Thanks for creating this guide.

However, anyone know how to mod the info in Sierra?

I can change the system logo, the model and year. But unable to locate and change the CPU, memory, graphic info. Million thanks in advance!

Hi, I am curious about how to change the system name and year in Sierra? Could you point me in the right direction?

What field do I edit if I want to mod my processor on an ACTUAL Macbook? When doing it on unknown it works for Hackintosh computers, but for instance I have a 2008 unibody on El Capitan and I'd like to change the processor to say something catchy to make light of the fact it's a core 2 machine. Since it is an actual Macbook, using unknown processor doesn't work.

How can I edit the built in display image on my laptop? I tried replacing com.apple.macbookpro13-unibody.icns in /S/L/Coreservices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources with no luck.

My SMBIOS is MacBookPro8,1 so it should work. IDK what I'm doing wrong. I just want to customize the built in display, nothing else.

Cheers!

I FINALLY figured out how to edit our graphics on Sierra, the file is in

/Applications/Utilities/System Information.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/SPInfo.strings

Look for this:

<key>DISP_GFX_MAIN</key>
<string>%@ %@ </string>

Delete %@ %@ and replace with any name for example if you want it to show Iris graphics it would like like this:

<key>DISP_GFX_MAIN</key>
<string>Intel Iris 1536 MB</string>

Save the file. Also of note in order to save the file in Sierra you must boot into Recovery and disable SIP. to do this while booting up hold command + R. once in recovery open up terminal and type csrutil disable and restart.

Can still be done in High Sierra. Replacing the public.generic-lcd.icns in coretypes does not work though, but adding a file with the name shown in ATM does works.

Could you write the name of the file you put in. Mine is showing (it's in french) : "Moniteur : PBM-V300W" and I put PBM-V300W.icns but nothing changed.
