    Hey,

    In Mac OSX Finder in the Shared Section, I'd like to change one of the computer Icons.

    Example:

    As you can see, I'd like to change the PC's BSOD Icon to something like this:
    [​IMG]

    Is that possible?

    Thanks!

    Re:

    It is possible but all other PCs will have the same icon.

    First, all the icons used for the sidebar are located here: Macintosh HD>System>Library>CoreServices. There you have to right-click on CoreTypes.bundle and press «Show Package Content».

    The bluescreen icon is the one named public.generic-pc.icns. For OS X to use the icon you want to use, you must convert your image file into a .icns file.

    I suggest you backup the old one, just in case:)

    Good luck and I hope I am not too late!

    Thanks for your reply. I managed to sort it out a few weeks ago, but thanks again!

    Dylan.

    No?

    Does anyone know how to do this per device. As in have two like devices have different icons? I want my NAS to look like the actual model and I want my iPhone (jailbroken) to show up as an actual iPhone
