wifi card BCM94352HMB not detected high sierra

68 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Mine BCM94352HMB . WIfi is Working fine. Only BT is causing  me headaches.


 


As I used to have both Wifi and BT fully working in 10.12.x. In 10.13.x  BT sucks even if it is up. Scan is erratic detecting devices randomly but I cannot pair.


Wifi is Fine with H Sierra.


 


I am using Asus Vivo PC VM 60 i5 3337U recognized as Mac Mini (late 2012).


 


I always have to use the patch below to have BT detected and UP.


AirPortBrcm4360 - fcvo

with clover + BrcmFirmwareRepo and BrcmPatchRAM2 


 


 


I gave up on bluetooth.

in efi BrcmPatchRAM2 with BrcmFirmwareData.kext

This is how I used to have very stable BT in 10.12.x.

In High Sierra, Where should I put it  ;) ?

The highlighted kexts are necessary to have wifi (the two FakePCIIDs) and bluetooth (the other two) working. As of 10.13.1, there's no need to have patched regarding wifi or bt on your config.plist. If it doesn't work even with these kexts, you might have a patched (or missing) IO80211Family.kext. In this case, boot recovery mode or installer. They both use different kexts that are very unlikely to have been patched (at least for the common user).

Are you saying the IO80211Family.kext need to be untouched ?

I never get in hackintosh recovery mode...I will try that.

Exactly.

If you're using Clover UEFI (or even Clover Legacy on ESP), you should be able to boot Recovery HD easily.

What to do with in Recovery...I perform reinstall?

First of all, check if wifi works. If the answer is yes (and in normal mode you have access to the App Store), you can reinstall macOS. Do not erase the disk. It will install the latest version of macOS High Sierra over your actual one and you won't lose any data.

Thanks for answer dude.

Wifi is always fine and very stable.

So All I need is download HSierra from Appstore and run the install wizard

Will this wipe the EFI partition ?

You can reinstall it from recovery. :)

In this way, you will avoid the creation of the installer.

Don't erase or partition the disk and your data and EFI will stay intact.

I just did the reinstall from the recovery.

I still have the same behavior. No Bluetooth detected without Kext Patch.

Wifi is Fine.

 

is BrcmFirmwareData.kext preinstalled natively by MacOS? I found it in /S/L/E

Reinstalling rewrites system kexts but it doesn't remove third-party kexts (like BrcmFirmwareData.kext). Remove manually BrcmFirmwareData.kext from S/L/E and rebuild cache with Kext Utility (let it run, close it only when "Quit" button becomes avaiable). Put BrcmFirmwareData.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13. Reboot and see if BT is working.

BT is connected through USB. Have you already increased usb port limit? Are you using usbinjectall.kext?

Attach output from terminal after you run

kextstat | grep -v com.apple
