Sorry for the delay in response but it was two weeks before I had a chance to sit down with my mother's computer again!
I've attached the ioreg output as requested; as far as posting the config.plist, I'm not sure which one we're talking about. I didn't actually make any entries into the plist files that were included in the BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext since the firmware for the dongle I'm using (BCM20702) was already listed (perhaps that's where I'm going wrong though).
I ran the command sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / and got the following response but no output:

I also removed the BrcmFirmwareData.kext and replaced it with the BrcmPatchRAM2.kext as it was stated this was the proper kext to use. The output from the system log upon reboot follows:

Hopefully the error of my ways in apparent. The system profiler still displays no Bluetooth.
please excuse me if this is the wrong thread to post my question. If so i would appreciate if you can point me to the right one.
I am trying to get a USB Bluetooth Dongle with Broadcom Chip (and supported USB ID's) working on a real MacBook PRO Retina under 10.11.
I tried to follow the instructions at https://github.com/the-darkvoid/BrcmPatchRAM/blob/master/README-Mac.md
but it looks like 10.11 does not allow this method anymore. Anyway after following the instructions my system.log looks like:
Jan 25 08:32:45 Raouls-MacBook-Pro com.apple.kextd: ERROR: invalid signature for com.no-one.BrcmPatchRAM2, will not load
Jan 25 08:43:33 Raouls-MacBook-Pro com.apple.kextcache: BrcmPatchRAM2.kext has invalid signature; omitting.
Jan 26 15:29:07 localhost com.apple.kextd: ERROR: invalid signature for com.no-one.BrcmPatchRAM2, will not load
The bluetooth adaptor is recognized by OSX, it also sees new devices, but after pairing it will not connect anymore. Tried this with Magic Mouse as well as iPhone. I can see that the broadcom dongle does not get its firmware update (v14 4096) as expected from the output in system.log.
So my question: is there an updated description how to use this on a real MAC ? Or what did i do wrong, would the injector kext work?
Any help would be appreciated.
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
Hi! I can't believe there was a thread about this, I've been trying to get my bluetooth working correctly for over 5 months now and I would really appreciate any help.
My built in wifi and bluetooth device does not work (it is Z87N wifi - shows as a USB device even though it isn't).
