Fixed showing Chameleon's details for Chimera and ^Andy^...

 

Added new Chinese and Spanish translations.

Chinese with both TW+CN by crazybirdy

Please check if everything is ok:

Oh, it's ok now. That's great, big help, thanks again. :rolleyes:

 

[EDIT]

I can compile trunk 884, but found no more boot0hfs both 881+884.

The boot0hfs seems not be included any more, is that right?

How can I ignore the configuration screen for automatic script to compile trunk 884 via svn and compile by itself ?

I have no idea...

I simply want to compile chameleon with xcodebuild or make, without any strange things like I was doing it before and copy boot, boot0, boot0hfs and boot1h files.

 

I was testing my script for automatic download, compilation latest trunk of chameleon and creation rev.plist file with information about rev number and changelog, so I could put it on a server and execute every hour instead of running it manually and sending it into my dropbox but it doesn't work anymore... :rolleyes:

 

If anyone knows how to compile the latest trunk and receive boot, boot0, boot0hfs and boot1h files only using terminal commands (so I could put it into a sh file), please let me know.

It was fixed now, no more boot0hfs needed.

[EDIT]

I think, you may need to keep boot0hfs function for old version, via copy boot0 to be boot0hfs for new version.

 

[EDIT]

I see.

Still not sure what's the difference between the new boot0 and old boot0+boot0hfs.

Ok, If I understood it correctly, there will be only boot0 file, right? no more boot0hfs?

 

What about activating partition, is it still needed?

 

Edit: Great, compilation works again, thank you, chameleon team. But I receive only boot0 file which is boot0hfs (md5 is the same). Currently I added boot0 and boot0hfs (md5 of boot0hfs from previous rev and boot0 from latest rev is the same) from previous version...

Finally back home and tried the EFI part

 

Doesn't work here too... ;)

 

-activated EFI support in preferences

-after restart of CW i went to menue bar and clicked "format EFI as HFS file system"

-"mount and check" appears

-clicked "mount and check" ➔ message appears "Chameleon is not installed on selected partition"

 

No big deal since i started from scratch with a virgin hdd !

 

-clicked "install" ➔ Error message "Couldn't mount EFI etc, etc..."

 

I also tried to format EFI manually, but that doesn't help too

 

To me it looks like CW can somehow ( mount EFI ?? ) and read that there's no Chameleon on it,

but then it fails to mount EFI for installation.

 

I'm no programmer and have no idea but maybe this can help you to find sth...?!

 

Added "Build date" to localizable.strings

de.lproj.zip

What about activating partition, is it still needed?

For what I understand it's not needed if you compile boot0 with default config. If you disable "boot0 HFS prefered" then it's needed.

 

select the "boot0 HFS prefered" option in the config

screen. It's enabled by default (it modified the behavior of boot0h,

it doesn't cause an extra file to be built anymore

New beta build of Chameleon Wizard should work correctly with EFI Partitions.

Please test.

Previous post:

So with default config boot0 is really boot0hfs.

When I disable "boot0 HFS prefered" boot0 will be boot0, known from previous revisions...

 

So if I want to have both (boot0 and boot0hfs, I need them both for the installer) I would have to compile chameleon twice: with default config, then rename boot0 to boot0hfs, and compile it again with disabled "boot0 HFS prefered"...

Am I correct?

I'm waiting for more people to confirm that the latest build works with EFI partitions.

 

Then I'll relase it.

Great work Janek, now working too on my system. :)

 

Another suggestion/request for further improvement would be if EFI could be automatically mounted to the Finder so we can copy the "Extra" folder with all the necessary files to it without using terminal.

But anyway... i'm happy with this great app !

 

thank you

Try Menu => EFI => Mount partiton. It isn't automatically, but EFI shows at finder, so you can copy files without using terminal. Then you can select unmount partition menu item.

The EFI partition fails to mount with the following console output:

 

executing /sbin/mount_hfs
mount_hfs: Invalid argument

Make sure to format EFI in HFS...

 

Exactly, this error is shown, when EFI partition isn't formatted to HFS.

You can format it using menu item. I didn't wanted to format it automatically, like I was doing it before, because you can easily lose data this way...

 

 

Version 1.8. officially released.

New version 1.9 released.

New fdisk440 compiled only in i386 and x86_64 architectures.

Default option selection. If boot file exists on selected partition default option will be update. Otherwise it will be boot0hfs.

Small updates in code.

Probably an idea to MD5 sum the boot0hfs as the one on disk may be wrong for the boot file.

boot0hfs doesn't change much, but if it does....better to be safe than sorry.

Good job so far.

 

Tell me how to do that, and I will add it.

 

I don't want to guess fdisk/dd commands, it's too easy to lose data this way...

 

Edit: The new rev 909 made my system unbootable (keeps rebooting before showing chameleon GUI). I uploaded 905 again.

 

Edit 2: rev 911 is not bootable on my computer, too.

Same here. Luckily, I installed it to my external backup HDD as usual.
