HA! YES! SUCK IT, APPLE, I'M GOING TO CHANGE MY SYSTEM FOLDER ICONS WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT!

*breathing hard*

For those who have updated to El Capitan and lost their custom icons:

-Shut computer down.
-Hold down Command + R and restart (release buttons once the gray apple icon appears on the screen)
-Wait for the dialogue box on a dark gray screen; bypass the dialogue and go up to the menu bar and select Utilities > Terminal.
-Type in: csrutil disable
-Hit return. Close Terminal and select Restart from the apple icon on the menu bar.

-Fire up LiteIcon or whatever icon swapper you use and swap out icons.
-To do it by hand navigate to System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle; right click and select "Show Contents" for CoreTypes; navigate to Contents/Resources; replace the system icons by hand.

-Now do that reboot, Cmnd+R, Terminal song and dance again.
-This time, type: csrutil enable
-Close out and restart, and lo you will have both your custom icons and your system integrity protection.


This process complicated, in my case, by the fact that none of my computer's boot screens will accept a tap on my trackpad as select/enter, and I had to go fish out my spare mighty-mouse from way back when to actually CLICK on anything.

*gives Apple two middle fingers, quite vigorously*

Oh god damn it. I just don't understand what problem they have with custom icons! They make it much easier for my impaired mind to locate a folder. Ugh!!!!

Thanks so much for the step by step. (I'm not upgrading until E.C. 10.11. 1)

I *just* discovered MailHub, ZOMG it makes Mail.app so much easier. I sure hope it works right with E.C.Mail.

Oh interesting! Thank you for this! :)

I'm still running Mavericks, because I just couldn't stand the look of Yosemite, but now that I've seen that E.C. isn't quite as ugly, I'm considering it. I just wish that this damn sleep wake error random restarts problem will have been fixed too. But I'm not holding my breath. At least, I'll wait until I can see if anyone reports about that on various forums.
