an icon theme based on the new MIUI V5 default icons.
I share a .mtz which perfectly works on MIUI V5 [tested on my Xiaomi Mi2], MIUI V4 [fully working, except for dynamic icons], and Mi-Home launcher [for non-MIUI ROMs].

the iconset is released under a CC license. click here for details.

reasons why I discontinued V5_ext

This post was edited by zipalign at 00:42, Sep-18-2014

I have been a proud fan of MIUI.
I fell in love with it since 2010, when I have seen its first screenshots and screen recording via XDA and youtube.
at that time, I owned an xperia X8, and unfortunately no MIUI rom was available for it to flash.
then, in 2011, I decided to purchase an hi-end phone, getting a HTC Sensation XE.
I flashed some cyanogenmod, then, when MIUI porting was quite stable, I flashed my first MIUI rom on a device. I simply was astonished. the customizations, the revolutionary UI, the rapidity of the whole system, were the main things I was missing in AOSP, Sense or cyanogen roms.
the MIUI porting was fully functional on my pyramid, but the performances lacked a little on its 750MB of RAM, giving some random lag here and there.
then, in 2012, I finally took a big decision. mi2 was presented to the world, and I decided to sell my pyramid to get it.
on january 2013, I had in my hands my first original xiaomi product, and it was like the x-mas present I got when I was a child.
everyone stared at my phone, I was so proud of it, no one around here ever saw a xiaomi phone, and they all found it great.
I have bought 4 xiaomi mi2/s.
one for me, one for my sister, one for a friend and one for my sister's boyfriend.
everyone of us still use it today with pleasure.

when MIUI V5 was released, I decided to give my contribute to the community, partecipating with my best skills, trying to do something new.
I wasn't at my first experience in drawing icons.
in 2007 I released a great icon pack for GNU/Linux OS'es, [hydroxygen icon pack] with my old pseudo "deviantdark". maybe some of you were still too young to remember, or maybe you weren't interested in GNU/Linux based systems, but my old icon pack is still one of the most downloaded/viewed on deviantART, even if it's out to date since 7 years.

so, in april 2013, I released my first version of MIUI V5_extended icons.
I have kept alive my project for more than a year, getting precious contributions from some MIUI fans in this and other forums. I want to sincerely thank all of them, V5_ext project wouldn't have been this far without them.
but there also has been some user which grabbed my icons and released as it was his own original work. the first one I have caught has been binod, moderator of this forum.
that made me feel angry at first. I didn't release my work making someone to pay for it, I simply asked to give proper credit to me, then anyone could have do anything he wanted with it. I think this is the main principle of open source philosophy.
suddenly, many icon packs began to pull up, and everyone of those was a fork of my original work. and still no credit for me.
the last in this list, is one of the recent themes I have seen around.
do you find some credit to zipalign's work?
nope.

the anger I felt at first, begun to come disaffection and delusion.
I think this has to be caused by the MIUI themes policy, which doesn't really defend the original work creators, letting forks be published without control.

I am grateful to xiaomi and MIUI users/developers. thanks to them, I have found new ambitions and joyfulness using my smartphone, the exact way I wanted to do it.
but now I think it's time for me to stop developing something so fragile and unprotected like a MIUI theme.
I am using a cyanogenmod 11 rom since may, and I am quite satisfied with it.
I don't want to say CM is better that MIUI or viceversa, I am just thanking MIUI for letting me have fun with the countless hours spent drawing icons, and trying to satisfy the requests of all V5_ext users.

maybe you won't like my decision to discontinue this project, but be sure it does make me sad.
I have lost my initial pleasure doing something original, and I find no reason to continue drawing something that any 14 years old buddy can grab and release as it was his work. I can't accept it.

please try to understand me and apologize.
MIUI V5_ext will always remain as one of the best things I have done, and I'd like to say thanks to any one of you.

see you soon, somewhere.

first of all, I'd like to thank again all of you, which made this iconset become something really precious in my life.
I want to thank xiaomi, MIUI developers and all the designers here in this forum, for their wonderful contribution.

