FYI. Tried Chameleon RC5 752 Lion+Snow.pkg that came with a 10.8 Dev Pre USB ISO from piraxx Bxx. This boot loader boots 10.8 perfectly. But... The boot loader will only work from a USB restored ISO of 10.8 installer and there for have the mentioned Chameleon RC5 752 Lion+Snow.pkg onto the USB drive you then boot to the USB 10.8 and then select the drive that you installed 10.8 on and good to go. But if you try to install the Chameleon RC5 752 Lion+Snow.pkg boot loader on to the installed 10.8 drive you get a kernel panic when booting from said drive. I have tried to install all of the chameleon boot loader versions (19.8 supported) on a Hackintosh with 10.8 dev pre and got either a kernel panic or a reboot when boot screen tries to load. So the Chameleon RC5 752 Lion+Snow.pkg that came with the USB ISO of 10.8 must either have been modded to work with 10.8 or it just works because of the written code in the boot loader itself.
