Okay, I now have a version that returns the permissions to their original state. There are two caveats: 1. it is in fact considerably slower (22 vs 8 seconds on my Mac). 2. Since each and every icon needs to be modified using admin privileges (at least when changing the owner), it may trigger the dreaded glacial slowdowns that some people have observed in the 2.3.1 version. On all my Macs, this slowdown is not present and although the permissions fix slows down to 22 seconds for me, I cannot see the glacial speeds of 30 minutes or more that some people have experienced.

In other words, I need beta testers (preferably those people who had the very slow transfers). I have placed a version of SafarIcon at the following URL: h**p:// Please test theme installation with and without permission fix enabled (this is set in the Preferences) and let me know how it works.

The Japanese localization of SafarIcon indeed has a small bug that creates this error message. The error only appears with certain Themes that lack a specific icon (that's why I didn't catch the bug). I will release a bug fix version soon. In the meantime, just click the message away and keep using SafarIcon. The error message will not cause any problems when installing themes (it's just annoying).

Delete the SafarIcon.plist file in your Preferences folder to solve the "file not found" error. Alternatively, just re-set the path to Safari in the Preferences tab.

By mistake, I initially uploaded the wrong version of the SafarIcon archive. I caught it right after I downloaded the archive myself. I immediately corrected the mistake, but the very first few downloaders may have gotten the wrong version. There's nothing seriously wrong with it, except that it won't install the Aqua appearance. So if you were an early bird and want Aqua, please redownload the file (if you don't care about Aqua and always use the Metal appearance just keep the version you have).

A note about the greyed icons in practically all themes: It's not a bug, it's a feature. Those icons are from the default Safari theme and they are disabled (greyed out), because the particular theme does not contain the corresponding icon.

Noivad, yes you are missing something ;-) ChimeraKnight can revert to the last version. It's all explained in the Read Me. In short, after you've downloaded a nightly and it's crashing left and right, simply re-run CK. It will let you revert to the last version and offer to also restore your bookmarks and cookie files in case the latest nightly messed with them.

Hey Anonymous, thanks for the comments. You may want to check the Chimera site to see for yourself that as of Oct. 8, the nightlies are in fact compressed in bzip2 format and the file name has changed to Chimera.dmg.bz2. Brainless as I am, I released a version that handles this new format. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

I see no reason why you can't use this version of SafarIcon with Safari 1.0.3. So the icons will be changed. What will not work is the Aqua/Metal appearance change.
[Version 2.1.3]
