By ifabio, Few update to kernelPatcher (Credits to CrazyBirdy)
1- cparm : Added a workaroud for Xcode 4.4.x compatibility 504B030414030100630004731141000000007D0000008B00000003000B0062696E01990700020041450308001AED80DA50DF6080B0390FE095B3BC129E1FC27C104EC97897EF27CD1175766CB18C66FF42EFB7023911BDFD5E4BC9AEEC32FF3473963F70B255581D7B74DE9F
2- cparm : Fixed a buffer overflow in the plist loader
3- cparm : Ported the nvidia plist helper (less time to spend on the device id more time to code :-) )
4- 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)
5 , for now not added in the pkg script !!!
6
7- cparm : Ported the OS detection to the trunk, updated the default theme to v 1.1 (credit to blackosx)
8
9- Added AtiPorts option to GraphicsEnabler, so users can override the default number of ports. It proved
10 to be useful when used to limit the number of ports that a framebuffer registers, which seems to be a
11 requirement on laptops that can only use 2 ports at the same time.
12 Thanks to Akbar for testing and AniV also for the tip:
13 http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php/topic,1959.msg10402.html#msg10402
14- Added NVidia ION AHCI controllers dev id to AHCIPortInjector kext.
15 Forgot to mention source on the commit: http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php/topic,1170.0.html
16- Renamed com.apple.Boot.plist to org.chameleon.Boot.plist.
17- Added "ShowInfo" key (enabled by default for now), which enables/disables the display of
18 partition and resolution related info, on the Gui.

20- Modules can now be selected between not compiled, compiled into chameleon, or compiled as modules.
21- New makefile + configuration system.
22- Added the BOOT2_MAX_LENGTH constant in memory.h. This is now used in mboot.c to relocate the correct
23 number of bytes for boot2.
24- Added new ATi/AMD Graphics Card Enabler.
25- Added new SMBIOS patcher.
26Includes changes to "manufacter" keys, from SM*manufacter to SM*manufacturer.

30- Added Booter message Logging (":/boot-log" ioreg property)
31- Removed -x32 option, use arch=i386 instead
32- Added automatic SMBusspeed detection for lga1156 core i5/7 cpus
33- Added new iMac11,1 sbios default model for lga1156 core i5/17 mobos
34- md0 code. Notified xnu when an md ramdisk is specified
35- Added rollover image support for selected device icons.

39- Optimized memory detection speed
40- Added displaying source device and partition number for file read operations.
41- Increased boot2's maximum size from 383.5k to 447.5k.
42 Updated stage 1 loaders for handling the new size limit.
43- Added alternate format for setting the default partition. The user can specify the selected
44 volume UUID for the "Default Partition" key.
45- Implemented SPD memory automatic detection and injection,seems to work really great ...
46- Factorized code to prepare a dynamic memory detection algorithm ...
47- Optimized smbios table address search
48- Optimized cursor spinout in textmode if no verbose mode is set
49- Added ram table structures definitions
50- Added getSmbios() a param permitting to select between orig and new smbios entries
51- Changed "Default Partition" behavior to accept only native system volumes or foreign partitions.
52- Added NVIDIA new NVCAP customization support and support for ION gfx cards from aserebln
53- Added ATI new framebuffers support and new cards from PCEFI10.6
54- improved ACPI file search algo by implementing a cache.
55- Nvidia injection fix
56- pciroot would not always return correct UID in auto detection mode
57- Fixed the hibernation problem in boot2/resume.c
58- Fixed all new booter versions with SystemType would override the facp value even if correct,
59 now keeps the facp value if correct and no override has been done, implemented a best effort algo.
60 for maximizing the chance to get the most correct value before we decide to use a fixed value (1=desktop)
61- Fixed display cosmetics of UUID, now a convert.c file contains all
62 conversions api, to be completed by function that we should reuse.
63
64- Fixed SystemType would be always forced to a value, now optionally changed
65 only if overridden
66- Kept SystemID as the only option to change manually the system-id
67 For theses reasons, SystemId from bootConfig and SMUUID from smbiosConfig are now DEPRECATED.
68
69- Integrated JrCs fadt patch (kept for RC5 the existing DSDT.aml retry algo that disappeared in his patch,
70 should be more discussed for RC6)
71- Added JrCs modified convention name change to coding_standards
72- Now malloc (ex. MALLOC in Asere patch) is renamed malloc(size) and is an alias
73 to safe_malloc(size, file, line) with _FILE_ and _LINE_ preprocessor definitions
74- Added a new 'Rename Partition Feature', now permitting to rename partition
75 like 'System reserved' to a more meaningful name
76- Added SystemID option permitting to change the System UUID to a fixed value.
77- Added the PciRoot auto detection feature imported from pcefi10.5
78- Added automatic "system-id" injection from dmi bios, also compatible
79 with SystemID boot option and former SMUUID from smbios,plist
80- Added "system-type' automatic injection (1=Desktop) plus override possibility
81 with the new system-type option in bootConfig
82- Added SMserial and SMproductname new options for smbios.plist
83- Merged with asere patch, while keeping my fake_efi.c changes, and adding a new
84 stringForKey() API, also changed the DT__XXXX() set of functions
85 to handle const char * values instead of char*.
