Since I encypted my system disk with FileVault 2, my MacBook Air (late 2010) has thrown almost a dozen Kernel Panics on the EFI screen (although only four are recorded in System Diagnostic Reports).  The dump from the last episode is included below.


I have noticed that a kernel panic has NOT occurred even once when I enter my password using the Air's in-built trackpad and keyboard.  However, if I as much as move the mouse half an inch or type a letter on the external keyboard (both Apple Bluetooth devices) the panic seems more than likely to occur.  I hope that this is useful - any thoughts would be appreciated.  Thank you.

    Did you try removing the FileVault 2 option?

    Try removing that BlackBerry/RIM USB driver and seeing whether it stops the kernel panics.

    Yeah, check in /Library/LaunchDaemons and /Library/LaunchAgents to make sure there's not any cruft left in there from the RIM software as well.  Keep us posted on how things go.  Out of date USB drivers can certainly cause kernel panics.
