Hardware, Embedded Systems When Psystar announced it Rebel EFI package, the company was quickly accused of simply taking open source code, repackaging it, and selling it for USD 50. While selling open source code is not a problem, not making the source code available if the license demands it is. Netkas, famous OSX86 hacker, and a Russian site are now claiming they have found the smoking gun.

Just in case nobody noticed: there is one comment in blog:
Just a small correction, you said something about osxlinuz being a modified isolinux, it's a modified boot-132

I think we have a lot of evidence that Psystar used stolen software from OSX86 community.

So Rebel EFI is basically just boot-132 + Chameleon + some kexts from OSX86 community + an app which downloads drivers for you.
