    I have had the same problem after reinstalling osx multiple times. Voodoops2 also shows "ApplePS2SynapticsTouchpad not found"

    my experience thus far. i have not finnished my install yet cause i do not have wifi yet and i did all the installation at a friends house and once i got to the last part of your guide were you would install system updates via internet i stopped there and decided to finish at home. i did not install your ethernet fix yet and i have yet to install those updates. however i do have a wifi usb drive that i bought a long time ago for whatever reason. its a netgear WG111v3 found the driver for it online and installed it. osx does recognize it but when i tried to connect to my network i forgot my pass key for my network. i have it written down somewhere on my pc but my power supply went kabloie today so i dont have access to it right now. so i cannot comfirm that this actually works. ill post my results later to help some folks out.

    another thing is the sleep function but i think i read on here how to fix that and will post later if it worked.

    another problem i have is that when i click on my mac the screen goes blue and than asked me to log in as if i have rebooted the system. i see some pics on here of some folks showing that they got ideneb working and showing there my mac window and i was wondering why does my system goes blank and (as far as i know) reboot? and does installing the system updates in your last step fix that? i know its not a big thing and its not going to kill me if it doesnt work. but i was just wondering if this is normal, are others having this problem,and is there a fix for this?

    also there is no track pad config (or whatever you call) in preferences. i click keyboard and mouse but i only get to config the keyboard and not the track pad. i would like to slow the cursor down just a little.



    @cannontrane: i was just wondering if you swapped out your wifi chip in order to get wifi to work? just like our man wingzero swapped the atheros for a brodcomm? if so, did you use the brodcomm like wingzero? or did you use another chioset? if so, what?
    Hey, I'm glad you are making progress. I haven't swapped out the chip just yet (so no wifi at the moment or bluetooth) - I'll post my guide for you, cause it may help!

    This is the one I ordered, but haven't received it yet: Apple Airport Extreme Wifi Mini PCI-E Card 802.11n - eBay (item 220446598982 end time Aug-01-09 08:46:30 PDT)

    Default GUIDE - Boot132 OSX 10.5.7 on Toshiba NB205 with Chameleon 2.0 RC1

    Single Boot OSX 10.5.7 on Toshiba NB205 with Chameleon 2.0 RC1 Bootloader
    Guide by CannonTrane

    **NOTE** This guide should also work well for Retail DVD install. Only thing that changes is a manual install of Chameleon.**

    **DISCLAIMER** ATTEMPT AT YOUR OWN RISK. FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY **

    Big thanks to wingzero619 for making his guide on installing iDeneb 1.3 - without him, this would not be possible. Also thanks goes to everyone involved in creating BOOT132 & the iDeneb install method, as well as anyone responsible for the links at the end of this guide.

    What you need:
    1- NB205-SlimBuild-Preboot.iso http://www.mediafire.com/file/t2omkt...ld-Preboot.iso
    2- Blank CD
    3- iDeneb v1.5 on DVD
    4- Toshiba NB205 (mine is a NB205-N310/BN)
    5- If you want Wifi, you have to replace the mini pci card

    Begin:
    -------
    Ensure you are plugged in for power.

    0) BIOS Settings
    ----------------
    Disable USB Sleep & Charge
    Set SATA Controller to Compatibility mode
    Turn on Legacy USB

    1) Booting to iDeneb 1.5
    -------------------------
    Burn NB205-SlimBuild-Preboot.iso to CD
    Insert CD into USB CD/DVD Drive connected to NB205
    Press F12 to select boot to CD, press enter
    Wait for Init.img to load
    Press F8
    Press Esc
    Switch CD out with iDeneb 1.5 DVD
    Press enter (or type 9f then press enter)
    Press F8
    Type "-v -f" and press enter
    Watch and wait (or grab some coffee!)

    2) iDeneb 1.5 Setup (in all 1024x600x32 Glory!)
    ------------------------------------------------
    Once setup is up and running, launch a Terminal Window and type the following:
    Code:
    sudo -s
    diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk0
    exit
    Close Terminal
    Open Disk Utility
    Clik on your Hard Drive then click the Partition tab
    Partition the Hard Drive with one partition and make it use GUID (under Options)
    Name the partition.
    Mine looks like this:
    Code:
    GUID || OSX 149.05GB ||
    Apply the Partition
    Close Disk Utility and continue with setup
    Select your new Mac OS Partition and click Continue
    Click Customize
    Set the following Customizations:
    Code:
    Fix
     Firewire Remove
     VoodooBattery Manager
     VoodooPower with GeneralCPUMControl
     VoodooUSBEHCI
    Kernel
     9.7.0 Vanilla
    Chipset
     ICHX Fixed
    Wireless
     BroadcomWifi
    Video
     Intel GMA950
    Since Chameleon is a default setting, we do not have to select a bootloader. Technically, you don't have to select the Vanilla kernel either.

    Click Install
    OPTIONAL: Click Skip (to cancel verification of install media)
    Wait for the installer to finish.
    Click Restart

    3) Booting up to OSX
    --------------------
    Boot up like normal from the hard drive. You should see the Chameleon 2.0 Bootloader screen and the computer should boot up fine to the fresh install. Now it's time to install the remaining Kexts to Chameleon to gain full functionality.

    For this, we will need to go into the Terminal

    Make sure the Boot CD is on the Drive before doing this.

    Type:
    Code:
    sudo -s
    ENTER YOUR PASSWORD THEN PRESS ENTER
    mkdir /Volumes/EFI
    mount_hfs /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFI
    cp -f -R -p -v /Volumes/ToshNB205Boot1/Extensions /Volumes/EFI/Extra
    rm /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions.mkext
    umount -f /Volumes/EFI
    rm -rf /Volumes/EFI
    exit
    Reboot!
    Make sure you boot from the hard drive. If everything went ok, you should load into OSX without issues.

    You can also go back into the BIOS and Turn Off Legacy USB

    WORKS:
    --------
    Video Works
    Dual Monitors Works
    WebCam works, but not in Photo Booth (ok in iChat and Webclient of Gmail)
    Ethernet Works
    Audio Works, headphone automatic sensing does not. To switch between the built-in speakers & headphones, use the Settings in OSX to select the output device.
    Microphone works.
    TimeMachine Works.
    Touchpad Works.
    Sleep works. (As long as you made the BIOS settings changes for Legacy USB and Sleep & Charge)
    All USB Ports work.
    SD Card reader works.
    Battery meter works.

    DOESN'T WORK:
    -------------
    Wifi does not work because the NB205's Atheros AR9285 chip is not yet compatible with OSX.
    Bluetooth does not work.

    Default 2GB Ram upgrade

    can confirm there is a nice speed increase with system running much more fresh when I took old 1GB chip replaced with 2GB.

    @cannontrane Great work mate! Nice post. With your method see if what the Video Mirroring is like -- as yet I can get it to work.

    As for sleep/wake, the laptop wakes immediately after sleeping as someone else mentioned. Still tracking it down...
    Try my guide in the thread for Boot 132. It's probably a kext that you are missing, or that you are missing the dependencies for.

    Hi,

    Cannontrane, I am attempting to use your install method but the file that you posted that needs to be downloaded, I cannot download it as it says the limit has been reached. Is there any way I can get it?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    This is my first post. I'm ready to turn my Toshiba NB205 into a hackbook since I'm able to borrow an external DVD drive from a friend.

    My only question is: will being a Japanese model affect this process in anyway, particularly regarding the keyboard?

    Thanks.

    Use OSX86 Tools to install this Kext.

    VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext.zip

    It may be different than the one you are using right now.
