I installed Mountain Lion using Uni-beast. I made a bootable USB using Chimera 1.11 (put the Extra folder from Uni-beast USB to this Chimera boot USB). Now, I have to boot in -v mode otherwise I get kernel panic! and, the system identifies my graphics card as ATI Mobility Radeon HD5400 series 5 rather than identifying it exactly as 5470.

Now, I made another bootable USB using latest Chameleon 2050(enoch-rev2050). I used the same Extra folder which I got while installing Mountain Lion using Uni-beast. It boots fast and I can boot without -v option and it identifies my graphics card exactly! But, my Elantech ps/2 trackpad does not work (keyboard works)!!!

I guess it is due to the different boot loader but is there any way through which I could solve above problems. My system specs are in signature.

I am still booting using USB drive as my system is still in test phase.

rebuild you kext cache and you are good to go
extension folder ==> kext utility app ==> password ==> done !!

btw you are using appleps2nub and controller kexts right ??

I had same problem - complete unbelievable that -v helps but true - at least with 10.8.2 Beta and all available chameleon/chimera i got ALWAYS KP without -v and always no KP using -v.

You can take a look here and can be fixed (by DL acpirollback.zip) - THANKS to unixservice - by using 2 older (10.8.0/1) IO...kexts.

Yes, I'm using those two kexts. I tried like you said but didnt help. btw, I got a message from kext utility app saying 'Extensions.mkext could not be created' but I already have Extensions.mkext file in Extra.
