    I am trying to get an iOS 6-ish boot look on my iBook's Leopard installation. I used BootXChanger to change the logo to the silver apple like on iOS, but realized that only v.2.0 of the app will change the background color to black, and it's not compatible with PPC. The last version that works with PPC won't change the background color, just the logo. Is there any other way to change the background color? Thanks!

    Nope, OpenFirmware and the BootX file just aren't able to do that. Just like they are limited in the amount of colours they can display in the logo. I think it's only 256 colours.

    This might not help, but it's worth a shot.

    I have a program on my iMac called OnyX. I don't know if it is restricted to Intels, but I was able to customize the login screen and boot logo pretty easily with it. You should check it out.
