iTunes 10 sports a significant color scheme shift–the once colorful icons in the left-hand toolbar are now what some users describe as a dull gray. The author of drien.com has developed a hack that returns the colorful icons from iTunes 9.2 to the iTunes 10 interface.
Installing the patch requires the following process:
- Quit iTunes 10
- Download this package
- Go to the Applications folder and control-click or right-click iTunes and select “Show Package Contents”
- Navigate to /Contents/Resources/ and copy the file iTunes.rsrc to a safe location.
- Copy the iTunes.rsrc file from the package you downloaded and paste it into the same /Contents/Resources/ folder, replacing the old file.
If anything goes wrong, you can replace the old iTunes.rsrc file or download and reinstall iTunes 10.
