It worked for me as follows:

1- Downloaded "BrcmPatchRAM-2.6.1-RELEASE"​
2- Mount my EFI folder​
3- moved :​
BlueToolFixup.kext​
BrcmFirmwareData.kext​
BrcmPatchRAM3.kext​
Restart and Bluetooth and Airdrop both work fine




With Monterey, Apple has completely rewritten the bluetooth stack. As of writing, many bluetooth devices do not work (legacy Broadcom and Intel). With the rewrite, injector kexts break bluetooth support in Monterey, though firmware uploader kexts are still needed. Make sure that you:

  • Disable injector kexts
    • IntelBluetoothInjector.kext for Intel cards
    • BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext for Broadcom cards
    • If you still boot Big Sur or older, you can instead set the MaxKernel field to 20.99.9 for your injector kext in your config.plist.
  • Keep Firmware uploader kexts
    • IntelBluetoothFirmware.kext for Intel
    • BrcmPatchRAM2/3.kext + BrcmFirmwareData.kext for Broadcom
  • Add BlueToolFixup(opens new window)
    • Needed for all non-native Bluetooth devices (Including Intel)
    • If you still boot Big Sur or older, you can set the MinKernel field to 21.00.0 to prevent BlueToolFixup loading on older OSes.

I'm running monterey 12.5 beta 1/2 and my bluetooth went away. It was fine when when I was on 12.4, now bluetooh is gone, SMBIOS iMac20,2.

Code:
Address: NULL
State: Off
Chipset: BCM_4350C2
Discoverable: Off
Firmware Version: v0 c0
Product ID: 0x0001
Supported services: 0x382039 < HFP AVRCP A2DP HID Braille AACP GATT Serial >
Transport: USB
Vendor ID: 0x004C (Apple)

I have the latest kext, 2.6.1 then upgrade to 2.6.2, still nothing. I was hoping if someone can point to a fix.

many thanks.

Are you using the Intel wifi /BT card that comes with your Z590?.. Am asking you this because I replaced mine
With a Broadcom card.

I don't know if you've mapped your USB and it's possible that your BT is tethering off a USB hub......

Try toggling XchiPortLimit off/no inside your plist config with a restart and see if BT turns on with either options...... If this happens... You need to map your USB ports and merge them.

Nope, I replaced with DW1560, USB mapping is working just fine, HS14 is there, just unable to connect to the bluetooth. It was working fine previously then I update to Monterey 12.5 beta 2 and stopped working. Wifi is working just fine, speed was 867 mbit, just bluetooth that went bad. I didn't bother to investigate further, replace it with BCM4360NG.

great, thank you for that ;)

My BT stopped working around 12.*
Left only bluetoolfixup.kext and now it's working fine.
