There is a thread on xda with some instructions:
[Layout] Android Phone 7 (HDPI) - xda-developers
^^ What he said.
I also uploaded a zip file in another thread here that has some tiles that I made. Here's the link:
That thread linked is toooooo many pages, I read a bunch but I have a question. the pic OP posted the Contacts icon stretches across the entire screen. I made one that's 484pix wide (Droid 1) but when I add it as a widget it doesn't go all the way across the screen. If I drag it down to be 4x2 it's full width but the space below it between it and the next icon is real big. In OP's pic it looks like they're almost touching which is what I'm after.
I like how they did that too... don't know if I'm going to do it or not... but, if I were, I would simply get the pictures I wanted, and store them in the SD card with my other pictures.
I would then use Desktop visualizer (free app) and I can then assign any picture to my apps. It has 4x1, 2x1, 1x2 sized widgets in Desktop visualizer.
I also am able to resize my widgets with Launcher Pro so I could then tweek from there.
I started a tutorial thread on this a few days ago:
Icons and files to download are there, plus lots of other information.
If you haven't seen it already, try looking at this thread:
Or if you haven't read this thread, similar only already done and ready for requests to be downloaded. Just email and it will be given to you. If you would like custom images, email those also and include details and they will create!
FBM's Incyte.dash , elegance and simple Themes - All designed on this same Principle.
fluxbox's way is similar but requires LauncherPro Plus at an additional cost.
This other way only requires LauncherPro (FREE) and Desktop Visualizer (FREE). All icons are perfectly sized and do not need to be resized with the "Widget Resize Option" in LauncherPro Plus.
All icons are completely customizable at request. Also free (but donations are always welcome).
How did you get the text icons in the dock? Are they from Launcher Pro or did you make them yourself?
I did create the text icons myself in Photoshop (just made an 84x84 pixel box and entered the text, then saved as a .png). LauncherPro lets you change the icon to any .png file on the device. Works well, it's just low resolution because it's so small.
so how do u get the widgets so close together mine wont do that...
