    want to change the GMail icon to the same green as everything else.

    use an image editor to create an icon of your choosing. send it to your phone. save it. go into bettercut and edit your gmail shortcut. Click on "change icon" and then choose your picture from wherever you saved it.

    GIMP is pretty good and not as complicated as Photoshop ... and it's free

    You might also want to search icon packs in the Market. Just about all of 'em are free. Odds are, there might be one with a green theme, containing oodles of potential replacement icons.

    The clock is Beautiful Widgets. You have a choice of many skins (including transparent) to chose from.

    Easiest solution would be to install the Gmail Unread Count widget (which allows you to see how many unread emails there are). When you add the widget, it allows you to pick an icon, including "2D Green" and "3D Green."
