Blackberry Bold Icon for Mac OSX

This little tip is for those souls out there adventurous enough to use the Blackberry Bold / Mac OS X combo. If you that use a Blackberry on Max OS X with “Disk mode” or “Mass storage” enabled, you are able to read and write files to your Blackberry’s SD card from your desktop or the finder. However, the drive icon that shows up in the finder when your mobile device is plugged into the Mac is the boring generic drive icon. This is all well and good, but here’s a little tip that shows you how to modify the generic drive icon for your Blackberry to a more suitable one.

First off, I hear some people ask why bother changing the icon? Well, here are a couple of reasons that prompted me to do so:

  1. There has been a rare occasion where I may have mistook the generic drive icon used when my Bold was plugged in for another one of my drives and accidentally deleted or moved files to this folder.
  2. Having a specific icon for your phone when its plugged into your mac also shows you whether the device has been mounted or not with one quick glance and without reading the names for each of your mounted drives – this is useful if you tend to have lots of drives that you work with.
  3. It just looks so much better!

Here’s a little tip to allow you to customize the icon such that it displays a more appropriate icon.

How to customize the Blackberry Bold 9000 icon for Mac OS X:

  1. Plug your Blackberry Bold 9000 into your Mac’s USB port and enable “Mass Storage” or “Disk Mode” – it should now show up on your desktop and in the finder.
  2. Download Blackberry Bold Icon for Mac OS X (3412) and extract the archive on your SD Card of your Bold (the icon itself is invisible so unless you may not see it in the finder).
  3. Done! You may need to Eject the drive and re-insert it back into your Mac to see the new icon in effect.

Alternate Method:

If the above fails to work for you, here’s another way of achieving the same result.

Step 1: Get the Icon file: Blackberry Bold Icon for Mac OS X (original) (2592)

Step 2: Copy the icon to the clipboard

  1. Click on this file from the Finder
  2. Choose ‘Get Info’ from the ‘File’ menu.
  3. In the info window that pops up, click on the icon
  4. Choose ‘Copy’ from the ‘Edit’ menu.
  5. Close the info window

Step 3: Paste the icon to the desired item

  1. Go to the item in the Finder that you want a custom icon
  2. Click the item (file, folder, disk, etc)
  3. Choose ‘Get Info’ from the ‘File’ menu.
  4. In the info window that pops up, click on the icon
  5. Choose ‘Paste’ from the ‘Edit’ menu.
  6. Close the info window
