    Okay I cannot figure out how to change the icon on widgets on my desktop. I open Bettercut in my drawer > new shortcut but don't know what to do here. It appears as though I should "Make your own" but how to properly fill this part out is not clear to me. Can't find any manuals online...I'm sure this is easy but I have no idea what I am doing.

    As an example I am trying to get a custom Handcent icon...

    Don't choose to make your own. Instead you go to 'activities' and after it loads (takes a bit sometimes) you'll see a list of applications. Choose the one you want and then click 'change icon' and If you want edit the name then press 'create.'

    email the developer of bettercut for instructions on "create your own" but...

    As far as I know, you can only edit static application icons NOT widget icons.

    If you're referring to the actual Handcent widget (that shows the unread count) then you can't change that with Bettercut, because it's not technically a shortcut, it's a widget. If you want to just change the launcher (shortcut icon) for Handcent, go to Bettercut > New Shortcut > Activity > Handcent SMS. I think the sub-name is HandcentExList or something like that. It should work to launch the app.
