AzureWave Broadcom BCM94352HMB/BCM94352 WLAN+BT4.0 macOS Sierra 10.12.1

Recommended Posts

I just upgraded my Wi-Fi from DW1510 to an AzureWave Broadcom BCM94352HMB/BCM94352 802.11/ac/867Mbps WLAN + BT4.0 Half Mini PCI-E Card.

Speed Test (Internet..)

macOS Sierra 10.12.1
SMBIOS: MacBookAir6,2

Working:

  • 2.4GHz/5GHz (FCC/US)
  • BT4LE - Handoff (I'm missing something here..) - BT Hotspot
  • Shows as AirPort Extreme card type

Handoff/Continuity is not completing but I think I'm missing something else... maybe iCloud configurations...

Make sure you have your working bootable USB before proceeding.

I've found patches from other sites like this.

For BT injection use these kexts loaded in /S/L/E (rebuild kernel cache after install):

BCM94352HCMB -BT Sierra 10.12.1.zip

For Wi-Fi injection and BT4LE Handoff/Hotspot all through Clover patches:

Acpi (check these, make sure you don't get KP with your SMBIOS model)

  • AddDTGP
  • FixAirport

Boot

  • dart=0
  • kext-dev-mode=1

Devices (inject your device id)

  • WIFI - 0x43a014E4

That's it, I hope it helps those with the same Wi-Fi card model.

I have one of these cards working on a Latitude E6420. I was wondering if you ever got Handoff/Continuity working? On my system they show the BT is capable of those functions but nothing happens when I try to do the Universal Clipboard. Other functions work fine like Airdrop. What I really would like to get working is the Apple Watch unlocking but it says that it cannot communicate with it.

 

I decided to order a AW-CB160H/BCM94360HMB that will come next week but the U.FL to MHF4 adapter cables are shipping from China so they won't be here for a while. I'm hoping it will fix my Continuity issues but I thought I'd still try to troubleshoot my current card until then.

macOS High Sierra 10.13.1

 

AirDrop is working with this card, and it's really fast :)

Handoff / Continuity is active in my system but I never got them working:

 

I see iPhone's safari web page in macOS dock (same with notes, messages, etc)

Universal clipboard doesn't work for me either.

BTW for macOS High Sierra 10.13 things changed and the previous inject methods are not working like before, at least for me.

 

After High Sierra update WiFi was working, BT more or less, I had a "Third Party Wireless Card" instead of Airport Extreme. AirDrop, hotspot, handoff, etc weren't working either.

 

So here's a mini guide, things get simpler with these steps :-P :

 

  1. You need latest Lilu (requires v1.2.0) and load AirportBrcmFixup to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/ 
     
  2. Clover AirPortBrcm4360 kext patches are no longer needed with AirportBrcmFixup.kext so remove or disable them.
     
  3. You still need to inject BT as before, in my case I'm using BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext in /S/L/E
     
  4. Also keep the previous Clover options active such as:

ACPI > Fixes > AddDTGP

ACPI > Fixes > FixAirport

Devices > Fake ID > WIFI =  0x43a014E4

Hi,

 

I'm trying to install one of these in my "HackBook Pro" (Dell Precision M6800 running macOS Sierra 10.12.6), and so far, I have gotten Bluetooth apparently working, but no WiFi. I have applied the patches listed on the first post to no avail. AirportBrcmFixup.kext apparently has no effect either.

 

Any ideas?

add the following kexts to /Library/Extensions, repair permission and rebuild cache

FakePCIID

FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi

 

You can skip these 4 patches with the latest FakePCIID above

I tried another thing, FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, plus something called the fcvo patch. No change.

 

I installed 10.12.6 and the 2018-001 security update. Could that be causing any problems? The update wasn't seamless (a kernel panic caused by an old Lilu.kext (1.2.0), which I fixed by updating it to a newer version (1.2.2)), but I got it sorted out and everything's solid once again. Except WiFi, of course.

 

EDIT: I figured it out! When applying the fcvo patch, I needed to tell it to patch "com.apple.driver.AirPort.Brcm4360" instead of "AirPortBrcm4360."
