Fixed a bug with sprintf (rek).


sprintf from rek (rekursor)?

aside from memory detection, anyone has a personal opinion as to which is better? RC5pre8 by rekursor + many others or the one man team AsereBLN boot v1.1.8?

ive used both but i can't tell the difference.

TY for the response ;)

I never had a problem with the previous three versions from ASERE except the cosmetic font bug but this new 1.1.8 causes a KP as soon as my 4870 drivers load. Gone back to using the latest Netkas which does not detect memory but does graphics well. Might try again with 1.1.8 when there is an installer—this last time I just updated 1.1.7 to 1.1.8 by dragging boot across to the USB stick and maybe that is what is causing the KP.
In terms of speed difference, I think there is none.

there are some modifications also to boot1h and boot0 so it's better to install all them together, the cange made are visible on github source

Thanks scrax.
Partitioning the USB stick and running your installer and then copying my Extra folder back into the USB stick did the trick.

Anybody knows what are the changes in boot1h and boot0?

As far as I know, when Asere made the boot file, he said to also install boot1h and boot0 because the "chameleon team" made changes in RC4.

I already have boot1h and boot0 from RC4 when rc4 was initially released. So I just copied the boot file and seems to work fine. Did Asere made changes with these files as well? Or is he using the Rc4 original files?

THanks!

Hello to everybody, I'm trying to figure out the correct way of setting manually my SMUUID.
Note: I replaced all MAC address characters but the last one.

Method without PlatformUUID.kext:
When setting to com.apple.boot.plist:
<key>system-id</key>
<string>No</string>
and to smbios.plist this:
<key>SMUUID</key>
<string>00000000-0000-1000-8000-00aaaaaaaaa9</string>
when chameleon starts it displays system-id 00000000-0000-1000-8000-00aaaaaaaaa9 so it's correct, but when I open SystemProfiler it shows 00000000-0000-1000-8000-00aaaaaaaaa8. Not the UUID I want.

Method with PlatformUUID.kext:
When setting to com.apple.boot.plist:
<key>system-id</key>
<string>No</string>
remove from smbios.plist this:
<key>SMUUID</key>
<string>00000000-0000-1000-8000-00aaaaaaaaa9</string>
and add my PlatformUUID.kext with my 00000000-0000-1000-8000-00aaaaaaaaa9 on it.
when chameleon starts it displays system-id 00000000-0000-1000-8000-00aaaaaaaaa8, but when I open SystemProfiler it shows 00000000-0000-1000-8000-00aaaaaaaaa9. The UUID I want, but why when it boots it shows different?

I'm missing something?

Thanks in advance.

Anybody using this bootloader or later versions will want this.
All compiled versions do not include a cdboot.
So...
I made a bash script to make a cdboot
download latest source and unzip/untar to desktop
download latest compiled.
copy boot/boot_with_embeded_theme from compiled to root of source as boot
save below code between #start and #end as Makecdboot.command and make it executable
copy Makecdboot.command to root of source.
run it and you should have new cdboot with memory info etc in root.
Use it to make all "New" versions.
Enjoy

#start
#!/bin/bash
set -u
set -e
set -E

if [ "`whoami`" != "root" ]
then
echo "You Must Be Root To Run This"
sudo -s "$0"
exit
fi
file="$0"
WORKDIR=$(cd -P -- $(dirname -- "$file") && pwd -P)
cd "$WORKDIR/Booter"
make clean
make embedtheme

boot="$WORKDIR/boot"
cdboot="$WORKDIR/Booter/sym/i386/cdboot"
dd if="$boot" of="$cdboot" conv=sync bs=2k seek=1
stat -f%z "$boot" \
| perl -ane "print pack('V',@F[0]);" \
| dd of="$cdboot" bs=1 count=4 seek=2044 conv=notrunc
cp "$cdboot" "$WORKDIR"
#end

edit
Newer Version, same idea but will build ALL cdboots.
Just copy boot and boot_* to source root and run below script

#!/bin/bash
set -u
set -e
set -E

if [ "`whoami`" != "root" ]
then
echo "You Must Be Root To Run This"
sudo -s "$0"
exit
fi
file="$0"
WORKDIR=$(cd -P -- $(dirname -- "$file") && pwd -P)

Make()
{

echo "Making $cdboot"
dd if="$boot" of="$cdboot" conv=sync bs=2k seek=1
stat -f%z "$boot" \
| perl -ane "print pack('V',@F[0]);" \
| dd of="$cdboot" bs=1 count=4 seek=2044 conv=notrunc
if [ "$cdboot1" != "" ]
then
cp -Rp "$cdboot" "$cdboot1"
touch -r "$WORKDIR/boot" "$cdboot1"
fi
echo "Finished $cdboot"
}
if [ ! -e "$WORKDIR/cdboot" ]
then
rm -rf "$WORKDIR"/cdboo*
cd "$WORKDIR/Booter"
echo "Making cdboot"
make clean
make embedtheme
cdboot="$WORKDIR/Booter/sym/i386/cdboot"
cp -p "$cdboot" "$WORKDIR/cdboot"
touch -r "$WORKDIR/boot" "$WORKDIR/cdboot"
boot="$WORKDIR/boot"
cdboot="$WORKDIR/cdboot"
cdboot1=""
Make
fi
if [ -e "$WORKDIR/boot_with_debugs" ]
then
boot="$WORKDIR/boot_with_debugs"
cdboot="$WORKDIR/cdboot"
cdboot1="$WORKDIR/cdboot_with_debugs"
Make
fi
if [ -e "$WORKDIR/boot_with_embedded_theme" ]
then
boot="$WORKDIR/boot_with_embedded_theme"
cdboot="$WORKDIR/cdboot"
cdboot1="$WORKDIR/cdboot_with_embedded_theme"
Make
fi
touch -r "$WORKDIR/boot" "$WORKDIR/cdboot"

It gave me memory fault and cant even go to chameleon menu using the boot. or the boot_with_debugs file.
The screen said about memory allocation fault on gui.c.
However the booting is not fail if using the boot_with_embedded_theme. file ???

I use Nvidia 8600GT add-on video cards on G31 chipset motherboards with Intel GMA3100 disabled; OSX 10.6.2 myhack installer.

After I clean the USB stick, I installed AsereBLN Booter Version 1.1.8 to it and then boot the system in my local hard disk through the bootable USB stick.
There's only one snow leopard system in my local hard disk.
I boot the system with -v flag and the log will show: devfs_kernel_mount:fa, and the system will hung finally.
If I install AsereBLN Booter Version 1.1.8 to the harddisk, everything goes fine.

Version 1.1.9 has been released for a long time, please update

Update Version 1.1.9:
Added nVidia ION device lookup.
Added a feature to set/override the nVidia NVCAP value using NVCAP_ key in com.apple.Boot.plist.

If you want to override the NVCAP value, you must determine the PCI DeviceID of your graphic card. For instance: my new GTX260 has the DeviceID 0Ă—05e2. Knowing the DeviceID add this to your com.apple.Boot.plist:
<key>NVCAP_05e2</key>
<string>0000000000000000000000000000000000000000</string>
The NVCAP value is exactly 20 bytes long. You have to specify it using ASCII-HEX (0-9,a-f).
