So, I got this working and finally can display my T420 properly in About This Mac, but the problem is every time I create a new user, it gets reset and I have to redo it all over again for the new user. I guess that makes sense since some of the files reside in the user's own Library folder, but is there a way to make a startup script or template for new users that copies over these files so that I would only have to set this up once?

Can still be done in High Sierra. Replacing the public.generic-lcd.icns in coretypes does not work though, but adding a file with the name shown in ATM does works.

Just for others info. I can still modify the public.generic-lcd.icns in the latest 10.13.3. And the about my Mac can shows the modified picture correctly.

Hi all

trying to change data in About This Mac (on Mojave 10.14.3) but facing following issue:
com.apple.SystemProfiler.plist just goes back to its original state or completely disappears from Preferences after restart
so no changes to About this Mac happens
Did any face the same issue and what can be a solution?
thx

Did you COPY (not move) the file to the desktop before you mod it? (And then copy and replace the "original")

I can still mod that string as long as I first copy (again, not move) the file to my desktop.
