Cloned "old" mac HD to aluminum MB= safe JB???
This may be a stupid question, but I need some advice. I want to JB to 2.2.1 (preserve baseband). I am currently JB 2.2. I just got an aluminum macbook (late `08 model). I cloned the HD from my old macbook, on which I successfully jailbroke my 3G. The cloned HD is now in my new macbook. I just read that the aluminum macbooks can't be used for JB yet, but do not know if that is a hardware or software issue. Because the HD is "old", is it safe to JB, or does the new aluminum body/guts mean I'm stuck?

yeah i second that, the new 'ally' macbooks have issues recognizing the iphone in DFU mode. Using a hub will work
. I had similar issues when i updated to 10.5.6, but theres a automator script you can download to solve it.
Some people had some success with the new macbooks, but do this at your own risk, theres lots of reports of problems with people loosing the functions of their keyboard/trackpads!!!

Looking back over various entries here and on other sites, I remembered something. I used the DFU enabler automater program on my old macbook when I updated to 10.5.6. My two questions are:
1) Will this (automater) work on the new aluminum macbook, or am I confusing the issue?
2) Am I understanding correctly that if I simply use a USB 2.0 hub between my iphone 3g and my aluminum macbook, that I will then be able to JB as normal?
