  1. Hi there can someone please compile AirportBrcmFixup.kext and other Broadcom kexts for macOS Catalina
  2. Hi,I will be using ASUS ROG STRIX B360-I GAMING (mini-ITX) for my new build, and I'm trying to figure out the best solution for WiFi & Bluetooth. I understand that it should be possible to replace the WiFi/BT card that comes with the motherboard, but I'm confused about with what kind of card exactly. What connector will I need to be using? There are cards with miniPCI, M.2, some solutions require adapters, ...Is there a card I can simply swap in?Thank you
  3. Catalina seems to be a read only kext system so modifying kexts to make older hardware work doesn't seem to be possible at this point. However we have had success using Mojave kexts to get hardware to function. For bluetooth on Broadcom WiFi cards using injectorkext and adding the Mojave bluetooth kexts to System/Library/Extensions folder seems to have solved the connectability issue. Install Mojave kexts and use kext utility to repair permissions and caches before reboot. The Zip contains the Catalina original kexts as a backup in case you want to revert. Bluetooth kexts fix.zip For Atheros WiFi we are using Mojave modified with High Sierra kexts. Install in System/Library/Extensions folder and use kext utility to repair.
  4. Hi, I want to install MacOS Catalina on my laptop. I was installed MacOS Mojave previously but i had a lot of problem, for example my wifi's card (Dell DW1820A) had a problem: My pc sometimes doesn't boot up or pc after some minutes crashed or slowed. Now i want to try again to install macOS. this is my spec: HP 15-AY034NL CPU: i7 6500U with HD520 SSD: 500GB SSD Samsung Wifi & Bluetooth: Dell DW1820A (Bluetooth: BCM2045A0) (Wifi: BCM94350ZAE) USB 3.0 Ethernet: Realtek 8100 Attached in this thread, my old clover configuration created by me (CLOVER OLD) and clover with Wifi driver (CLOVER) created by Hervè (I had asked help at insanelymac's community) P.S SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH. Thanks in advance -ANTONIO CLOVER OLD.zip CLOVER.zip
  5. Hello. I have system unit Dell Vostro 3267 (i5-6400, Skylake). Information in signature. In this system block module installed Atheros AR9565 802.11 b/g/n Wireless Network Adapter, which, as I understand it, combines Wi-Fi - Atheros AR9565 and Bluetooth Qualcomm QCA9565. I managed to get working Wifi with kext from chunnann. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312045-atheros-wireless-driver-os-x-101112-for-unsupported-cards/?page=17&tab=comments#comment-2509900 https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/328426-qualcomm-atheros-ar9565-wireless-for-os-x-108-1014/ Bluetooth works only if you first boot into Windows and then reboot into macOS from it. At the same time, you need to install drivers for bluetooth in Windows from the official Dell website, because the original drivers that Windows downloaded and installed itself - did not allow the bluetooth module to work even in Windows. In bluetooth settings, the power button was inactive and there was an eternal search for devices (if macOS was loaded immediately after the PC started). Enable button disable I cured just by adding the folder /kexts/Other kext BrcmBluetoothInjector by writing inside it in the Info.the plist file corresponds to the VendorID and ProductID of my bluetooth (which are displayed in the system report). BrcmBluetoothInjector_Mod.kext.zip I am disappointed that Windows is able to automatically download the firmware to the bluetooth module during the download, and Hackintosh macOS has not yet done such a kext. In the search for solutions to the problem I came across here are the options for the text: IOath3kfrmw (OS-X-Atheros-3k-Firmware) https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-atheros-3k-firmware/downloads/ https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Atheros-3k-Firmware OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM https://github.com/the-darkvoid/BrcmPatchRAM https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-brcmpatchram/downloads/ https://bitbucket.org/anonymous_writer/os-x-brcmpatchram-catalina/downloads/ https://github.com/headkaze/OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM BTFirmwareUploader (as I understand it, this is an improved IOath3kfrmwr) https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/2925-bluetooth-firmware-uploader/ And here's a way - to use a virtual machine to the OS from it to download the firmware to the bluetooth module https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/10127-updated-nov-2017-fix-btfirmwareuploader-in-macos-high-sierra/ Unfortunately, not one of these options did not help me to ensure that bluetooth worked when "cold" start the PC in macOS. 1. I started to read more about kexts. In texte BrcmPatchRAM says that it is possible to add support for their bluetooth module in this kext. I downloaded the drivers for my bluetooth from the official site and extracted from .exe installer driver files themselves (This is easily done using 7-zip in Windows or using Keka in macOS). There were more files .dfu than others. As I found out .dfu files are compiled firmware files that the driver loads into the bluetooth module. In the instructions to BrcmPatchRAM States only .hex firmware files for Broadcom. I started looking for information on the Internet and found out that .hex files are the original "text" of the firmware as well .dfu is compiled .hex files. I immediately started looking for converters/decompilers/disassemblers from .in dfu .hex, but found only what's out .hex does .dfu file: https://github.com/pjsg/hex2dfu https://github.com/plietar/dfuse-tool https://github.com/kuro68k/ihex2dfu https://github.com/vpelletier/python-dfu As well as console utilities "dfu-tool" and "dfu-util" in Linux. I found out that dfu-util can be installed in macOS using Homebrew or use this option (it differs in functionality) https://github.com/the-darkvoid/dfu-util-osx 2. I also learned that .dfu files are used in macOS /System/Library/Extensions/IOBluetoothFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOBluetoothUSBDFU.kext/Contents/Resources I think we should try to replace all of them on that file that Windows loads the bluetooth module (I think if you try to do so, you need to make several copies of this file and rename it to the original ones .dfu files to be deleted). 3. As is the idea is just mine .dfu file rename to file .zhx and add it to the kext OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM (in BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext). But there is a problem - first, I don't know which one .dfu files are downloaded to my bluetooth, maybe even a few, because there are 3 files > 40 KB IN size and a lot of files ~ 2 KB in size. 4. In "dfu-tool" and "dfu-util" I saw commands that extract firmware from the device. Maybe it will be possible to boot into Linux and if bluetooth starts working there, then try to extract the firmware from bluetooth with these utilities, and then add this firmware to kexts somehow. 5. In the file BTFirmwareUploader.kex/Contents/MacOS/BTFirmwareUploader inside already have a list of firmwares, but they are in .hex format. Maybe there's a way to replace them with the contents .dfu file? I will continue to describe the ideas and results of the experiments. If you have any ideas or you can help to solve this problem, do not hesitate to write. Screenshots: Links to download drivers:

