    I can't seem to change it at all. How do I do it?

    You should be able to do it with an app like Candy Bar, don't believe you can do it naturally without going into your coreservices folder.

    If you want to do it manually, the Finder icon file is in /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Resources/Finder.icns

    You should try candybar. I think there is a free trial, sometimes the computer takes a few reboots before the finder icon change will go into effect.
