Replace the gray Apple logo with something else of your choice. You can even make an imitation of the Happy Mac icon in place of the Apple Logo!

Requires Mac OS X 10.2

Product Description:
In Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar, the familiar happy mac image was replaced with a grey apple on a grey background. This program allows you to replace the boot image with an icon or image of your choice. You can also modify the background of the boot image.

Ha ha haaa!
Nice. I think I may change mine to a Sad Mac. :D

Too bad we can't change the startup sound too, I miss the Hawaiian Death Chimes. :p

Mine is a little picture of myself (not the one in my avatar, but it is kinda like it :D) and my mom always comments on how it looks like I have been 'sucked into the computer' whenever she turns it on. :D

i've got Start-up Syringe, which does the same thing, but i'll have a look at this, might be easier.

just another thing i was wondering, is there a max amount of colours you can use with MacBoot? anyone know?

Hello! Newbie to this forum, first post.

I'm on a WallStreet with 10.2.8 and have not had any luck with this hack. (same tweak worked fine on a G4 tower when I did it 6 months ago. That was under 10.2.6 or earlier of course) Tried MacBoot, the Syringe AppleScript, and the original Ryan Schmidt instructions with HexEdit to no avail. I still get the plain ugly grey Apple silhouette.

Anyone been through this and found a work-around?

Is it bad form to resurrect old threads? Should I have started a new one with a link to the old instead?
