Well for #2, I was not trying to unblock my blackberry, I was trying to make the application work; thanks anyway. I re-did a little search yesterday and I found Ascendo Money which I bought and which is very good. So problem #2 resolved.
Now problem #1 is more like a pseudo problem, but I would still like to find an answer. A good way to solve it would be to be able to change the icons of the applications to custom ones without changing the theme; but I don't know if that is do-able.
