How to Edit the About This Mac Info on Lion! (10.7+)



This is how to edit the info shown on the about this mac window, and even the more info button aswell! This is a how-to on OS X Lion, I couldn’t find another one on Lion, so I did some research and some guessing and I found out how ;).

  1. Hi,
    I found your  great movie but I have Yosemite 10.10.2, and it didn't work for me, and now I wonder if you have a idea how to do the same with Yosemite 10.10.2. Long time ago, right.
    Please help.

  2. First. THANKS THIS WAS A GREAT VIDEO.
    I wanted to ask you if you ever messed around with the memory slots settings to make it look like you have more or less. Like making it show up as 8 GB OR 2 GB RATHER THEN 4 or whatever the computer has.
    IT WOULD BE AWESOME IF YOU CAN POST ANOTHER TUTORIAL SHOWING HOW TO DO THAT. I DNT WANT TO MESS UP ANYTHING SO PLAYING AROUND WITH IT FOR ME IS NOT AN OPTION AS I AM A NOVICE.
    THANKS YOU

  3. Thank you my good sir!!!!!! i just installed quad-core xeon’s and it wouldnt register on my macpro, i have been looking up and down on the web and thanks to this video it was the only one that worked!

  4. What about the memory tab? … I want to customize the image rather than it saying "4GB installed" with a blue image I want it to be green to match my theme. 

  5. Are you using Mountain Lion or lion? I've done this on both and I found that in Mountain lion SPInfo is just blue and black and looks more jumbled together. But the process is still the same.

  6. Someone did this to me! The "About this Mac" said Mid 2012 and all the best processors and memory…well, it wouldnt boot up so took it to the Apple Store and they said its a 2009 with half the memory he stated…etc.. PLEASE don't do this to sell to anyone else.. Think about if someone did it to you…

  7. thx but my macbook pro didn't show the model (MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010)) below the text "MacBook Pro" in About this mac…
    How can I solve this problem? Or how to edit it? I saw the string MAC_MODEL = "%@ model"; but it didn't change anything despite what I edit
