    Get a replacement launcher such as GoLauncher or ADW. There are a few apps in the market that let you change icons as well. Desktop Visulizer I believe is one of them.

    Make a folder on your SD card labeled "Icons", and then drop any files you want to use as icons in it. When you go to change the icon, it should ask you where to look...select Gallery, then the Icons folder...

    You`re right, it is trickier to do the Notification Bar icons. From what I can tell, the easiest way is to use MetaMorph or Ninjamorph to do the diting and then updating through the .zip files they create. Go to Droid Pirate and click on the Metamorph section...may find the info you are looking for...

    Word, I will do that, thanks for the help. And if anyone else knows coding and is familiar with coding on the droid X or other android phones. Im trying to put a team together to make a rom. I know coding but im never done it on android. I've done coding for mods on games like Call of Duty, Unreal Tournament, Counter Strike 1.6 and half life, as well as some RTS' like Rise of Nations, Star Craft, and some others. I've also done a few programs for Windows XP. I'm also familiar with animation and 3D modelling which I think would come in handy for boot animations and such. But like I said, im never done any coding for android, so im lookin for some people who are familiar with it. So PM if your interested
