Download: Custom Droid Life LauncherPro Trays

Our very own Mrpicolas has modified a set of 5 LauncherPro trays plus a Droid Life launcher icon to help you completely customize your setup.  Included in his set is also a batch of custom app icons so you can really take this to the next level.  Check out the file and instructions below…

Download:  DL LauncherPro Pack.zip

Instructions…

1.  Download and install LauncherPro from the market or buy the Plus version.
2.  Download the LauncherPro pack and extract files to your SD card.
3.  To change the launcher button:

Long press the launcher button, choose App Drawer>Custom Icon.  Then find the folder in your gallery that you extracted in step 2 and choose the DL logo.

4.  To change the launcher tray:

Menu>Preferences>Appearance Settings>Dock background>Custom.  Then find the folder in your gallery that you extracted in step 2 and choose a custom tray.

5.  To change the app icons:

Long press the app you wish to replace, choose Applications, find the app you want, then choose custom icon and navigate to the “mrpicolas icon set” folder.  Choose an icon.

6.  Enjoy!

If you weren’t already aware that LauncherPro allowed this type of customization and the DL logo set isn’t your thing, feel free to check out the LP forums for a very active userbase that has been creating all sorts of goodness.

Cheers Mrpicolas!

And cheers to the original tray designers Sph1re, shimizu2005 and br_hermon!

          :-( where are pink ones?

          • Chris Nimon

            tried to post some i changed to pink but disqus needs to “approve” them so i dont know if it will show up or not. Any way, you can change the color by changing the hue in photoshop or with the picsay app.

            Thank you, i forgot to hit load comments to see them all from other post

          • Chris Nimon

            Scroll down through the comments at this link. Someone actually spent some time making pink ones. http://www.droid-life.com/2010/06/29/download-r

    How do I get one of those cool droid life wallpapers? When I followed the instructions my home screen just got a giant dl underneath the wallpaper I had some purple but nothing like the pics above. I must be confused.

    how do you get the docks of the site? theres no option to download it just shows attachments do you just drag the picture of the dock you want to the root of the sd card on my droid or what?

  • Audmad529

  • Audmad529

    OK I installed LauncherPro & love it. But now my Droid starts out with “this phone belongs to” on the draw pattern screen, but I can't figure out where or, how to enter my name. HELP PLEASE!!!!!

  • lvmydroid

    Found this pretty awesome theme. Someday I'll root. Love stuff like this. Having a hard time finding anything similar for us unrooters. :(

    being new to Droid… how do I do a screen capture like the one above and have it save in my gallery?

    • Droidzilla

      You have to be rooted, to my knowledge. Once rooted, there are several, free apps that allow this sort of functionality.

      • http://gbrenna.com/ Graham

        Oh okay that makes sense. Thanks

      • ReebyWantsYoMom

        I believe quite a while back there's a tutorial on how to do it using your computer on a non rooted phone. I went threw the process and it worked nice just a little more work than if your rooted.
        ill try and find the link but disqus is a pain lol

  • Fireproof1905

    kinda off subject but the pics in the gallery on the bottom… I was curious when i download the pic how do i get the wallpaper to keep resoultion because it makes the picture zoom in and look all distroted…..

  • http://twitter.com/metalhead520 Nick

    I can't get this to download, I have a Droid 1 and went to this site through my browser on the Droid but it says download unsuccessful every time it tries to download the pack. What am I doing wrong here everyone? I really want this Droid Life pack on my phone to get rid of the stock launcher pro stuff.

    • Stephen

      its because it's a zip file. You have to download it onto your computer and unzip the file to your sd card then you can get them working.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1807340727 Scott Burton

    WOW COOL

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4MX4UTDUZVT2FNVHVJ2HE7PY5M Andrew

    I cant get this to work… The png's refuse to show up in the gallery :(

    • Dylan

      Ah.. I've Found it… I had to clear the gallery's data :D Thanks DL and Mrpicolas

      • Body_marks

        Thanks same problems here, your fix took care of it. :)

  • Hogdawgs

    what happen to the logo contest. I haven't seen the new DL logo???

    • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

      It was actually a new “avatar” contest :-P

  • nkhex19

    This is awesome. Thanks MrPicolas!!!

  • villian1998

    Excellent work, it's not my type of theme but looks great. Thanks for all of your hard work.

