You should not expect to pair your iPhone (it uses BT4LE, not pairing).
@RehabMan Firstly thanks for your bluetooth extensions and your continued support. I'm running a real 2010 Mac Pro 5,1 and purchased an Apple Broadcom BCM94360CD with a mini PCIE adaptor which has USB data power connected to the old BT module location. I am running OSX 10.12.6 and Wifi works OOTB, the BT4.0 doesn't show up at all unless I install your BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext in L/E (using KextEditor.app). Then it shows and has full functionality however whenever I boot up the Mac Pro or reboot my Apple magic mouse needs to be repaired to the BT module each time. So I thought maybe it needs the firmware updated or do you know another way to make the BT4 module remember and see my magic mouse without having to constantly pair the device?
If you can get firmware from Windows, and upload it here, I'll add support for your device in the form of an injector kext (for use with BrcmPatchRAM kexts).
I have suggested it several times here, and no one has followed through.
You need to install the appropriate drivers in Windows, then look at properties of the driver in Device Manager. From there you can get the name of the hex file being used and collect it from \Windows\system32.
Come on guys, what I need to do with the kext and the .hex of windows driver?
What's the connection of this things? The guide is incomplete!!!
What are you trying to accomplish?
I've download all the things (Windows drivers, BrcmPatchRAM, Firmware);
I've ran zlib command.
But after copied the BCM20702A1_001.002.014.1443.1457.zhx what I need to do?
Paste on clover? Where?
And the .kext file, what I need to do with it?
Sorry man, I'm feeling a dummy doing this at my first time...
What bluetooth controller do you have?
Is it already not supported by current BrcmPatchRAM Info.plist?
If your device is unsupported, attach ioreg (because then I can see which device you have) and attach .hex from Windows.
My card is the Broadcom BCM94352Z Dell DW1560 NGFF Wireless-AC 867Mbps WiFi Bluetooth 4.0 Card.
As the guide says in the beginning, I guess this one is compatible.
You didn't read post #827 very carefully.
This is not as easy as it seems... I have Windows 7 X64 on a dual boot in my Mac Pro. Windows installed a generic driver which can't be overwritten by any other driver (I've tried several including Apple's own from BootCamp) so not sure what to do about it now. I guess if Apple did support it natively I wouldn't need any injector however it doesn't seem to be supported natively on Windows either. Weird... the WiFi works OOTB but not the BT 4.0 on OSX or Windows. With the generic driver Windows installed, there is no .hex file to be had from the ioreg. Any other ideas??
