Please report me any bugs or ideas for new features.
I would never make this application without support and ideas by osx86.org.pl team. Thank you, guys!
Thanks a lot to the whole Chameleon team for the awesome work.

Excellent idea janek202! Great work!
I think what I can add for future versions is perhaps a radio button to select between Leopard, Snow Leopard and Lion (I hear that Lion wants a special parameter like UseKernelCache=Yes) and also the installation and use of modules in /Extra/modules path. To be honest, I installed Resolution.dlyb and don't know how to activate it or what to do to see it works :(
Does your application inform itself of its own updates, too?

Yes... very nice, i'll test when i'm back home.

A cool feature would be if one could install to EFI too, i.e. i prefer to have everything there and leave
the OS untouched... :rolleyes:

Awesome app but needs one more feature : current chameleon version, which could be implemented like this

strings BOOT_FILE_HERE | grep "Chameleon v"

eg.
strings /Volumes/Snow\ Leopard/boot | grep "Chameleon v"
Darwin/x86 boot v5.0.132 - Chameleon v2.0-RC5 r823

Please report me any bugs or ideas for new features.
If anyone knows how to build Chameleon's sources on linux without Xcode, please let me know.

I would never make this application without support and ideas by osx86.org.pl team. Thank you, guys!


Amazing! Truly, you're a genius, Janek. I am desperately fighting the urge to donate you money for all of this quality coding. If you don't mind my asking, are you a programmer? Few with your level of expertise are willing to produce such treasures with zero compensation and scant praise. I applaud you for doing this, you are truly a generous spirit. :D This community desperately needs this to expand and accelerate its development. Your last two products stand above the primitive and limited tools that most of us had to resort to streamline and accelerate the processes of various operating system machinations. ;)

Worked like charm! I just needed to reinstall Chameleon due to my Win7 SP1 update :) and your app arrived at perfect time to save me a manual installation. Thank you for your good work!

New Beta version 1.2:
Links in the first post.
Added:
Showing installed Chameleon's revision. Thanks LIMITER!
New option: Backup boot file.

If you don't mind my asking, are you a programmer?

No. It's just a hobby. I'm studying at the moment.

Edit: Small update. Installed Chameleon's revision is now updated after installation.

Thank you for this excellent app, it's a very good idea and really helps as previously getting the latest builds of chameleon was quite tedious!

One thing though, when I first run this app and updated chameleon it broke chameleon themes and I just got a text based selector, I reinstalled the old version of Chameleon and then installed with this app again and my chameleon themes still work!

Hi Janeck,

Yet another great idea after Kext Wizzard.

I have a suggestion:

Is it possible to have an option which allowws you to install from a local i386 folder. This would be handy when internet connection is not available.



Keep up the good work,

best regards :rolleyes:

If I understood You correctly, It have been arleady implemented. Just select tab: "Folder on disk", and select Chameleon's i386 folder.
