If needed also clean up the warnings in the source (if any)...
I like stuff to be perfected so....

Yes I can write kext's and more from scratch...
It's not that hard really... just see Apple's IOKit kext tutorial...
BTW: I allready made 2 apps from scratch... just take a look at my PPF-O-Suite.
Anyhow... I don't have anything to prove to you...
If you think you are so great why don't you make anything huh...
That's my opinion anyway... besides... the stuff that I would add to it would be simple and I wouldn't change the name with this one...
Last one I did lots of changes and found it necessary to change the name...
This one is different...
Please go bother someone else with your {censored}...


Well proper Mac id data and SSDT override...
That's what I would add for the moment...
If needed also clean up the warnings in the source (if any)...

I'm not really sure what the "proper Mac ID" helps with, and adding SSDT override is just more useless work.
The warnings have been fixed.

Note: please if you ever consider releasing a fork, use a your version, and don't increment the current Chameleon one, we got some issues with what you did with 1.0.11. I'm sorry to say this in public, but you didn't want to change it.

Thanks.

OK, will do...

Yeah but I think it is great...
Less work (actually almost none so) it can't be better...
Thumbs up, keep up the great work guys... :)

Yeah I'm pretty sure you can't wait for source to change something and mark it(like dogs) with your name, like you did with old one and others work.
I wonder if you can write some kext or something from start to finish, if yes prove it if no please don't make me vomit again.
I will ask chameleon dev's, beg if necessary, to add a special note in license: "The usage of this source is forbidden for Andy Vandijck, DO NOT touch it!"


I love you ! :(

I made an 2.0RC1 installer app out of an older chameleon installer.
So you must not do terminal commands or knowing your disk/part numbers.
Select your HD/partition by the installer.
For me it worked on MBR HD.
Also worked to boot XP from an different (other) HD.

For EFI EXTRA (boot132) install you must do some more (terminal) work.
Read the readme of orig. chameleon installer or hints below here.


it doesn't work on my system. To the reboot, after the boot it is restarted.
How do I do to restore the old boot? thx advance

few usefull keys to add to boot.plist on partition where bootloader installed

<key>Default Partition</key>
<string>hd(1,2)</string>
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1400x1050x32</string>


one sets video mode for chameleon screen, another one sets defauult partition to boot, for chameleon, u can look at partitions list by pressing tab durring in chameleon.

Very Good , and thanks!!
I've installed , seems to be all ok, also sleep works as well and boot time is really faster,
the only issue I've is a lot of _CFGetHostUUIDString: unable to determine UUID for host. Error: 35.
Is anyway to Override UUID like witn older version of Chameleon and some customs APPLESMBios.kext ?

Thanks again !!

Netkas, will you be adding 64bit option (-x64) to Chameleon? (like you did with PC EFI...)
Just curious...

Use my AppleSMBIOS... it should set the needed UUID...

boot time cant be faster, it depends mostly on kernel/system, not bootloader.

Sure, just install boot into root (/)
And use DD with the usual windows style \\... commands for boot0 and boot1h...
It should work...

Well yeah, very nice but since it doesn't have SSDT override I'm not yet switching...
I'm waiting for the eventual release...
Very cool though...


It was a long time ago that I explained why SSDT override is unnecessary. I repeat in 2 words: put contents of your SSDT to DSDT and add option DropSSDT=y

First try to boot again , sometimes it needs 2 boots once.
If not working boot from other system (DVD / other HD) and reinstall your PCEFI V9 / Chameleon V11 bootloader from there again on that target HD.
Never try any such new bootloaders without an working(test it before) other OS X Boot HD.
