I've had my first go with Pandora 1.34 beta2. I used it to create a 'Mode 2' (not sure if that was the best option?), Pandora-style USB of Mavericks - I created it on a iATKOS S3 install.

 

I installed to a 8GB USB pen drive and apparently all went fine but it didn't even boot as far as chameleon or whatever bootloader it uses:

boot1: error

Was as far as I got!

 

Some of the Pandora install screens definitely need more or clearer explanation of the options - especially the one which asks you to pick 1 of 3 modes - 'original' (?), mode 2 that has USB3 or mode 3 that drops the gfx drivers during install, or something. Each option needs more explanation of who should use it and when / under what circumstances. Networking doesn't work on my Hack so I was unable to reference the online help whilst I was installing. I was also very unsure if to go for retail or a Pandora install.

 

Also, it seems that when Pandora asks for the install image, it really means the InstallEMD.dmg, not the full OSX install dmg so it should  really ask for InstallESD.dmg specifically.

I could suggest to "chflags nohidden" the chameleon files. Better yet, all the files on the USB stick. 

The boot, Extra, mach_kernal where hidden.

Hi. 

 

First off Pandor's Box need to be on the desktop or it will not work.... It should work from any location. 

I selected option 1, pointed it to the OS X installer, my dsdt and smbois files  then to the destination USB drive.

 

No boot file was installed, no Extras folder... nothing. This will not boot.

You could patch System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg/Distribution

I hade the error " Mac OS X can't be installed on this computer. "

The solution was to  open System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg/Distribution with Flat Package Editor

And change:
Line #8 - min RAM required (2GB default)
Line #35 - virtual machine installation support (change false to true)
Line #60 - platform/system board checks (change false to true)

Cant remember where I got this hint from.

I think that erros you see was cause by another error happened before mounting a disk image provided inside your app or dmg. This is clearly visible to me.
