Need some Bluetooth advice

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to use a Bluetooth headset as audio i/o for Skype. (osx 10.12.6 + Bluetooth dongle.)


The headset connects, it even appears in my Sound I/O options in Sys Prefs ... but if I try to select it, the panel freezes for a few seconds and then disconnects.


I tried BrcmPatchRAM but no dice.


Someone on reddit said best to get a Broadcom wifi/bt card.


I saw this on ebay


Does this plug right into my mobo? Or do I need an adapter as well?


I also am wondering ... Is it possible to use an Airport card from an old 2008 MacBook Pro in a desktop Hackintosh (for WiFi & Bluetooth)?

      Ciao a tutti. Vorrei condividere con voi questo prodotto acquistato su wish. Per poco più di 2€ ho acquistato questa chiavetta bluetooth 4.0. In descrizione c'è scritto per windows. Appena arrivata a casa attaccata alla mia macchina e ed perfettamente funzionante anche su OS X. Ancora in fase di test ma sembra non fare una piega.



      L'unica pecca è che fa una luce intermittente fortissima.
      Adesso gli metto su un pò di nastro isolante nero.

      I used BCM943602CS for my Hackintosh. On High Sierra, the WiFi works well, however, the bluetooth doesn't work. I cannot find the bluetooth icon on the system preference pane. From the system report, I can see that the Device can be recognized as 'Bluetooth USB Host Controller'. From IORegistryExplorer, I've found that the device for it has a UsbConnector value of 0x0, which is weird. And the IOResources part says the device is not built-in. I don't know whether it has something to do with my MSI B350 Tomahawk (an AMD platform) motherboard. If someone has some advice, please help me out.

      Hi my IOGEAR Bluetooth 4.0 USB Micro Adapter (GBU521) never worked well. My bluetooth speakers does not work, always lost connection and my bluetooth headphones the same problem!
      Does anyone have an adapter that really works?

      I have macos Sierra 10.12 on my Asus X556U, and i am having problems with my Bluetooth. it doesn't detect any other device and i can't detect it from any other device. 
      my bluetooth is at most integrated with my WIFI card an Atheros AR956X which is not supported natively by OS X. So i used to say that maybe it is the source of my bluetooth not working. But One day it worked, I was trying to install new kexts to try and make my Wifi work. It didn't  but my bluetooth did and i got to even connect to a wireless earbuds. Since that time i was trying to recreate the same settings i did at that time but still couldn't. 
      So i am asking for some help to make my bluetooth work again.
      i attached gen_debug output, has most needed files for debugging.
