    Hey there. Are you rooted? Cause if you are rooted there are ways of popping out your apps, changing the icons on them and popping them back on your system. It's pretty easy once you read up on it, if your a little of a computer guy.

    You CAN use bettercut for the icons, but I never liked that program personally only because its a bad UI and it only makes 'shortcuts' on your home screen, bot actually changing the APK icon (like its still the same in the drawer and such ya know). Oh, and it's almost 420 here too.

    Yeah pretty much the above, you can change them if you are rooted. One slight problem with it, is that market apps every time you update you have to remodify the file, to change the icon.

    If you were looking for a free way to change the icon, and not be rooted, check out Folder Organizer on the market. There is a premium version of it, but the free version should be able to do it.
