Hi everyone,

I know that almost everyone is already downloading or already has installed the new OS X Yosemite, but for the unlucky ones like me :p and sticking with my old trusty but still very capable early 2008 white MacBook I can't even update to Mountain Lion, it's alright though I love my Mac and works perfectly fine don't really need to buy a new one. I do love all the new stuff from the latest and greatest OS but just to give my old Mac at least a new look I was wondering if anyone has customized their dock and Icons to look like yosemite, I'd love to just be able to have that nice new look, I also download the Flavours app and the Yosemite theme, very cool I like the way its looks and would be sweeter to be able to make the dock look like that as well :D anybody know how I could do that?

Thanks in advance

If you can find "Superdocker" somewhere still available for download, that will work to customize your dock. It doesn't work with Mountain Lion, Mavericks, or Yosemite but it still works with Snow Leopard and Lion. It's also free.

Thanks for relaying, I'll try to look for that app, I also was checking another app called CandyBar and seems to be free also, just have to check where or how to get the put the yosemite theme :)

If you decide on CandyBar, make sure you get the free registration code along with the app otherwise it'll act like nag ware. The developer released Candy Bar for free some time ago and gave a generic registration code along with it.
