I have no idea how to make this working


Have you tried the BlueTool.kext? Must use without any other BlueToothInjectors in the kext Folder.

All this information I got from BS, not from Monterey Because under Monterey the Card doesn't load the Firmware

Yea I had the same problem with the same card under Monterey but unfortunately thinking the card went bad, I messed around with it and had a slight mishap and completely destroyed it. At the moment I'm using a Fenvi T-919 (Yea I know, some people won't go near this card) but I can say I was pleasantly surprised with the performance. Recognized instantly by Monterey, plus available Drivers for Windows so an all rounder for me. Update - I ordered and received another genuine Apple Card but will keep it aside in reserve or for another build.

I really appreciate your help, you guys are really awesome thanks for the quick response

I did the method with these three kexts no luck

Bluetooth's firmware still not loaded with all these kext or only BluetoothFixup kext no luck

  • BlueToolFixup.kext
  • BrcmFirmwareData.kext
  • BrcmPatchRAM3.kext

Tried with the kexts, and it didn't work, thanks for the kext and good luck...


Yeah I'm in the same boat, I think we have to wait for someone to find an solution...

For the time being I removed my adapter and right now I'm using the Intel WiFi and no bluetooth...

@Rocky12 & @MorenoAv - Guys I am neither an agent or shareholder for this product but this card got me out of the spot you're experiencing, fitted and recognized immediately by Monterey both B/T and WIFI functions working instantly without injectors also drivers available for Windows if dual booting. I know it has a bad rep in some quarters but it has been reported there are some Clones of this card in the wild and the performance of these cards are somewhat flaky. This is the  unit I bought (attached) and the performance is flawless both in Windows and OS X.

Hello @chris1111, I have one Azurewave4360+20702 Combo [0b05:180a] in my Asus X99 Deluxe, i use BlueToolFixup.kext together with BrcmFirmwareData.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext from the latest release, it works as it should (bt works, firmware loads fine, handoff), the only issue I have is if I turn off bluetooth I can't turn it back on untill I restart the hack. This is what I see in the console when I try to turn bluetooth back on.
