I never had to do anything with the bluetooth kexts to get working bluetooth. My adapter vendor id and device id are in the kext by default. It's in the 10.9 bluetooth kext too. Bluetooth icon appears in system preferences, but I just can't disable it, I push the button and nothing happens. And also it can't find any bluetooth device. Is this a bug in the kext? My device is in the kext by default so I don't get why it's not working. I tried to use 10.8 kext and everything works fine. So something wrong with the 10.9 bluetooth kext. Is anyone else have similar problem?

 

The button not working and the indicator spins forever, and no device appears.

Same issue here. However i can see my devices, but im unable to connect / pair. And it's stuck in ON. Working fine in 10.8, with wireless trackpad / keyboard. Could you tell me what .kext u used from the 10.8 partition for your 10.9 DP1 install?

Only things i tried yet to get it going was doing some resets with the "bluetooth explorer" utility.

I'm using the IOBluetoothFamily.kext from 10.8.4. I just replaced it. I hope I won't have to do this in final...

Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2C and a bluetooth adapter made by Trust   Vendor ID: 0xa5  Product ID: 0x2101.  I have the same strange connectivity issues. Bluetooth seems to be on but no device is detected. Any ideas?

Bluetooth has the same issue in Maverick dp1, I think it is not working on purpose.... cause maybe Bluetooth 5.0 on the door (u never know)

I have the same issue, I can see all my devices including iphone 5, magic mouse, etc....

You can use the ML IOBluetoothFamily kext and it will work fine. It works for me. I hope this is just a bug and will be fixed in later builds.

Hi Nyolc8.I'm using IOBluetoothFamily.kext version 4.0.7 at the moment. With this version I at least can see the bluetooth icon.If I use version 4.2.0 the Bluetooth icon disappears. What version are you using?

Same issue here! I tried 3 different USB dongles with different chips, so I wonder if its a USB controller issue. Tried swapping IOBluetoothFamily kext with one from 10.8.3 but doesn't change anything. I'll grab the kext from 10.8.4 tomorrow at work and post again. Good luck!

Weird! I swapped my kext with 4.1.4 from ML using #####, but after several reboots my system profiler still reports "Apple Bluetooth Software Version: 4.2 beta" and the problem remains.

Is IOBluetoothFamily kext the only ingredient here? Or am I missing something??

I reinstalled by making my own vanilla USB installer (not myhack) which got rid of my bluetooth problem. The stock 10.9 DP1 kexts are working fine now.

I always make my installer without any tool, so I did mine without anything, and I've got this problem... so... I think it's caused by something else...

With 10.8.4 kext, it's working, and I can turn it off/on, but I would prefer to use the original kext like I did before on ML... But it looks like this will ends now... :(
