This is a simple, lightweight, Windows friendly installer for the final release version of Chameleon 2.0 (r1393) and the updated preference panel. Both Lion and Snow Leopard are supported.
It only supports installing to HFS+ partitions.

NB:
Remember that with this version you need to change com.apple.boot.plist to org.chameleon.boot.plist

Enjoy

Do you install 10.6.2 sleep enabler? Kernel panics on sleep enabler rights?
The Chameleon 2 RC4 is compatible with the old one sleep enabler not with a new 10.6.2 on SL 10.6.2
Please check.

BTW after install this boot chameleon 2 rc 4 , i feel like feeling slow.. like being keylogged or something. the screen i typed here felt like typed on 486. and the screen scrolling low. perhaps because the uuidplatform.kext still installed....

This is an unofficial installation package.

PLEASE don't report any problems related to the installation package to Voodoo team. The Voodoo team is responsible for the boot loader itself only.

Use at your own risk

Changes since RC3:
Fixed booting the default partition when using timeout. Added Intel Core i5 detection. Applied rivig's patch against all stage 1 loaders. Now linear address mapping uses 12 bit offsets. Added DigitalDJ's SMBIOS CPU detection patch. Applied IntVar's system-id patch. Applied hnak's read_lba register saving patch. Added radekg's HFS filesystem fix to handle 2GB+ file sizes. Backported ATI device injection EFI64 tables and hibernation fix from netkas' PC_EFI. Thanks and credits goes for them!

Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to making all this possible.

More information at:
Chameleon website (use google to find it since I'm not allowed to put link here)

NB: With this version we no longer need to use platformUUID.kext


Hello,

Yes, i me too.
i was installed using myhack installer with chameleon RC3 included with MBR partition. I was going to upgraded the chameleon using Dr. hurt RC4 installer. IT said successfully but when boot it's still RC3.
So i grabbed the original version with tgz, and did the manual installation to the mbr, the partition, and the boot file to root as in the documentary. Reboot and it is RC4 now.

Any explanation, Dr Hurt?

I'm having issues actually with your installers (both RC3 and RC4, but would prefer to use RC4) on a HP dv5t laptop. I have a working kb/ms during the install and after the install but after I reboot, this installer knocks them out (verified 2x, one of each). I'm doing a vanilla install and using only 'fakesmc2' at the moment. Any ideas or suggestions?
