These are the tools to extract the iSight firmware. Once you've built and installed isight-firmware tools, use ift-extract to grab the firmware from the Apple driver and put it in /lib/firmware.
Note: You must be logged in as root to do this!
On my MacBook running Mavericks, the command is:
ift-extract -a /macdrive/System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBVideoSupport.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleUSBVideoSupport
Once that's done, you should have the file:
If so, reboot and you're in business. (I'm not sure you hafta reboot, but it can't hurt!)
For other MacOS versions, just mount your Mac HFS+ partition something like:
mount /dev/sda2 /macdrive
(Note: For this, the directory /macdrive must exist!)
To locate the Mac partition, use: fdisk -l /dev/sda . . . the MacOS partition should look something like:
/dev/sda2 409640 724306927 361948644 af HFS / HFS+
Once the Mac OS partition is mounted, you can locate the Apple iSight driver using: find /macdrive -iname AppleUSBVideoSupport
Yet another note: I'm using the huge kernel, which has the HFS filesystem driver. I don't know if it's included with the generic kernels or not.
