I created a basic tool for swapping icons(Windows/DOS only right now). Real easy to use. You can either double click the .bat file or run it command line. Either way it works for swapping icons in/out of com.htc.resources.apk, framework-res.apk, and SystemUI.apk.

Only gotcha is that it is case sensitive providing the APK name. I'd love to hear feedback if you give it a try. I'll revise this again in a bit after I get some feedback. If there's interest I'll build one that allows XML swaps as well.

Directions.
Copy the apk file to the directory with this script.

Run the script either from command line or windows

Follow the prompts

Just that easy

Okay, you used to be a helpful guy, now you are an enabler!

I was thinking maybe I should learn to theme a bit so I can make everything exactly to my liking but I have already spent way too much time learning all the root stuff and setting up my phone and now I find this post. Ay-ay-ay...

any reason you could think that this wouldn't work for the Tbolt?

I don't know how the framework is laid out, but in theory it should work for any HTC phone that uses com.htc.resources. Only problem is that some icons may belong in different places. But that part is on the user anyway...
