    first thing: sorry for my english, i'm from russia =)

    what we have: macbook (1.5 y.o.), leo 10.5.6
    what s the problem: after the fix, regular apple keyboard & logitech mouse + macbook's keyboard & touchpad not working, no way to install 10.5.6 combo update
    what i try: boot in safe mode, boot in single mode, fixing permissions (leo boot dvd > disk utility) - no answer from usb ports
    what we need: 1 flash drive (any capacity), 1 pc or mac (except not working mac), leopard install dvd, original file ( http://rapidshare.com/files/17681221....kext.zip.html ), 10.5.6 combo update ( http://www.apple.com/downloads/macos...mboupdate.html )

    1. copy file (IOUSBFamily.kext) to your flash drive (before downloading file, empty flash drive)
    make a folder structure on flash drive like this:

    System>Library>Extensions
    put in Extensions folder file "IOUSBFamily.kext"

    the way will look like this: FLASH_DRIVE_NAME/System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext

    capitalization is very important!!

    2. boot leo install dvd (hold "alt" button after power on), then go to "Utilities" > "Disk Utility"

    click on your macintosh hard disk and go to "Restore" section
    drag your flash drive and drop it in "Source" empty bar
    drag you mac hard drive and drop in "Destination" empty bar

    DO NOT MARK "Erase destination"!!!

    Then click on "Restore"
    wait
    quit Disk Utility

    3. go to "Utilities" > "Terminal" and type:
    chown -R root:wheel "/Volumes/NAME_OF_YOUR_MACINTOSH_HD/System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/"
    chroot "/Volumes/NAME_OF_YOUR_MACINTOSH_HD/"
    kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions

    capitalization is very important!!

    quit Terminal

    4. go back to Disk Utility
    in section "First Aid" click on "Repair Disk Permissions"
    wait
    quit Disk Utility

    5. restart your mac and hold "shift" button. mac os will boot in safe mode whit working usb ports

    6. install 10.5.6 combo update

    well done =)

    Default Get Keyboard and Mouse back after screwing with USB kernel extensions

    Before you begin:
    You need to know where the "Fix_DFU_10_5_6" Automater script placed your backed-up USB kernel extensions. If you ran the "Fix_DFU_10_5_6" script from the Desktop, there should be a directory called "Backup_IOUSBFamily_kext_10_5_6" also on the Desktop with the USB kernel extensions inside. If you can't remember where the backups are located on your drive or don't consider yourself competent enough to navigate your way to the backup copies using Terminal, use unkle's instructions instead.

    When reading the instructions below:
    ** Replace "[username]" with whatever your user directory is called (typically your login name).
    ** Replace "path/to/Backup_IOUSBFamily_kext_10_5_6" with the path to wherever your backup copies of the USB kernel extensions are located.
    ** As always, do a sanity check on my instructions before blindly following them. If you're uncertain, wait for someone with cred/rep to say this worked for them before doing this yourself. I'm not usually prone to typos, but it's bound to happen one day (maybe today is that day) .

    Here we go:

    1) Insert your Leopard install DVD and reboot while *holding* the 'C' key until the gray Apple logo startup screen with the spinning loop appears. Choose a language when prompted, but do not continue with the install.

    2) There's a menu bar at the top of the screen. Select the "Terminal" application.

    3) Use the "change directory" (cd) command to make the system extensions directory your current working directory using the syntax below:

    cd "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/System/Library/Extensions"

    4) Use the "copy" (cp) command to copy the 10.5.6 kernel extensions that were backed-up into your current working directory using the syntax below (note the use of quotes and the space before the final dot):

    cp -Rp "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/[username]/path/to/Backup_IOUSBFamily_kext_10_5_6/"*.kext .

    5) Change the user and group ownership of the kernel extensions to root and wheel respectively using the following syntax:

    chown -R root:wheel AppleUSBHub.kext
    chown -R root:wheel IOUSBCompositeDriver.kext

    6) Change your current working directory to one level above the Extensions directory and move the "Extensions.mkext" file to your Desktop using the syntax below:

    cd ..; mv Extensions.mkext "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/[username]/Desktop"

    You may notice the system immediately replace Extensions.mkext with a similarly named, zero-length file. Leave it alone.

    7) Type "exit" at the Terminal prompt and use the pull-down menu to Quit the Terminal application.
    8) Use the pull-down menus again to select the "Startup Disk" application and choose your normal startup disk (the one you've just been moving things around in above) and hit the "Restart" button.

