Hello,

I have made some simple icons for apps because it was annoing that some app's icons didn't look like the entire theme .
The small icons from the "start menu" have already the background colored because with the transparent background don't get colored like in the home screen, after the accent color .

Needed Tools:

- Windows Phone Device Manager
or
- Advanced Explorer
- Desktop Host





Install Guide
Video Guide

More easy way to install the icons is with Device Manager of TouchXperience (video guide above):

1 - download Icons (the ones with - SMI) and ProductId
2 - unzip the icons
3 - Open Windows Phone Device Manager (sync with the device) and open Explore Files and Folders\Applications\Install\
4 - Open the unziped folder and open the folder with the color you want
5 - Select all (or select the ones you want) and drag them to Windows Phone Device Manager - Explore Files and Folders\Applications\Install\
6 - wait till all folders are copied
That's it !!!




For those that can't use the method above, try the old ones below:

First Method to Install (for one icon at a time)

I will make an example for Advanced Explorer with Orange color
1 - download nichitandrei - Simple Icons.zip and Product Id
2 - unzip
3 - open nichitandrei - Simple Icons\Orange code - f09609\Advanced Explorer\
4 - copy .PNGs to Desktop Host\bin\UploadRoot
5 - look in the Product Id.txt and see what code has the app of which icon you replace (for Advanced Explorer - DEA9333A-E91C-44ED-BB1F-2400CD9E824E)
6 - go to the phone and open Advanced Explorer go to remote page and refresh it till you'll see the icons from the UploadRoot
7 - Copy the icon in Applications\Install\DEA9333A-E91C-44ED-BB1F-2400CD9E824E\Install\

And that's it


Second Method to Install (for more than one icon at a time)

I will make an example for Advanced Explorer with Orange color
1 - download nichitandrei - Simple Icons - SMI.zip and Product Id
2 - unzip
3 - copy Orange folder (from nichitandrei - Simple Icons - SMI\Orange\) in Desktop Host\bin\UploadRoot\
4 - open nichitandrei - product id.txt and you will see the product id (for Advanced Explorer - DEA9333A-E91C-44ED-BB1F-2400CD9E824E)
5 - if you don't want to change the icon for Advanced Explorer, in Desktop Host\bin\UploadRoot\Orange\ delete the folder named DEA9333A-E91C-44ED-BB1F-2400CD9E824E
6 - after you delete all the folders you don't want, go to the phone and open Advanced Explorer go to remote page and refresh it till you'll see the Orange folder from the UploadRoot
7 - open Orange folder and you'll see the product id folders (like DEA9333A-E91C-44ED-BB1F-2400CD9E824E)
8 - select them and copy them in the Application\Install\ (try to not copy more than 7 at the time. From my experience Advanced Explorer blocks)
9 - wait till all folders are copied





If you need other icons leave a list with the name of the app



Thanks

- to my wife for her Support and Understanding


Attention!!! v2 contains just the new icons. To have it all download both v1 + v2



Download

- nichitandrei - Simple Icons.zip
- nichitandrei - Simple Icons - SMI.zip
- nichitandrei - product id.txt
- nichitandrei - Simple Icons - v2.zip
- nichitandrei - Simple Icons - SMI - v2.zip
- nichitandrei - Product ID v2.txt



Feel free to leave a feedback or simply press Thanks button to show your appreciation


I know, I know I posted this on HD2 Forum, but I was wrong, because this is for all WP7 devices and I know that [ICONS] must be posted on THEME Sub-Forum but on WP7 there is no Theme Sub-Forum

I don't get it, weren't you bothered that when you have a theme (e.g: blue, orange, red ect) the icons had different colors or you don't like these.
No feeback, no thanks I'm a little dissapointed... At least for the fact that I implemented the ideea of changing the icons



This post is for future updates. If I will need

Ok, I figured out a method for your problem:
Download "Icons by nichitandrei.xap" and open it with Winrar and copy the folders with the icons you want to install then save and close.
Install "Icons by nichitandrei.xap" like any other app.
In your phone, after you install "Icons by nichitandrei.xap" it will open a blank page from which you can not go back, so just press the windows button (to go to homescreen).
Open a file explorer that works for you and go in applications/install/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000/ and here you have all the folders with the icons you wanted.
From here you can copy/paste like in the methods to install from above.

If you refer to icons made by me, you can find them in the buttom of the first post. If you want the original one, you can find them in the app xap (use winrar to open the xap)
