Question Booting into Safe Mode for BT Mod on 10v looses keyboard? - 04-05-2012, 05:25 AM

I'm trying to boot into Safe Mode on my Mini 10v running 10.6.7 to apply the Bluetooth Terminal Mod as listed in this thread:

Bluetooth Terminal Mod working on 10.6.5

But I've booted into Safe Mode several times now, only to loose keyboard & trackpad clicking functionality - I can't even log in - cursor responds to the trackpad, but I can't get any keystrokes to register in the login fields, or even click on the shutdown/reboot buttons below.

Everything else works a treat, but I'd like to be able to turn bluetooth on & off, so if anyone has any suggestions on how else I might accomplish the mod, or suggestions on how to get my keyboard functioning in Safe Mode, I'd be much obliged.

I've repaired permissions via Disk Utility and re-run NetBookInstaller...351
