Thanks for the info Toleda, Can you please share some links to a working case for the BCM943225 HMB/AzureWave AW-NB290H, I´m really interested in get a combo card working.

 

P.D.

 

I think the atheros 9280 is 2 streams 300Mbps and the 9380 is 3 streams 450Mbps.

 

 

Good Luck

Just for further information, the Broadcom BCM4352 (Azurewave card) requires a DSDT edit to be recognized by OSX. 

Not true; all three injection methods noted in Post #1 are working with the BCM4352.   The BT edits are described as well. BCM4352 solutions are available from the repo noted in Post #1.

Toleda thanks for your work, but I'm unable to use my card on 10.8.5+

 

My card is a dw 1520 (bcm 943224, vendor id 14e4 and device id 4353) and I'm using it with a dsdt on gigabyte brix.

I've followed your guide without success and I don't know what is wrong.

Can I send to you my edited files? 

 

Thanks again ;-)

Hi Toleda !

 

I read your post here and on tonycrap forum. There are some different information like:

 

Here: 

Notes/Broadcom

  1. Wake on LAN - not working, update BCM4352 working
  2. 5 GHz - BCM4352 not working

there:

Notes - Broadcom

  1. Wake on LAN - not working (BCM94352 working)
  2. 5 GHz - not working (BCM94352)

 

then we can notice 

Note: The Asus Superfast 802.11ac (Z87 Pro & Deluxe motherboards) is the BCM4352

so the question is: is that Asus module 100% working or just 2,4GHz ? 

 

also here there is some kext link next to Asus module and on tony forum there is not.

 

I don't understand the following text:

1. BCM943352 HMB/AzureWave AW-CE123H supports both Airport and Bluetooth 4.0

  1. The Asus Superfast 802.11ac (Z87 Pro & Deluxe motherboards) is the BCM4352

on the top there is BCM943352 and Asus module seems to belong to that, but then you wrote it is BCM4352...

 

I'm looking for combo module - 802.11ac with Bluetooth 4.0 (half mini) - is there any working OOB ? if not - is there any working with only some SSDT edits ? are there any limitation - something is not working ?

My mistake, assume the BCM94352 and BCM4352 are the same.  At this time, 5 GHz is not working.  The Azureware AW-CE123H is available from www.embeddedworks.net.

but AzureWave AW-CE123H is also on Broadcom BCM4352, so it will not work at 5GHz too… Is that mean there is no combo module working without any issue ?

The 43225 works without issue, 2.4 WiFi and 3.0 BT.

Any chance for BCM943228 please :(

Unlikely. See brcm80211 - Linux Wireless.

Hi Toleda,

As fasr as I know, Airdrop only works with other OS X computers. It does not work with iOS devices.

Thanks Pokenguyen, you mean in hackintosh it works with OSX computers only ? cause iOS 7 has airdrop and it seems to be working in real macs. Seems Airdrop is not interoperable between OSX and iOS, need confirmation .

thanks pokenguyen, that's clear. I found a alternate.

 

Instashare  (http://instashareapp.com/) Does what Airdrop should have done . It has apps for OSX, iOS and Android and works efficiently between  all the devices. I just shared files between  Maverick, Nexus 4 and iPhone 5C without a sweat (aka internet)  using Airdrop on OSX !

Hi there,

 

I want to patch my dsdt to get ar9285 working with native kext.

The thing is, I dont realy understand the instruction.

My card is on RP02 and the device id is 002B, wich is not listed by the supported.

 

Is there a way for me to get my card working by patching dsdt?

What should I do next? Could you describe the next step another way, because as I written above, I didnt understand the instruction.

 

Thank you in advance.

AR9285 device_id (2b) typo fixed.  Download [Guide] airport_pcie-hm_dsdt_edits.pdf.  In the patch file:

Find: RP07

Replace: RP02

Apply

 

Note: do not edit device_id in patch file.

Well, this is how the patch looks like.

 

into device Label PXSX parent_label RP07 replace_content begin

Name (_ADR, Zero)\n

Name (_SUN, One)\n

Name (_PRW, Package (0x02) {0x09,0x04})\n

    Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)\n

    {\n

         If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Return (Buffer() { 0x03 } ) }\n

         Return (Package()\n

               {\n

                 "AAPL,slot-name","AirPort",\n

                 "built-in", Buffer () {0x00},\n

                 "device-type","AirPort",\n

                 "model","Atheros AR9x8x 802.11 a/b/g/n Wireless Network Controller",\n

                "name", "AirPort Extreme",\n

                 "compatible","pci168c,30"\n

         })\n

    }\n

end;

 

Wich part do I have to edit?

I cant find RP07, do I miss something?

I checked the pdf... my DSDT is not "A M I". Does it mean there is no way?

Or is it just untested. Could you explain it to me, why it works only with "A M I" DSDT?

 

thx
