    W/o jailbreaking, for the most important fact that I can not Jailbreak a 3G ipod touch yet.. and not sure if I will want to anyways.

    I just want to be able to change a few icons, because I have some apps with "Free" and "Lite" and it just looks ghetto.

    I am pretty smart with computers, but I do not understand how icons are stored. I'm going to guess they are stored within the file itself somehow.

    I just wanted to know if there was a way to do it.

    I get the fact that at the moment its not possible. Which sucks.
    But I know for a fact.. ok maybe not fact, but should be.

    The files are ipa.. there should be someway to alter they're internal data without having to jailbreak.

    But thank you, you all answered my question

    no because in order for you to alter the files you would need to SSH into your device.. which needs to be jailbroken.

    that is IF they can be altered to begin with.

    It's called Rename in Cydia? Renames your apps.

    Well that's in Cydia though...which = jailbreak.
    Supernova actually you don't. You can use a USB transfer such as iFunbox etc.

    I have managed to break down the ipa file so I can see all the internals.
    I am going to attempt to edit the icon file now, and see if it will sync.

    I will let you know if it works