    Broadcom BCM94350ZAE on Mojave

    Hi, I bought a Dell DW1820A based on BCM94350ZAEI can't install kext for this chipset on my hackintoshCan anyone help me?Thanks in advace P.S Sorry for my bad English CLOVER.zip
  7. I have the WiFi/Bluetooth chipset BCM943602CS and a Magic Keyboard, the Bluetooth module is connected to an internal USB port and I set the type to 255 (internal) in a custom SSDT. My Hackintosh is sleeping fine with darkwake set without any value in Clover Configurator. Only Problem is that it won't wake from sleep on key presses. I already tested this USB port with a normal keyboard and the result was that it wakes up my Hackintosh on key presses. The tiny LED on the WiFi/Bluetooth card also shines while sleeping. And in system settings the Bluetooth wake option is enabled, too. Has someone an idea where the problem could be or which additional settings I have to verify? Thank you all

  10. I bought the new Magic Trackpad 2 (far too expensive, but that's another topic) and cannot get more than simple move the pointer around the screen functionality on it. I have checked to make sure it works on another real Mac I have. I have 10.11.1 on an MSI Z77MA-G45. I have a custom DSDT with some USB fixes (still not getting USB 3.0 speeds however). I have installed in S/L/E: BrcmPatchRAM2.kext + BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext.

  11. hi I was wondering if anyone have some ideas on how to fix the bluetooth, card reader, camera and battery status icon. I know they can be fixed as they still work in Mac OS X ML. Also, i was wondering if anyone know how to check if all the cpu cores is run at the right speed? My computer spec Model: HP Pavilion dv6-2155ee CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-540M Processor (3M Cache, 2.53 GHz) RAM: 4GB DDR3 GFX card: GeForce GT 230M, 1GB PCI-E Sound: IDT 92HD75B3 @ Intel Ibex Peak PCH - High Definition Audio Controller [111D-7603] Ethernet: Realtek RTL8168D/8111D PCI-E Gigabit [10EC-8168] Wireless: Broadcom 43224AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n [14E4-4353]

