New bootloader for Lion and before made by cparm and me

This is a new bootloader for Lion and older that has all the functionality possible with a modular system.
Put the modules in /Extra/Modules in order to enable them to load.
I use only the ones that I really need.
This can also boot Lion DP1 in 32bit only mode.
It's still beta and I noticed on my Atom it sometimes gets stuck at boot, rebooting always did the trick... boots very fast... (fastest I've seen yet)

Download (binaries, Update: Beta2):

It has the new ACPICodec ACPI loader (which can load virtually any ACPI table) and also for exotic i5 and i9 cpus I've added support in the kernelpatcher (they spoof the family and model to Nehalem).

For the sources contact cparm for his branch and apply the following diff:

Yeah... you can customize boot the way you want it with the options you want (this is one of the reasons it is so fast).
It is only the beginning though... we're allready working on a new version that will exceed even this one .
For the moment this is the best bootloader with the most features for any OS X version yet.

Thank you!

Wow that's a advanced bootloader!!

Can you give us some more info pls? which modules are necessary to boot (with a core i7 socket 1156 processor)
How can we enable P and C-states?

EDIT: What does the ACPIMini, HelloWorld, KextPatcher, Resolution & Symbols modules exactly?

Symbols module is needed absolutely but other than that you can use the modules you need.
Personally I use the SMBIOSPatcher, ACPIPatcher, Resolution, GUI, USB, etc... modules.
Only the essentials.
Hello world isn't required ofcourse
You can enable P and C states with a boot flag (isn't stored in my brain so I'll have to look it up )
ACPIMini is only DSDT patching (not needed if you use ACPIPatcher).
Helloworld is a little example of how a module can be written (not needed).
KextPatcher is used to patch modules like AppleIntelGMA950 etc....
Resolution auto detects the best boot resolution for Intel, NVidia and ATI cards.
Symbols is the collection of all modules (which is required if you use modules).
