We edited

/System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist and

/System/Library/CoreServices/Setup Assistant.app/Contents/Info.plist

Now we are making patch to chameleon.


You patch these files in the installer?

Or on hard drive?

If I have Chameleon installed, can I just take the boot file? Or would all of clover be needed? I'm unfamiliar with it.

Clover doesn't seem to want to work for me. Hangs at a 6 and a blinking _.

Chameleon boots fine with the modified SystemVersion.plist but the installer crashes with error messages in the log about requiring 10.8...

Here are chameleons 1819 I compiled and were used to boot 10.8. I haven't tested them myself!

1. Tested by my friend that boots ONLY 10.8. (maybe also Snow Leopard, I don't know)

2. NOT TESTED that should be able to boot any OS X system. It compiled fine.

Thanks to MietasSR for help.
I will try to post diff file tomorrow, if second version of the file works fine.

No more SystemVersion editions are required.

I haven't installed Mountain Lion. Please don't ask me how to install this! I just edited Chameleon.

So what exactly is the process for install?

We need to replace chameleon?

And then we have to do what?

I haven't downloaded yet, as I am not home. But is it a separate installer we install from another partition? Or an upgrade? Or?

Currently I am copying the base image. If I understand this thread I have to then run Chameleon 1819 on the USB stick, then replace the system version.plist with one using the 10.7 instead of 10.8, then boot and install? Will try this now and report back.

EDIT: Ok so running 1819 on the USB drive did not let me get past bios post screen. I do know that if I don't run chameleon on the drive, I can see it in my normal boot options, the deal is I get a KP if I try and boot that way. Any suggestions?

EDIT 2: Currently trying to boot from a backup drive running chameleon boot file janek provided, and then from there boot the USB Drive with just the ML image copied. Will report back,

EDIT 3: Backup drive won't boot, maybe I replaced the wrong boot file. Will keep trying until I figure this out.

EDIT 4: I think I did something wrong. Now, after I restored the BSD to the USB, it won't even let my computer get past the post screen. I guess I will wait till there is a definite guide to do this,

@janek202

both work to boot 10.8 but #2 fails to boot 10.7 (prints "Mach-O file has bad magic number" and goes back to menu) and 10.6 hangs at "IOAPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 64:87". 10.6 boots fine.

This one boots 10.8 and 10.7.3, but 10.6.8 hangs at "IOAPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 64:87".

Edit: sorry, I had a bad DSDT.aml in SL partition (added RAM after patching).

It boots them all :)
