    I'd like to use some of the custom icons that I see on the screenshots of other Droids. How do I accomplish this? Would I have to be rooted?

    If so, disregard :icon_evil:

    If not, contribute away dancedroid

    Well you could do it by downloading a package of the replacement icons and then using an app called desktop visualizer to place them as shortcuts on your stock desktop or use a home replacement like launcher pro or adw to do basically the same thing. Neither requires root

    I agree with the Launcher Pro app download recommendation . It totally changes the look of your home screen. Very customizable.

    I have LP but I don't know how to do any of the customization. I just have a basic homescreen with some of the apps changed in the dock.

    The icons are good for any android phone right? I don't have to look for Pro specific ones?

    Your best bet is to get "ADW Launcher" from the market, and then search "ADW themes" and you'll find a lot of cool themes.

    There's not a way to install these straight to the phone is there? Seems that I have to download to the computer and then put on the phone. Correct?

    There are free apps where you can customize icons and widgets to do almost anything.
