Chameleon Svn Source Tree


1- Bungo : Added getRTCdatetime() Int 1Ah function 02h - RTC service
2- Zenith432 : Use caching with ExFat filesystem
3- Zenith432 : Add turning off USB legacy for XHCI (XHCILegacyOff)
4- Zenith432 : saio_types.h, biosfn.c - minor typo in bios-defined data structure that isn't actually used.
5fake_efi.c - eliminate redundant scan of bt(0,0) in setupSmbiosConfigFile. loadConfigFile already does a fall-back scan of bt(0,0), so another scan isn't needed.
6sys.c - While scanning a volume, getOSVersion looks for 5 files and switches back-n-forth between hd(X,Y)/....SystemVersion.plist on the newly scanned volume and bt(0,0)/hd(X,Y)/...SystemVersion.plist - which is an invalid path - should always return an error.
7- Zenith432 : Change to disk.c - Prevent getOSVersion from looking for SystemVersion.plist on FAT32 or exFAT file systems - since those filesystems never serve as system volumes.
8UFS may serve as system volume, but there's no driver to read from it.
9Change to sys.c - Eliminate a dubious recursion in diskScanBootVolumes(). It recognises the filesystem, then calls getOSVersion, which attempts to open 5 files in order to find SystemVersion - then when parsing the device name - calls diskScanBootVolumes() - as a form of on-demand scanning. This doesn't result in an infinite recursion - because the volume is already in the map. However, this auto-scan is only useful if user enters an explicit hd(X,Y) device-spec that has never been scanned before - an unlikely occurrence.
10- Zenith432 : Patch from Issue 388, init_module_system() in modules.c dereferences NULL pointer
11- Zenith432 : Full implementation of exfat support for Chameleon's boot2 stage.

139 Part of her work will now live on in the Chameleon source code.
140 Changes: code cleaned, improvements taken from Revoboot.
142- Apply patch by Andrey B
143- cparm : Added a Sata module, known as YellowIconFixer in my branch, useful to fix yellow icon issue (can also fix an issue with the apple's dvd player application in moutain lion)
144- cparm : Ported the nvidia plist helper (less time to spend on the device id more time to code :-) )
145- Added Recovery Icon for Default Theme (TODO) (credits to blackosx).
146- Merge more cparm's (security, stability, bugs fixes) improvements from his branch.
148- Merge "Restart fix Removed" from trunk r1992 by Slice's patch

155- Added ID for Radeon HD5570 and some subID:
156- Merge cparm's (security, stability, bugs fixes) improvements from his branch.
157- Added ID and correct FB for:
158- Added next coming CHIPSET and ID definition (Mosts of it commented) ML?
159 (found via
160- Added boot support for Mountain Lion 10.8 (credits to ErmaC) & updated the default theme (credits to blackosx)
161- cparm : Fixed naming convention for raid hfs devices in gui
162- Added support for using UUIDs with ext2 filesystems (credits to bitz):

