Can someone PLEASE help me??

I finally bought an ASUS BT21, I can connect & pair my Magic Mouse, but the pointer is often slow 8bad batteries?)
and I don't have the gesture options, like scrolling or swiping.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I did not change the IOblutooth.kext


Please, is there nobody who can help me with this?

I know broadcom based bluetooth chips allow for BIOS bluetooth recognition upon boot for certain models. My BT usb adapter for instance allows me to use my bt keyboard in the BIOS once I wake the keyboard while the computer is POSTing.

What is your bluetooth model ? Would like to purchase one as yours.

After waiting 4 months to find (so hard) a producer for the newer Broadcom chipset 920702 which is mounted in the newer macbook/iphone4/ipad3
and is the newer BT 4.0 Dual mode (less watt, more power)

(and considering that the mini pcie wifi+Bt4.0 in the ebay market is unusable for a hack because it has 4313 chipset..

finally..
I find an USB dongle!!

it is German seller Ebay.. the item is called DELOCK usb 4.0

so.. simply fixing the usual kexts... to match dev id and vendor and subclass.. It run!!!

I've soldered it in my Asus G53

You have any pics of it? I'm not really finding it on eBay nor is Google rendering any search results relating to it.

I'll give you attachment link..

the ebay item is:
220993925414
and I assure that the chipset is 20720 broadcom

so the plist mods are really simple.. as usual in the IOBluetoothFamily

With this dongle, can you turn the Bluetooth ON / OFF through the menubar bluetooth icon?
And do you know if it works at the BIOS and Chameleon Boot Screen?
I think I'll buy one for my apple weireless keyboard.

sometines not. i never ha this need.. but after your post.. I see that sometimes it's hard to turn off BT.
I have to kill bled service manuall if I want to obtain that.

I found that amazon sells anoher one bt4.0.. I suppose that asap the newer broadcm chipset will become a standard.. my suggestion for you is to wait for another one or two months..

bye

I'm using 2 computers.
Evga x58 with asus dongle and Asus p5k with targus.
On p5k, with bluetooth wake option greyed out, I can wake my pc with apple wireless keyboard both Lion or Mountain Lion dp3 with update.
And after restart it keeps working.
On Evga x58, Lion 10.7.4 where wake option greyed out, I can't wake my pc,and also after restart keyboard does'nt work until os starts.
And if I want to choose hard disk on boot menu, I have to remove dongle and put it back again or have to plug out my pc and plug in again.
but mountain lion dp3 with update where wake option is available and I can wake my pc, and after restart I can use keyboard to choose hard disks.
On evga I don't have perfect dsdt. so when I shut down my pc , power led is still on. and also usb relate codes in dsdt are different between those two boards.
I think if you have good dsdt fix on your pc then even without bluetooth wake option, you can wake your pc with wireless keyboard or mouse.

I bought that v4.0 DeLock from that Ebay seller ... I made the edits in Kext ... really works 100% ... but ... every time I start the system, it shows me over 70 (!!) bluetooth devices in the system preferences panel, JESUS!!! ... with this, the bluetooth menu bar is slow and my wireless keyboard keeps crashing ... I had to stop using this dongle ...
