    I like James' article about putting up cool icons for your new Treo in iSync, and plan to execute faithfully his instructions as soon as I upgrade from my 180. But what about now? Are there icons available for my Treo 180?

    Thanks imageone, great icons. I've not followed through on Jame's iSync trick, though, because I cannot find the current icone that iSync uses (a Tungsten, I think). James says it is in the backup folder, but I see nothing. No .tiffs anywhere. Can I do this without the last bit of code where it says what to replace?

    I'm having the same problem too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I followed the instructions exacty, and it did not work.
    I looked for the tungsten icon it currently uses and could not find it either.
    Not sure what I did wrong, or why it did not work.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Did anyone get this to work? I tried multiple times and nothing happened.

    The backup folder isn't there. One of the commands creates a backup of all your .tiff files in the Resources folder of iSync's Palm Conduit. You have to download the new Treo file to your desktop before running the commands in order for them to work. Replace Treo.tiff with tungsten.tiff in the command only if your current iSync icon looks like a Tungsten.

    Replacing Treo.tiff with Tungsten.tiff worked for me. I didn't realize it was a Tungsten icon. Thanks for the help.

    Got it!!
    I forgot to change the 650 to 600 in the command.
    Worked great this time.

    It's very important that you first save the new picture to your desktop and run the commands from the article exactly as they are shown in Terminal:

    Code:
    cd /System/Library/SyncServices/PalmBladeConduit.bundle/Contents/Resources 
    sudo mkdir Backups 
    sudo cp *.tiff Backups 
    sudo cp ~/Desktop/treo650-isyncicon.tiff ./Treo.tiff
    If your old icon was a Tungsten, replace the part in red with the word tungsten.

    If you're afraid of using the terminal, you can make the change just as easily in the Finder. Just navigate to the /System/Library/SyncServices folder, find the PalmBladeConduit.bundle file, ctl+click on it and choose "Show Package Contents" from the contextual menu. A new window will appear with some folders and other stuff. Go into the Contents/Resources folder, and you'll find the Tiffs you're looking for. Replace either the tungsten or treo one with the icon of your choice, and relaunch iSync.

    Backing up the original files first is always a good idea, of course.

    And no, this doesn't work in Tiger. They moved the icons to somewhere else. Haven't found them yet.

    tungsten
    tungsten.tiff

    treo.tiff

    I don't think Spotlight searches within packages. That's why those files won't turn up.

    Okay. Found it. The file is in the iSync application package itself. Just go to Applications/iSync, ctl+Click, choose "Show Package Contents". Then navigate to Contents/Resources, and find the tungsten.tiff file. Replace it, and you should be good to go.

    At least, in theory.

    No luck for me Maybe we can get James Hromadka to chime in (the original iSync Cutomizing article author)...

    Yeah. I tried it, too. No dice. There's got to be another location where that tiff file resides. I just can't find it anywhere.

    We need a search engine that can search within packages.
