    I have an ASUS BT-400 which is showing up correctly in System Profiler - USB (see screenshot). However, in Blutooth, the MAC address is still 00:00:00:00:00:00 and while the Bluetooth icon is showing up in System Preferences and appears to be working, no devices will get listed. What did I do wrong?

    Solved it! What did the trick was disabling the internal bluetooth module of the GA-Z170N-WIFI by setting the bootflag
    Code (Text):
    uia_exclude=HS08
    so the ASUS BT-400 would be used.

    Yes, if I install it I get a boot loop and can only boot via safe mode (and remove it.)

    Boot verbose to determine why.

    Note: Why do you have a kext patch in config.plist/ACPI/DSDT/Patches?

    The kext patch is a mistake from me. I'm still working things out. When I boot verbose I get something exactly like this:

    Apr 3 19:53:35 lightingdeMacBook-Pro kernel[0]: BrcmPatchRAM2: [0a5c:6412]: device request failed ("0xe00002ed (UNDEFINED)" 0xe00002ed).
    Apr 3 19:53:35 lightingdeMacBook-Pro kernel[0]: BrcmPatchRAM2: [0a5c:6412]: Not responding - Delaying next read.

    These 2 lines appear indefinitely and it doesn't boot at all then.

    It is probably a USB configuration issue. Your profile is not even filled out correctly with your hardware details, so no ideas.

    I've been going over USB over and over again I followed the Guide and am running InjectAll.kext + SSDT + exclusion via bootargs. The bluetooth port is set to 255. What could be the problem?

    -uia_exclude not needed with correctly coded SSDT.
    Your ACPI setup looks messy... abuse/incorrect use of ACPI/DSDT/Fixes... especially FixUSB_1000.
