  3. Hi.
    Thanks for all this GREAT work Where can i download myHack_Installer_1.0_RC4.1_r55.mpkg ??¿
    I cant find it anywhere…

    • MRSFL: Download the latest version. You will find links on the downloads page ;)

  4. Oh I see … Anyway thanks for considering it … As for Kexts I got the updated KextUtility for SL x64 and it has worked fine thus far ..

    But I would take the advice of a pro over my own any day thanks ;)

  5. Thanks mate, can you send me my modified theme by you ? Would like to see what you have done to it, if it’s no trouble ?

    Also what tool would you recommend I use for installing Kexts ? Would like to know what you experts use or recommend ;)

    Will fix my post on my site to link to download page instead of direct link to file now … Sorry for that ;)

    Ch33rs !

    • Steve: I didn’t modify your theme, there is nothing from your theme in the current theme… I have the zip file with the theme you made (untouched) that you sent me but thats it…

      For installing kexts, I use a terminal or finder. cp or drag & drop kext to /E/E or /S/L/E then I run pfix. That is all that you need to do.


  6. Finally I fixed it, and it’s back to its usual self thanks to your pfix guide … Booted in command prompt only and did things …

    That was a close call !

    BTW I noticed u didn’t use the theme I created for Chameleon … Instead u created your own … I respect that but what wasn’t good about mine ?

    Thanks again !

    • Steve: I did like your theme but I received feedback from people that they prefer a darker more minimal theme – seems the majority of people don’t like too much color… No offense intended I did really appreciate the effort!

      I am really glad to hear you worked things out! “Know Thy Terminal” lol… Also a good lesson to point out here is the importance of not using things like “Kextutility” or “Mkextutility” or other similar iSuck-ware. Learn how to do things the right way! ;)
