    I have 12 Desktop Visualizer widgets that are shortcuts to 12 programs. The icons are in a folder called /sdcard/icons/_01.png -> _12.png

    To change 'themes', I overwrite the 12 png files with another set of 12 (with the same file name), and reboot. When the phone comes up - I have the new icons. This way I can change looks without removing & re-adding the DV widgets all over again.

    Any way to get LP and/or DV to reload the newer graphics without a reboot that anyone knows of?

    One attempt at a bump. Anyone with any ideas?

    You could try restarting Laucher Pro from within the Launcher Pro menu

    Or try rebooting with Fast Reboot if you're unrooted.

    Thanks to both - oddly restarting LP doesn't seem to make a difference.

    That being said, a reboot isn't the worst thing in the world and I don't change icons that often :)

    (well, some days I do)
