    You can put the icons on the SD Card in any folder. Use a FileBrowser (EStrong/Astro) to move/locate them. Once on the SD Card, you may need to rescan it (as i've just found out), using SDRescan.

    Then use something like: Apps Organiser / Folder Organiser to assign the new icons to the shortcuts/apps.

    There's a zillion icons here: Browse icon sets | Search and download free icons

    I used the FolderOrganizer last night. Looks like alot of instructions but if you take it a step at a time, by the time you have done a couple of icons, you'll not want to stop lol :D

    Dude, is there a tutorial somewhere which explains how to get the icons from icon browser to pc to phone to icon and what size and format is required :D I could spend all Sunday working it out in a hit and miss styleee or I could just ask ;)

    Cheers :D

    Yes, when you add the icon using DV select the 'small' widget size rather than 'small SS'
