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

Bluetooth is working but the Settings tell me that I can't use Handoff / Instant Hotspot e.t.c... 


I used the brcm repo kext to install. 


So, how I activate Instant Hotspot and all the things ?


I have this Wifi Card: DW1560 BCM94352Z


I have this Wifi Chip: 


        Card Type: AirPort Extreme  (0x14E4, 0x19)

  Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (



I have this bluetooth chip :  


         Manufacturer: Broadcom

  Transport: USB

  Chipset: 20702A3

  Firmware Version: v14 c5668

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 :)

Yes, and it helped. Calls worked. Instant hotspot for 2 seconds. After restart, nothing worked again. AirDrop never worked. 


I also noticed that the Wireless LED on the Laptop is only on when im open the bluetooth preferences on mac and searching for devices...
