    Just made some new icons and thought I would share. I was going for a chrome border but it came out looking a little more like brushed aluminum. They look really good on darker backgrounds. There are 152 icons in the set. I went for the more popular icons. There should be a little something in there for everybody. You need Bettercut to install these. You can download it on the market.

    Examples below.


    UPDATED Version 2 (5/10/10):
    Fourteen more icons added. Scanner Radio, Screebl, Astrid, Barcode Scanner (their new icon), Skyfire, and 9 Star Wars icons just for fun.



    UPDATED Version 3 (5/23/10):
    Added ROM Manager, Photobucket, Photoshop, Easy Tether, Home Switcher, LastFM and Temp Monitor.

    UPDATED Version 4 (5/26/10):
    Added two new Dolphin Browser icons, three Gears of War icons and two generic games icons .


    Download link for the whole 152 icon set:

    jchavez you have to use Bettercut. Search the market for the app.

    to install download the icon pack when hes done and place them in a folder on your sd card (icons) open bettercut then edit shortcuts.

    good luck.

    I'm gonna work on making a pack of more common icons first. Icons that most people would be using. Then I can do some of the not so common ones.

    Thought about it but figured most people used the youtube widget.

    I'll add them to the set. Here they are in the meantime.

    These are great. I've had the phone since release but never really customtized it, and now I can't seem to stop. Are they hard to make? I was a little suprised that I had to add each one to the home screen individually--hopefully they create a way to take an icon pack and automatically update your icons if you have matching ones (if an app for this, pls let me know)

    Anyway, do you take requests? I found most of the ones I needed but there are a few I'd like as well, if you roll like that. I can try to do it myself if you let me know what program you used.

    For those curious here is what they look like on a home screen once installed (pic is kind of blurry)
