How to replace Finder

Find Finder.app on the OSBoot partition. Its in System/Library/CoreServices.

cd /Volumes/OSBoot/System/Library/CoreServices

Rename Finder.app to Finder.app.sav. Copy in your replacement app and rename it to Finder.app.

mv Finder.app Finder.app.sav
cp /<some-path>/CenteraStage.app Finder.app

Now, navigate into its Contents/MacOS folder and copy its bin to Finder.

cd Contents/MacOS
