Emulation
This app works with: QEMU

BootXChanger lets you change the grey Apple logo boot image on Mac OS X 10.4 through 10.6.

To set an image as a new boot image, open BootXChanger and drag a 128x128 pixel image to the image well, then click Apply.

Based on a clever hack found by Dave Dribin to modify the Mac OS X boot loader to add custom graphics.

Compatibility
Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

Doesn't work on the early 2011 MacBook Pro.

BootXChanger 1.0.4 will not change the background color of the boot screen. You should use #BFBFBF as your image's background color unless you want a noticeable rectangle around your image.

If your image has more than 100 colors, it will be down-sampled and probably look ugly. If this happens, you can try saving the image in GIF or PNG-8, making sure it uses 100 colors or less.

Users on Intel Macs should consider using the Intel Mac exclusive BootXChanger 2.0 instead, which contains a number of enhancements and allows you to change the background color.
