Bluetooth Firmware Uploader

Recommended Posts

Hi,

first of all, big thanks you for great Job of Documentation and Implementing.

Now, i have build my first Hackintosh, i'm a newbie and have to learn a lot from all of this.

After installing, OSX 10.9.4 and Wi-Fi is running.
BT is running too, but cannot connect to anything!
System Preferences finds no BT-Devices.

What i wont is, that BT connect/pair my Magic-Mouse.

My IPad Mini-Retina BT see this Hackintosh,
my Android Note-1 GT-7000 (BT 3.0 ?) sees and paired with my MM, Gestures ok.
Win7, also with Dongle BRC-20702, can pair the MM

System is as follows:

Asus Z97I-PLUS (BIOS 2105 last Version) Motherboard
incl. his Broadcom Asus BCM4352 WBT PCIe Half-Mini,
3.5 GHz Intel Core i3-4150 CPU @ 3.50GHz
16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Intel HD 4400 Graphics

At last i installed bcm4352.kext, BTFirmwareUploader.kext, without any modifications.
For each Test, i deinstall prev. kexts, delete /L/P/com.apple.Bluetooth.plist, install with Kext Wizzard incl. repair permissions, rebuild cache, powered down completly with eliminating remaining Power from Board.

Also test this BCM20702 GMyle Dongle, same Result, BT is there, but no pairing possible.

With original Asus BCM4352 WBT PCIe Half-Mini, the blue Led on MB is on, showing, that BT is working.

Now, after testing nearly one Week with all described Methods in the Net i have seen, i don't know what happens. Do i need an BIOS Modification? What is the Problem with Pairing, MB? OSX 10.9.4? Don't know... icon_rolleyes.gif

Thanks for Help

hello

i was wondering if you would help me with my  BT adapter.

 
Here is the info of my BT:
VID: 0x0489 PID: 0xE032
 
Thank you very much

 

 

Is your card standalone or comes with WiFi? What is the model?

 

Hi,I'm using ASUS N550JV.And the WIFI+BT is : Atheros WB225 Combo (AR9485 Wifi(doesn't work) + AR3012 Bluetooth).My VID is 13D3,PID is 3402.Can you upload it ?Thanks!

 

And also I find that when I use the bluetooth to connect Magic Mouse,I sometime can't wake up from sleep.(Sometimes,Not always),The screen is black and I can only hold the Power button to restart.But no logs can be set to system log.So I don't know how to solve it.But when I use USB Mouse,This problem don't happen.Is the problem caused by Bluetooth?THANKS!

 

I'm going to add support for both of your cards to my new version 2.6, PM me for beta kext.

Hi again, i finally found the solution to my problem with the BT, this PC "HP4540s" has a function button for the WIFI and Flight mode, i  get into the Bios and unchecked this function, i don't use then in a Flight.

Now my BT works awesome both to Pair and get detected from other devices.

Just hopes that this can help anybody. 

Forget about this, the BT isue is back today

 

"LAST UPDATE i clean reinstalled Mavericks, but before that i removed the WIFI combo card from the PC, then installed kexts w/o editing those and now BT and WIFI work again, will see how long.

Can you possible update the firmware for BCM20702. I saw real Mac's firmware is v97 c8850. Thx.

 

Firmware used by the Apple is different and should be custom for their device i think. So, we cannot use that and my kext uses the firmware from windows drivers which is based on latest version available.

OK, but can you modify just the firmware version? So under Mac system profile, it will show the same version as on the real Mac.

 

By hacking the version number, it may enable the handoff functionality under 10.10 as it now only working for vanilla Mac wifi/bluetooth module.
