Default 3 Item Start Menu - bigger, better icons

So I'm using the awesome ChuckyROM, but I really didn't like the 5 item start menu that came standard. I looked for and installed some 3 item start menu cabs, but found a whole lot of problems (item position, text colour etc), so decided to change it. I figure I've paid for an amazing phone with the best screen available, why not make the most of it.

The icons are 128x128, so you'll need a nice large, quality icon set (search 'firestorm').

Simply copy the .cab file to your phone and run it. Soft reset after installing.

This should work for both portrait and landscape. Enjoy.

Note: This is my first effort at creating a .cab file... I've tested it on my HD2 and it seems fine, but back up your Windows files first...
