As far as I get this, you want to change your icons-set instantly from one to another, right?
You would better start theming!
Otherwise, you can connect your idevice to your computer using a programm that lets you browse your iphone. You are looking for any folder called "application" (there are two, don't ask me why).
In this application folder you can click on one application and find there the icon. Most of the "real button icons" are called firstname.lastname@example.org (2x stands for retina), icon.png would be non-retina display. Some of the apps have specialised endings like icon@2x-iPad.png or something to differenciate between iphone and ipad. The file info.plist will give you information about the icons, usually the first icon listed is the icon the user pushes to start the app. Cave: in the info file they're called only icon.png -> thats not the icon you want to change, you want the email@example.com
You can change the original icons name to .png.bak what stands for ba(c)kup file in this case and load your custom icon in the folder, named right.
I guess you are aware that the icons must have the correct size.
