I created a fresh install of macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 on my Dell XPS. All wireless functions seem to be working (bluetooth, wifi) except airdrop outbound.

I can send files from iOS device running on latest firmware to my hackintosh. I cannot send files from iOS to hackintosh. When I try to send files from my hackintosh to iOS, no Airdrop devices are detected. This has been tested with two separate iPhone 6s. I'm using Dell DW1560 for my wireless card with proper Broadcom kexts installed in /L/E.

Can anyone help me figure out why my hackintosh will not detect any airdrop devices?

Edit: Problem Reporting files attached & custom kexts moved to /L/E from /S/L/E

I can send files from my iOS device running on latest firmware and my hackintosh will download the files. When I try to send files from my hackintosh to iOS, no Airdrop devices are available from the menu. This has been tested with two separate iPhone 6s.

As per FAQ, kexts go to /L/E, not /S/L/E.

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

Broadcom kexts were moved to /Library/Extensions and Problem Reporting files attached to original post.

Problem is persisting.

Your kextcache output proves kexts are not installed correctly (for example, FakeSMC.kext is clearly/obviously a "kext you need", yet it is not installed).

All kexts you need must be installed to the system volume.
Read post #2 of the Clover guide for details:

I didn't check anything else.

Hey, I have the same problem. Was wondering if you ever found a fix?
