How to make Beweather icon sets for Android/Blackberry
way to create a set:
First, make sure you have 7-zip
installed on your computer. If you do not then search for it on google,
download, then install.
Next download any
icon pack from my blog (or any set) and put it on your desktop.
How to: Create a new folder on your desktop
called anything you want.
The icon packs are in a .bwi format.
Locate the .bwi file on your computer and right click on it. Move your
mouse cursor down to 7-zip, then select Open Archive. Or select “open with”
and select 7-zip. Basically this allows you to edit the file (including
zips and apks) without unzipping or decompiling. Select all the icons and
drag them over to that New Folder you created on your desktop. Now you
will be able to open the icons and edit them.
Edit the icons: Basically just do that. Use your favorite
program like gimp, Microsoft Paint, Photoshop, etc. to open the pic and
edit it. Make sure you save the icon back to the same name it
When you are done editing your icons, go
back to the .bwi file and use 7-zip to open the archive once again. Now
that the archive is open, go ahead and open back up the New Folder you
created. You should have both folders open now. Select all the icons from
the new folder and drag them into the Archive of 7-zip. A box with pop up
asking if you’re sure you want to copy files to that file...select YES. WARNING: anytime you use
this method you MUST be sure that the files you’re adding are NAMED THE
SAME or it won’t work right.
Now that you’re done moving icons, you
can rename the file to anything you want by right clicking on the .bwi
file and selecting Rename. Just be sure to keep it a .bwi file.
way to create a set:
Take a set from my blog (or any set) and
download it to your computer. Change the extension .bwi to .zip and extract the
icons. This shows you the names each icon needs to be.
Create your icons using the
exact same names as the set you extracted. When done, zip up your set. Make
sure you don’t zip the folder you have your icons in, but instead, highlight
all your icons and zip at that level. Name it whatever you want.
zipped file to your phone. Locate it and rename it by changing the .zip to
.bwi. Move the file to your Beweather folder.
