This tool, developed for Windows 8 RTM, allows you to change background and accent color of the immersive start screen in Windows 8.

For the background you can select a custom one by selecting your own image. The wizard will guide you to create the new skin.

Is this 100% for sure safe to use?
Pasquiindustry Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013
At this time no, this program edit system files, so never is safe in thsi case, but maybe I will update this tool for safe using without system file editing (but maybe...)

I patched A Background
but nothing comes in the custom background tile so I can't really change the background :/
any solutions?
Pasquiindustry Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012
I don't know, there are similar problems with other, but there aren't solutions.
In some computers, imageres.dll is inacessible but I don't know how unlock it :(
Try to reboot and restart the procedure (as administrator).
Yopu can try to take ownership of imageres.dll manually

I found that we must copy the imageres.dll files to the patch folder, we can get modified file, in which case we must manually replace the imageres.dll files to the System32 folder. This is what we will be able to change a custom background in Charmbar > settings > change pc settings
The editated background is the second one.

Yes, exactly.
Sometimes it function by my tool, but sometimes no, but I don't know how resolve :(

It does not seem to work. Nothing happens. It does not add the image I selected to the themes there already. I am on Windows 8 Pro 64bit.
