    I don't know how they sized them but the couple I've done have been at the size I listed and they worked.

    I am using simple text and desktop visualizes but I cant get the icon to just be the text without the color background behind it? Even if I use black on a black wallpaper you can still kind of see the black square behind the text? Can you make the background behind the text icon transparent?:thinking:

    Yes. You can. Its in the settings. Open them from the app drawer and go into preferences. If you can't find it I'll look later

    Desktop visualizer. And you have to have an icon pack . I bought droidicon which works really well

    get SimiClock weather and simply drag the 1x1 icon to the left. Use the 2x1 SimiClock and tweak the "width of left side" until you get it in the middle. Start with 150 and adjust (i've since changed my homescreen and the clock position).


    3 separate widgets, all from the simiclock pack (a great free pack, imo). 1x1 weather, 2x1 clock, 1x1 battery. All Color/Alpha sliders turned off to get the naked look. enjoy!

    This is an old Screenie:

    Made this using Launcher Pro. I also got this effect with the stock launcher using Folder Organizer from the market.

    Be warned this type of behavior leads to rooting and theming, so take precautions!! :D

    If you use Desktop Visualizer, you could make those icons over the eyes of your background invisible. Effectively making the eyes themselves the icon. :cool:

    Is there a way to replace the docked shortcuts on the bottom (phone, browser etc) with something like simple text with the stock launcher? I've been trying, but ICS won't let me place anything I make down there.

    Does anyone know how to make the simi clock widget appear transparent?

    I had the same problem, Booya. I checked back on my phone after about 30 minutes and simi started showing up in the widgets section. I would just give it some time.

    Rebooting the phone fixed it for me.

    When you set the widget up, tap back ground and move the alpha all the way down to zero.

    Still tinkering, loving the android customization though, coming over from the fruit phone for the last 4+ years.

    Still need to work on the photo a bit, unlocked the bootloader today and wanted something to quickly get things set back up after the wipe.

    Wow, I really like your background picture. Where did you get it, and can you link it here?
