Give .icns files a copy-and-pastable icon
Authored by: qwerty denzel on May 27, '05 02:29:13AM

Oops, sorry about my poor sentence layout (I said replace twice).

Here is an example:
1. Copy the Stickies app to your Desktop
2. Control click on it and choose Show Package Contents
3. Navigate to the Resources folder
3. Copy your icon to the open Resources folder
4. Delete the old one (in this case Stickies.icns)
5. Rename your new one to the name of the old one
6. Close all windows, and select the Stickies application on your Desktop
7. Choose File > Get Info
8. Select the icon in the general section and press delete
The app should now have the new icon which you can now copy and paste.

To keep things small, you really only need the .icns file and the 'CFBundleIconFile' item in the Info.plist file.
