Hello. I successfully installed macOS and all WiFi and Bluetooth drivers.

Hi :)


I have the same WiFi card installed in my E7450 so hopefully You will manage to get Handoff/Hotspot running comparing Your configuration to mine.

I have followed a simple guide by Ross Fisher, however not step by step - I skipped some points, as everything works perfectly without them.


I have installed the following kexts on my EFI partition (/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11):

  • FakePCIID
  • FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi
  • BrcmPatchRAM2
  • BrcmFirmwareData

These should deal with proper WiFi module identification as Airport Extreme, which results in working 5GHz band without any additional patches and fakeID injections in Clover Configuration.

Also Bluetooth module should be working visible in System Report, although without Handoff/Hotspot support yet.

There are no custom or modified kexts files connected with WiFi/Bluetooth neither in /Library/Extensions nor in /System/Library/Extensions.


Next thing is Clover KernelAndKextPatches configuration in config.plist file:


My system definition is MacBookPro12,1 and I have El Capitan 10.11.5 installed.


Good luck :)
