    Hey, I recently started using the MIUI Rom on my EVO, and i am using the SuaveHD theme. I noticed that there are a lot more icons made for this theme (I guess created for the iPhone version) than are included when you apply it on Android. I have downloaded the icons I want, but don't know how to get them to show up in place of the current apps' icons. I tried Desktop organizer, but the sizes were all wrong, and I don't know what else to do... Can anyone help me in terms of editing the theme to get this to work?


    Thanks.

    Go to the apps in the ROM

    system/app

    Click on the app (Open: res/drawable_hdpi ) till you find launcher_example.png (Most if not all are named like that)

    I'm pretty positive that all icons are 72x72

    Rename the icon that you want to the same name as the app you want it in (launcher_example.png)

    Drag and drop it in.

    It'll probably ask you if you want to update it with the change or something like that, click yes.

    and done.

    Hope this is what you were asking!:)

    Launcher Pro will let you use 5 rows of icons instead of the default 4.....

    Yeah, that does help, but how would I go about doing that for apps that aren't included in the rom? (facebook, twitter, etc...)
