Below new patch from dokterdok:
Non Clover guys:
Here below is a refreshed patch that allows 3rd party Bluetooth 4.0 LE devices to work with Continuity, now on OS X 10.10.2 beta as well as the previous versions.Filename: IOBluetoothFamily
Find: 48 85 C0 74 5C 0F B7 48
Replace: 41 BE 0F 00 00 00 EB 59
A few notes:
- You don't need to apply my previous Handoff binary patch to make this one work
- You need Broadcom Wi-Fi hardware that runs with the Brcm4360 kext
- The patch skips internal compatibility checks, and therefore might incorrectly flag Bluetooth 1/2/3 hardware as Continuity compatible (Handoff / Instant Hotspot)
- After the patch is applied and your system rebooted, log out and log in iCloud on OS X. It can take a few minutes for your iOS device and system to do the Continuity handshake.
# Patch IOBluetoothFamily for Instant Hotspot / Hand-off
sudo perl -i.bak -pe 's|\x8B\x87\x8C\x01\x00\x00|\xB8\x0F\x00\x00\x00\x90|sg' /System/Library/Extensions/IOBluetoothFamily.kext/Contents/MacOS/IOBluetoothFamily
Edit. It does work for some USB and Wi-fi/BT4 combo cards.
You must add kext-dev-mode=1 to boot and sign out from your ICloud, after reboot sign in.
Confirmed devices working with correct smbios:
BCM94352 /AzureWave AW-CE123H combo card (this card is the one working the best with this patch)
Orico BTA-402 USB BT Adapter firmware 8891 (confirmed on macbook pro smbios and BCM4322 but Hotspot unreliable )
USB devices with 20702A3 chip but only with Broadcom 943xx Wi-Fi and mainly on MacBook smbios
BCM20702 Internal cards based on 20702A3 firm.v14 c4096 confirmed to work
I just got Orico BTA-402 and it doesn't work for me on MacPro 3.1 smbios and Atheros 9280. Conclusion is that your smbios probably should be white listed for handoff and perhaps you also need Broadcom Airdrop compatible Wi-Fi card
It seems that people using MacBook Pro smbios got lucky with this patch
White list argument is invalid, handoff works even on Mac Pro 3,1 with corect Wi-Fi/BT4 card
If you got it working please post name of your device, chipset and firmware from System Report and please state what smbios you using (e.g. MacPro 6.1) and your Wi-Fi card.
