    I'm interested in hacking the themes and icons on my mac. It would be cook to change the boot screemnor the log off screen, system icons and things like that. I've googled around and i didn't really come across anything and i thought it might be better to macrumor member opinions on the apps that they've used. I've already downloaded icons and themes, i just don't know how to apply them.

    They make spending hours and hours on your computer less monotonous and your desktop can be a form of personal expression. I'd go craZY if I was still looking at OS X aqua icons - been what, like five years?:eek:

    I use Candybar and ShapeShifter too.

    I refuse to touch Candybar after it corrupted my OSX Partition, forcing a format and reinstall on the volume. <_<;

    I hope they've made it less potentially screwable since then.

    Put another check in the "use shapeshifter" column.

    Unsanity has an early Beta out for Shapeshifter that is UB. Shapeshifter2.4b4.dmg

    Keeping in mind that it IS a beta.

    I'm using candy bar both at work (imac) and at home (macbook pro c2d) and I have not had any problems with it. it's pretty easy to use and it's sort become an addiction for me coz I'm constantly playing with new icons.

    I recommended it! :)

    I love candybar. I have never had any problems with it. I use it with pixidex to keep up with all of my icons.

    I just use UNO. Doesn't do much, but it does it well.
