    find an icon you like
    do a cmd + i on it to get to the info screen
    select the icon picture on the top left corner
    copy it

    go to your porn folder
    do a cmd + i on it to get the info screen
    select the icon picture on the top left corner
    paste the icon in

    done

    not working for some reason...

    here is what I'm working with:

    the one on the right is the icon i created, the one on the left is the folder i want the icon changed. i did the copy/paste deal, but now it looks like that.

    ok - what u wanna do is on the very top left of the info tab, u'll see the "icon" thing, u wanna click that so that it has a little blue shadow around it, then copy the picture u want (open it in preview and copy it, dont copy the whole file) - then go back to the info tab, click on the blue shadowed thing, and hit "apple + v" to paste it. that should work.
