    Qlaunch custom Menue-Icon's


    I take no responsibility for your switch if you follow this guide!

    [​IMG]

    Required:

    - Photoshop

    - Intel DDS Plugin for Photoshop - http://gametechdev.github.io/Intel-Texture-Works-Plugin/
    - HxD - https://mh-nexus.de/downloads/HxDSetup.zip
    - Toolpackage -http://snip.li/8LTII (too big for a direct upload)
    - your own ResidentMenu.szs file




    - extract the Toolpackage and copy your ResidentMenu.szs file into it

    [​IMG]

    - drag and drop the "ResidentMenu.szs" over "extractSZS.bat"
    a folder is created called "ResidentMenu"

    [​IMG]

    - go to the following path: "Toolpackage\ResidentMenu\timg" and copy the "__Combined.bntx" file to the root of the "Toolpackage folder"
    (you need them later)

    [​IMG]

    to

    [​IMG]

    - now, start BNTX Injector with a double click on BNTX_Injector.bat and open the __Combined.bntx file (path: Toolpackage\ResidentMenu\timg)

    - follow the steps below to extract the icon file:

    [​IMG]
    (RdtIconCtrl_00^s & RdtBtnDirY^t = Controller-Icon)
    (leave BNTX open)

    - the icon file was extracted to the root directory


    [​IMG]

    - download and install the Intel DDS Plug-In
    - open your icon file with Photoshop and edit it

    IMPORTANT : Do not change the picture size and just use the color white to create your own icon!!!

    [​IMG]

    - when done, go to "File" and then "Save As"

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    - an attribute window opens, select the following settings:

    [​IMG]

    - go back to BNTK Injector and replace the original icon with yours

    [​IMG]

    - uncheck "Use SRBG when possible" and press "OK"

    [​IMG]

    Fist step done!
    Now you have to fix the color levels!

    - install HxD and open it

    - click on "Analyzis" -> "File Compare" -> "Compare"

    [​IMG]

    - (1) browse for "Source file" the copied original file from the root "\Toolpackage" directory "__Combined.bntx"

    (2) and for "Target file", the "__Combined.bntx" with you custom Icon from the "Tool Package \ ResidentMenu \ timg"

    (3) press "OK"

    [​IMG]

    Note:

    HEX_CODE Channels:
    Zero = 00
    One = 01
    Red = 02
    Green = 03
    Blue = 04

    original channels for Album-Icon: 01 01 01 02 (HEX)

    [​IMG]

    custom Icon channels in my case: 02 02 02 01 (HEX)

    [​IMG]

    - now you need to find the four modified color channels to repair them

    to find the differences, press "F6" to see the next difference, again "F6"

    [​IMG]

    you need to find the place where the value of your channels are displayed next to each other, above those of the original channels and below those of the custom icon

    [​IMG]

    - if you find them, overwrite the values with the originals

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    - then make sure that the custom icon "__Combined.bntx" window is selected and click "File" -> "Save as" and save it to your desktop

    [​IMG]

    - copy the "__Combined.bntx" from the desktop to "Toolpackage/ResidentMenu/timg" and ovewrite the old one

    [​IMG]
    - open the "Toolpackage" folder and drag & drop the "ResidentMenu" folder over "createSZS.bat" its compress the "ResidentMenu.szs" and overwrite the old one

    [​IMG]

    - create on your Switch-SD-Card the following folder path: atmosphere\titles\0100000000001000\romfs\lyt
    And copy the "ResidentMenu.szs" file into \lyt

    [​IMG]

    You also have to create an empty file called fsmitm.flag into following folder path: "atmosphere\titles\0100000000001000"

    [​IMG]

    And last but not least, start your Switch with newest Layeredfs.

    Done!


    You just want the HBL Icon, Cartridge Icon or SXOS Icon ?

    Do News, power, settings and eshop icons need to be symmetrical (so that you need to make just one half)?

    I thought residentmenu was only for 6.0? What fw version is this guide for?

    probably for all firmwares, have not tested it. But it should behave the same everywhere

    I was trying to tell you to remove it :D. It's against the rules here.

    Maybe, it is still against the rules tho (and if you mean for example quantumcat, he removed it).

    I can't find a place for "White1x1_180^r.dds" in any ResidentMenu File's to change my Menu Background to my desired choice, is something else taking its place?

    Lol, yeah I found out I needed to place the ResidentMenu.szs into the same "lyt" folder, wasn't sure if it would recognize multiple szs files, or if I would have to combine them somehow xD
