Help with Application Icons
So i have a question that's really been bothering me... ugh...
I know how the general way to change an icon for an application is to go to the [I]Get Info[I] button on the Application file itself, then copy and past the new icon onto the old icon. Been there done that.
Also i even went into the Show Package button thing, went into resources, and changed the icon to new one, ending the file name in .icns :)
However, after these two attempts i still have complications.
The application, when not in use, bears the new icon, but when opened, switches back to the old, original icon. It does this for Skype, and an app called Pinger, which is this free texting app that i have... Is there a way to correct this? Because it's really annoying that it does this. Moreover, all the other apps that i have tried this method on have changed its icon successfully, excepting those two apps. Please help!

Are you talking about icons in the Finder window (Applications Folder) or in the Dock, or both? If the former, just don't look at the window when the application is running.

you could try this out:
its now free! although it is unsupported. but ey' its free and it works.
i find the prob you are having with apps returning back to original is when they update.

Option 1: Are you making an alias of the application and changing that icon before dragging it to the Dock?
Option 2: Or are you changing the application's icon and then dragging that to the Dock?
Option 3: Or, are you doing either of the above, except not removing the icon that was already in the Dock and replacing it?