  13. I have an Intel NUC i7 RYH running as a Macbook Pro 12,1 via clover. Originally installed El Cap, and everything worked fine except the unsupported wifi/bluetooth embedded in the NUC's mobo, which was fine, whatever. But on the first release of Sierra Apple mistakenly threw us a bone! The included bluetooth worked, but not the wifi which is still unsupported. I happily used the integral bluetooth until the first update to Sierra came along, and bluetooth mysteriously disappeared. I just updated to 10.12.3 and it's still gone from the settings menu. I made a Ubuntu bootstick to verify that it wasn't a hardware problem, and all of my devices do in fact sync up just fine under Ubuntu. Here's the output of the console in regard to blued. http://pastebin.com/LG5MEuKB And my USB device list showing the identified bluetooth controller is attached. As of these last two updates I get "no information found" in the bluetooth system report and the bluetooth menu item is greyed out, showing "not available". Anyone got any ideas?
  14. Hi, Ive been having a little bit of trouble with my mac, it works beautifully just a few issues that i am currently having. I havnt installed a DSDT as i have been unable to find out, and not sure how i would install one either. i havnt installed any packages, just used [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and ran everything i needed to get audio and such to get working. But here are my issues: My sleep doesnt work properly, i put it to sleep and then on awaking nothing happens i just get a blank screen, i am unsure on what to do about this. Also heard about speedstepping, not sure exactly what to do with that either? My bluetooth dongle i have bought and used. it work on connecting my magic mouse and bluetooth keyboard, but when i turn off and turn back they are not automatically connected again, i have to remove the keyboard and repair it with the machine (the mouse not so much a problem, just need to click connect, but still it defeats the object of having them when i have to use a wired mouse to get them back online. here is the info on my bluetooth dongle i know about the hex to decimal stuff but that didnt get me anywhere. but if its a case of buying a new one then im happy to buy. so these are my issues i have been trying to resolve for a few weeks, just unable to find a solution. Thinking of upgrading the motherboard to deluxe or pro, if anyone has resolved all these problems with one of these boards, please let me know, how it can be done and how easy it is to do But if a solution is out there for this board that would be tremendous. i have Motherboard: p8p67 le CPU: i7 2600k cosair SD hd any questions just ask and i will try and the information for you Thanks Phil
  15. Hello there, I want to start this topic because I know there are many hardware shipping last generation Intel cards, which incorporates 2,4 and 5 GHz bands. I could be posible to make it work with help of the community. There are currently two projects attempting to fix these wifi chipsets, but they doesn't work, they only show version of firmware of the card or attempt to load it. These are based on Linux drivers https://github.com/ammulder/AppleIntelWiFiMVM/releases/ These are based on FreeBSD drivers https://github.com/bjornefitte/IntelWifiPort I'm not a very experienced programmer, but I can help, and I have hardware to test, I got a Intel 3165. However, bluetooth works with some issues. It can connect with my Android and browse its contents, permitting to download and upload files.
  16. Hi, I have a iogear usb bluetooth module connected to my Gigabyte DS3H/I5-2500K based system, and it generally works great, even allowing me to wake from sleep, with no drivers needed. However, I've done something twice so far, not sure what, that mucks up the connection to my trackpad and magic mouse in a weird way. It appears to be connected, but the cursor movement is very erratic and unpredictable. If I lift the mouse at all while moving it, the cursor jumps half way across the screen. The trackpad is also jumpy and iffy, disconnecting and reconnecting on its own and rapidly, and tapping stops working -- only real clicks. Finally, clicking on the bluetooth menu in the menu bar takes about 5 seconds to appear every time. No idea what causes this to happen, but last night it occurred when I started Parallels and the windows machine thought a bluetooth device had been connected and took it over. Even after I disabled bluetooth devices in the windows machine, and shut it down, the devices wouldn't work properly on the Mac side, and restarting did not help. The solution, both times that this happened, was to simply unplug the bluetooth dongle and plug it back into different USB port. Hope this helps someone who is experiencing strange bluetooth behavior!
  17. I just updated my Dell Latitude E6400 (with NVIDIA Quadro graphics) to Snow Leopard 10.6.8 However, the built-in trackpad and keyboard do not work when I boot up from Chameleon (I used the latest Chameleon wizard)!! The keyboard and trackpad only work when I boot up from the XBooter CD (which was the only way for me to successfully install Snow Leopard). The battery indicator only shows up when I boot from XBooter, but does not appear when I boot up from Chameleon. The Appstore only works when I boot up from Chameleon. WiFi, Bluetooth, and the SDHC card slot do not work for both Chameleon and XBooter. I have already installed all kexts and dsdt for my model. The keyboard and trackpad stop working after an extended period of use when I boot from the XBooter CD. Also, in what position is the switch for the radio antenna to be on? To sum it up: Works for XBooter: Keyboard/Trackpad (Limited functionality) Battery Indicator (I used the Voodoo kext) Sound Doesn't work for XBooter: Appstore Works for Chameleon: Appstore Sound Doesn't work for Chameleon: Keyboard Trackpad Battery Indicator Doesn't work for both Chameleon and XBooter Wifi Bluetooth Mute Please provide feedback so I can get my Hackintosh up and running. If anyone can provide feedback on how to upgrade to Lion, that would be great. I have already tried xMove, but the installation gets stuck at the Apple logo when I boot up from the installation partition. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  18. Hello, I have El Capitan with nearly everything working. The magic mouse doesn't auto connect each time I boot, I have to wait for the bluetooth prompt to appear in order to connect it. I am using Clover boot manager and IOgear bluetooth dongle with Z77DSH3 mainboard. I spent a lot of time bouncing my head against the wall, switching some (random) options with the clover configurator and I gave up. There is the config.plist attached for reference. config.plist.zip
  19. I updated to Mountain Lion and my D-Link DB-120 Bluetooth dongle has been working intermittently. It was working at first, then stopped. Then started working again - now not. I think the changes are to do with the way I've been loading kexts. I was experimenting with the Lion bluetooth kexts in an attempt to fix things. Now I've moved all my kexts to S/L/E and rebuilt the kernel cache. I'm using the Mountain Lion bluetooth kexts. The Bluetooth dongle is not properly recognised: Apple Bluetooth Software Version: 4.1.7f2 12718 Hardware Settings: Address: 00-13-46-11-6E-8F Manufacturer: Cambridge Silicon Radio Name: xxx's Mac Pro Firmware Version: 525 Bluetooth Power: On Discoverable: Off Connectable: Yes Remote wake: On Vendor ID: 0x0A12 Product ID: 0x0001 HCI Version: 0x1 HCI Revision: 0x20D LMP Version: 0x1 LMP Subversion: 0x20D Device Type (Major): Miscellaneous Device Type (Complete): Miscellaneous Composite Class Of Device: 0x0000 Device Class (Major): 0x00 Device Class (Minor): 0x00 Service Class: 0x00 If I use the Lion bluetooth kexts, the dongle is recognised correctly. But when I do sudo kextcache -prelinked-kernel to rebuild the kernel cache, there is an error with the AppleHIDMouse kext, and I guess this is why my Magic Mouse is not detected. There is also an error if I use the Lion AppleHIDMouse.kext Any suggestions? Other people seem to have this dongle working in ML OK... Thanks.
  20. I'm co-founder of Bubble, a small start-up in SF, we're currently developing an API that enables you to : - detect if two phones with the same app are nearby, EVEN IF THE APPS ARE IN THE BACKGROUND - exchange data with people around you - send push notifications to users nearby. Simple examples : - exchange virtual currency / objects with people around you - automatically create a leaderboard based on the people you came across - get a push notification if you come across someone who is playing the same game as you. (with his highscore? ) What do you think ? We believe a lot can come from this, and we're looking for beta testers !

