You need to change it in Chrome.exe in C:\Program Files (x86) with a resource hacker, but the next time chrome updates you will need to do it again.

So I'm looking in the Chrome.exe right now and there are icons of different sizes. Do I have to change all of them to a white one of matching size or can I just change one of them?
