hey i just added a backlight sheet to my macbook aluminum 2.0Ghz it is done very easily. i purchased it off of ebay for $25.00, the item number is (220714814758) it should still be there....

the process is very simple, as long as you can follow instructions and apply. just to be clear you DO NOT have to replace the whole upper case....or even the keyboard for that matter....unless you want the logo on the f5 and f6 keys, like the MBP.....the original keyboard from the macbook 2.0 will work just fine...by default the macbook will recognize the f5 key to dim the backlight and f6 to make it brighter as soon as you install the backlight sheet.

the connector for the backlight is the small black one to the left of the ram, you can not miss it.... there should be no ribbon cable attached to it....since you don't have the backlight...

that connector should be there in all of the MacBooks 2.0 unibody if it isn't  for whatever reasons then your simply out of luck...

follow the guide via the link:

[guide|792]

note: you do not have to remove the LCD, HD, battery connector etc, just remove the components that will allow you to lift off the logic-board.

once the logic board is off then it is as simple and removing the black film from the bottom of the keyboard which is applied with some mild adhesive at the edges... **there will also be a clear film right under the black one, you do not have to remove that one.

now just place the backlight sheet in and re-secure the adhesive at the edges and put everything back together.... when you start up your MB the backlight will automatically be recognized....

hopefully all of your questions are answered....

ENJOY!
