Bluetooth Firmware Uploader

Recommended Posts

0cf3:e005 appears to be Atheros AR3012. It is not in the list of supported devices of p1 so follow the instructions given on that page for such instances. Simple, eh? May not work of course!

I have found a dirty way to make ar3012 and perhaps other stuff initially supported by this kext work in 10.13.6.

No VM or other crazy methods are needed.

What I've done is I installed 10.12.6 usb kexts over the original:

 

IOUSBHostFamily.kext.zip 801.12 kB · 67 downloads   IOUSBFamily.kext.zip 800.21 kB · 61 downloads

 

 

Do I need any other kext for BT to work(eg: `BTFirmwareUploader.kext`)?
Mine is working with the VM method. But I want to load without opening VM.

I replaced both the `IOUSBHostFamily` and `IOUSBFamily` from S/L/E. and kept  BTFirmwareUploader.kext inside `Clover/kexts/Others`. Still bluetooth is not getting detected.

My card was natively recognized on mac Catalina but didn't find any devices ( magic mouse and magic keyboard ).

Would somebody give me a solution?

 

PS: The card was not recognized on mac Mojave as here: 

 

Vendor ID: 0x0CF3

Product ID: 0xE005

 

Thank you.

Why do you keep posting about that same old issue in this thread when a solution has already been posted here and here?

 

This being said, if this still fails to sort out your DW1707 Bluetooth issue, I think it's fair to say that:

  1. given it does not work in High sierra
  2. given it does not work in Mojave
  3. given it does not work in Catalina

it probably will never work (again).

I Have a DW1703 that is AR3012. i found a way to make the VM method work for Catalina 10.15.4. its a hacky method that will break if you update unless you undo it before you take an update. this is a rough guideline.

 

make Mac disk RW

make EFI Visable

remove/copy IOBluetoothFamily.kext from S/L/E

Place IOBluetoothFamily.kext in C/K/O

rebuild caches

 

this part repeats everytime you boot:

boot with IOBluetoothFamily.kext and its underlings disabled in clover

proceed with vm method

REBOOT (without turning off) back into mac os without disabling in clover

 

EDIT= another less destructive way

get setup to do vm method

once vm is open go to bluetooth page in ubnutu

in the add usb/bluetooth window of vmwarefusion spam the checkbox for your wireless device (will only disconect from mac for a second) untill you are able to turn device on and off using key combo

 

Attatched is screenshot proof

So, this will make BTFirmwareUploader.kext work in systems from High Sierra +...?

Does it work with Catalina?