  • JimBobPooter

    how can use these icons as the default app icons(not just in the tray)?

    • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

      You can use Metamorph, or find an app on the Market called “File Organizer”. Let's you assign custom icons to apps and shortcuts on the “desktop” of your phone :-)

  • xix19

    kellex what theme are you using? it looks like the droid x theme but it has a black notification bar.

    • Stephen D

      It's JRummy's Froyo Kangerade XTheme with the black notification bar. They're separate downloads.

  • http://twitter.com/bgdave39 David Wakefield

    The pink is a little fruity, just sayin'.

    • banana bombs

      you can change it to plain black and white or gray if you just change the hue on pretty much any photo editing software on your computer.

      real men wear pink…and aren't afraid to admit :)

      • Jdstell

        It's part of the “chickification” of men in America. The first time I saw this site, I almost closed the tab immediately and moved onto the next because of the pink. I didn't realize it was a serious Droid blog.

        • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

          Sometimes you have to get over what you are taught. From an early age, we are taught that pink is “feminine” or “flamboyant”. But lets face it, Pink and Black go sooo good with each other. No denying it :-P

          • Flyinion

            Yep, pink and black look great on lingerie, on a chick :P

        • http://twitter.com/TonyG916 Tony Garza

          not true…im a gun-totin' TEXAN who is not afraid to wear pink…not to go on and on about how TEXAS is the epitome of machismo, but well…it is :)

          you know what color I won't wear? insecurity

          • http://twitter.com/DerekWeber Derek Weber

            Men who cover themselves in pink are saying “look at me and how hipster I am”.

    • banana bombs

      just change the hue to black and white or gray on any photo software on your computer.

  • pir800

    I see that weather widget everywhere, but can't find it. Can anyone tell me what it's called? Do I need launcher pro installed to use it?

    • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

      Beautiful…………….Widget…………….lol

      • mtkregs

        Oh my….deja vu. Reminds me of the movie “Groundhog Day”.

        • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

          Poor Bill Murray lol People are still talking $*** about Garfield lol :-P

    • Jdstell

      It's called: beautiful widgets

      • pir800

        awesome I just bought it. it's great.

  • Mrpicolas

    Thanx guys just wanted to share something cool with you guys

    • http://techdeft.myopenid.com/ TechDeft

      And you sure did! I still wish the community was as obsessed with orange as I am. :P

      • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

        Are you still running Nemesis Orange Nightmare or whatever? :-P lol

        • http://techdeft.myopenid.com/ TechDeft

          Haha not right now, I'm digging the way JRummy skins a lot of the stock icons too. I should e-mail Aaron and ask him if he plans on doing something like that.

          And it will always be TechDeft Orange to me. :)

          • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

            Yea. I know Aaron is a busy guy. He never talks about themes all too much which is unfortunate because that's what everyone wants basically. Sometimes people want looks over functionality. BUT, once he gets functionality, then he better start themeing like a mad man. :-P

          • http://techdeft.myopenid.com/ TechDeft

            Yea, I prefer functionality of form myself, but the modder community has functionality down pat. His ROM seemed to run very nice. But once it works well, then I want it work well and look sexier than me while it's at it.

          • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

            Preach lol

          • http://techdeft.myopenid.com/ TechDeft

            Someone get me a damn soapbox.

    • josh1980

      Hey Picolas, do you have to be rooted to use the icon pack and can I download and extract on my droid or do I need to do it with my computer. Any advice is always appreciated. Thanx

      • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

        You dont have to be rooted. This can all be done from your phone :-)

        • josh1980

          Appreciate it, Tim always there to help.

        • josh1980

          Hey tim when I try and download the zip file it says not supported with this
          phone and I have the unknown sources checked. Any ideas?

  • Yagermeister

    All I have to say is WOW! What a community of people who give back! Great job Kellex and thank you for providing the venue! Thank you Picolas for your time and effort as well!

          • Jay P

            Me and ten of my boys were planning on going there this weekend, but we said heel with lets just go to Miami, for three days and then Bahamas one day for gambling, yea baby. bienvenido a miami.

          • mtkregs

            With the crappy housing market in Vegas and a little luck in the casinos, you could buy a Droid_Life party pad for all to use.

            …at least that's what a good DL Mod would do :)

          • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

            Hmmm, I'll thiiink about it lol
