    you can install it by following this steps
    download this tool: GCFScape http://rghost.net/38199139
    extract it anywhere
    run GCDScape.exe go to the menu
    click file open menu
    go to folder Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota open up file named pak01_dir.vpk
    right click on root and extract all and place it somewhere on your hd (this will take some time)
    after its done go to extracted files and cut all folders and paste them in Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota
    then rename pak01_dir.vpk to something else(pak01_dir__vpk for example) so it will tell dota to use local content instead of .vpk files
    now go to Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\resource\flash3\images\icons
    and replace all images with this one

    its quite complicated to install it but i hope valve should make it load from local files like cursors so we wont need to extract everything and stuff..

    is it able to only exchange some items instead all of yours?

    I talk about the dota2 Icons now:
    I'd like to have old reaver,hot, mjollnir,gem, magic wand, mystic staff, ultimate orb, headress, mask of madness, javelin, mithril hammer and satanic.
    A friend of mine likes the legacy versions more. So I modify it for him. I'd like to have the listed items for my version of dota2 please.

    yes of course
    do everything as i explained in previous posts except last step where you should replace only images(icons) that you need instead of replacing all of them

    what happens if D2 is patched? Do I need to reextract everything then?
    I edited Abyssal and Necro2. They didn't fit the original. If you want them, here they are.

    Edit: Just started. Got a screen of Purple and black Squares. Occured after I renamed it. However, if I do original name is normally loaded again

    The penultimate step isn't working -.- (Renaming) I guess, it doesnt take the "local" files. How do I fix this? Game doesn't load this way. The resolution also seemed to have changed from 128:64 to 86:64. What's the currently used resolution?

    Edit2: I didnt copy the components of root folder but the whole root fodler into the dota folder. After this change, It works now.

    A friend of mine made a tool which allow you to replace or add files to vpk without unpacking anything.
    I gathered it together for you: link.
