dear alls, i find a solution for that threat ,i can boot without that msg! i can describe what i made as follow: 1- restart your pc 2- press f8 while booting 3- you will find mac try booting and a boot: prompt in thier 4- you will find a phrase hd(x,y) for my pc it was hd(0,2) 5- so what does it mean? it mean your hard disk in slot 0 and your root part ion is in 2 order 6-so only you do to write the following cl in the boot rd=disk0s2 then enter rational, you will replace 0 and 2 as it will be shown in your booting thanks

This worked for me without issue. Now, OSX starts to boot but then stops at the grey screen with the spinning disc. The disc just spins and spins. I don't get any errors using -v, so I'm not sure what to check next. I've never used OSX before.

OMG! After spending a lot of time over spring break on this, your solution worked! I was ready to give up after a seemingly endless search on Google for an answer. THANK YOU!!!

Carlos, i guess U gotta find some other thread to fix that.. Seems like you are bumping into Compound problems. I Guess you could wait for the latest - leo4all v6 to be released..

ok the iphone is grate and so if cant not say they are givnig a lot of support and updates to your phone ..if they never made the iphone the phones of today would be a lot worse. because the iphone stared phones off to a new era!!!!apple shouldn't keep stopping the jailbreaks tho i do see why they wouldn't want jail-breaking to happen!!!what they need to do is find out why people jailbreak and update there firmware so that there would be no point in jail-breaking!!!! or join with cydia rather than fight it and make a contract with it!!!! simple!and dont worry there will be an untethered jailbreak coming soon .
