    How do I find some icon packs that will work on the stock launcher?

    I heard we can change icons without being rooted, is this true?

    If so, how do I know which ones work since most are made for aftermarket launchers?

    Yes TW is the stock launcher and Samsung default...I tested b4 I posted and it's working...Just download DV ...long press from app drawer and place on home screen you want a custom shortcut..pick icon and app action within DV...you can do all the ones you need on screens and when done remove the DV icon one...Let us know how it goes...( you can use ADW icons and plenty of others from the market and various sites...)

    I tried, but couldn't figure it out. too many steps to go through. I'm not patient at all with computers so I won't do it if it's not incredibly simple.

    thanks for the help though :)

    3. Pick icon pack and icon
    4. Select app to launch
    5 done and on homescreen
