How to Change the Default Login Background

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

For anyone who uses a modified distro of OS X (iATKOS, iDeneb, iPC, etc.) this is a guide to change the default wallpaper that you see when you are logging in which usually says the name of your distro.


NOTE: This has only been tested on iDeneb v1.3 Leopard 10.5.5. I'm pretty sure it would work everywhere, but I can't be certain.



Here's the guide:


Step 1: Pick out the picture you would like to use and download it. I used the Andromeda Galaxy Lion wallpaper.


Step 2: Copy the picture.


Step 3: Log in to root.


Step 4: Paste the picture in /System/Library/CoreServices


Step 4: Look around for a file called DefaultDesktop.jpg


Step 5: Move it to the trash.


Step 7: Rename the picture that you picked out to DefaultDesktop.jpg


Step 8: Log out of root and enjoy!


Hope this worked for you!

This is my first tutorial so reply with any questions or just tell me if it worked.
