Hey all,

Just found it out myself, so I thought let's share it with the people who don't know it yet!!

WHAT YOU NEED:
1. A file explorer.
2. A launcher on which you can change icons like Nova Launcher or Apex Launcher (both in Play Store/App Market).
3. A MIUI theme with a lot of icons (like Suave Redone).

WHAT TO DO:
1. Change the theme name from {themename}.mtz into {themename}.zip
2. Extract the .zip file to a place where you can find it back easily.
3. Search for the icons file in the folder where you extracted {themename}.zip to, and rename it into icons.zip
4. Extract that file also, to a place where you can find it back easily as well.
5. Long press the icon you want to edit in the homescreen in your new launcher. It should show edit or something like that.
6. Press the icon, and press: select picture.
7. Choose an icon in the folder where you extracted your icons.zip to.

This should have changed your homescreen icon. NOT your app drawer icon. You will have to do them one by one, just repeat it from step 5 on if you're changing an other icon.

Greetzz, Jojoost

You can also download normal icon zips and install using your launcher. I find this preferable as nearly all miui icons look the same to me (slight variations of the same square).

Or..... Just download the MTZ theme and extract it with 7zip then find the icon folder and drag it out.
