It's real nice to get rid of that drab gray apple upon bootup. I never could understand why Apple, a vibrant technological company, would "dumb down" its premier icon to dull gray.Well that phase of Apple's growth is done with on my Macs :D What about a change to get rid of Microsoft's gray flag? That change would be equally - if not more - welcome on my system.
I can't understand neither why Apple has become fond of grey icons: in Mountain Lion, you always have to stare at your sidebar to guess where you are (which disk, which folder)... :-(The worst thing of this stupid aesthetic choice is that, even if everybody at Apple have discovered it's counter-productive, they probably will never come back to a clear interface because it would be like saying "We've been wrong", which is an attitude Apple is quite incapable of. ;-)
works with lion on 27" imac and 17" mbp, both 2010 ...means, was installed on 10.6.8 and after updating to lion from the 2nd boot on "visible"
NOT working on 2011 mac mini i7 2.7ghz
Worked on a 2011 MacBook Pro (with ThunderBolt) after installing EFI 2.1 update
correction.. it did work when the machine rebooted immediately after the update, but not since. Some part of the boot method must have varied, such that it used the different image resource. Its back to the default now... so...
I have the same machine and problem. It works if I zap the PRAM (CMD OPT P R), but only once. The next reboot it goes back to the Grey Apple - but with my chosen background colour everywhere except the Apple matrix itself.My son's 2010 15" MBP has no such problem.Do you have any new leads on the problem?CheersPSmy com.apple.boot.plist (\Library\Preferences\SystemConfiguration\com.apple.boot.plist) is as follows: Background Color 4194304 Boot Logo \System\Library\CoreServices\BootLogo.png Kernel Flags
Try the plist again...""""""""" Background Color"" 4194304"" Boot Logo"" \System\Library\CoreServices\BootLogo.png"" Kernel Flags"" """""
It does not work on my new Macbook Air 13'' (late 2010)!
It does not work for me. I am trying to change the gray apple logo to he colored apple from the sample images and it doesn't work. I drag the image into bootxchanger, click apply, and enter my password.Once i restart nothing has changed. Any solutions? I've already tried reinstalling it with no luck.Thanks.
Very fun,Very nice! BootXChanger is the perfect companion with Loginox. It's fun to startup my MBP again!
Does exactly what it says on the tin. I no longer have to put up with a boring grey apple logo on startup.
This is the best pgm since the invention of "canned-beer"!!!
Oh come on you can't throw us G5 owners a bone, and do one more PPC release so we can change the background color like or Intel brethren?
Works great. The only problem I had was with the documentation stating that the background color should be #BFBFBF. After some trial and error, I ended up with #CACACA. That may spell CACA, but it works for me.
