    ive search online and no one gives a straight answer

    can i change the icons of certain apps? im using Home++ and DO NOT want a different home replacement app so dont suggest another one as a solution

    and second question is there a way to hide apps in the drawer that i dont ever use (amazon mp3, visual vm, etc.)? i know u can with panda home but once again dont want a different home replacement app

    There are apps in the Market that will allow you to change icons.

    FolderOrganizerLite comes to mind as it's free.
    There is also BetterCut.

    hiding apps in the tray can only be done with root and removing the app from the device.

    I tried FolderOrganizerLite but it stays running in the background to do this it really doesn't replace the icon, it just makes a shortcut in its programs therefore increasing load time and slows you down. Is there a way to manually change the icons via root explorer, or should I just spend the 1.99 on better cut?
