    OK, truly I do apologize if I missed this discussion elsewhere. Also...this seems like a hack, so I believe it belongs here =)

    I would like to rename an app in my app drawer. Say for example

    "Google Translate"

    I'd like to instead rename it to "Translate" (or anything else).

    How would I go about doing such a thing?

    ---Also...can the icon be changed as well?

    Thanks to you guys for the incredible Droid hacking community!

    ok yes that is pretty cool =)

    Awesome program. Thank you for the reference (and the Q code to boot!)

    I was thinking though...in a more "free" solution. Although 2$ really isn't much...this is for one icon and one app. I'd just as soon uninstall it than pay to change it's face.

    I don't mind getting a bit down and dirty with the programs. I do have it rooted and have sholes 1.1 installed.

    Admittedly, I do not know linux commands other than the basic stuff (VERY basic). Just what I gleaned from the boards here.
