Recent models of Mac boot up with a black boot screen and white Apple logo, instead of the old gray and dark gray boot screen. DarkBoot enables older Mac systems to get the black boot screen as well. For newer Macs, the app can also change the boot screen back to the traditional gray color.

  1. Download latest release of DarkBoot.
  2. Unzip and run the DarkBoot app.
  3. Select the desired color, then click OK.
    You will be prompted for the admin password. Enter it and press OK.
  4. Reboot twice for changes to take effect.

Known to work with OSX 10.10 and 10.11 DP.
