    hey everybody,

    I have a Macbook Pro 15" 2012 model (the last one without retina ) and I really dig the black screen + white apple boot screen. now it's just grey. I saw a tutorial on Yosemite on how to do it yourself but I want to make sure if it's possible on El Capitan as well?

    thanks!

    Thanks for your reply! It was very easy Only I still get the grey screen. am I missing something? the file is in the right place and terminal accepts the commands..

    you can try to apply the correct permissions in terminal:

    Code:
    sudo chown root /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.dabrain13.darkboot.plist 
    and then load it:

    Code:
    sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.dabrain13.darkboot.plist 
    Then restart :rolleyes:

    I now saw that the command said : path had bad ownership/permissions.

    The manual indeed does not mention that the launch daemon must be owned by root in order to work. @dabrain13 should probably point that out. :)
