Hey there everyone, Here is my take on the Black OSX theme. Im trying my best to port the previous one and making it much better but Im still having problems with some stuff. Here is the release and ill keep updating as new features get solved. You guys can help also =]

Here It Is :D!

Black Menu Bar & Extras [BackUps Are Included]

**Please note that retro apple & ileopard scrollbars are already implemented in the sArtfile =]**


Put SArtFile.bin in:

Put Extras2.rsrc in:

put Modded Icons in:
/System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras

Remember to Back up! [Ive Included BackUps Just In Case ;]

Restart all your apps, (Including finder) or log out and back in to see changes.

Hi ~FURBY8704,

great looking mod. Have you had any feedback from 10.6.5 users? I've tried another Black OSX mod from another user on Deviantart and it didn't seem to work that good, went back and saw that he said 'not for 10.6.5' Do you know if your version is compatible with 10.6.5?

Have a good one dude
