    I want to customize my widgets and i saw a friend of a friend changed his icons and each one was just text had no picture. It was really slick and looked clean. Any help with an app or rom that would help with this. I have used desktop visualizer and other apps, but they all require you have a picture on the homescreen for the widget, but, for example, if i want the market widget on my homescreen, i want the widget on the homescreen to just say "Market, no picture...get it???? PLLEEEEEEEEEEEEASE fill me in. Thanks peeps =)

    yes there are several people on xda and one in the show us your screens thread here that have made custom text icons. or use folder organizer...find and download a transparent image off of google. use the change icon feature. you would still be left with stock text which would be sort of bland....

    Can you ask your friend to ask their friend? Sounds interested and I hope someone posts an answer here...to what ever it is.

    You could use the same desktop visualizer method but instead of an image, just create a "text image" in photoshop or gimp or whatever program you like. You would still be using a jpg or png but now instead of it being a picture of something, the image is just text with a transparent background.

    I would bet that's how this guy did it;

    [​IMG]

    I slapped together a quick 150x72px "text image" for Market just as a demonstration. Even though it shows white on your screen it has a transparent background. You would drop that on your homescreen as the "image" for your widget in desktop visualizer.

    I hope that helps.
