    The majority of the UI elements are contained in /system/framework/framework-res.apk. The files can be extracted from this using any ZIP-compatible tool e.g. WinZip, WinRAR, 7-Zip etc.

    Homescreen icons can be changed with something like AnyCut, BetterCut etc. Most replacement launcher apps also support icon packs and/or themes.

    I believe you'd need root access to put themed files back into the /system/ folder though.
