I just installed the latest version of Chameleon, "2.1 svn 1463" on a fresh install 10.6.3 updated to 10.6.8, and I need to know how to remove it.
It didn't place a preference pain in system preferences so I can't change anything about it boots up.
Thanks in advance for any info.

You can change bootparameters manually, that's the power of Chameleon! But I recommend using Champlist for editing the options of it, as it is quite user-friendly.

Is there anybody who knows how to remove Chameleon completely? No mods, just remove!

Chameleon and ChamPlist both work fine for me since introduction or since I learned about. I do use Chameleon boot loader on different hard drives with success. However I do own one hard drive on which I can't update Chameleon for some unknown reasons. It sticks on =regae= v2.0-RC5 r1162 whatever I do. Also I can't activate a graphical interface although it is confirmed in the org...plist file. Every time I boot the process ends up in showing the list of hard drives and I have to proceed manually in pressing enter. Anybody who experienced similar behavior or does know a solution to get rid of this?

You need to reinstall chameleon on the disk to fix this issue...

Try using this app > Chameleon Wizard - Downloads - Kexts.com

If don`t works, try replacing only the "boot" file that is hidden at the root of your disk, to do that, download the package that you want and take a look here to know how to get only the "boot" file from the package > http://www.kexts.com...s-pacifist.html

To remove Chameleon, you need to made the repartition of your drive...

Of course I tried to reinstall Chameleon - but everything sticks as it was. The boot file was also replaced w/o success.
Anybody with an idea how to solve it without deleting my partitions?

If you told that you already replaced the "boot" file and stay at the same version, this means that you have probably your
Chameleon on the EFI partition (if you have a GPT disk) or something really wrong with your partition scheme....

Run "diskutil list" on a terminal window and place the output here...

/dev/disk2
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *2.0 TB disk2
1: EFI 209.7 MB disk2s1
2: Apple_HFS sl 2.0 TB disk2s2

I tried also changing the amount of disks and removed all others – without success. Mounting the EFI partition showed no files in it - even if I show the hidden ones. I guess there must be an entry in the mbr?

Try formatting you EFI partition with the command below...

sudo diskutil eraseVolume "HFS+" "EFI" /dev/disk2s1

CAREFULL: Check if the EFI partition is really disk2s1
