    Well here's the story:

    I was on another mac forum and was about to post my screenshot in the November, 2008 sticky when I got curious and downloaded a zip file another member provided.

    His file included a black menu bar where the directions follow as such:

    "1.) Go to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreUI.framework/Resources/ and make a back up of SArtFile.bin

    2.)Once backed up delete the file from the resources.

    3.)Move the modded SArtFile.bin into the resources folder.

    4.) Go to /System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/HIToolbox.framework/Versions/A/Resources/ and backup Extras2.rsrc

    5.) Move the Extras2.rsrc into the resources

    6.) Logout and Log in"

    Now I have a slight issue.... I tried the black menu bar, and it was very nice! But then I tried to revert back to the old files and I copied the first .BIN file back followed by the old .rsrc file and then logged out. I think it may have screwed something up severely.... I went to log on again and now my screen shows up blue with my mouse pointer showing up intermittently. It won't let me log on. I rebooted it and it was perfectly fine up until the point where it was trying to go into the UI. I get the spinning dashes and that's about it. I think I may have severely effed my MacBook Pro.

    Oh and specs are as follows:

    Core 2 duo 2.33
    Leopard 10.5.5

    Any help is appreciated guys. Thanks

    I'm currently on my Windows partition. Thank God it works!

    this is a video i took of the boot process. i sat there for a few minutes and it does nothing other than this. in the video i say "this is the issue, it won't boot. I sit here and just get the dashes moving in a circle forever."
