    Alright, so I've got a huge, huge.. did I say huge?.. list of icon requests that have been coming in. Too large for me to ever accomplish in a timely fashion on my own. But YOU can help! First, check out the list of requests: here. <-- that's a link to a google doc.

    So here's how you can help. Download one of those apps, pull it off your phone and get me the icon.png from inside. Also, run the application and then pull the logcat and send me that so I can grab the activity name. OR, get the activity name yourself and reply to this thread with the name and the image attached.

    I'll add more instructions shortly if you are unsure how to do any of this.

    Edit:

    Ok, so we'll use Opera Mini as an example for finding the activity in a logcat.

    Code:
    I/ActivityManager( 1213): Start proc com.android.voicedialer for broadcast com.android.voicedialer/.VoiceDialerReceiver: pid=4906 uid=10035 gids={3002}
    I/ActivityManager( 1213): No longer want android.process.acore (pid 1982): hidden #16
    I/ActivityManager( 1213): No longer want com.handcent.nextsms (pid 1553): hidden #16
    I/ActivityManager( 1213): Starting activity: Intent { act=android.intent.action.MAIN flg=0x10000000 cmp=com.opera.mini.android/.Browser bnds=[0,131][480,227] }
    I/ActivityManager( 1213): Start proc com.opera.mini.android for activity com.opera.mini.android/.Browser: pid=4918 uid=10046 gids={3003, 1015}
    The fourth line has the juicy stuff we want. 'Starting activity: Intent' is typically what you can search for in the log file in order to find what we need. So in this case "com.opera.mini.android/.Browser" is the activity name of Opera mini. If you really want to be helpful, format it correctly before submitting. The way to do that is to change the periods to underscores and just omit any forward slash thus leaving us with 'com_opera_mini_android_browser' as the final submitted activity name.

    Now, I also need the icon image. If you have never set up adb before, I'm going to explain a cheat version that will allow us to bypass that. We will need a file explorer that allows us to see /data/app and I'm going with Root Explorer. (Honestly, its the best thing ever - so you should pay for it and get it.) I navigated to data/app and found the apk for Opera which was named 'com.opera.mini.android-1.apk' (the dash-number doesn't really matter). Long-press and select copy, navigate to sdcard and paste. Now we can just mount our sdcard and pull the apk that way without having to screw with command lines or setting up drivers.

    Once you've got the apk on your computer, right-click and extract it to a folder (I recommend 7zip). Now search through the /res/drawable folders until you locate the png that is the icon. Then you can simply attach that to your post along with the activity name. Thanks for any assistance and feel free to post an app that isn't even listed in case you had a request as well.
