Change Apple Logo on your Mac in Lion

On Mac OS X Lion, you can change the Apple logo to your own logo.  Let's do that now.  Here's a BB logo we want to use:

Grab the file and copy it to your system (let's say /Users/YOUR_USER_NAME/Downloads/BBRocks_256x256.png).

Then open Terminal and type the following to backup the original file:

sudo cp /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/LoginUIKit.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LoginUICore.framework/Versions/A/Resources/appleLinen.png ~/Desktop/

And then this to copy over the Apple logo with your new logo:

sudo cp /Users/YOUR_USER_NAME/Downloads/BBRocks_256x256.png /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/LoginUIKit.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LoginUICore.framework/Versions/A/Resources/appleLinen.png

Since you are running sudo, you will have to enter your password.  This is due to the fact you are copying over the original file which is owned by root.

Now your login window should look like something like this:
