How-to/Steps to Customize for a newbie
I think I've searched high and low in the forums but I can't figure it out.
I just got the fascinate and I am running the free version of Launcher Pro. I deleted all the widgets from the TW screen. And I have beautiful widgets.
1. How do I change the icons in the main dock (phone, contact, app, msging, browser). Do they have to stay the same? Can I change the way they look as well as what I want there? When I add things to the scrollable dock, they are colored but the main five are not. Also, when I touch the contact icon, it says it is unable to work. Is this normal?
2. Root: Should I root my phone and if so, how do I backup what I already have (Launcher Pro, Beautiful Widgets, and all the other apps)? What are the pros/cons to rooting?

i am able to change the shortcut but i can't change the icon.
when i press and hold say the phone icon, i get 3 choices: change shortcut, change icon, and swipe gesture action. touching "change icon" gives me 2 choices: launcherPro icons and custom icons. There isn't anything in either option.

Ok i figured it out. The LauncherPro icons are gray and white right?
I thought that if I clicked on one of those, there would be more options in color.
Does anyone know how to put the + sign back where the icon was. I didn't want that icon there and now it's blank.

First, thank you for helping this newbie. =D
I haven't rooted yet. I still need to back-up everything I downloaded and I don't know how to do that yet.
So I found some icons online that I would like to use on my Fascinate.
Could I do this by just creating a folder on my miniSD and naming it Icons? Or do I have to have a specific app (Better Cut) to do this?
