Should there something be wrong with Chameleon?
I like the fact that there are more candidates trying to make a perfect bootloader.
They invent new things and it will result in better bootloaders with the others until there is one ultimate perfect bootloader.
Chameleon is great but still not perfect.

Actually when I replied there was no details at all in the post, and it just looked like a wish list. (Guess some of those "database errors" we have been having caused the problem!) So this is interesting and my first post was due to the forum software not showing the details now visible.

Could you write a full description in English. I think this is based on Chameleon.

It looks very interesting,but I'm forced to use PC_EFI 9,because I want to use 10A354 and I think that it doesn't support Snow Leopard.

It is probably based on Chameleon,but haven't installed it,yet,as I don't get how to download it even through Google Translate. :)

looking great!
does it support loading "/Extra" or "/Volumes/EFI/Extra" kexts and kernels?

EDIT:
WOOOOW!!
this thing works as advertised.

i installed it on my usb stick - it booted anything i tried: installed osx system, retail 10.5.6 dvd, xp on a separate drive, vista on a separate drive. it would probably boot my shoe if i plugged it in somehow.
the only limitation is that it needs to be installed onto a HFS formatted partition.

it supports additional kexts or Extensions.mkext located in (install volume)/Darwin/System/Library/
boot.plist is in (install volume)/Darwin/

it even has a cool slide effect when changing boot partition.

i took a screenshot of my usb stick folder structure so you can see what gets where:

thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

PS:
i know its a pain getting to even open this chinese site, not to mention finding the file there. but i found ANOTHER CHINESE FORUM :unsure: where actually i managed to locate the download link. http://www.macfans.c....php?tid=158231
I would gladly upload it on Rapidshare or elsewhere for easier download, but dunno how developers think about it.

Oh, nice!
A bootloader NOT based on Chameleon...
I think I'll give it a try on my USB key.
Does anyone know if it boots Snow Kitty?
Well,if I find my USB key,I could check it and report :(

This needs a good English explanation and documentation. I really need DSDT, and I don't know how to use openDSDT.

Here is the forum where it came from:

I'll better wait until it's really tested, at least a bit documented and it really supports DSDT, as I'm trying to integrate all possible fixes into my DSDT, so that I don't need 32bit kernel extensions for Snow Kitty.

Arr..I wanna run 10A354 in X86_64

Replace DSDT by putting your file to /Darwin/DSDT.aml

You're right. It DOES support DSDT. :( I just tried it.
Can it also load the smbios.plist?

By the way what is this based on?


Thanks
