    I'm using the stock home screen that comes with Liberty 1.5. I recently changed to the Watermarked theme, but my Phone, Menu and Browser icons stayed the stock yellow. Is this a known glitch with themes in Liberty 1.5?

    Got a link to the theme you installed?

    Often there's an extras.zip with wallpaper and icons you can use for custom launchers.

    I actually just used the Liberty Toolbox theme changer. Maybe the one that it downloads from the Liberty server is missing parts?

    Themes don't change launcher icons. You need to change them yourself. ;)

    Strange, the Big Crystal Theme from the toolbox does change the Launcher icons. Weird.

    It depends on the theme. Some themes are a lot more extensive in how many icons and images are "themed". This is obvious when you look at the theme file sizes. Some are only 4 to 6MB while others are over 20MB.

    It is recommended that you go back to the stock Liberty theme in between theme changes to "reset" the System files and prevent having any remnants of the past theme show up in the theme that you are changing to.
