Install newer media keyboard on an older Macbook Pro
Authored by: bebuki on Aug 20, '10 06:54:48AM

My product id is 560 and I can find that section in the file but what section do I replace with the string from the 560 section?

I have an older macbook pro that I replaced the top case from a newer model but used the old keyboard. Now the function keys are mapped to the newer keyboard mappings which don't match what the function keys say.

Please help!

Thanks!

I would get yourself a free trial copy of BBedit and use search function to find 560.
The hint explains that you change the FnFunctionUsageMap "string" about 14 lines up from the Product ID.

Here is the string from 0x021b = 539 which is UK keyboard.
[code]
<key>FnFunctionUsageMap</key>
<string>0x0007003a,0x00ff0005,0x0007003b,0x00ff0004,0x0007003c,0x000c00e2,0x0007003d,0x000c00ea,0x0007003e,0x000c00e9,0x0007003f,0x00070083,0x00070040,0x00ff0006,0x00070041,0x00ff0007,0x00070042,0x00ff0009,0x00070043,0x00ff0008</string>
[/code]
