    Just customised mine after reading this how-to that was posted in another thread somewhere.

    Mine is a simple change, didn't go OTT with it, but I think it looks cool. So let's see any you've done, or the results of what you do after reading this :D

    (Leave in PDF format, makes it easy for others to use your file if they wanted to ;))

    jsw just did, albeit with a suboptimal picture of Keira, IMO.

    The current 'tar would make a nice one!

    OK, well, this wasn't intended to be another Keira associated thread...but if you're gonna do it guys, at least do a good job of it :p

    I still wanna see what any of you come up with on a serious level, get your thinking caps on!

    Download PDF (too big to attach :eek: ) I've tried it, and it actually looks pretty slick :)

    Nice. See, I didn't want to do the work involved in making a good Keira one, just wanted to goad you into doing it. I see my plan has succeeded. :D

    It's done differently. It's a tif and it goes in here: /System/Library/CoreServices/SecurityAgent/Contents/Resources

    (Had to zip it to attach).

    This guide tells you how to do it. It looks a lot more complex though - I can just imagine myself ringing Apple Tech Support and explaining how I locked myself out of the computer :D.

    It's easy to do the bit I did though, just replacing the Apple logo (attached above) ;)
