    my attempt at paulmz's idea..

    ADW Launcher with Luxury Black HD theme folders, removed both status bar and dock.
    Simple Text for making the text icons on the bottom of my home desktop.
    2 Minimalistic Text widgets for the time, date, battery and weather.
    Galaxy Nexus ICS 4.0.2.

    I am currently using Go Launcher and was wondering where can I find more icons to use for my ever changing themes? Go Launcher doesn't have many themes where i can use the icons from them.

    Is there a way I can get more icons?

    I tried downloading 3 different sets of icons from that site, using the instructions they provided. Didn't work.

    For those that have the barcode I scanned it, saved it to my phone but when I tried to unzip it my phone said it was unable to do that. Same thing happened when I saved the file to my computer then emailed it to myself.

    I msgd a couple of ppl for help on their forum but only one answered back and basically told me I was too dumb to own an Android phone :eek:

    I'm not familiar with Go launcher but imagine its not much different than Launcher Pro..

    When I get new icons I always download them to PC , unzip them there into a folder. Connect phone to PC , create a Icon folder on ext sd card and copy only the icons from the PC that i know I will use.

    Then to replace the current ones on your phone in the dock just long press and follow the options .

    If you want to use custom icons on your screens I think you are gonna need Desktop visualizer. Long press the screen>widgets>Desktop Visualizer (1x1) and a green box shows up on your screen. tap that box , tap select icon > follow the options to choose your icon. Next tap select actionfollow the options you want .

    Then clear the title box or leave it . Depends on whether you want a title under the icon or just the icon. Change or leave any of the other options listed and then click OK. You now have a custom icon on your screen.

    If you are wanting to change the icons in your app drawer I have no clue :)

    Hope this helped

    I just got my Rezound yesterday- haven't had time to make all new Android7 icons for it yet, but had to do something simple with it...

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    Stock HTC Rezound with ADWLauncher EX, Folder Organizer shortcuts with Metrostation icons, Make Your Clock clock/weather widgets, SMS Unread Count notifications, and Widgetsoid 2 toggles.

    Wallpaper is just a Danboard from a Google image search.

    Don't know why the screenshots have a black bar down the right side. I'll have to edit those out on future screenshots, I guess.

    Does anyone know how to adjust the size of the icons used on the dock? I use Go Launcher and find the icons on the dock are pretty small.

    Here's my wallpaper and tiny icons issue:

    only way around it I know of is to make them part of your wallpaper ( use Gimp or Photoshop ) and make them as big as you want/need and then use an invisible png over them .

    Not sure if you're willing to try ADW Ex, but that launcher has a feature to scale the size of the icons, and several other options for the dock area - including eliminating it altogether and applying icons/widgets all the way to bottom of the screen. I liked Go when I tried it, but ADW has so many gestures and features that I've not seen in other launchers - but perhaps Go has updates since I last played with it. :)

    Late last night I actually found out I can change the icon size on the dock! Its in the Preference settings of Go Launcher - yay me! lol!

    I had ADW but liked the fact that Go has the unread notification in the dock for emails, texts, etc. Was always a pet peeve that Gmail has that stupid 3rd party rule.

    That's high praise from you indeed - thanks Paul :) Saw your last screen (great by the way) on the Rezound - how are you liking it? It's on my shortlist of devices to consider for purchasing this spring
    Edit - all were made flashable zips for other ROMS - working on same boots without MIUI logo, maybe some with CM7. Thanks Eyebeam & Thetaman! :D
