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*

Honestly, can't they test anything any more?

For the benefit of others whose iTunes suddenly no longer connects to their older AirPorts for in-house streaming: You just need to turn off IPv6 on your network settings (because older AirPorts can't handle that protocol and Lion plus newer iTunes makes it the default).

Open Terminal.

Paste in: networksetup -setv6off Wi-Fi

Return. Paste in: networksetup -setv6off Ethernet

Return. Restart iTunes, connect to your bloody AirPorts and enjoy once again. Possibly pause to shower curses on the new management of Apple who apparently don't allow for little things like backwards compatibility any more.

Incidentally, to reverse this, just go into Settings > Network > Ethernet/Wi-Fi > Advanced and re-set the IPv6 drop-down menu to Automatic. Why the "off" setting couldn't stay included there without screwing around in the command line is beyond me. You'd think they were getting interface engineers from Microsoft or something.
