i used this method to install Lion, and when updated to 10.7.2 i have gray screen and spinning wheel at boot. I replaced boot file on the thumb drive and reinstalled Lion again, updated to 10.7.2, it only boots up if i boot from the thumb drive, if i boot from HDD it hangs again, where did i go wrong?

As you weren't very specific about which method it was you used, I'll explain what I did because it worked for me.
  • download 10.7.2 combo updater from Apple
  • download Chameleon Wizard, and then install latest version of Chameleon (v1618 was the one I used.)
  • download boot_for_10.7.2_and_icloud.zip and copy the boot file into your HD's root directory (the one with Users, Extras, Applications, System, etc.)
  • open Terminal and issue this command "sudo chmod 755 /boot"
  • then this one "sudo chown root:wheel /boot"
  • next, either dl & open KextWizard; repair permissions and rebuild caches (or search for the Terminal commands to do so)
  • then copy AppleHDA.kext (assuming you have audio working) and anything else that you've added to S/L/E to desktop for post-installation
  • Finally, apply 10.7.2 update, reboot, pray to <DEITY HERE>
... and hopefully voi la!

alternatively, you could enter verbose mode (down arrow key when it shows the HD on GUI boot) and jot down the offending kext.

Yep,

Easy updating to 10.7.2, as long as you have a Chameleon that's new enough. Using r1627VS myself at the moment, and both iCloud and FaceTime work fine.

Only thing I had to "fix" was AppleHDA, and did that after the update had completed, but before restart - this way I only needed to restart once.

Great.

What version of Chameleon and what kexts do you have installed? One of these variables are usually the problem.

Very frustrated, I have a perfectly working OS 10.7.1 on my EP45-UD3R with Radeon 4890HD, when I upgrade to 10.7.2 it will not boot, I am using Eliade’s guid and components, Altho I have upgraded Chameleon to v1618 and changed the root boot file with the new one posted. I have used Kext Wizard to repair permissions and rebuild cache in S/L/E, here is a picture of what I am getting... Any help please?

Is it hanging right there? Are you sure your video drivers are working correctly? Also had a perfect machine before this and had to use an enabler for my video card in 10.7.2.

Hm, anyone else here noticed some audio problems in 10.7.2? After the update my sound still worked fine, with the exception of my front headphone jack, which worked earlier. After some fiddling around, namely re-installing and patching the kexts, I now have it back. The only problem is that the "auto switch" from headphones to speakers and vice versa is gone.

Any thoughts about this?

simply a suggestion..if can help someone. I used dvd IATKOS L1 to install lion 10.7.1. My ga-ep45-ds4 have a famous and epic "brazilian" bios, you can find it also for ga-ep45-ud3r !Using that bios you don't need a dsdt, not smbios ( but if you want.. you can use easy an smbios macpro 3.1). My extra folder contain , infact, just : fakesmc, kext audio (lion ready), kext ahci-intel-sata and , obviously, the com.apple.boot.plist. Everything work OOTB : ethernet (ethernet work better using realtek drivers), firewire, usb, native speedstep, all sensor ( cpu, gpu, northbridge using fakesmc plugins and a software like "istat menus"), native sleep, native reboot etc. Everything works the same fine also on Lion. Using that bios and iatkos L1..you can update across software update...exactly as you where on a lion retail. As you surely know ...Iatkos L1 is not simply a patched distributios, but it's is like a retail dvd simply because original lion was't born like a native bootable OS , so it's very useful to have a dvd bootable ready like snow leopard dvd retail ...and furthermore iatkos L1 have NO bugs like the old distributions . For those have that brazilian bios ..in the iatkos L1 list can be selected just this options:
fakesmc, chimera bootloader ( to fix facetime running @ 64 bit), intel sata kext, audio kext , smbios 3.1 (if you want it)... then NO FURTHER OPTIONS. I selected also pciroot fix ..but i think it's even complete unnecessary. if you reflect on it.... all those kexts and fix you can find and use also separately from iatkos! After every system update..you must replace only your kext audio in S/L/E ! Hope to be useful to someone!
Ciao! ;)

Because -f works (ignore "Kernel Flags" specified in boot configuration file), there is something wrong in in either org.apple.Boot.plist or org.chameleon.Boot.plist.

Ok i cleared the boot flags out of /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist. Repaired permissions etc. Same thing, errors but they go away when i boot -f. I updated to chameleon r1650. Same.
Doesn't -f actually mean ignore boot caches? I cleared them with onyx. Same thing! Hating!

Well this is from the official docs, unless someone's changed it:

"-F (ignore boot configuration file)"

Might help if you post the contents of org.chameleon.Boot.plist and org.apple.Boot.plist so we can see if there is a conflict.

And your only problem is that you are getting errors with audio but when you boot with -f they go away right?

Could someone with a fully working audio setup on 10.7.2 post their setup?

I cannot get decent audio out of my back ports, but luckily my front headphone jack still works as it should.

Using the files provided in the packs in the first post.

If you have the ALC889a sound on your board, FOLLOW THIS POST and it should help. I have rear and front sound working with headphones even.

I tried that, but might have had the wrong legacyhda.kext, and/or needed a HDAEnabler - which is weird, since I've fixed HDEF in my DSDT.

Anyway, I decided to try something else, I removed all my sound-kexts, re-applied the vanilla AppleHDA.kext from 10.7.2, and then started over. I'm now using three kexts in /S/L/E, and everything works as it should again.

The kexts are:

ALC8xxHDA.kext
AppleHDA.kext (a rollback kext)
HDAEnabler889a.kext

You can download them from here:
