    I jailbroke my 3G earlier in the week and it is working great. I downloaded biteSMS and I really like the program, but I have 1 complaint. I'm so used to looking for a green icon for SMS and now it's pink. How can i just change that icon to green? I'm not sure if I need to use SSH to do it but I have no experiance. Thanks for any help!

    Yes, you will need to SSH.

    Here is an awesome tutorial on how to do that.

    To change just one icon, you will need to create a theme, and add the icon that you would like to replace in an icon folder.

    Here is the specific information for theming an icon.

    If you're unsure of how to get started with your new theme, start from the beginning. :)
