Firestorm Iconset brings some Gloss to Windows Mobile
Give your start menu a bit of shine with the Firestorm Iconset by Lechux. The 131 sleek, sharply styled and high quality icons are inspired by agent_47‘s line of Valkyrie ‘Firestorm’ ROMs for the HD2, Touch Pro2 and XPERIA X1, but will look stunning on any device. Icons for the most popular Windows Mobile applications are now available in a .zip, either with glossy black or glossy translucent backgrounds. For folder icons, Lechux has provided four different background styles, each set as a separate .zip file.
Also being released are ‘combination .cabs’ which install two of the icon sets automatically and can be found along with the .zips in the original thread.
