  1. I have probably found a somewhat solution to our problems. I replaced the IO80211Family.kext with the one from Yosemite and deleted the following from the Library/Preferences/System Configuration: com.apple.airport.preferences.plist com.apple.network.identification.plist NetworkInterfaces.plist preferences.plist After a restart AirDrop started working again, though at very slow speeds. Hoping that someone finds a proper fix for this
  2. I have noticed that whenever I try to send/receive something with airdrop, there is a repeating error in console: airportd[64]: SecTaskLoadEntitlements failed error=22. This happened after I tried a "solution" which involved deleting my contact from the contacts app, as well as unlinking my Apple ID from the users menu in system preferences.
  3. Try using -gux_defer_usb2 kernel flag in clover.
  4. VirusX, I never had any sleep wakeup issues with the dongle, and I have it plugged in in a USB 3 port (if it hepls somehow). Maybe you can fix it by going to energy saver and disabling "Wake for network access"? Although you would lose wake on LAN too.
  5. QUAK3, Handoff is not enabled because you use an Atheros based wifi card. You need a Broadcom based wifi ac card. Search for BCM94360CD on ebay, it usually costs ~40$ including the PCI-e adapter.
  6. Wake on Wireless not working

    Allan, thanks for the read but it doesn't seem to fix my problem. My Hack goes to sleep ok and wakes when i hit a stroke on keyboard/click mouse. Any other solutions that you can think of? Should my Energy Saver settings include "wake for wifi network access" or is wifi supposedly included in "wake for network access"? Allan, I did some digging and found out that wake on wireless only works if you have a Bonjour Sleep Proxy in your network, which means having an airport express/extreme/time capsule or an apple tv connected to your network. Thanks for your time and help.

    This is what I get: hibernatemode 0
  8. Wake on Wireless not working

    I don't know if anyone else is experiencing this, but I can't seem to wake my Hack from wireless. I have a BCM94360CD WiFi card connected through PCI which works perfect and although system report recognizes it as Airport Extreme and Wake on Wireless shows as supported, when my Hack goes to sleep I can't wake it through WiFi. I used a number of apps to try and wake it including Fing but to no result. Maybe it has to do with some BIOS settings or clover power states but I am not sure. My mobo is a GA-Z87X-UD5H and my cpu is an i7-4770k. Hope somebody can help.
  9. VirusX, I still use the combo card's wifi in conjunction with the bt dongle and it works great. So, yes it's possible. I am not sure about the wired connection though and I can't test it, but I searched some fora and people said that handoff worked fine through ethernet too. About the patching, I downloaded Continuity Activation Tool which supposedly has support for the Gmyle bt dongle but it didn't find it when I installed it. I had also kept the clover patch enabled, so I am not sure which of the two did the trick. You don't need to check anything with the seller, just order it from the link I sent you. About the wake from bluetooth I am not sure because I don't have a bt keyboard/trackpad connected. If I can find it somewhere in the system info I'll check back with you in the afternoon.
  10. VirusX, I personally gave up trying to make my combo card's bluetooth work and ended up bying this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261598557927?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT which was delivered to me today and I have to tell you it works flawlessly! So, I think you should do the same.
  11. VirusX, let's try a few things: 1. Clear your CMOS and try a different usb port for your bt card (or unplug/plug the cable) in your motherboard. See if Windows registers your bt and make sure it works right. Mine was auto installed by Windows as a Generic Bluetooth Device (it works fine btw) 2. Boot into OSX and install BTFirmwareUploader.kext in System/Library/Extensions. (use Kext Wizard app, it's free and very easy to use). Repair permissions/rebuild cache. 3. After that sign out of iCloud, even from Mac App store, facetime, imessage etc. 4. Go into Library/Preferences and delete com.apple.Bluetooth.plist 5. Reboot and sign in to iCloud. See if Handoff works. You don't need to pair your iPhone to your Hack to get Handoff working. I don't know your type of motherboard so I can't say for sure if it supports ErP (or if you need it as I did). Also, don't forget to use the latest clover patch in post 1
  12. Hey VirusX, i got some good news! I finally somewhat understood what's going on with Handoff. It looks like every time I shutdown, some ID or something is lost and Handoff refuses to start the next time I boot. So I disabled ERP in BIOS and now Handoff works as advertised and better. But, my seagate USB drive won't stop spinning because the motherboard keeps giving power to all connected USB ports, including my bt. If anybody can think of something about it please let me know.
  13. No, unfortunately I haven't found out what stops handoff in 10.10.2 but seem to have a problem in 10.10 too. Handoff works but when I shut down and boot again (not restart) handoff is lost. Although, I checked my console and saw that it keeps starting/stopping handoff advertising but my iPad can't see it or handoff anything to it. The only solution is to sign out/in from my devices and it starts working again. Hope somebody has a solution to that.
  14. Well, I came to the conclusion that Handoff only works in 10.10 (not 10.10.2). You need to install this kext for your Bluetooth to be recognized. Try installing it with kext wizard and repair permissions/rebuild cache afterwards. Hope I helped. BTFirmwareUploader.kext.zip
  15. I tried all of the above steps but it seems nothing is working. I have entered my product and vendor id in IOBluetoothFamily.kext so that my bluetooth is recognised by the OS and entered the latest patch in Clover so that the Handoff option is enabled in System Preferences->General. After that, if I sign into iCloud from my hack and my iPad all is working fine, but something seems to go wrong when I shut down and boot up again. Everything keeps working if I just restart though. It seems some certificate/authorization is lost when I shut down my hack. I tried the continuity activation tool too but with no success. In my config.plist I have everything OK including UUID (tried different but no success), ROM and LMB from my old iMac (iMessage/FaceTime working perfectly). I can't figure out what's wrong. Any help/ideas welcome. P.S. My wifi+bt card is a BCM94360CD but my bluetooth controller is a BCM20702A0 with Broadcom as vendor.Maybe the problem lies somewhere there, BUT I know it can be done as it works if I sign out of iCloud from both my devices, restart them and sign into iCloud again.
