some news. i tested in another similar unit (ZOTAC EN 1060) the same card. on this one i have windows.

 

i could check the reading of bt card in the properties and it is the good bt device.

i then searched work from https://github.com/syscl/XPS9350-macOSand got the clover patch and the 2 brcm kext without full success.

 

now bt is recognized a 20703 in both bluetooth and usb sections of sysprofiler.

i’m going to try mess with the antenna as this card has 3 connecors vs 2 antennas in my Central unit.

 

Success, the antena order was different than what i read somewhere, bt is J1 not j2

 

Now i have to try replicate this on the EN1070

Ha, it would have be useful to know not all card's antennas were connected!

yes, sorry. i assumed information i got about antennas were good enough. it has worked with the 1060 unit, but still nothing on the 1070 unit... so maybe not only antennas.

Just recently, both wifi and BT don't reload after wake from sleep.  Using FakePCIID.kext with FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext for wifi and BrcmFirmwareData.kext with BrcmPatchRAM2.kext for BT.  Running Clover version 4200 but it started when I was running 4189.  No recent changes to my DSDT.  Any ideas?

BrcmFirmwareData.kext with BrcmPatchRAM2.kext for BT. 

Not correct, see Post #1

  1. BT injection

 

 

I fixed my problem by booting into Windows.  After that, wifi and BT reloaded properly after wake from sleep in macOS.  I will try out the BT injector.  The Github explanation makes the injector sound like the least-preferred option.  The method I used was a more-preferred option.  Still, it's an opportunity to try out a new method.  Thanks for pointing it out.

Hi !

 

So I'm actually the guy behind the Zotac en1070K (Kaby Lake) with the BT issue and the DW1830 card.

 

I'm back from home now so I'm going to look at some things around this.

 

Thanks @lilins and @Hervé for the help so far. I'll let you know how that goes.

at least on the zotac en1060 version (skylake) everything is working now. so we don't understand why his 1070k (kabylake) shouldn't have some shortcomings:

 

the BT from 1830 not working - (this is for this thread)

 

the mac os reboots when idling. not when used - (this for other thread)

 

we created the clover profile based on mine, we only removed special dsdt for HDMI/DP audio and changed the smbios to imac with kabylake (i based mine on imac 17.1)

 

i'm eager to make cross test with him, because normally, except the processor difference, the mlb is same with same components, a slight difference in efi versions maybe.

So we tried again on the en1070k from the en1060 setup changing smios to imac 18,2

 

-BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext from https://github.com/syscl/XPS9350-macOS in Clover/kext/others folder: Not working

 

-BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext in /Library/Extentions folder: working

 

-BrcmPatchRAM2.kext  in CLOVER and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext in /Library/Extentions folder: working inverse not working

 

so it seems that on the en1070k that the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext can't work when launched from CLOVER.

 

Has anyone seen this before, is there a workaround?

 

i'd prefer a clean clover only kext folder.

 

Thanks for your help

-BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext

BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext can only be installed S/L/E. BrcmFirmwareData.kext can installed in EFI

See Post #1/BCM BT

Use the developer link for the correct, current files.

Is 10.13 unsupported at the moment?

 

I've put BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareData.kext into clover/kexts and the result is boot-up takes a lot longer (like 5 minutes) and keyboard and mouse do not respond (but it does communicate over the network)

 

Edit: Got it I think by using the "injection" method.  As mfnesq says the mixed messages are very confusing!  Really appreciate the work it's just that the communication being so curt can be a little tricky to follow.

 

I had to download one of the binaries from 2015 to get my hands on the elusive BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext and combined this with a current BrcmNonPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext (show contents, find info.plist, change IOProviderClass from disabled_IOResources to IOResources) and bluetooth has now appeared...

 

 

 

EDIT 2: My situation is obviously different.  I had vt-d enabled in the bios after a reset one time -- disabling this stopped the issue where BrcmPatchRAM2 went into some kind of infinite wait loop.  Bluetooth is working for me now and did not need the old injector method.  Handoff took some doing but it turned out that the DSDT I created in the 10.10 days was faulty - there was a FakeID for the combo card somehow implemented in there that worked for 10.10 but caused problems in 10.13.  Removing it but having FakePCIID and FakePCIID-BroadcomWifi in S/L/E finally gave me Handoff = Yes.

HMB includes BT, HMS does not.
