Attempted Bluetooth Terminal mod... now 10v won't boot up! - 08-27-2009, 12:39 AM
Alright, I need some help guys...
I, being stupid, ran the script melkort made from page one from this thread: http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/gene...nal-mod-9.html on my Dell Mini 10v with 10.5.8. It said it worked and reboot to see changes. Upon reboot, it hangs at the Apple logo and spinny thing.
I've tried turning off Bluetooth in the BIOS and well as legacy support, even trying to boot into safemode, but no matter what I do it hangs on the Apple logo and the spinny thing. Help!
After I tried safemode, I tried verbose mode at it hanged on some error that said voodoo.hda had invalid sound settings, so using single-user mode and "nano" at the command line I deleted voodoo.hda from my system. On top of that, I also removed the installed file from the /Extra/Dell9Ext/bluetooth_patcher.sh also using nano. After that I ran a kext refresh, and it still didn't work!
Now, upon verbose mode, it hangs when its telling me about my internet, it says something like "Starting Up" when its refering to the internet, but it never goes anywhere, wired or wireless.
I have some very VERY important files on my machine and even though I do have backups they are old and I would really really prefer not to gave to reinstall and loose those files. Please help!
Get yourself a real MacBook with Lockerz! I got invites! PM me.

The easiest thing I can suggest is to undo the "bluetooth terminal mod" ? Who knows, maybe you have a defective bluetooth device ?
or try creating a Ubuntu bootable memory stick. Once you are able to boot up with Ubuntu, you will have to install the application that allows you to read the apple file system (read this: http://groups.google.com/group/cwelu...f26179daf5d076 )
then copy the files you need to the memory stick.
