I asked previously here at MR about using custom icons in El Cap and was told that it is possible to temporarily shut off System Integrity Protection which permits you to change icons. That's good. What about setting new folders to always use custom icon by default? I use LiteIcon to perform this in Yosemite; what is the fix for El Cap, if there is any? I want to upgrade from Yosemite for many of El Cap's benefits, but I can't stand default Apple folders in Yosemite and El Cap. Argh! System Integrity Protection https://developer.apple.com/library...acOSX/WhatsNewInOSX/Articles/MacOSX10_11.html A new security policy that applies to every running process, including privileged code and code that runs out of the sandbox. The policy extends additional protections to components on disk and at run-time, only allowing system binaries to be modified by the system installer and software updates. Code injection and runtime attachments to system binaries are no longer permitted.
