After a ton of work I managed to get this bad boy up and going. I Installed Chameleon RC3, trashed the nvidia injector, added the graphics enabler into boot.plist, booted into safe mode and used kext utilty as well as reinstalling the BSD.pkg so that disk utility would repair the permissions (I had the missing packages error)......then here I am. Typing from SL
Now to start tweaking the hell outta her.
Thanks for this guide, all the comments, and anyone and everyone that works with this stuff.
Amen for Chameleon!!! If you use this, you only need a modified com.apple.Boot.plist in /Extra with the following options per the boothelp.txt that I suggest:
Options useful in the com.apple.Boot.plist file:
Wait=Yes|No Prompt for a key press before starting the kernel.
"Quiet Boot"=Yes|No Use quiet boot mode (no messages or prompt).
Timeout=8 Number of seconds to pause at the boot: prompt.
"Instant Menu"=Yes Force displaying the partition selection menu.
GraphicsEnabler=Yes|No Automatic device-properties generation for graphics cards.
VideoROM=<file> Use an alternate ROM image (default path: /NVIDIA.ROM).
VBIOS=Yes|No Inject VBIOS to device-properties.
EthernetBuiltIn=Yes|No Automatic "built-in"=yes device-properties generation
for ethernet interfaces.
If you do these things... no need for efi strings for graphics ... and your time machine will work with the EthernetBuiltIn set to YES for EN0... and it will automatically countdown/load SL from the boot menu.
Chameleon is always the way to go IMO. RC3 is no different
