    Handoff, hotspot, WiFi, AirDrop all off-topic here. This thread is only about firmware upload with BrcmPatchRAM.

    Hi Rehabman,

    I have OSX10.11.5 on Asrock Z170 Gaming I7 and I have installed it with the help of this thread (although this thread is for the similar model Z170 Gaming ITX with bundled BCM94352): https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...e-skylake-fatal1ty-z170-gaming-itx-ac.180383/

    I have installed a BCM94352HMB into the Mini PCI-E slot.
    WLAN is working perfect.
    I have placed "BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext" and "BrcmPatchRAM2.kext" into /L/E and Bluetooth-Symbol is active, but the search for Bluetooth-devices doesn't find any devices.
    There is an excerpt from the syslog (2 times of restart):

    One time the firmware-upgrade was successful, the second time not needed, but in all 2 cases there is the message "uploadFirmware could not open the device".
    What I'm doing wrong?

    I have attached a zip with ioreg, console-commands and CLOVER-folder.

    There is also an image of System->Information showing BT is there:

    Hope you can have a look at it.

    Regards mimo

    Looks normal. May be a hardware problem or antenna issue...

    Mh, I have no external antenna, thought the card have internal antennas as the WIFI is also working w/o external antenna?
    Sure it has U-FL antenna connectors...
    Do I need external antenna for BT?

    Regards mimo
