rEFInd Next Theme by sdbinwiiexe rEFInd Next Theme by sdbinwiiexe
As I plan on setting up a triple boot on my computer once the new versions of Windows, OS X, and Linux become released, I decided an update to my rEFIt/rEFInd boot screen was in order. This theme is inspired by both iOS 7 and Windows 8 interfaces.

rEFIt's development has been halted for a while now; a maintained for of it called rEFInd is available as a suggested replacement.

I created the theme using current themes/guides as a base, but have not thoroughly tested it. If there are any issues, please let me know and I'll see what I can do. Instructions for how to set up the theme are in the package, as well as instructions for how to set up OS-specific icon profiles (useful for linux distros).

The theme contains icons for the following operating systems:
FreeBSD, PC Linux OS, Puppy Linux, Legacy, Red Hat, Linux, Sabayon, OS X, Slackware, Arch, Mageia, Ubuntu, Chrome OS, Mandriva, Unknown, Debian, Manjaro, Windows, Elementary, Linux Mint, Fedora, OpenSUSE, and Steam OS
More may be added in the future.

December 25, 2013:
    - Windows and Linux Mint icons have been downscaled slightly to be more visually appealing.
    - Several boot icons have been included for graphical boot (notes have been added to the readme file for how to create additional boot icons).
    - Added resolution-scaled backgrounds.  Simply designate the background corresponding to your mac's native resolution (as discussed in the readme file).

May 26, 2014:
    - Linux OS/boot icons changed to a tux variation
    - Shell tool icon added
    - Renamed backtrack icons to kali

October 22, 2014:
    - Changed Kali icon to a thicker, more basic variation of the logo
    - Added alternate (traditional) Linux Mint logo

Excellent work!!!  rEFInd is a blessing for any multiboot scenario and, thankfully, Roderick Smith picked up where rEFIt left off!!!  Best wishes!

I am confused how to use this. D:

I have the folder located in S:\EFI\refind\next-theme

Now how do I actually set it since I cant access that drive on Windows 8.1 Pro which is using C drive.

To set rEFInd to use the theme, you'll have to boot an OS that can access that drive (usually installed on the OS X partition). Then open up the S:\EFI\refind\refind.conf file and add "include next-theme/theme.conf" to the end of it in a text editor.

It shouldn't really matter if Windows can access that drive.  Basically the mac boots the Apple Bootloader, which then boots rEFInd (which is why rEFInd is on the OS X partition).

For similar icons: The appbar.console.png looks like a good replacement for the default rEFInd terminal icon =)

Those are actually really awesome.  I'll likely add the console icon and I might add the linux tux icon as well instead of the linux icon I have currently (based off of the linux foundation logo).  It was surprisingly hard to find a modern-looking generic linux icon.
