Steps to reproduce the problem: 1. boot chameleon 2. select a drive 3. chameleon hangs Expected result: Read the kexts and boot Actual result: It was working good, but one day out of the blue it started to hangs after reading a couple of Info.plists from the system kexts. By freezing i mean chameleon reads the first 10-12 kexts and then freezes - no HDD activity, no progress, nothing. I tried removing the kext where it froze (AppleHWSensor), but then it froze on the next one (ApppleUSBHID). The freeze is BEFORE it boot the kernel i.e. when its reading the kexts properties: Read HFS+ file: .... (XXX bytes) Chameleon was booting fine yesterday, even injecting Nvidia string was working. Today for no reason it can't boot. My kexts in Extra are: FakeSMC AppleAHCIInjector ApplePS2 AppleRTC I also tried booting with bare minimum (FakeSMC) - freezes again. Tested versions: r1113, r1395, r752 - not working all of them freeze Older versions (RC3/RC4) can boot, but they are not compatible with Lion and the result is KP.

You can close (delete) the report it turned out that my partition was corrupted. However as a possible future request it can be handy if chameleon can tell us if there is something wrong.
