Hi All,

I am trying to set the boot screen resolution in Mavericks and running into issues.

I've tried adding:
Code:
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>2560x1440x32</string> /* I have a cinema display */
to org.chameleon.Boot.plist but any changes I make cause my build to go into an infinite boot loop and the only fix is to copy my backup to my main drive. I had this setup properly on my Mountain Lion build but it's been so long since I set it up, I can't remember how I got it working.

Any help would be appreciated!

That's odd, works for me.

theme.plist

<key>screen_width</key>
<string>1920</string>
<key>screen_height</key>
<string>1200</string>

For whatever reason, changing these values does not affect the boot screen resolution. It still shows up in a different aspect ratio and pixelated. That's why I was assuming I needed to change the graphics mode in org.chameleon.Boot.plist but that causes the boot loop issue I mentioned earlier.

This seems to set the resolution for the chameleon bootloader, but then the resolution for the actual apple boot screen switches back unless you manually enter in "Graphics Mode"=1920x1200x32. It's only for a few seconds until the login screen pops up, but still a little bothersome.

How do we fix this?
