    You need to install a proper driver.
    Check station-drivers.com.

    Where I could find this ioreg?
    I've tried to attach .hex from Windows driver and after this, my Sierra doesn't boot anymore.
    Now I'm reinstalling Sierra.

    I've edited the kext file as explained in the guide but didn't work.

    I've added this part in the info.plist, based on what I understood of the guide.

    Code (Text):
    <key>0930_0223</key>
            <dict>
                <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
                <string>com.no-one.BrcmPatchRAM</string>
                <key>DisplayName</key>
                <string>BCM94352Z PCI NGFF WiFi/BT combo card</string>
                <key>FirmwareKey</key>
                <string>BCM20702A1_001.002.014.1443.1457_v5553</string>
                <key>IOClass</key>
                <string>BrcmPatchRAM</string>
                <key>IOMatchCategory</key>
                <string>BrcmPatchRAM</string>
                <key>IOProviderClass</key>
                <string>IOUSBDevice</string>
                <key>idProduct</key>
                <integer>0930</integer>
                <key>idVendor</key>
                <integer>0223</integer>
            </dict>
    I'm felling like this: [​IMG]

    Unfortunately there are no drivers listed on that website for the BCM94360CD, so we seem to have hit a brick wall on that one.

    You need to look for drivers based on product/vendor id.

    Try replacing your BrcmPatchRAM with this one. I can't exactly remember how I did it, but the short of it is this. The card you have (20702B0) is (apparently) an older card. It used to be supported, but fell by the wayside during recent updates. I had to match the ID of something, and then patch the correct segment into the current patchRAM kext.

    Anyway, it worked for me. I've got the exact same Bluetooth as you.

    RehabMan, I know you said the kext should work with High Sierra. Nevertheless my Bluetooth speaker doesn't connect automatically any longer after upgrading. I cannot provide log info, as for some silly reason there is no boot lines in
    system.log. Firmware Version show v14 C5860 for an IOGear GBU521 USB Bluetooth dongle, so it loaded I guess.

    I posted this individually in another thread, as it is most probably not kext related, but wanted to have your confirmation
    to exclude this cause.

    BR, Karlson.
