    I've been wanting to change my fugly folder icons for a long time and i finally got it figured out. Installed this as a MM theme on top of my Helix 1.2 launcher. there's a few white pixels around the edges that i didnt catch but i'm happy for now! :)

    i attached the MM theme if anybody cares (its still called 'smoked', i just copied what another member did)

    no this isnt through bettercut. its a theme applied through Meta Morph, so yes you need root access

    do you have the helix launcher installed? this is made to work with the helix launcher. if you have the stock launcher, youll need to modify the launcher.apk that's in system/app. check the threads made by matth3w, he goes into detail how to edit the stock launcher.apk

    still it shouldnt be too bad to do yourself. just take the icon thats in my zip file, and overwrite the stock one in the res/drawable-hdpi folder of your launcher.apk.

    or for those on the stock launcher, use matt3w's launcher.apk here, take my icon called ic_launcher_folder.png and overwrite the one in his launcher. then, follow his instructions to make it work again.

    should take no more than 5 minutes :)

    you should be able to just download the file, then using a file explorer program move it to the correct locations from your downloads folder

    Found a easy way around my problem. Got folder organizer from the market. When you open that you can press the menu button and click new shortcut (I think). You can then change the name and select new icons to suit you. It will also let you select icons from other iicon packs you have downloaded. You just have to long press the new folder and select add items and check the ones you want in thatshortcut. then long press an empty space, select shortcut scroll down to folder organizer label and select the one you want. Pretty easy.

    It lets you create shortcuts, within each shortcut you can put in multiple apps. You create it, name it, choose an icon and then select the Apps you want to put in. I got the free version and it works great. Download it and there is a link to a video tutorial.
