    Is there a way to edit original icons in photoshop without rooting the droid, or is rooting the way to go to change the icons.

    Why not just make the icon in photoshop and then change the one on the phone. I made some of mine mimic the originals but with other colors. Also make my own originals. Just make them png.

    I use bettercut to change them.

    I never could pull them from the phone but there is an app apk out there that has all of the original icons for people who don't have a Droid and want the look. Might check into that. Might be able to pull them from that. Sorry don't have a link but shouldn't be to hard to google. I just looked at the originals and made my own from scratch on photoshop. Did have some help on one though.

    I will try to do it and see if I can get them on the computer right now.

    Here is the set of icons I was talking about Icon Pack - Android 2.0 v1.0 Application for Android | Themes

    Looks like you would have to port them to the sd card and then open them running the adndroid sdk to get them. Might be easier to root and do it idk. You could write the dev and ask for a set. Might be the easiest thing. Just trying to help.
