I could not find a more satisfactory answer but on t*macs website, stating the chimera installer simply renames the com.apple.boot.plist to the newer standard. There are many documents on the old plist and the options, just not for 2.1 series. I went ahead and did this as the depreciated warnings were bothering me and would not go away unless I pressed a key a few times. I have noted that however there is an issue here, at least with simply copy and rename file. The structure is a little different and it does not quite understand my custom flags or does not support it. A guide on the new chameleon boot plist would be much appreciated.
I noticed my system panicked after the simple rename. So i restarted and typed in the flags I know by heart for my system. I am running on a AMD Phenom II x4 955 be, Asus M4N82 Deluxe board, NON RAID (using the reincarnated 980a chip set) on 10.6.7, I do have a modded DSDT, which someone helped me with. . Opened the plist in chameleon wizard a nifty new program i found a link to on this site somewhere (many thanks!).
Hopefully someone who knows more can help here. Using Chameleon 2.1 rev1508. The new chameleon assumed that my flags -v arch=i386 -force64 pmversion=23 was to be mapped or whatnot as arch=x86_64. I have never got this flag to work ever, as the arch=i386 -force64 worked and flawless. Last night I went to open VLC and it error-ed, stating that the app was not supported on this platform and looking at the icon it had a circle with a slash over it. So I just downloaded a 32bit as there was no longer an option to check run 32bit only, but a Rosetta option had appeared. The other plus is that my WindowShade X works correctly now as well as voodoo hda now lets me use my optical out (not a big deal). I have tried using plist editor to add the -force64 and it just ignores it as I cannot run many 64bit apps. Either I am doing something wrong / unsupported (more likely) or there is a bug, if It is please pass it along.
I am forced to go back to the depreciated but 64-bit working boot plist and deal with the press any key until someone can help. I do appreciate all the time and consideration in anyone helping me in advance and again thank you!
