    I believe they are located within the .apk themselves. I could be wrong on this, but I seem to remember that. Also, IIRC, and .apk is just a .zip file with a different extension...


    yep...I just checked the gdocs .apk. opened it with winrar, and the icon (.png file) is in the /res/drawable folder.

    gmail apk is in /system/app

    but I don't see the icon in there...but I am browsing from my phone...so who knows...it is probably somewhere in the apk though.

    Not sure why you want to know this, but there is a map pack of them in the market. You need something like bettercut to open them though.

    As far as I know, you can only access that folder when your phone is rooted
    (..but i might be wrong), which I am thinking of doing soon...and then you can even edit your widget icons. (with bettercut you cannot)
