Possible Bluetooth Mighty Mouse solution
Authored by: robg on May 07, '07 08:27:05AM
The following was submitted as a new tip by an anonymous contributor; I haven't test it, so if you do, please comment on whether or not it works...


I read the article about how to enable Front Row and did this on my Mac Pro. But some people on MacRumors couldn't get it running, as they had a Bluetooth Mighty Mouse. So I decided to go searching and try to fix this problem.

Well I have done some searching in my system, and I think I might know what to do for the wireless mighty mouses. However, I can't test it in any way. So this is provided as is!

Drill down to system » library » extensions » IOBluetoothHIDDriver.kext » contents » info.plist, then go to IOkitpersonalities. Now in both the IOAppleBluetoothHIDDriver and in the IOBluetoothHIDDriver, make a child object item and call it HIDRemoteControl. Make it Boolean and make it true. And remember to do this in both the IOBluetoothHIDDriver and IOAppleBluetoothHIDDriver files. Save it and set permissions back (well, remember to change them in the first place so you can edit the file).
