Anyone got a working backlit Portable or PowerBook 100?

Hi all,

I am currently missing the Mitsubishi M50753 PMU program for the backlit Portable and PowerBook 100. I believe these two use the same PMU program, but if we can get both to make sure I certainly wouldn't turn that down. This is necessary to get ADB keyboard and mouse/trackball working for those models in MESS. I do have the versions of the program from the original no-backlight Portable, the PowerBook 140/145/170, and the PB 160/180/180c.

Extracting the program is very easy and requires no screwdrivers or soldering: you simply download the PMURom program from http://minivmac.sourceforge.net/extras/pmurom.html and run it, and it'll spit out the file.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, no portable here and I've been after a working pb100 forever. I've got a stack of dead pb100's from my quest, and not one works.

We did get it after bbraun was able to build a working PB100 from his stack of broken ones, but I wouldn't say no if you could run it on a backlit Portable just to check my assumptions :)
