    I was wondering if there was a way to make custom tiles for existing apps? I'm talking stagnant tiles, not live tiles. Or at least the main icon for a live tile. For example if I wanted to change the main Facebook tile image to transparent is there a png or gif file that I can find and modify?

    I have done this in the past with other mobile OS to have my own custom icon, but not sure if windows mobile allows it.

    Thank you.

    You would have to install an app that has replacement icons. There are a few that have just that. For example, check out Transparent Tile+

    It has more than 100 tiles you can replace. It's pretty cool.

    Skinnery Themes and Start Perfect are also useful for building your own tiles.

    Do live tiles still work with this? Meaning flip tiles?

    Thank you.
