HOW TO
JWMD IconChanger v1.0
Icon Changer is a Start Menu customization tool designed for Windows Mobile 6.5

What you can do with JWMD Icon Changer?

CHANGING THE ICON
long press on an item to popup the context menu and click Change Icon.
A picture browser will show up for you to browse for an PNG image.

REMOVING THE ICON
long press on an item to popup the context menu and click Remove Icon.

SHOWING and HIDING THE ORIGINAL ICON
long press on an item to popup the context menu and click Show or Hide Orginal Icon.

SAVING and LOADING A THEME
Saving a theme will copy and build all neccessary information in a shortcut or folder located in the %Installed-Directory%\Themes

you must not rename the theme name folder or it will blow the path references!

Loading a theme will install all neccessary information in a shortcut or folder.
Image files will be transfered in "\Windows\IconChangerCache" to prevent from path referencing problem.

SORTING
click on Menu>Sort Current Items.
Sort the current items on the list by ASC, DESC

REGISTERING SHORTCUT FILES IN REGISTRY
One of the problem when using Cooked ROM is when Cheffs forgot to make a registry key for their application shortcut in start menu.
click on "Menu>Scan uregistered shortcuts" to automatically register the unregistered application shortcut files into the registry so you can edit the icon in IconChanger.

CLEAR HTC SENSE ICON CACHE
One of the recent problem reported was HTC Sense quicklink icons doesn't update even after restarting the phone. This was because HTC Sense has it's own way of caching their icon for optimization. So to solve this problem, I added a new feature to clear this cache which you can find in
"Menu>Tools>HTC Sense Tools>Clear Icon Cache" and soft-reset the phone.

Read my blog post for more information.

First suggestion:
Try to get the icon of the exe if there isn't a customized icon
MyMobile%20default.bmp


Second suggstion:
The "Up" is quite difficult to tap.... Better having a icon for it
MyMobile%20up.bmp

on your first suggestion.. sure I thought of it, but of course I want to let users know that the file wasn't customize, so I'd rather put something different there and of course able to show the exe icon.

on the second one. sure thing .. please bear with me, this app still in beta stage :)

and greatly appreciated your suggestions!! :)

Just what I've been looking for once you have the ability to save as a theme file or at least back up icons and their locations. That's the only thing hcomber is missing. Thanks and great work.

    Hi there!

    Nice job.. I have been able to change almost every icon in my Treo Pro. One question: I have selected the "scan unregistered shortcuts" and it works for the hidden icons in the "root" start menu but not for the "unregistered shortcuts" in the setting-personal or settings-connections, etc. There are icons I have not been able to change such as PC Setup, backlight, TTY, etc. They do not appear in JWMD. Any ideas?

    I am using a spanish ROM (21884) made by mord4z here at XDA.
