I'm having the same problem with SourceTree 2.4 running on Macintosh 10.12.3. I finally just opened the Application with Show Package Contents and replaced the default icon to octocat (since I mostly use GitHub remote repos). The default icon can be found at Contents/Resources/defaultrepoicon.png Sorry, I know this doesn't help much if you want to individually change repo icons.
I didn't know you could have icons for repositories in SourceTree! This will be so helpful! Unfortunately I couldn't get the results I expected. Did I misunderstand the intention? I'm trying to have icons as shown in this mockup image:
I am using a MacOS and this way worked for me:
1- Put your image file in root folder of your project.
2- Your icon needs to have this name icon.ico
3- Close your SourceTree
4- Use the command line
sudo rm -v ~/Library/Application\ Support/SourceTree/ImageCache/*
Command recommended by @Ettienne Louw thanks to you =)
5- Open your SourceTree and wait a little seconds your icon must to be appears in your project
6- If the icon do not appear just refresh the avatar and wait a little
I hope this way works for you too
