myFix 2.1

There has been this persistent thorn in my side since some other not so tech savvy people out there started releasing their own Chameleon installers and unlucky users attempted to use them – Boot sector corruption from incorrect installation of boot0.

The issue is not one that is immediately apparent, it is only when you attempt a normal manual installation of chameleon or installation of chameleon using myHack that the problem reveals itself and the system fails to boot.

I attempted to resolve the issue in myHack 2.0 RC2, and while the fix worked for some people, the issue has proven to be a continued problem for others, and the fix itself apparently causes problems for a few other users that use unique installation schema’s as well.

I have revised the method used to ‘Flush’ the boot sector and repair the corruption in this release of myFix. It is my hope that this will solve the problem once and for all, otherwise more extreme measures may be required.

Changelog:

  • Revised chameleon installation – using new method to repair damaged boot sectors
  • Clean up temp files after running tests during chameleon install
Make sure to read the release page for myFix 2.0 if you have not done so already, for a complete list of changes, contents and features.
