[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
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
6) You should be "Metro-ed"
47 icons until now with help of pray2live! more to come!
