iOSX7 Full Theme for Mavericks (BETA) by nateblunt iOSX7 Full Theme for Mavericks (BETA) by nateblunt

**(NOTICE July 29, 2014) - Do not install this if you're just going to uninstall it 5 mins later. That's really stupid. The uninstaller no longer works for certain elements. You will need to restore from your backup or reinstall OS X.

*(UPDATE May 4th)
 - Added Dock indicators, QuickLook, iBooks additions, Bezel glyphs, and several other system tweaks.

iOSX7 Full Theme for Mavericks
Inspired by iOS7, made for OSX.

Please read instructions carefully before proceeding. This is for experienced themers only. If you are not comfortable backing up and restoring system files or if any of these terms are unfamiliar you should stop and do some research first. You may seriously regret it if you don’t.

This a very extensive system wide modification. However, it is still a work in progress. Not everything is finished. I decided to release the BETA version just to get it out to the public. There are only a few months before Apple releases the new 10.10 OS making this obsolete (although rumors indicate it won't be a full iOS7-style redesign, no surprise). So enjoy while you can! Any feedback is very much appreciated.


1. Download and install my iOSX7 Theme from the store for free. Logout after applying the theme. You must have this installed for the them to work.

2. Double click the “iOSX7_Theme_for_Mavericks_by_n8cousins.pkg” and follow the directions in the installer. It is highly recommended you backup your computer first.

Additional tools/tweaks used to complete the theme:

Messages - In>Preferences set "My background color" to rgb:0,122,255. Set "My font color" to White. Set the fonts to HelveticaNeue (or any of it's variants).

Dock - Install by W0lfschild… Select “Install Custom Bundle” from the drop down menu and choose iOSX7Dock_for_cDock.bundle from the unzipped folder.
*cDock was recently updated to version 4, which doesn't work with the provided bundle. If you can find a cDock v.3 download the bundle will work. Hopefully there will be an update in the future.

Sidebar - Install by alexzielenski Set all the Selection Colors to rgb:0,122,255. Set the Source List Background to rgb:236,236,236. Set both Window Title Colors to rgb:0,122,255.

Menubar - Go to SysPrefs>Desktop and Uncheck “Translucent Menubar.” Install by Lauri Taimila… Remember to hide the default clock in System Prefs. Add to LogIn Items in SysPrefs to launch automatically on startup. *TO HIDE THE SHADOW: Download from… OR follow the instruction #7 from ObsidianMenubar to hide it using Photoshop (template included)

No Shadows - ShadowKiller… Add to LogIn Items in SysPrefs>Users&Groups to launch automatically on startup.

Screensaver - ios7 screensaver by bodysoulspirit…

Login - Im not sure how the background will look on other devices (it was made for a 17” MBP) so I included the PSD file incase it doesn’t line up with the text fields and profile image (or if you want to use a different blurred wallpaper). It might take a few tries to get it right. Make sure you replace all 4 “apple” images in: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/LoginUIKit.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LoginUICore.framework/Versions/A/Resources.

*If you are updating from a previous version of iOSX7 Theme: Run the installer. No need to reinstall Flavours. Restart when finished.

*TO UNINSTALL: Run the installer. When you get to the selection window check the box next to “Uninstall” and uncheck every other box. Logout when finished. Disable Flavours and Logout. You may need to manually restore apps like Safari, Mail, and PreferencePanes from your backup. If you didn’t backup you will need to download and reinstall the apps and/or manually replace the files from OSX installer.

*This is not made for Retina devices but it will work, it just wont be as complete as it is on non-Retina devices.

*If you are using my iOSX7 iTunes Theme make sure you hard exclude iTunes in Flavours preferences.

If you like this theme check out my other iOSX7 packs:

I wish I hadn't installed Yosemite so I could use this, but either way, I like the look!

Not sure how to help. Try restoring from your backup or reinstalling OS X.

i install this theme and now I want to restore it. When I uninstall none of the features are gone except for the login page. Could you please help? I desperately need to restore this. I have no backup. I find it strange that you don't reply to people that ask about uninstalling so maybe you have the permenant and as a virus. Please help.

Yes, you now have a virus. It was all part of my master plan. You got me.

The uninstaller seemed to only work on one versions of Mavericks, 10.9.2or3 I forget which. You'll need to reinstall OS X.

Ive uninstalled it and disabled Flavours but my Finder is still themed.
chriscrk Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014
Is there any way you can install only the Safari theme? I'm only interested in changing that theme for now. Any chance that could be done? I'd really appreciate it! :)
nateblunt Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Yes, when you run the installer uncheck every box except Safari. You'll still need Flavours tho.

Is there anyway to do this without flavours? Cause the app doesn't like me when installing the helper tool lol
