I have MIUI 8 installed on my smartphone. It looks great, however icons for non-stock apps look ugly. Is there any icon pack, so I can keep the stock theme, but have MIUI-style icons for popular third-party apps?
Finally, I've managed to do that:
You need to have a Xiaomi Designer Account, because MIUI 8 doen't allow installing custom themes unless you are a 'designer' You should go to http://designer.xiaomi.com/, sign up and enter valid data. After a day or so you will be able to import *.mtz files from the default MIUI theme manager.
Download an icon pack from MultiRom ROM. You can find them here: https://multirom.me/read.php?tid=343 (download link is in first post, sorry for russian)
After that you should open a theme manager, go to themes and import downloaded file. The final step is to select these icons in 'components' menu in theme manager
use something like polycon icon pack: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.thearclabs.polycon&hl=en
Install theme with extended icons There are themes available which contains more icons for MIUI8, search for the theme's name in your theme manager / theme store:
- eXtended 8 (1'000 icons visible for xiaomi.eu and official rom)
- V8-extended-icons (visible for chinese stable and beta)
- MultiROM Icons V8 (2'700 icons visible for chinese stable and beta)
If you have root and a custom recovery, you can flash:
Xposed module to enable MTZ import You can install Xposed framework for MIUI (by solarwarez), and then load the module RootToolsNeo. This module allows you to have the "import MTZ" option in your Theme Manager, even without having a Designer account. "Theme Crack"
Official Designer Account to import any MTZ file Another option is to apply with your Xiaomi Account as a Theme Designer. After your application has been granted, you will be able to import MTZ files that you've downloaded from anywhere.
