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, ...
Updated to Catalina, and also have a new Apple Watch. Upgrade from Mojave went great, only updated some kexts for the Wifi/bluetooth to make bluetooth work.Airdrop, Handoff etc. all work like a charm. Sidecar is also enabled (but I don't have the iPad, so can't test).
However, the Apple Watch features are not there. I've went to System Report, and noticed in my Wifi that "Auto Unlock: True" isn't there at all. How come? I've read some success stories with my Wifi/BT chip, which is:
Broadcom BCM94352Z NGFF Dual Band 802.11ac 867M Wifi BT 4.0 Lenovo FRU 04X6020
I'm using these kexts from Headkaza, which were needed to get Bluetooth to work:
Wifi is working great, 5GHZ, full speed. So I'm pretty lost on how to get this "Auto Unlock: True" enabled.
Extra info about my system:
Processor: Intel Core i5 8400
Videocard: Radeon RX 570 4GB
Motherboard: ASRock Z370M-ITX/ac
Replaced my Intel wifi chip with the BCM94352Z
SMBIOS: Retina 5K 27" 2017
Hello, I am posting this show how I adapted the BCM94360CS2 M2 NGFF board on my Lenovo L440.
I have some guides about this notebook over here and previously used Dell DW1560 (BCM94325Z).
The DW1560 worked almost perfectly Handoff, Continuity, Universal Clipboard and AirDrop with the kexts: AirportBrmFixup.kext, BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM3.kext and BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext, but the Instant Hotspot doesn't work.
So, I decided to grab a M2 NGFF adaptor (because this notebook only have mPCIe) and the BCM94360CS2 and put inside this notebook:
Previously with DW1560
Moved the battery and removed DW1560
Obviously don't fit
Need to cut this piece of plastic and remove the CMOS battery conector
Maybe I removed too much plastic (hehe) and soldered the battery wires directly in motherboard
Now the adapter fits
Instant hotspot now working without any Kexts, yeah!
Important! Just remember: this notebook have whitelist in BIOS/UEFI that need to be patched to allow other wireless cards.
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:
CPU: i7 6500U with HD520
SSD: 500GB SSD Samsung
Wifi & Bluetooth: Dell DW1820A (Bluetooth: BCM2045A0) (Wifi: BCM94350ZAE)
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
