Modify the Jaguar boot image System
This is more of a passing along of information than a hint in and of itself, but check out the Jaguar boot image modification instructions put together by Ryan Schmidt. He hacked the BootX file, and can teach others to do the same. If you grow weary of the grey apple boot screen, therein lie your answers.

[Editor's note: I added a link to Ryan's site to the links section as well. This process is not for the faint of heart, so read the instructions carefully before you start!]

What about the NSProgressIndicator underneath
Authored by: Anonymous on Sep 01, '02 02:38:30PM

Does anyone know how the NSProgressIndicator underneath is created? The screen is displayed before any of the Cocoa frameworks are loaded, so I assume the code for NSProgressIndiacator is buried in the BootX file as well?

Hardly. That progress indicator is hard wired somewhere.

Is there more than one type of X.2 bott screen?

http://www.pcpro.co.uk/features/features_story.php?id=31382

this story if a UK coverage of X.2

There's a picture of a boot screen that's NOT the new grey apple, but of a "jagged" version of the 'happy mac' that say s"hello" underneath it.

on my TiG4, w/ X.2 I have the grey apple "thingy" ....

I "WANT" this "other" Happy-Mac saying 'hello' to me upon booting.
