This is new bootloader with few nice features, it’s n0w based on Chameleon codebase.
so, it supports all what Chameleon supports ( including /Extra)
and it has few new patches applied:
1) dsdt overwrite patch from mackerintel
2) resume from hibernate(aka deep sleep) support from me
(-nowake boot option to bypass resume, if u dont want it on current boot)
3) 64-bit kernel loading support from me ( -x64 boot option to tell it to boot 64-bit kernel (only snow leo kernel has 64-bit part)
4) it supports new Extension.mkext location as in new snow leo
Now few words about hibernate, to activate it u can use e.g. this widget – deepsleep.free.fr
Bootloader will check /var/vm/sleepimage, and if it has proper signature, it will try to resume system
Now about problems, some systems fails to go to deepsleep state(e.g. gigabyte, asus), it’s caused by RTC bug in dsdt
to fix it – use fassl’s dsdt patcher, it will create proper dsdt.aml, rename it to DSDT.aml and put it in root of your partition
Find it here – http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=133683
Also on radeon hd cards, after waking up from deepsleep, you will have only 1/4 of screen visible.
Bootloader – Bootloader
Improved messages about problems in sleepimage and will not try to resume with encrypted sleepimage(uncheck “use secure virtaual memory” in system preferences to fix it)
You also can use this bootloader with chameleon’s boot0/boot1h just fine.
as for source patch – as soon as I will clean it.
notice – if pc goes to regular sleep instead of deep sleep, and rtc dsdt fix didnt help – then probably deep sleep will not work on ur machine.
