount=48 and here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=51
There's also a new boot splash by "optiknerv" here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2&postcount=54
Update 30.3.: 16 additional icons by "geralt" here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...7&postcount=66
Update 2.4.: additional icons by "Zitoun" and me added to the main download (link below). Now we have 165 icons!
Update 12.4.: with the help of many users and my own work we now have 238 icons! Credits go also to the guys in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=656322

Download Metro Icons (with german instructions) here: http://www.mobilitynews.net/?p=11006 (12.4.2010: downloaded over 21.000 times! BIG THANKS!)

Windows Phone 7 Startup Picture



You also find a new "welcomehead.png" for your device. Just download the zip attached (or visit my website - link below) here, extract it and copy the png to your SD card. Use Resco Explorer or Total Commander to copy it directly to the Windows directory on your device (overwrite the old one).

Download Startup Picture (with german instructions) here: http://www.mobilitynews.net/?p=11006


Windows Phone 7 Startup Animation


The perfect match


You'll find a matching startup animation for your device. Just download the zip (animated.zip) from my website, extract it and copy the gif to your SD card. Use JWMD Icon Changer ("Menu" -> "Bonus Features" -> "Change Animated Bootscreen") to get it working

Download Startup Animation (with german instructions) here: http://www.mobilitynews.net/?p=11006

Have fun and feel free to ask for icons for your programs...


The next step of my WP7S Metro design series is the

Windows Phone 7 Metro Lockscreen



You'll find a ZIP with a CAB and the matching background picture (you all know how to setup a lockscreen background ) here (with german instructions): http://www.mobilitynews.net/?p=11018

Update 25.3.: changes in display for next appointment (see screenshot above). Now it's possible to see more information there (as requested)
Update 13.4.: take a look at MyMetroLock! The perfect Lockscreen - with customization: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...85&postcount=1

Not everything is perfect with this - I'm still diggin into that whole stuff

Icons look good, but I really like your slider icons - are they also your work?

cool! really like them! some of them (mostly the text based) don't "match" to what I was thinking of - I'd really prefer symbols than plain text and on the other issue the circle was a little bit too small
If you want continue helping me PM me for the original Photoshop template...
