Hi bros! I personally find Boom 2 a great equaliser, that has helped my computer achieve full sound potential, and it also helped my low volume microphone problem.

My only complaint, which is a very little one, is that the icon is very ugly.
I have successfully changed the AppIcon, just like with any other app, but Boom2 seems to have different twist  to it than most of the apps. It seems like it stores the menubar icons that it uses in a different location than most apps do.
Normally these are revealed by right clicking the app, click Show Package Contents, then you go to /ApplicationName.app/Contents/Resources
There you can normally find active.png, inactive.png, highlight active.png and highlighted.png, which are the files the given application uses to be displayed in the Mac OSX Menu Bar.
Boom2 doesn’t work like this, and I can’t find the menubar icons that it uses, so I could replace them with better looking ones.
Where should I be looking?
I am open to trying any suggestion given!
Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I think I found something interesting, but I am not able to open this kind of file. I am searching and I think to open these files the only way it's some Xcode procedure... I am not experienced at all on that.

These are the files


nib files.zip



I am not sure if the MenuBar Icon is there, but those seem to me the most probable files to contain it.

I will also be attaching the whole Resources folder of Boom2




I don't care what icon you change it to, can be a black circle, or whatever, but the nicest would be the InsanelyMac logo :D


Pleaaaase put the Insanely Mac logo in black without any letters hahahah I would love that

then I suspect that the file you're searching (icns, png...) is in Asset.car file (Boom 2 -> Contents -> Resources).


google = how to extract .car file

My friend you were right! Now i am off to editing. Hopefully will release the modified version soon, with the insanely mac logo :D

With a little bit of will and little bit of Ps skill , you get results :D I ended up putting a little star in the menubar, looks pretty damn great. 






I made it also work with El Capitan Dark Mode




Thanks for the pro tip about the Assets.car file!   :thumbsup_anim:


If anybody wants to learn how to do it or want my modified Assets car file I am available!   :jester:

      Hi everyone,
      I'm using the latest ACPIBatteryManager on 10.13.2 from Rehabman. I built from latest source with latest SDK to fix the issue that battery not appearing on startup.
      The problem is the battery menubar not updating until I refresh it myself by toggling show/hide battery percentage. I tried build the Debug scheme with Logging. The kext still polling status every 30s but the battery menubar icon does not respond. Any Solution?
      Thanks all!DSDT.aml.zip

      So, being a reader of this forum since 2012 I have never noticed any major changes or improvements in the forum appearance or functionality.
      For me the browsing and general order and organisation of the forum is amazing.
      I love it. I just think maybe it would be time for a little change in the general looks?

      At this point of time, InsanelyMac for me feels like it is made out of some cheap "Clearlooks" GTK2 theme. For a website as gracious and important and innovative like this one, the visual style seems a little outdated.
      I think I speak for every user of this forum when I say I would appreciate some innovative website modifications, if it's not too bold to ask.
      I end this message with my best wishes and regards for all the people that make this website possible, and that keep it alive.

      Hola a todos, aunque he leido y aprendido mucho gracias a vosotros, este es mi primer post aquí así que os haré una pequeña presentación. 
      Siempre he sido usuario de Windows, aunque también he probado algunas distribuciones de Linux. Hace unos días me decidí a instalar OS X (Yosemite) en mi portátil para probar la experiencia. Me costo muchísimo hacerlo funcionar, desde la creación del USB (que tuve que hacer probando 2 máquinas virtuales ya que no dispongo de Mac) hasta el arranque, la instalación y configuración. A día de hoy lo tengo perfectamente operativo y casi al 100% salvo por 2 problemas, uno mayor y otro menor. 
      1- El mayor problema es que no tengo acceso a mi ID de Apple y por lo tanto no puedo acceder a la cuenta me.com/icloud.com, tampoco descargar aplicaciones del Store ni usar 100% iTunes con mi iPhone (el 6 de 64Gb) ya que en todos los casos me pide el login con mi ID. En la máquina virtual me funciona perfecto. 
      Por lo que he estado leyendo el problema reside en que no he conseguido hacer que Yosemite detecte mi tarjeta ethernet y actualmente estoy funcionando con un USB Wifi (Dlink go N-150) y al parecer es necesaria una conexión ethernet ubicada en "en0"... cosa que yo no tengo.
      He probado varias soluciones que se comentan por la red y ninguna me ha funcionado, ahora estoy "peleándome" con el NullEthernet kext de RehabMan (https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Null-Ethernet) que instala un driver fake que simula precisamente eso, una conexión ethernet en "en0"... pero no tengo claro como hacerlo funcionar. Si alguien lo conoce, lo ha probado y le ha funcionado, le agradecería enormemente me echara una mano. 
      2- Me gustaría que me apareciera el icono del wifi en la barra superior (las barras en abanico o icono de Airport), con el Dlink go N150 que uso ahora me ha desaparecido. He probado con otro (Dlink DWA 140) y si conseguí hacerlo funcionar y que apareciera el icono del wifi arriba mediante una aplicación Ralink... pero con este N150 no funciona. ¿Hay algo parecido para este dispositivo? ¿alguna alternativa válida?.
      El segundo problema es sobre todo estético ya que el wifi funciona perfecto pero el primero... es muy importante para mi ya que este será mi ordenador principal, lo llevaré a todas partes y necesito el acceso a los servicios Apple en mi día a día.
      Por favor, si alguien puede ayudarme le estaría muy agradecido.
      Muchas gracias a todos
