OK Version 2.1 455 Launched, added a more unit tests and made the flag edition api much more robust, I'd like to get some feedback now as it seems quite robust.
Hint:
To test the boot config without changing the real one create a copy and select the copy in the boot setup / boot config path menu,
then open a Finder window in /Extra(or wherever your boot file is) and select the detail view with preview, now you can check in real time the mods happening ...
Try hard edits on a copy, I just did that and couldn't break my flags in the boot config file.

Version 459 updated, fixes some partitions with no name would not display, also fixes potential refresh problems when playing with hide, rename and default partitions textfields.

Install by double click. Then go into System Preferences and then so see it as an prefpane (Chameleon).

It's not so surprising, the last version of Rek's prefpane is from December 2011.

Besides needing fixes to work correctly with Mountain Lion it probably needs to be updated to work with new Chameleon features as well.

Would it be possible to add the option to display the partition labels? On computers with multiple hard drives and multiple partitions of the same size is very difficult to differentiate.
Furthermore, each OS name them differently, making it even more complicated.

Would it be very difficult to add the option to autoupdate?

Thanks and regards.

Sorry to hear that the prefpane crashes in MTL.
I gave it a quick look yesterday and it runs in debug mode inside xcode, but as soon as I start it from the apple menu: it crashes.
FWIW I am not the only prefpane to crash in MTL apparently with the exact same context (GC forced disabled in MTL prefpane) ...
I updated the xcode project and cleaned up some memory leaks in case someone wants to have a look though,
and I will keep you folks updated about my progress.

You should not use this unless you're using a version of Chameleon from December 2011 which is when the prefpane was last updated.

 

Some things will probably work, but Chameleon has changed a lot in the past three years.
