    what's the weather widget you use here? I use the Weather & Toggle Widget, but I cannot find any simple clean skins to apply.

    Also saw a dock background like this somewhere near the beginning of this thread, and couldn't find the file, so i recreated it.

    Here's the hi-res image for those of you who want to use it. Doesn't look that great on a light colored background, but on the dark it looks excellent. I will edit this post with a droid screenshot later. The background is to be used with a transparent image for the icon. you can cover the circle if you'd like... :-(

    Thanks for posting the icons. They go very well with the existing ones.
    Thanks. That's what I was shooting for.
    When I get a minute, I will definitely add them to the collective. Thanks!

    I'd like to post some screen shots (though nothing really new to see given all of the excellent shots thus far) but I am not rooted. it appears that one needs to be rooted to do screen shots (based on forum search). Any thoughts?

    Hi paulmz
    Can I request the pictures you used for the wordpress icon(the blog picture), also the talk icon(the yellow phone) please. I'd like to use them for other apps, would like to put different word on the bottom of the pictures.

    Thank you for this wonderful thread =)

    Does anyone know about the size the pictures need to be to use on the MyTouch 4G?

    I actually did a little research and came to that conclusion last night after posting this. I made myself 2x1 mspot widget (230x125), and the pic was wide enough but wasn't near tall enough. If I can figure out how to take a screenshot (no root) then I will make a test page with a couple of the same widgets a little later.

    EDIT: Ok I realized what I wasn't doing right. You have to use Launcher Pro with 5 rows (I was using ADW.Launcher with 5 rows). I really liked my theme on ADW but oh well. Thanks for this thread I look forward to creating/borrowing widgets.

    Ok another update. I redid everything I had done before in launcher pro this time but the spacing on top and bottom is off. I've tried to do the nonroot screenshot method but I'm having issues with the drivers.

    Good work on the layout. I like those Windows tile-looking icons. I also like the image for the ebay icon.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Good work! I like all of those icons. Isn't it amazing how many different photos there are of Danboard?

    Thanks for posting!

    So I threw together a few and put them on the phone just to check sizing, placement , etc.

    Hardest part is finding suitable pics ( using Google image search ) but can tell still need to fine tune some things like contrast in the images and text bar/font/font size but not too bad for someone with no real idea what he is doing LOL.

    All done using Gimp and paulmz' icon dimensions for the incredible w/status bar hidden. thanks Paul.




    have 3 other shots but I think you get the idea.

    Any comments would be helpful . Thanks !

    Thanks for the props, but yeah, it's insane how many photos are of him (and his little family). I had a hard time choosing which photos I wanted to use!

    It took me a while to get around to doing this (and figuring out how to do it):


    Uploaded with

    I took the SMS Unread Count widget and changed the icon png's using APK Manager. The counters work and the widgets link to their respective apps (gmail, sms, phone).

    NOTE: I did not write this app. All I did was change the icon images for an existing app. If this app does not work for any reason, I apologize in advance for not knowing how the app works or how to fix it. Please (1) try downloading the original app as linked above and (2) contact the developer of the original app with any problems.

    I only have this done for the Incredible so far... and only in blue. The size of the icons should also work well with any 480x800 resolution device.

    Here's the APK for it: View attachment paulmz_Blue_Incredible_SMS_Unread_Count_v1.5.7.apk

    Let me know what you think. I can probably change the colors and sizes later. Maybe even find other widget apps I can butcher to go with the look.

    We'll see!

    can i just ask, when peopl are using launcher pro with these great looking win7 themes, what widgets are you using for facebook and other htc sense apps? I think im right in saying any app/widget written by htc for htc sense doesnt work when running LP?

    are you all paying for LP+ and using the built in apps?

    Personally, I rarely used the HTC Sense widgets before changing over to the Android7 Theme. Facebook does have their own app on the Market with a perfectly acceptable widget.

    But, in answer to your question, yes- I do use LauncherPro Plus... not necessarily for those widgets (because I really don't use any widgets other than Desktop Visualizer, SwitchPro, and BattStatt) but more to support the developer.

    The LauncherPro Plus widgets and dock pop-ups are nice, though. Definitely worth a shot.

    Really nice paul! I'm really impressed it is looking more and more like it. It would be amazing if you could somehow figure a way to change the whole widget to update and display the text/mail counter, instead of a red dot at the corner.


    But wow! I'm really impressed!! Good Job!