I have been PM'ed by @Piratz, which kindly asks me if he can still mantain this project alive.
I extend this offer to anyone who'd like to keep it [giving at Piratz the option to be the first].

I'd like to do this way:
I'll change my iconset name, from "V5_extended" into "V5_extended [legacy]" into xiaomi theme store and all around.
then, anyone who has a designer account at xiaomi servers can release a fork of my work [I'd give him all the files contained into the .mtz] and name it "V5_extended". the only rule is to keep the original author credits.

then you can edit/remix and share the theme the way you like, adding or removing anything you like/don't like.
my V5_extended [legacy] will last in time, "freezed" at last release.

what do you think?
anyone would like to keep this project alive if Piratz won't take it?

Hi guys!

One icon request here: Amazon Music

I made two versions to choose from, the black one corresponds with the amazon-icons already present in the theme, the orange one looks more like the original one.

TUTORIAL:
how to customize and batch resize icons in the iconset.

tools needed:
- 7zip [to compress / extract files]
- FastStone Photo Resizer [to batch resize images]
- a Windows PC

first of all, a brief introduction on how a MIUI theme file works.
the .mtz extension of our files, means MIUI Theme Zip. so we can simply uncompress our theme via 7zip:

extract.png

once uncompressed, we'll find the theme elements inside.
what we are going to edit, is the "icons" file. that file is .zip compressed too, even if it must have no file extension [remember it when you are going to re-compress it once your job is done].
so, we can go further right clicking on it, and choose 7zip > extract to icons~ to extract the content of the icons file.
on V5_extended, we'll have this folder structure:

icons~
-------fancy_icons
--------------------- various dynamic icons folders
-------res
----------drawable-xhdpi

we must point to drawable-xhdpi folder. we'll find inside all the bunch of icons the theme contains.

HOW TO REPLACE ICONS WITH ONES OF YOUR CHOICE

once we have uncompressed the .mtz theme and the icons file, we are ready to edit it.
in this example, I'll customize the iconset replacing the youtube icon with one of my choice.
so, let's pick the .png icon I want to have into my custom theme, and rename it com.google.android.youtube.png
once you have renamed it, copy and paste it into the icons~ extracted folder, following this path: icons~/res/drawable-xhdpi
you must replace the original one with the one of your chioce. and you can do this same operation with any app icon you want to replace, or add to my iconset.
to obtain the exact process name of the icon you want to include, please refer to android activities database and look for your application name. the database will output all the process name associated with that app, and you have to rename your icon with the data listed on the output.

once you have finished adding/replacing, it is time to recompress the theme to make it work.
so, come back into icons~ extracted folder, and compress the content into a .zip file:

compress

compress


wait for the compression to finish, then you'll find a file named icons.zip right under the fancy_icons and res folders.
now rename icons.zip into icons [delete the file extension], then move into the parent folder, where you have all the theme elements.
in this step, you have to replace the original icons file with the one you have now created.
once replaced the file, select all the theme files [be careful not to select the icons~ folder, we don't need it] and compress it into a .zip file via 7zip:

mtz

mtz


we are almost done.
the final step is to rename our newly created .zip file with .mtz file extension.
then we can move the file into our phone and install the theme via theme app.

BATCH RESIZING PNGs

I provide a version of my iconset which is made to work on gingerbread versions of MIUI.
the icons for that theme are not xhdpi, but have a 90x90 pixel resolution.
to batch resize them, without losing icons quality, I use a tool named FastStone Photo Resizer.
once set up, it can batch resize a bunch of files in a while.

Hello! Thank you very much for this awesome icon pack. I used to use it when I was on MIUI V5, but unfortunately I had to switch back to MIUI GB. I tried using this mtz on this miui version but the icons are not aplied. Could you, if it's not much to ask, make them compatible with MIUI 2.4.20 ?

Thanks very much!

Thanks for the new thread!
What you see here is...
The rambling verses of a bored man who decided he should have a signature but didn't know what
to sign so he just sat there at his computer writing whatever came to his mind and as a result...
...now you know you should have stopped reading a long time ago, don't you??
