Modding ML...

for those who do this sort of thing, and know enough to be cautious:

http://www.loginox.branox.com - to change the login screen

http://macupdate.com/app/mac/44252/ncbackgrounder - change the notification center background

http://www.maxthemes.com - black menubar (read first, you'll need a white clock, etc)

http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/44248/mountain-tweaks - kill the leather in calendar, and a bunch of other good stuff

http://gpopper.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d46hook - a much better-looking iTunes

read instructions! and backup the originals of anything first (if need be). but all these things are working well on my macbook pro.
any other stuff, post here! and if anyone knows how to hack the dock...(i used to remove the scurve files, and had a transparent dock)...

I had the dark top menu bar in Lion - however, when ever I switched from an App to another or to a different screen, it would flicker white first.

Does it still do this?

tander, have never seen a flicker (not in lion, not now), so...not sure what you were experiencing.

I had the flickering but it was with an app called MenuBarFilter (it has a panda bear as an icon). Was a great little app that worked perfectly for tweaking the menubar, no worry about any menubar icons not being white, did all the work. As an ADC member, I used it with 10.8 DP's and it always caused flickering with certain app's so I stopped using it.

As for the dock, I always modded it by replacing the scurve*png's with glossy black images. It allowed me to determine the open app's much quicker. I never understood why Apple engineers chose to use light colored orb indicators on a silver dock. Now that the dock.app has been modded, I don't know what files need to be replaced. Interesting to note that the file names mirror iOS file names (ex @2x.png, etc). The dock seems to consist of many smaller images, making it more arduous to modify.

A MacRumors member was able to get a black 10.8 dock. However, it negated the ability to uncheck "Group windows by application" in "Mission Control", and having an "All Windows" "Exposé" option in 10.8 was too important to live without.

I wrote "Panic", the makers of "CandyBar", about a 10.8 update. Their response was less than enthusiastic.

candybar now works with 10.8, although the only dock option is the 2D; i used mirage to make an 'invisible' dock (not as cool as what i used to do, also removing the scurve files...a clear, reflective dock). but for now...

Wow! You're right, an update for CandyBar was just released. Based on their reply I thought they were dropping support. Definitely beats changing all the files manually and/or changing the systemversion plist to 10.7. Thanks!
