    Is there any way to replace main tile with Iconic Tile?

    Hi Alex,

    The main tile type is defined in the application's WMAppManifest. You can see there is a Tile Template, which is TemplateFlip by default. You can change it to iconic and then you'll be able to update it with LiveTileHelper by using the RadIconicTileData.

    I hope this information helps.

    Hi Alex,

    Apologies for misunderstanding.

    In Windows Phone 7 apps, the flip Tile is the only supported template for the default tile. The new templates can be used only for secondary tiles.
