Both the Start Icon & The Wait Cursor are in shellres.96.dll if you attach the 2 x shellres.96.dll's

Call one Start Icon to be used & Other Wait Cursor to be ported i will happily port the Wait Cursor for you :)

Send me PM when attached.

i made it work :D
it has the 6.5 loading icon and windows vista blue too :]

This is what you want. It's a safe cab, based on Shakas registry tweak. Just install in internal memory and reboot. Or you just need the icon only?

Thanks for the cab but it doesn't change anything after install and soft reset.

Anyone else have a nice smooth WM6.5 white start menu icon?

Start Text

So I've changed quite a few icons in the taskbar, including a custom start icon....However the instructions for changing the text "Start" do not work for me. I do not have the string table 321 in shellres.192.dll.0409.mui. The only string table listed is 1143. Not sure where this value is located on my phone. I've read this entire thread as well as a few others and this problem has not seem to have come up before:( Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance

May I have the Water Element icon for VGA? I looked for that image on Google with no luck. If you want, you can just send me the PNG so I can do it myself.

Disregard that, I'm a moron. Found it in this post here.

Edit 2:

The person who made the VGA version didn't make it transparent. If you could get me the original PNG, that would be awesome. In the meantime, I'll either try to add transparency into the one already made, and/or just use the Kubuntu icon.

Edit 3:

Changed the icon to the Kubuntu logo.

Here's the file, signed: Kubuntu start icon ( VGA, 0409 )

I'm going to work on adding transparency to the VGA water element icon either tonight or tomorrow.

Edit 4:

Made the Water Element icon transparent.

Hi :)

1. Try copy & paste with " Total Commander" with "hide files in ROM" option selected,

2. Don't use default file explorer,

3. if you are trying to overwrite the previously pasted xxx.dll file, you should rename it to xxx.dl before pasting ;)

I am also having this trouble with trying to pull this file to edit the "Start" text. I use TC and tried the suggestion of "hide files in Rom" still same error. Also I try to copy the file to a location that has nothing in it yet it still says it already exsist.

Sprint TP2 running stock 6.1 with only some cosmetic changes.
