The IO80211Family kext and AirPortBrcm4331 both load as evidenced by kextstat but that's about it. I also tried removing the pci14e4,4353 property from AirPortBrcm4331 and adding it to AppleAirPortBrcm43224. Unfortunately, same result. kextstat shows that both kexts are successfully loaded but no still sign of an interface.
A bit of research seems to bear out that all others who have tried this WiFi card on a HackBook have failed.
If anybody has any ideas, I'm willing to try.
Oh, and I'm running the latest Lion 10.7.3 in 64 bit mode.
Maybe you can try here:
seems that someone has had success with your card
[quote="philip_petev":15eeyfqx]Only Broadcom cards with SSB Backplane SPROM can be modified (the chips prior to 94322 incl. 943227 and 943228). The newest models, handled by the new linux OSS drivers brcmfmac and brcmsmac(94313, 943224, 943225 and 94330), cannot be modified this way (or at least there is no one yet, who has managed to do this).
This was the first guide I've found on the net and it's really very usefull, but it cannot be applied for the new Broadcom chips (94313, 943224, 943225, 94330).

Just bought an ‘ersatz’ BCM94322MC off ebay – changed subp to 0×0093 and subv to 0x106b, and now my card is reported as ‘Airport Extreme’
That’d be a BlackBook 4,1 with AirDrop enabled then…
Thanks to those that developed and published this technique!
I unwisely exchanged for another model as above.
However, looking here and there, I found this program:
I have installed it in Windows, and seems to give very much information ...
If you want to try, do you think might be helpful to get a file (for Atheros AR9285 card) to be written to EEPROM?
This program is used to edit the bios of the PC (he can read binary directly from hardware, and you can easily find the subsys id)
PS (Speaking on the phone with HP Service, the operator has confirmed to me that withelist are the same for HP BIOSes. He argues that to have a specific model of wifi card, you can use HP's external partners, asking for a specific card.
Obviously the most interesting would think the Atheros, but unfortunately I'm not sure on what operators said )
