    I'm new to this forum so I apologize in advance if I am not posting this in the correct section.

    Here is my problem,

    I have a black macbook 2.4 GHz intel core 2 duo 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    running mac os x 10.5.6.

    I tried to plug in my jump drive to transfer some files and a new at&t wireless connect card because where I live there is only dial-up internet. both times I received the kernel panic screen. I have tried to find the panic logs but I cannot find them. I went to library/logs/ and couldn't find them. Any suggestions as to what I might do would be helpful.

    p.s. it works when I plug my iphone in so I don't think its the usb ports themselves.

    Thanks,

    Evan

    Let me guess that you installed the 10.5.6 dfu fix from here? If you do, you need to reinstall the 10.5.6 files back to fix it. The same thing happened to me.

    Did you jailbreak your iPhone, or have you downloaded and run a script that purports to enable jailbreaking of the iPhone under MacOS 10.5.6?

    Yea. I ran quickpwn but first I think i had to do something to the firmware because I already ahd 10.5.6. which prevented me from jailbreaking it.

    click on my link. and if you sign up for a free "developers" account on apple.com, the blog provides you with the link to download the 10.5.6 install file, to restore the file to the 10.5.6 version instead of the 10.5.5.
