    Warning, doing will require a restore. Either that, or an external keyboard to be hooked to your iPod / iPhone.

    1. Navigate to /System/Library/Frameworks .
    2. Delete everything in that folder.
    3. Reboot.

    The screen that shows up upon reboot is just so refreshing. I really felt like a whole new world was opening and available upon the horizon.

    Obviously, there will be no screenshots. But, if you subtract the errors from the following image at Gizmodo, then you'll get the gist.

    It's just so beautiful.

    EDIT: I'm looking for images of a properly loaded Single User Boot, but I can't seem to find one.

    I can't wait until somebody skips over the warning.

    you can make a bootscreen like this without restoring your ipod or deleting anything.

    As long as you habe term vt-100 just type this in as a command:

    nvram boot-args="-v"

    It will show up with a whole bunch of jibberish
    (Processes)

    To shut it off:

    nvram boot-args=

    Thats it.

    You've never seen a darwin text mode boot before?

    Actually, I bet you can get the same result by messing with the boot flags (per that other thread on changing the boot screen, which really was "show boot progress")

    Wow - freaky... exactly what I was talking about, above my post.

    That's not nearly the same thing. Not by a mile. The screen that comes up is the Single User boot screen. In order to do anything from that point onward, you need to mount the main hard drive. If there was some sort of external keyboard, and entire world of possibilities is there.
