Sure. Show me.@t-ryder I hope you're not giving up on this, it has been couple of days since the download link is removed. Great work and it's so much better than the alternative. On an unrelated note I'll try to adapt my frequently used apps to the new live icon format, I can let you know about the results if you are interested.
The updater script removes/cleans up miui_mod_icons when flashing and puts the one included to the system. All you want to be there needs to be in the pack you flash.Hey man, props for this tool! I was searching for something similar for quite some time now, and have just stumbled upon it here by accident.
The thing I also like about it is that you can insert your own custom icons. For those who are wondering how to do that, you extract the .zip file, go to "..\system\media\theme\miui_mod_icons\" ...
Link is dead: "page can't be found".I made an add-on for the MIUI theming engine on XXHDPI devices running MIUI 8.
If you like the standard theme of MIUI 8 (as I prefer it), you can extend and skin your app icons
with this pack including thousands of app and activity icons.
Read the info at the download page please.

Check the updater script of MIA ex and learn to understand what it does.1. Is there a way to replace only the icons with those found inside miui_mod_icons folder, and leave the existing ones intact (so that you have the existing xiaomi.eu custom app icon, instead of removing it altogether and having default icon with white background)?
2. If not, is there a way or some existing script with which you can change each individual icon (so not all of them, but only the ones I want, by placing desired icons inside some folder, and then zipping it and flashing zip file)?
3. If not, is there a way to extract custom 3rd party app icons that are inside xiaomi.eu ROM, so I can place some of them inside your miui_mod_icons folder?
Link updated in OP.Link is dead: "page can't be found".
Variations with alternative icon masking and the MIUI 8 versions are discontinued and removed from the server. Sorry, I try to keep it simple and I share (with style) what I tinker for myself... And I use MIUI 9.Also I can't find your alternative icon pack: have you removed it?
Will check. Thanks a lot!Check the updater script of MIA ex and learn to understand what it does.
Here are some the icon resources of the xiaomi.eu weekly ROMs (that are needed to mod MIA ex), try to understand how the icon engine works.
Then modify MIA ex to your liking using 7-zip (you can unzip those files with no filetype) and notepad++ (on Windows).
