Thanks to bhast2 for hosting it!
Guide
---------------------------------------------------------

Hey, i added a feature to mackerintels DSDT override chameleon, so it can now load a custom image from the HDD and display it during boot:

looks like this http://picfu.com/lin...d3ffe7ccf042d48

This chameleon doesnt support Extensions from /Extra or EFI partition! Will try to merge the /Extra thing soon... or just contact the chameleon team if they want to merge it :)

How to Install: Just unzip the attached file and copy it to your Mac OS Partition Root / (This will overwrite your current Bootloader)

And boot up with a nice Background :)

Soon i will post a screencast or an illustrated guide how to make your own custom Backgrounds.

Cheers.
