did you check the info.plist?

IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext/Contents/Info.plist

<string>pci14e4,4329</string>

Update: I went in IO80211Family.kext and edited both 4311 and 43224, adding brcm4329. Repaired permissions and rebooted. Everything is fine now. Thank you very much

Can I use Clover to fake my Atheros device ID so my Hack thinks I have this Broadcom card installed?  Will handoff work then??  Why doesn't anyone wanna acknowledge this question...

One thing I did notice: unfortunately, my system is not capable of reaching (or even getting close to) 11K in Geekbench 2, a recurrent issue since Yosemite, at least for me. With one of the DPs, it scored north of 11.2K, and with Mavericks and Mountain Lion, since I solved PM, never bellow 11K.

I'm still scoring 12 plus with YM, PM seems to be working fine for me with Clover. Just still kinda TO'd about Handoff (in my Kip voice)…

I believe nobody really knows what’s going on with handoff, hence the silence. You should start a new thread to gather information about the issue.

 

Regarding your question, Clover should be able to fake the device id to a compatible one but changing vendor won’t work cause the OS will load the Broadcom driver instead of the Atheros you need. Try emulating some handoff compatible Atheros model (there’s no list, just Mac compatible models I believe).

Thank you for at least replying. I will have to look around for a compatible Atheros model and see what I can find. Thank you for the insight.

I just still don't understand what wifi has to do with handoff. But I guess time will tell.

You're not alone. My WIFI doesn't work in GM, either. Although my card is Atheros 9380.

WIFI doesn't even show up as a service under Networking.

Tried rolling back to a previous IO80211Family.kext release - no dice.

Ah. Got her fixed up.

I noticed during the cache build I got the following in the log:

AirPortAtheros40.kext - no compatible dependency found for com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily.

 

AirPortTheros40.kext is a plugin in IO80211Family.kext.

So, I just extracted the two kexts from the installer and reinstalled them and set permissions. All okay, now, and posting from it.

…extremely frustrating.  What Atheros model are you guys using that's compatible with Handoff?  I want to try to fake my device and see if it enables it.

Dongles, for some reason, won't work, even with Apple Macs, and with supported Broadcom chipsets. Hope it gets hacked someday, but i would not hold my breath for it. Instead, go for a recycled PCIe x1 original Apple BT/WiFi solution: Google is your friend! :D

 

Or do what I decided to, and simply stop to care about it.

No I saw the compatible cards… but I don't feel like spending $65-100 on something that in theory should already be working. I'm sure there's a simple hack to get it working.

After poking around for awhile now, I'm kinda gathering that you need a 802.11ac compatible wifi card for Handoff…? Does that sound right?

No, you do not need an AC compatible wireless card. If that was the case then any mac manufactured before 2013 would not have it. It's still being investigated. We will know more when Yosemite is released to the public in 2 weeks time. My assumption is that if you have a compatible BT 4.0 card with LE and a supported chipset there will be a way to activated Handoff. The CSR cards are a hit and miss, the broadcom cards have normally good support.

 

I'm not too bothered at the moment, I have an iPhone 5S and an iPad Air but they are on 7.1.2 because of the jailbreak. When the iOS 8 jailbreak is released then I will be interested!

I think your problem is actually the Bluetooth device, I haven’t seen not even one example of a USB Bluetooth dongle with working Handoff.

Hi,

 

I'm on the GM1 of Yosemite. Has anyone here tried to use Netflix without Silverlight? In Safari of course.

My Z87 Haswell Hack on internal graphics should be able to do it Hardware wise but Netflix won't let me use HTML5 over Silverlight. My Mid2010 MBP can't do it so I can not check if it is not implemented yet or something Hacks might not be able to do or only with additional tweaking.

Wow, well, "general" question, is public beta program tester able to download yet?

Now PB4 is avalable for download it's pretty much the GM.
