Fix Yosemite's asymmetrical Time Machine menu icon

The asymmetrical Time Machine menu icon in Yosemite was bugging me, so I fixed it.

Icon comparison

Here's how to do it:

  1. Open Finder
  2. Press ⌘⇧G
  3. Go to /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/
  4. Replace the four TM*.pdf files with the ones found in this ZIP
    • Make a backup first
    • You'll be asked to enter the admin password
  5. Go to System Preferences » Time Machine
  6. Uncheck and check again the box "Show Time Machine in menu bar"

Now the icon should be back, but symmetrical.
