    I'm wondering the same of course but not sure if it would matter as to what phone it is for or if it has to be for a particular one? As far as like incredible droid or the type of software is on your phone?

    Hey guys, I have some good news for you on the tutorials. I can type one up for you. I also will post a link to a colleague of ours who does tutorials for the android development and os. His division is working to get a tutorial up for creating icons. Here is his YouTube Channel.

    They will be posting a video , as i have just asked his team about it. It will cover the basics from Icon size, software, and techniques to making web2.0 gloss icons, layering and text placement.

    If you need something, email us : fluxboxmedia@gmail.com

    Here is their channel. I would subscribe if I were you, as they do tutorials all day on this modifications for Android Users.

    Thanks Fluxbox for offering the help, not everyone is willing to do that for the newbies or the simpler questions.

    I totally understand. I have relayed to them that there is some requests on how to install apps to the phone via USB , that dont' come from the market. So i have issued emails to them to make that tutorial as well as the new W7 Theme Icon Tuturorial that we have been informed will be out this week. We at FBM partnered with GeekTekneek to provide easy use for all the non-experienced users. Not everyone is a Tech-Geek and we Know that. It's our mission as theirs, to provide solutions, simple so that we all can enjoy the best of our devices.
