    no. you can't change the icons.
    you can use home screen plus by Shao-soft and add widgets to the home screen, add blank icons for spacing, etc. Check out the screen shot thread here and see what we do with it.

    It actually seems possible as Apollo_IV did it on an older version of 10.3.1 (see below) but as I understood, it requires a lot of time and you have to do it manually for each application after an update.

    But totally agree that it would be a great feature. Tuning is not really Blackberry's motto...

    There is a method where you can change the Android app icons, but i don't remember it
    Native apps are a no go

    Edit: Niah beat me to it, was referring to that

    They said upon release that they're not gonna support themes on BB10. I know that doesn't stop them from changing their minds but to say something like that in the state they were in 2 years ago is ballsy so I'm assuming they really meant it.

    They also said they were gonna move forward to the modern idea of all-touchscreen, but due to popular demand, their flagship device once again has a keyboard.

    Except at launch they put out the Q5 and the Q10. Just because they said they'd be making full-touch devices didn't mean they weren't ever making a phone with a physical keyboard again.

    You can do it, but it requires you to have LOTS of knowledge about the BB10 OS and app system
    Basically you'd need to know how to code and use dev tools
    I'm not going to share how to do it because people are going to mess up their own device, as the icon is tied to the app itself.
    I know I'll probably get some hate for not sharing, but I prefer not to share how to "break" a device if it's not even broken

    Did not find a thumb down, so you got a thumb up ;-)
    Just kidding... I understand that this could be dangerous...
    As it is with leaks... I did never install them...

    Thanks anyway... Now is there any chance that /YOU/, sir, make an App, say for 1 symbolic dollar, that changes that for us??

    Not "legally" by BlackBerry standards
    What you would need to do is have access to bar files, and edit them that way

    If I remember correctly, the process is to get an image that's sufficiently similar (size-wise) to the original icon, package it into a bin file (with or without the original app, can't remember) and load that with CFP to the specific region of memory where the app is stored, overwriting the icon.

    Too much of a hassle for regular use, too limited in function and it really only works on a fresh load of the OS.

    It's definitely possible but requires a lot of time I think xSacha was trying to explain how in one of his threads but I didn't have the time to try it myself.

    Is this still possible on newest firmware? I try to dump region with software with CFP tool, but it says what firmware is encrypted. Nevertheless it can dump all encrypted firmware, what I think, useless.
