Finding the System icons in 10.2 System
The location of the system icons in Jaguar has changed. Instead of being placed in HIToolbox.rsrc, submerged in a path roughly equivalent to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, they are in a new file and a new location. The directory is /System -> Library -> CoreServices -> SystemIcons.bundle -> Contents -> Resources, and the exact file is SystemIcons.icns. OOoooh! Intuitive!!!!

Note, though, that this isn't everything! The most notable exception is mounted drive icons (like those from .dmg files). So a little more detective work is on order. But in the meantime, bust out Iconographer and get rid of those ugly folders!

CandyBar drag and drop system icon changer
Authored by: kahless on Aug 30, '02 11:16:05AM
I had found the SystemIcons.rsrc soon after upgrading and edited all the icons the old fashioned way with Iconographer. I also noted the lack of mounted drive icons and haven't tracked them down. Imagine my surprise and delight when CandyBar showed up on ResExcellence and Versiontracker. CandyBar allows you to change the system icons (including mounted drives) just by dragging a replacement icon into the icon well. It made my hour of editing seem like a waste. If you like to customize your system, I would highly recommend CandyBar.
