    if anyone interested in customizing tiles with a themes you can tell the programmer about your opinion cause he need people feed back about this app
    to release it or not for the public



    Curiosity and boredom are necessary for innovation. At least that's what we tell ourselves. Here's a fun little hack by Jaxbot, which allows customizing any start menu tile on the device. This enables a "theme" of sorts, as seen above. One customization method uses a background behind the default tile design, whereas the other replaces from completely with custom images.

    It actually works fairly well, and could be a cool hack for the upcoming holiday season. Our question is, how much interest is there for a public release? We're asking about the concept, here, not our sloppy artwork ;)

    Requirements are on the light side, needing only a developer unlock (Chevron Labs will do fine). If there's decent public interest, we'll release more info on it soon. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

    Update: We're working on it, hang tight! Keep tabs on this site, and our Twitter and Youtube pages for more updates.

    I got a reply that its only possible for dev unlocked phones. Since it requires native code access it will not be possible in the marketplace. Which sucks.
