Chameleon Bootloader Comments

Where to download Chameleon

Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about Chameleon Bootloader Mar 2012

The homepage for Chameleon is a joke. The downloads section hasn't been updated in 2 years. And even if you go to Chameleon's developer page (which is very hard to find in Google, by the way), you'll only be able to download the source.

To download a .pkg installer for the most recent release of Chameleon, you'll have to go to Kexts.com. Be sure to download the "trunk" version, unless you're looking for a specific branch of Chameleon.

Or, instead of using Chameleon, install Chimera, a branch of Chameleon by tonymacx86.