    Let the system boot as it normally would. If all went well, you will have now regained keyboard and mouse functionality.

    Merry Christmas (Happy Holidays)

    @ unkle & jasonb_too

    great findings guys. I will try both today but they look good.

    I am still not sure why the Automator programm does not work in some cases cause it does in most. I have four Macs here (MacBook (2006, black); MacBook (2008, unibody), iMac 24" and Mac Pro) all using the patch without any glitch at 10.5.6.

    I guess what happened is that the process of rebuilding the cache got interrupted. If you dont leave the programm alone (up until rebooting) this might screw things up.
    Plus - as stated - the programm's folder has to sit on the Desktop of the Mac when running the programm. Not working properly when in any folder (loke "Downloads") or so.

    happy hacking and merry christmas to all of you,
    v.

    Here is my experience:

    I ran the Automator app from the Desktop, acknowledged the instructions message and was prompted for the admin passwd. I noticed that the text box (where I would put the passwd) already had something entered. I thought, "what's that about?" and I hit [Enter]; then the System prompted me again for the admin passwd. So I thought "ok, that was weird... whatever." and entered the passwd.

    I didn't know how long it was supposed to take, so I left my laptop running all night. I woke up the next morning expecting to find my laptop at the login screen (since it should have rebooted at some point overnight), but it was still just sitting there. Looking at Activity Monitor, I saw nothing going on. So I checked that the Automator app had moved the 10.5.5 USB kernel extensions into the right place, sudo'd the kextcache -k command on the system extensions directory, rebooted, ran Pwnage successfully, did some other things throughout the day which involved putting the system to sleep and waking it up a few times. Everything was fine.

    At the end of the day, I shut my laptop down. The next day I started it up, and no keyboard or mouse. Using the iPhone I searched the forums and found others with the same dilemma. I eventually rescued myself and then posted my method here.

    My laptop is a 2006 MacBook Pro with the the Apple development environment installed.

    Hope that helps! And thanks for all your help! I've learned a lot of cool info about the iPhone from this forum and your posts -- much appreciation.

    Big thanks to jasonb_too & volkspost for all your help.

    My late 2007 Macbook also had some sort of problem with the automator, I ran it yesterday and it started to run, asked for the password but like jasonb_too it had something already entered there, and then after that I don't know how far it got but it never asked to restart the computer, and I forgot about it among many other items I was working through. Unfortunately today when I did restart because of an unrelated issue I no longer had keyboard or mouse control, and the safe mode boot didn't provide keyboard or mouse either.

    So I also searched the forums on my iphone and found jasonb_too's instructions, quite tricky reading that from my iphone and typing it in to the terminal, but after the process my macbook worked fine! (I also couldn't find a way to download the 10.5.6 Combo from the Leopard DVD startup, so had to fall back on the Terminal method...if somebody knows a way to do that from DVD startup that would have perhaps been easier...)

    As for DFU mode and the iphone, I was never able to get around the 2001 error in iTunes, but I was able to jailbreak/unlock/activate my ver2.2 2G iPhone by using the QuickPwn2.2 on a Windows computer, which didn't get me all the results I needed, but it did flash the iPhone so that I could use PwnageTool2.2.1 for Mac without having to go into DFU mode. This may be obvious to some of you, but perhaps it can be useful to someone else who was in my situation.

    Thanks again to all for the help!

    Hi everyone ...i'm new here and new to the Mac world

    I had trouble with this ...the reboot message never showed up and a couple of hours later i shut it off. Now, when i tried to boot it again it gets to the account screen but with no function from keyboard, trackpad or bt mouse.

    I already tried booting into "safe" mode ([shift] key and "Safe Mode" message in red) but they are not working yet ...i can boot with the dvd and they work, however, the last thing i wanna try is erase and re-install everything ...i read here i can install a combo update from that point but how?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated ...cause like someone said before ...it's a pain writing this long in the iPhone.

    EDIT:
    Ok ...i tried jasonb_too's instructions also (thank you!) and with a little pain it worked ...so, i'll try the DFU enable fix later again and i hope i get it right this time. I guess i'll stay here

    That the box where to enter your admin password. It is needed cause copying and rebuilding the cache has to be done with admin privileges

    What is the problem, why would you want to restore?

    If you just want back to 10.5.6 clean, download the Combo Update here and run it.
