    Holy frick! My unibody MacBook Pro just recognized my iPhone in DFU mode.

    Here's what I did

    Copied AppleUSBHub.kext and IOUSBCompositeDriver.kext from an unibody MBP with Mac OS X 10.5.5 to /System/Library/Extensions/
    Chowned -R both files to root:wheel
    Chmoded both files to 755
    Rebuild the kext cache
    Touch /System/Library/Extensions/
    Force reboot my mac (sudo reboot)

    If someone's interested in getting the kexts from the unibody MBP with 10.5.5 you can get them here: http://ifile.it/mq14k9e

    There is also a tool in the first post to automatically fix DFU on older macs running 10.5.6 so you dont have to get dirty.

    I wish I could even update to 10.5.6, apple's crappy installer hangs at configuring setup!

    Thats because its a partial download. Redownload the update and try again. Make sure its the combo update.
