    They're all in the default app apks, which would be in /system/app. Be careful editing them, though. Some apps won't work again after being modified.

    ok, they are in each app's apk, which is in /system
    they will most likely be in the folder res/drawable-hdpi

    if you are rooted then use terminal or adb to copy whatever you want onto the sdcard, someone might be able to give you specific commands but if you dont know where /system is then you probably shouldnt be messing with it anyways

    download root explorer

    go to system/app

    mount as r/w, pick the apk you want, copy it to sdcard

    open sdcard on computer, rename apk to .zip

    open zip look for res/drawable-hdpi

    wherever you see a pic that looks like the stock icon, edit/remove/change/whatever

    save it. zip it back up using winrar as *app name*.zip. rename to *app name*.apk and put back on phone..

    someone else is gonna have to tell you the commands to get it back on the right way but im 99% sure everything i typed is right..

    Pretty sure the icons are going to be named 'icon.png'

    Another way to do this: Download the virginoem-backup zip file from sholes.info (here, here or here)

    Unzip that to a folder of your choice. Inside there, there will be a system folder. Inside of that will be an app folder. Inside of that will be all of the stock programs in apk form. Rename them to zip, extract them to their own folders, then go to <packagename>/res/drawable-hdpi and look for an image that looks like the icon.
