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.
