Switching to Chameleon...

Recommended Posts

Alright. Was able to get past my previous roadblock. I had misread an entry as being a -1 when it was supposed to be -l.

At this step:

sudo cp -r ~/Desktop/Extra /Volumes/THUMBDRIVE

Nothing really happens for me. Am I supposed to see the new folder created in my thumbdrive? Can I not just drag and drop into the thumbdrive window?

I tried typing this without the space between the a /Volumes. No change.

When I click on my thumbdrive it has my previous Extra folder, now called, old. I also dragged my new Extra Folder with the Extensions folder onto the thumbdrive. Opening that reveals the folder called Extensions but there is no RealTec kext in this folder. I still have my Extensions.Mkext as well.

I'm trying..... Truly appreciate any help.

Yes, this command copies the Extra folder to your thumbdrive, but you need to replace THUMBDRIVE with your USB-Stick's drive label. (For me the command would look like this: sudo cp -r ~/Desktop/Extra /Volumes/BootMe)

That should do the trick aswell

The space between .../Extra and /Volumes... is a seperator. (source_file and target_file)

When I click on my thumbdrive it has my previous Extra folder, now called, old. I also dragged my new Extra Folder with the Extensions folder onto the thumbdrive. Opening that reveals the folder called Extensions but there is no RealTec kext in this folder. I still have my Extensions.Mkext as well.

Did you copy that kext into the Extra/Extensions folder currently located on your Desktop? I am just wondering because you mentioned that it wasn't there after drag & drop.
