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

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

- 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)

- 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:

5.png

(RdtIconCtrl_00^s & RdtBtnDirY^t = Controller-Icon)
(leave BNTX open)

- the icon file was extracted to the root directory


6.png


- 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!!!

7.png


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

8.png


9.png


- an attribute window opens, select the following settings:

10.png


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

11.png


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

12.png


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

- install HxD and open it

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

13.png


- (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"

14.png


Note:

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

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

18.png


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

19.png


- 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"

17.png


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

16.png


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

20.png


21.png


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

22.png


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

23.png
- open the "Toolpackage" folder and drag & drop the "ResidentMenu" folder over "createSZS.bat" its compress the "ResidentMenu.szs" and overwrite the old one

24.png


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

25.png


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

26.png

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

Done!
