    I have this particular problem: On one of my computers, the "A" and "Q" keys are not working, so I can't type applejack in single user mode. Is there another way to start the program; This Mac is too old to have it's keyboard replaced. I already tried to change the "applejack.sh" script to "upplejuck.sh" from a root account, but the command is not understood. Do I have to rename other files as well?

    If you've renamed the script from applejack.sh to upplejuck.sh in /var/root/Library/Scripts, then you can do this.

    1. Restart into single user mode.
    2. Instead of simply typing applejack, type
      /var/root/Library/Scripts/upplejuck.sh

    Alternatively, instead of renaming the script itself, you could change the alias that is created in /var/root/.profile.

    change the line 'alias applejack=/var/root..... etc' to be 'alias upplejuck=/var/root....'
    (or change it to whatever you want), ssssss if you prefer.
