I was sick of the pink MobileMe iDisk icons, so I changed the colors to blue, not pink. They are attached below...Just go to HARD DRIVE/System/Library/CoreServices then right click CoreTypes.bundle and click show package contents. Then open Contents and then Resources and find copy iDiskGenericIcon.icns and iDiskUserIcon.icns and move those to the your Desktop (or any other folder, just SAVE THEM, just incase). Download these two new files and drag them into the Resources folder. Then just log out and back in and presto! There is just not 4 different icons in this just one. I actually do not know what all of the different sizes do, thats why we made backups. So if you don't like them, just put the originals back. Hope this helps anyone annoyed by the new icons. NOTE I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING HARMED IN THE PROCESS, but there shouldn't be a problem.

EDIT: Also, thanks to RICHTHOMAS, I missed one iDisk file. So download the second attachment (a 48X67 iDisk graphic) and place it in /System/Library/CoreServices/AOS.bundle/Contents/Resources . MAKE SURE YOU BACK THE OLD ONE UP if you want it back later.

Thank you so much for these. The purple icons were just a little too feminine for my tastes.

haha no problem..

If anyone has any other icons they want changed, I'd be happy to do it. Also I think I know how to make the Apple Icon the original blue instead of the boring black in Leopard...but not positive... I will post back later.

theres also an iDisk icon in /System/Library/CoreServices/AOS.bundle/Contents/Resources just in case OS X uses the icon somewhere else ;)

I forgot to post in this thread before.

I'm really happy that someone decided to make these. The default purple/pink one was just awful. It didn't fit Mac OS X and it didn't fit MobileMe's other designs. The blue is perfect.

I've recommended these to a few friends as well.

I must have misunderstood your post, but I thought you were referring to the iDisk icon on the MobileMe webapp site. Sadly, I don't own a Mac so I can't really use this but it looks pretty sweet nonetheless.

Great. Thanks. I don't know what Apple was thinking with the pink.

Anyone want to post a screenshot of what they looked like before? I haven't mounted my iDisk yet and I'm not at my Mac at the moment.

Were they seriously pink with a white cloud? Wow...

Thanks for the non-feminine icon. I'd seriously like to kick the person that said lets make the icon pink.

stovetop6872: Just replaced the original iDisk icons with yours and they look way better. Thanks for the icons. Good work.

Pink isn't that horrible... I'd make my entire computer pink if my GF wanted me to.

If you use the "built in" idisk icon in Finder, it uses http, not https (meaning everything is sent in clear text).

If you want to add SSL encryption, simply ignore that icon (disable it in Finder prefs if you want) and create your own connection:

with the Finder menu active, press command-k (or select "GO" from the menu, then "Connect to Server"). In the "server address" box type https://idisk.me.com/your-mobileme-name, click the plus sign to save it to the favorites list, click the "connect" button, log in and you're done.

Your blue icons are fantastic, but my system is in graphite.
Could you do the same icons in graphite instead of blue ???

Thank you so much....:D

I believe I followed the instructions properly, but the icon disappeared in the sidebar. the words are there and the drive is functioning properly, but there is no icon. The icon changed and looks great in finder. What to do?

I used time machine to restore. oh well. I'll have to try it again.

Does anyone know why they disappeared &/or what I can do to repair them?

the iDisk icon has changed. I thought they'd do this as the iDisk app on the iPhone is blue.

Kinda liked the pink though :( much better to have a nice range of diverse colours, rather than grey HD, blue folders, blue iDisk icon!

I liked the pink icon. :(

It just shows that you can't please everyone :mad:

I like the blue one. I am very happy that Apple has decided to change it to blue, so I don't have to change it back after every update!

:p

Anyway, here is the pink one from 10.5.7:
