Change iSync device icons
Authored by: Scifiguy on Aug 30, '05 05:24:47PM

I tried this with the Palm folder to change the icon for my Treo, but it didn't work. Every place I could find within the iSync app package I changed the icon for "Tungsten.tiff" (which is what shows up for my Treo 650, even though there is a Treo icon hidden in there), and it doesn't change the icon in iSync like it used to in 10.3.9. Anyone have any ideas?

Change iSync device icons for Motorola devices
Authored by: strickm on Dec 27, '05 04:42:05AM
I am using Mac OS X 10.4.3 and have a black Motorola Razr V3. I wanted to have the black icon displayed in iSync, so I used the previous hints to determine how to change the device icon displayed in iSync for the Razr V3 from a silver to a black model phone. Mac OS X 10.4.3 already contains the necessary icon.

First, open the following file with the Property List Editor (installed with XCode developer suite) application:

/Applications/iSync.app/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice/Contents/PlugIns/PhoneModelsSync.phoneplugin/Contents/Resources/MetaClasses.plist
Next, locate the string that defines the icon used with the Motorola Razr V3 phone. The PhoneIcon string in the plist is the correct value to change from silver to black. The hierarchial path within the plist to the PhoneIcon string is:
Root --> com.motorola.razorV3 --> Services --> 0 --> ServiceProperties --> PhoneIcon
Change the value of the PhoneIcon string from
MOTV3-silver.tiff
to
MOTV3-black.tiff
Then, relaunch iSync and you should expect to see the black icon for the Razr V3.
