Icon Sets


These icon sets are to be used with Rockbox's loadable icon functionality, described in further detail in the CustomIcons wiki page. Please upload them as a .zip file with, at a minimum, a config in the /.rockbox/themes folder and the replacement icons. If you've extended beyond the basic viewers icons, do not forget the .icons file.


Download and unzip the Inconset zip file to the root of your player. From the Rockbox Main Menu , browse to Settings > Theme Settings > Browse Themes and click on the icons theme that you wish to install

Packaged Icon Sets

This is a zip that I put together that will easily put all the iconsets on your player. Includes the complete set of the gallery as of April 29 2007. The zip includes the appropriate theme files so that each set can be loaded from the browse themes menu. To install, just extract the zip to the root of your player.

Individual Icon Sets

Tango 20x16x16

This theme uses the icons from the tango library ( adapted for use in Rockbox. They are released under the creative commons share-alike license (not sure if this is GPL compatible). The included .cfg file will set your font to jackash-16 to accommodate for the increased icon size. If you're using another font that you would rather use, simply reselect it afterwards.

Tango 12x12x16 Grayscale

This theme is based on the Tango 12x12x16 theme of ChristophReiter (look above), but manually redrawn for grayscale players. I especially designed it to replace the standard icons in my iRiver H120, so it uses a 4-grayscale palette. The font used in the screenshot is nimbus-13.fnt, but it should probably work with other fonts with at least 12px height.

I have included a black/white version of the icons, which is used for the remote control. Of course, they could also be used standalone on a b/w player.

It works better with the included background, because icons were anti-aliased with that color as background.

The image below has four columns. This is only to compactly show how the icons look like. In the attached zip files they are organised in one column as they should.
