The Idiot Box Home Screen

This week's featured home screen comes from reader Step666, who incorporates his icons into the wallpaper for a very cool effect.

Step666 runs down the tools that make it happen:

  • The launcher is VTL, an ADW spin-off.
  • The wallpaper, I have to be honest and say I can't remember where I found it. If anyone knows, please tell me and I'll add credits.
  • The icons are all from LauncherPro Icons and are embedded in the wallpaper (pasted in using GIMP).
  • Desktop VisualiseR with a transparent PNG for the Browser and Facebook icons.
  • SMS Unread Count with the same transparent PNG for the SMS and Gmail counters/shortcuts.
  • SiMi Folder (again with the transparent PNG) for the games folder.
  • Minimalistic Text for the clock and battery widgets.
  • The lock screen features the same unknown wallpaper without the icons embedded in it but with the same two Minimalistic Text widgets and a custom Sense-style slider of my own making using Widget Locker.
