Well, I'm not sure what problems you might be having blessing a system
folder: if you've successfully un-blessed any existing system folder (by
moving the Finder into some subfolder, for instance) just opening the
intended new system folder should take care of the blessing.
I don't know what means you have at your disposal "from outside the
MacOS" but the Blessed Folder is recorded by a DirectoryID stored in the
first longword of the volume's Finder Info, which is 92 (decimal, 5C hex)
bytes into the volume's master directory block (block 2, third 512-byte
block on the disk). You could always write the DirectoryID of your
favorite folder there...
Hope that helps,