    Bluetooth & WiFi n00b

    Hi All, New to the forum and hackintoshing. I have built TonyMacX's mini deluxe with the GA-Z87N-WIFI mobo and am running Mavericks/10.9.4. WiFi apparently is a no go and it turns out the bluetooth has serious issues. I had it working at one point, but now it's gone AWOL and from all I have read it doesn't look like anyone has got it going properly. My situation: I don't really *need* WiFi, it would be a nice extra. I need bluetooth only because I have a wireless mouse I rather like (in fact I had to borrow this wired mouse )! Can someone introduce me to this world of WiFi & BT on hackintosh? I found Toleda's guide and read a few other threads. Is there a plug and play option available to me? I want to minimise any additional software fixes to avoid agony when I inevitably update the OS. It seems like the only plug and play for BT is a dongle, such as GMYLE – is that right? I am very fond of the little aerial that came with my mobo and I had hoped to simply replace the card on the mobo, which I think is a mini-PCIe? Are there any options better than the one's Toleda mentions? Probably really obvious stuff, but I'd love some help from someone more experienced. Thanks for reading.
  22. Hello guys! I'm having a problem with post-installation with my mavericks, made usb install stick with Pandora's Box on vmware. Installed with boot args ( -x -v maxmem=4096 npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=Yes) Thought that those would work after installing also but they didnt. I tried to google it out whats the problem is. http://imgur.com/6VUWL6U Thats the place where im stuck.. it goes sometimes to something IOCatalogue etc but not going from there also.
