I converted an old integrated HP Bluetooth Module from a laptop to USB and it runs the mouse brilliantly!
I also have an old BTsomething USB adapter and even it works with it!

one thing i'm wondering about with this trackpad mouse: do you have to lift your finger up from the mouse surface before you click? because on  a real mouse in never do, my fingertips stay in contact all the time

No, it's not touch click, you have to push the whole "button" down! It's kinda like the old mouse but with a touch sensitive top!

Hi everyone, hope you all are doing well.

Please do not get shock if I tell you that I am still using 10.5.8 on HP nc6000 :)
In the process of searching for a bluetooth mouse for my iPad2, I bought a Magic Mouse and it works beautifully with my jailbroken iPad2 + BTStack Mouse.
Later I learned that this Magic Mouse is compatible with 10.5.8 as long as Wireless Mouse Software Update 1.0 (36.2MB) is installed, and which I did (many times).

However, I can only get the Magic Mouse fully working with this Leopard (10.5.8 + WMSU 1.0) after I logged in and ran the WMSU 1.0, after that I will Force Quit the WMSU 1.0 installer. As long as I do not power off the Leopard, the Magic Mouse works 100% and with tap-to-click (left and right) using MagicPrefs 1.9.2.

I have performed Permission Repair and also have used Pacifist to extract the WMSU 1.0's extensions files and performed Permission Repair many times, but no luck.

I also learned from many guides that I need to jot down the USB Bluetooth info in System Profiler to enter them (convert from hex to dec) as idProduct and idVendor into IOBluetoothFamily.kext -> Contents -> PlugIns -> BroadcomUSBBluetoothHCIController.kext -> Contents -> info.plist . However, doing so will cause my Leopard show "Bluetooth not available".

I do not clearly understand the following:

When using the working IOBluetoothFamily.kext (as attached), the System Profiler shows it as CSR (as attached), however I know that nc6000 is using Broadcom bluetooth module BCM2045NMD according to HP.com. However, the USB section shows it as ACTIONTEC, and I have converted its ids to dec; (idProduct:134, idVendor:1183)


I went and modified the IOBluetoothFamily.kext from the WMSU 1.0 but it will show the same error and I cannot use any bluetooth device.

I am very sure I missed some steps some where along the way, appreciate it if you can help me.

Thanks so much

Hi guys,

if you want a stock solution, without having to modify anything on the software AND want wake-on-click, try this:

Hi nathandw,

Thanks for the great guide. I have read thru the guide and it seems more relevant to (solder) install a bluetooth module into a laptop computer ( OSX86 ), it would be great if the guide will show me how to modify the IOBluetoothFamily.kext so that I do not need to install the WMSU 1.0 on my 10.5.8 everytime I log in.

Thanks,

I would like to provide some updates:
I have followed an instruction from another forum (sorry I did not jot down the URL) to make sure that there is no occurrence of (1)Microsoft Mouse ..., (2) Logitech Mouse .... or (3) USBOverdrive... exist in the S\L\E.
I happen to discover that if my 10.5.8 start up in Safe Mode (boot -x), its bluetooth and the Magic Mouse work perfectly.
I guess some kexts is conflicting with IOBluetoothFamily.kext or some other bluetooth related kext.

Appreciate it if someone can help me in solving this problem.

Thanks
