hey Everyone,

I'm very new to MAC. But Learning. I donwnloaded the new version of Chameleon.


The above post was great by c0rk007hck, I followed the instructions and I was able to exit on the terminal. And after restarting the Desktop it did boot up and I saw like a logo and then restarted again and it is keep happening.

The step I didnt take is where exactly I would copy the "theme folder and smbios.plist. Because I dont have "extra" folder. So Where should I copy this now( Should I make the folder my self but then where would I put that folder?) Where do I find Kexts that I would be putting in Extra/EXTENSIONS. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT I DONT HAVE ANY EXTRA FOLDER BUT I DO HAVE EXTENSIONS FOLDER IN SYSTEM/LIBRARY. DO you think this Where I will be putting kexts but which one or from where , is it from the Chameleon folder? I have Snow Leopard 10.6.3.


This Step: Was not able to do because not having the Extra folder..........-----------------------------------------------------------
For Chameleon 2.0 only
---------------------------------------------------------------

10. Copy Themes and smbios.plist to your Extra folder.
You can some themes in this forum, as well some smbios files.

11. Finally add any kexts you wish to /Extra/Extensions folder like you usually would.


I dont seem to find it any where. Any Help Please


Thank You

Create a folder named Extra at the root of the drive where you installed Chameleon.

I used Enoch http://onehalfkiller.com/?p=605, it will install the extra folder with the options you have selected during setup.

It's a start. When you see the boot screen, type: -v -f
And press enter, try to take notice of the last lines before reboot.
