    I have not figured out how to perminatly change the email or sms icons ... icons that get the green notification dot always go back.

    Nevertheless, great job on the icons! Maybe when you figure out how to prevent them from changing you can chime me in.

    Also, under "edit shortcuts" there are several camera icons, camcorder, sms, mail, etc. I guess those were populated when I was experimenting with the program. Is there a way to clean those up off that list? For some reason I believe they are taking up disk space on the phone itself, not the SD card.

    I noticed this too when I was changing my icons, so i just switched to the regular droid UI and it is fine now (i was going to switch anyway). Im sure everyone knows this already but I figured I would chime in.lol

    This is my current theme while at work. Most items are turned off, icons cleaned off and access to my work "stuff".

    Ataranine,

    I like the look you have there. Why does yours look so different?

    Thank you. :)

    I disabled Sense and I'm using BetterCut to change my icons. The Icon packs I'm using are Android 2.0 and iPhone 3G. I had to disable Sense because some of the changed icons wouldn't appear changed.
    My screens have changed a bit since then, I'll take some more screenies later.

    how is the speed and performance with this layout?
    i believe disabling sense gives you better speed and battery life correct?
    very nice layout btw!

    I think my battery life is better without Sense, and the speed is great, a lot less lag.
    Thank you. :)

    What...exactly...would I lose by disabling Sense and how might I go about doing such a thing? The lag and battery issues are my BIGGEST gripe with my Eris. If I could fix those problems by dumping Sense w/o adding new ones I would be on that solution like white on rice.

    Settings>Applications>Manage Applications: Find HTC Sense in the Apps list, press clear defaults, force close, then press the home button. After that it'll ask you which to use, Home or Sense, pick Home.
    You'll lose the ability to use HTC widgets, but not android ones.

    Is it possible to provide step by step instructions on how to create folder on SD card, how to copy your icons to folder, etc?
    Id love to use some of your icons, they're great! But not sure how to do it...

    Thank you in advance!

    Those are Hero widgets, I believe.

    Wonder if you can get them for the Eris...
