**Post updated with Chameleon RC4 files**
Chameleon, the widely used bootloader among hackintosh users, is out with yet another update. This latest version ditches that ugly, white text/black background and upgrades to 100% sexy. In addition to aesthetic improvements, functionality was also added; you will now see a logo for each Operating System choice. Plus, non-bootable partitions are no longer displayed, along with the option to selectively hide partitions. RC4 mostly boasts behind the scenes updates, with the exception of the hidden partition option. You can see the official release notes here.
Now that you’ve been informed, download the file and follow the instructions below. Pay close attention as these instructions have changed from previous versions of Chameleon.
1. Make sure the untarred folder is on your desktop.
2. Open Terminal and type “diskutil list” w/o the quotes
3. Find the partition with OS X installed on it and remember its identifier ie. rdisk0s1
4. Type cd /Users/YOURUSERNAME/Desktop/Chameleon-2.0-RC3-r658-bin/i386 but replacing YOURUSERNAME with, you guessed it, your username.
5. Copy and paste the following commands into terminal but replacing the Xs in the second command with the numbers from step 3.
sudo fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdiskX
sudo dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXsX
sudo cp boot /
***For those that had any custom settings in com.apple.boot.plist – this file will remain untouched so any boot flags or other stuff you may have added will still be used at boot***
