I've searched all through this site, and couldn't find a location for the icon files in iOS 4.2.1. I found the locations, and decided it was so ridiculous I should post something on here for anyone repeating my search. It's bad news friends, all of the icon.png files are located under their individual pathways,
and then you'll have to open each individual folder to search for the app you wish to change. An example would be;
And if you have that one, it's because you have the application "Camera Plus", which you'll see a folder for. After you open that folder you'll have to find the icon.png, and replace it with a new icon.png of your choosing. If you're using an iPhone4, you'll be replacing the icon @ 2x.png, or icon-iPhone @ 2x.png, IF there's one available. It's taken me half an hour to figure this out, and it'll take hours to systematically replace all of my icons... I believe I'll pass on that and keep using a pre-installed theme.
Nevertheless, I decided to share the pathway for anyone else interested. If this is in the wrong thread, please move it. I simply couldn't find a thread for iOS 4.2.1.
I hope this is helpful for someone else!
