Today I got iTunes 10 through Mac OS update. Beautiful though the rest of the program is, the icon is pretty hideous (see Twitter’s coverage). So, I thought, with a bit of knowledge of the layout of .app files it shouldn’t be too hard to replace it with something I like. Here’s how.
Resources; this is where all the programs images are
iTunes.icnsin this folder; rename it to something else (
cd /Applications/iTunes.app/Contents/Resources/ && sudo mv iTunes.icns iTunes_old.icns
Get Infoand rename it to iTunes.icns
Once this is all done your dock icon (if iTunes is in your dock) should change to the new icon. Enjoy your lovely new icon! One thing; I can’t confirm whether future updates to iTunes will wipe this out, so YMMV.
