Can I replace my keyboard with a backlit one?
Can I replace the keyboard or do any Mod to make my keyboard backlit?
PS. My MacBook is black
No, the only backlight MacBook was the short-lived unibody, between the core 2 duo and unibody there are a TON of changes, parts aren't just interchangeable like that. The placement of keyboard ribbon alone I think puts it out of the question.
I found a "guide" of some sorts on Flickr where a guy took a MacBook Air keyboard and put the back light parts into his MacBook. I would give it a difficulty level of incredibly hard, but I just bough my own MBA top case, so I will find out for myself.
I will post pictures if I succeed in this. I'm going to also see if I can put the multiPod Touch track pad in too. : )
Sadly no, I ended up shorting the computer out while trying to find power and tapping into the Firewire port. Luckily the machine sustained no damage, but my hopes and dreams did. Also I found out the hard way that the plastic that transfers light is fragile and it broke. There goes $40 down the drain.
I'm a tech and yes it can. You'll need to replace the modular electronic assembly that connects the trackpad and keyboard as well as the non existent backlight film with the parts from the later model. I'll cost about $100
