Hey everyone,

So I successfully got Mojave 10.14.4 working but for the life of me can't get Bluetooth working at all. I purchased the BCM943602CS Wifi/BT card which is suppose to work out of the box, the Wifi works but Bluetooth does not.

I have already connected the included cable to a USB header on the mobo.

Mojave 10.14.4

Kext added to EFI:

  • AppleALC.kext v1.3.7
  • IntelMausiEthernet.kext v2.4.1d1
  • Lilu.kext v1.3.5
  • SMCBatteryManager.kext v1
  • SMCLightSensor.kext v1
  • SMCProcessor.kext v1.0.3
  • SMCSuperIO.kext v1.0.3
  • USBInjectAll.kext v0.7.1
  • VirtualSMC.kext v1.0.3
  • WhateverGreen.kext v1.2.8
Hardware:
  • CPU: i7 8700 (non-K version)
  • GPU: MSI OC 8gb RX 570
  • RAM: 32gb Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3000 (2 x 16gb in slot A2 and B2)
  • Motherboard/Laptop model: Asus Prime Z370-A II
  • Wifi/BT Card: Broadcom BCM943602CS - Bought from eBay

You're going to need to configure your USB ports with a custom USB SSDT so that the BT's USB 2.0 header is functional. Then BT will work if you've got that resolved.

Ok so I added a custom USB SSDT and now bluetooth is completely unavailable.

Here's my ports according IO Reg: https://cl.ly/4db1bea94281

Also attached the DSL I created. Not sure if I entered everything correctly?

If I understand correctly:
  • For a USB bus on the motherboard in the DSL I should put "UsbConnector" as 255?
  • If the address in IOReg is "port <0e 00 00 00>", in the DSL I put "Buffer() { 0x0e, 0, 0, 0 }"?
Thank you.

It would be best to post your USB SSDT questions in the beginners guide thread so that others attempting one with the same motherboard can also learn how it's done.