164- cparm : Ported the OS detection to the trunk, updated the default theme to v 1.1 (credit to blackosx)
165- Merge correction for "Invalid package length algorithm in aml_generator.c" (credits to rphilipson)
167- Added scorpius's patch (to get an unstretched boot screen for nVidia cards on DVI) in boot0.s,
168 disabled by default:,2158.0.html
169- Added exFAT volume label support (FAT64) support (credit to dmazar):
171- disableIRQs()
172 Port of original patch by: CPARM (who basically did this in boot.c) Thanks!
173 The ACPI specification dictates that the 8259 (PC-AT compatible) vectors
174 must be disabled (that is, masked) when enabling the ACPI APIC operation
175 but this isn't done (apparently) on all mobo's and thus we do that here.
176- Added AtiPorts option to GraphicsEnabler, so users can override the default number of ports. It proved
177 to be useful when used to limit the number of ports that a framebuffer registers, which seems to be a
178 requirement on laptops that can only use 2 ports at the same time.
179 Thanks to Akbar for testing and AniV also for the tip:
181- Added NVidia ION AHCI controllers dev id to AHCIPortInjector kext.
182 Forgot to mention source on the commit:,1170.0.html
183- Renamed to org.chameleon.Boot.plist.
184- Added "ShowInfo" key (enabled by default for now), which enables/disables the display of
185 partition and resolution related info, on the Gui.
186 This info may not play well with some custom themes.
187- Modules can now be selected between not compiled, compiled into chameleon, or compiled as modules.
188- New makefile + configuration system.
189- Added the BOOT2_MAX_LENGTH constant in memory.h. This is now used in mboot.c to relocate the correct
190 number of bytes for boot2.
191- Added new ATi/AMD Graphics Card Enabler.
192- Added new SMBIOS patcher.
193Includes changes to "manufacter" keys, from SM*manufacter to SM*manufacturer.
194- Added module system.
195- Added automatic P-States & C-States generation for native power management.
196- Added Booter Log Dump Tool
197- Added Booter message Logging (":/boot-log" ioreg property)
198- Removed -x32 option, use arch=i386 instead
199- Added automatic SMBusspeed detection for lga1156 core i5/7 cpus
200- Added new iMac11,1 sbios default model for lga1156 core i5/17 mobos
201- md0 code. Notified xnu when an md ramdisk is specified
202- Added rollover image support for selected device icons.
203 Use device_<type>_o.png in theme folder. Credits goes to Blackosx.
204- Revisited theme resource embedding. Using the device_<type> icons are optional with
205 the exception of device_generic.
206- Optimized memory detection speed
207- Added displaying source device and partition number for file read operations.
208- Increased boot2's maximum size from 383.5k to 447.5k.
209 Updated stage 1 loaders for handling the new size limit.
210- Added alternate format for setting the default partition. The user can specify the selected
211 volume UUID for the "Default Partition" key.
212- Implemented SPD memory automatic detection and injection,seems to work really great ...
213- Factorized code to prepare a dynamic memory detection algorithm ...
214- Optimized smbios table address search
215- Optimized cursor spinout in textmode if no verbose mode is set
216- Added ram table structures definitions
217- Added getSmbios() a param permitting to select between orig and new smbios entries
218- Changed "Default Partition" behavior to accept only native system volumes or foreign partitions.
219- Added NVIDIA new NVCAP customization support and support for ION gfx cards from aserebln
220- Added ATI new framebuffers support and new cards from PCEFI10.6
221- improved ACPI file search algo by implementing a cache.
222- Nvidia injection fix
223- pciroot would not always return correct UID in auto detection mode
224- Fixed the hibernation problem in boot2/resume.c
225- Fixed all new booter versions with SystemType would override the facp value even if correct,
226 now keeps the facp value if correct and no override has been done, implemented a best effort algo.
227 for maximizing the chance to get the most correct value before we decide to use a fixed value (1=desktop)
228- Fixed display cosmetics of UUID, now a convert.c file contains all
229 conversions api, to be completed by function that we should reuse.
231- Fixed SystemType would be always forced to a value, now optionally changed
232 only if overridden
233- Kept SystemID as the only option to change manually the system-id
234 For theses reasons, SystemId from bootConfig and SMUUID from smbiosConfig are now DEPRECATED.
236- Integrated JrCs fadt patch (kept for RC5 the existing DSDT.aml retry algo that disappeared in his patch,
237 should be more discussed for RC6)
238- Added JrCs modified convention name change to coding_standards
239- Now malloc (ex. MALLOC in Asere patch) is renamed malloc(size) and is an alias
240 to safe_malloc(size, file, line) with _FILE_ and _LINE_ preprocessor definitions
241- Added a new 'Rename Partition Feature', now permitting to rename partition
242 like 'System reserved' to a more meaningful name
243- Added SystemID option permitting to change the System UUID to a fixed value.
244- Added the PciRoot auto detection feature imported from pcefi10.5
245- Added automatic "system-id" injection from dmi bios, also compatible
246 with SystemID boot option and former SMUUID from smbios,plist
247- Added "system-type' automatic injection (1=Desktop) plus override possibility
248 with the new system-type option in bootConfig
249- Added SMserial and SMproductname new options for smbios.plist
250- Merged with asere patch, while keeping my fake_efi.c changes, and adding a new
251 stringForKey() API, also changed the DT__XXXX() set of functions
252 to handle const char * values instead of char*.
