    Hello guys,

    I've nexus one and I am a non-rooted guy. Is it possible to change theme/icons in my nexus one without rooting?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can create custom icons/shortcuts with a program like Bettercut. For themes, try some alternate launchers like Adw or LauncherPro. Adw has downloadable themes on the market and LauncherPro gives you some great custom dock options.

    Not "themes" per se, but you can change the dock backgrounds, what icons are in the dock, etc. You'll have to manually change each shortcut icon separately, so if you're like me, and you change "themes" often, just make shortcuts and keep them in folders for later use.

    I've also found that Desktop Visualizer is a much more streamlined version of bettercut, it's free but offers less functionality.

    Apps Organizer works well for changing icons, too.

    There are no icons for call and people.. All icons are related to PC. Can anybody post icons for mobiles?
