    I have another question, and I hope this belongs to the right place.

    So, I have went to /system/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources to reach the Finder icon for the dock. I replaced it with the icon I want (Replacing it) but it won't change. I went to terminal and typed 'killall Dock' and the dock does refresh, but it doesn't get the new icon. I tried Refinery, Candybar, but had no luck.

    What's even weirder is the trash icon, I have also replaced it, but will only show the new icon if you put trash in it/empty the trash. Otherwise, it would still be the original picture.

    Anyone know why this is happening? I have Snow Leopard, just in case.

    i have had that happen before. sometime it just takes a while to take effect. have you tried shutting down? or maybe a restart? also you said you did kill all dock, but have you tried FORCE quiting the finder? normally it wont change if it running right? and its always running... so try that. after you quit it it should just restart, and hopefully change your icon. mine is litho =)
