    In 10.3 the generic system folder was an easy thing to replace. I'm wondering how to do it in 10.4. Will I need to dig about in a combined rsrc file?

    10.4 is great but now I'm back with those blue pinstripe folders. eek :eek:

    Yeah, I could pay some money to be none the wiser.

    A little on the overkill side of things just to change on generic folder.

    any other ideas?

    can't you still do it the old way (cmd+i, then copy and paste in a new icon), or am I missing the point? :confused:

    An old method of changing System Icons in OS X was to open SystemIcons.rsrc with Iconographer and change icons. It was located in 10.3 in /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemIcons.bundle/Contents/Resources/ Though this may no longer work in Tiger. I don't know I use CandyBar now. It's just easier.
