I have a AR9002WB-1NG wifi combo card(AR9285 + AR3011 (bluetooth))
From lsusb for BT
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0cf3:3005 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR3011 Bluetooth
I got the wifi working just with a plist edit:
for the bluetooth instead I'm confused… I've seen around two methods for this: Atheros Firmware Uploader or IOath3kfrmwr.kext
The first one (FW uploader) gives me a i5:ath3k-firmware-uploader tom$ ./ath3k-firmware-uploader
Atheros AR3011 not found error.
The second one is a bit cryptic.. I've added the device id in the plist converting it into decimal value.. but I don't get any kind of output in the Console or anywhere else.. is there a log somewhere to understand if this has been loaded or errors etc..?
This my edit for my device(ID 0cf3:3005):
PS Is there another method for BT? Suggestions? I'm running 10.8.2

it could also be the rev of the card.. not many have gotten it to work.. if any
as for the plsit edit. u can fake id 2A in dsdt and never have to edit the plist

I managed to have it works by turning on bluetooth using blueutil.

I managed to compile IOath3kfrmwr.kext from github and it works on my 10.6.8 HDD (1).
However, I have another 10.6.8 setup on another HDD (2) which reports the bluetooth is off and it cannot detect or detected by any other devices.
HDD (1) was a copy of HDD (2), it is the image of HDD (1) at one point in time, but not used/updated.
I did a diff of the 2 drives S/L/E and couldn't find any differences.
Any idea why HDD (2) reports bluetooth is off?
How to resolve my issue beside restoring HDD(1) to HDD(2) ?
