    Those "Problem Reporting" files were before my suggestion to edit BrcmNonPatchRAM2.kext Info.plist.
    And no BrcmNonPatchRAM2.kext attached.

    Any change requires new "Problem Reporting" files.

    You're right, of course. I've attached the full problem report after changes were made.

    The Info.plist you have in BrcmNonPatchRAM2.kext is corrupt.
    Never edit plist files with a text editor. Always use a plist editor such as Xcode or PlistEditPro.

    Hello. I got myself an IOGear GBU521. Am able to pair my BT earphones and get audio but the audio freezes when the mic needs to be used (Siri, Skype, System Preferences>Audio Input). I installed both BRCMFirmwareRepo.kext and BRCMPatchRAM2.kext with kextbeast but the firmware version is still stuck on 4096. Currently running Sierra 10.12.6.

    Attached are the problem reporting files as well as the relevant screenshots! Thanks in advance!

    It is a mistake to allow Google Chrome to hook your USB ports.
    See details in the laptop FAQ.

    Thanks Rehabman. After fixing the corruption in my edited kext the bluetooth now appears to work properly. I am attaching my working edited BrcmNonPatchRam2.kext for posterity in the event anyone who may search for the Azurewave/Foxconn AW-NB290 BCM943225HMB wifi/bluetooth card with vendor and device id 0x0489 0xE030


    I am having peculiar sleep/hibernation patterns, though.

    (1) The system will sleep and wake fine when the bluetooth device is not connected.
    (2) When bluetooth is connected it instant wakes and my screen never wakes.

    I am reading on how to patch my dsdt with your usb instant wake fix for that.

    (3) Strangely when the bluetooth is not connected the system will not shutdown; even while hibernation works. Restart always works.
    (4) When I connect the bluetooth, even though it will not sleep properly, the system will now shutdown with no fuss at all.
    (5) Additionally, to top it all off, the bluetooth does not work at all when connected to a working expansion pci usb card.

    [attached BrcmNonPatchRAM2.kext for AW-NB290]

    Do you mean you cannot pair? Connect to network?
    Try pairing to the device and sending a file.

    After trial and error, I discovered that the BT was in fact connecting to the devices even when I thought it would not. "Connect to network" is not the same as paring and connecting. I could only "connect" to a device that was setup to share bluetooth as a network connection (share 4G etc). Though my experiences were with android devices.

    Did you run through RehabMan's troubleshooting guide for handoff?
