You SHOULDN'T use "BrcmFirmwareData.kext BrcmPatchRAM2.kext " cause this is native card.

Problem may be in adapter (18pin->pcie) or something else. Can you share photo with your's adapter? Chinese guys frequently confused 5v+ and GND BT connectors or something else.. But you affirm that BT works until update, so now I'm at a loss

thanks for replaying yes i switch it to macbook pro and is working there so i don't know what is causing it to no work in my hack 

First of all try to remove all 3rd party kext's related to BT and keep all bt system "vanilla", and then check BT again, if it won't help then problem in pcie adapter

I had this problem on my MSI Laptop. I installed Ubuntu on my laptop and turned it on through ubuntu. If you can turn it on on Windows or Ubuntu it will stay on the Mac Os X. That is how I fixed my none working bluetooth issues. I did not delete my kext files I just turned it back on with another operating system in my case it was ubuntu.

Dear Sir! Probably OP uses desktop mobo which doesn't have any acpi related switches for BT (wmi), so, I bet, there is no problem with this...

Is it working in Windows now? Because mine was broken in Windows 10 and El Capitan 10.11.6 and I turned it on in Ubuntu and got it working again. Now I keep it on all the time.

The key is to make sure you use the same kext files that you was using when it was working and turning it back on through Ubuntu.

Does the Wifi shows up? Maybe you may have to install the broadcom bluetooth drivers in ubuntu. Do a google search for those drivers.

I had the same issue, use the attached kext in S/L/E

rebuild kext and fix permissions

For handoff support apply patch to clover:

 

Name: IOBluetoothFamily

 

F:4885FF7447488B07

R:41BE0F000000EB44

 

Comment :10.11.5 BT4LE-Handoff-Hotspot

 

Hope this will help you.


by the way, don't delete any IOBT kexts just leave everything as it was in installation...this is working for me good in 10.11.6 and excellent in 10.12 maybe 10.12 have better support for my board don't know...

BT on 10.11 is working but when using BT audio speaker sound is sometimes choppy, and handoff is working but not all the time, in 10.12 everything is working fine.

He shouldn't use any of this patches! It's native module from apple device! It works OOB without any kext's or patches.

This kext's and patches only suitable for unsupported combo card like bcm94352hmb or something else. But OP using bcm943602cs from mbp 2015

I have exactly same problem, using BCM943602CS, WIFI is working but Bluetooth is dead after updating to 10.11.6. System Report says that USB get the Bluetooth card successfully but in Bluetooth tab it says no information.

I've tried BluetoothInjecter but it doesn't work. Any solution currently ?

Hi guys, @fariel23,

I have that same wifi/bluetooth combo, and its working as it should, as you can see in the photos attached to this post... The only kext that I use is the AirportBrcmFixup, after I switched to WhateverGreen, nothing more te card work without any kexts, but I used Sierra, High Sierra, and now I use Mojave, and the card continues to work consistently...
