    It seems Apple has stopped letting users change icons of system apps since High Sierra?

    I used to be able to change the icons (with other .icns) of mail, disk, safari or any other Apple app but no longer :(

    Anyone can confirm?

    Have you turned off System Integrity Protection?

    What's that for and how do you turn it off?

    Here's a link explaining what it is and how to disable/enable it. You can disable SIP, change your icons (I use LiteIcon), and then reenable SIP. Keep in mind that when a system app gets an update, it'll likely revert to the original icon and you'll have to repeat the procedure.
