Hello,
i bought the Broadcom BCM43225HMB half size mini PCI-E Wifi (http://www.ebay.de/itm/360753190491?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT) to install it on mi Intel NUC.
I have testet the Wifi card with Windows 8 (Bluetooth and Wifi is working), but on Yosemite the card does not work! I tried to reinstall yosemite with built-in card. No success! :|

Then I tried to get it work with airport_half_mini_details.pdf methods.
At first i tried the Non-Native Airport Methode - aiport_kext_enabler => Did not work
Second try was to edit the kext (replacing 43a0 with 4357) => Did not work
The third method (dsdt edit) did i skipped because i have no dsdt.aml on Extra ( I´ve installed the NUC according to these Instructions - http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-...-core-i5-d54250wyk-v4-yosemite-10-10-4-a.html)
The last Methode did not work, too (airport_ssdt_enabler)

Now i´ve reached i point when I do not know what to do next! Is the card incompatible? :banghead:

BCM94352 requirements:
- FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_BCM94352Z_as_BCM94360CS2.kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Fake-PCI-ID. Install with Kext Wizard to /S/L/E.
- BrcmPatchRAM.kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM. Install with Kext Wizard to /S/L/E.
- 5Ghz patch for WiFi documented here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/network/104850-guide-airport-pcie-half-mini-v2.html
- handoff patch for bluetooth documented here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/network/104850-guide-airport-pcie-half-mini-v2.html

The same kexts can be used for BCM43225HMB although the 5ghz patch is not applicable.

Not recommended. Will not accomplish Airport branding.
This is google top-1 when I googled BCM943225HMB.kext, so making a hint:

If you are using THIS kext, YOU WILL LOSE APPSTORE.

Just don't install ANY kext and add this to your config.plist (10.11+)
Code:
1. ACPI -> DSDT -> Fixes -> AddDTGP_0001=Yes
2. ACPI -> DSDT -> Fixes -> FixAirport_4000=Yes
3. Devices -> FakeID -> WIFI=0x43a014e4

This will activate your wi-fi with this card (no 5ghz, needs binary patch).
If you want BT and AirDrop, just use Rehab's BrcmPatch.
If this didn't work for you or you don't want to use this easy way, please use EMlyDinEsH's work.

Rehab's way is good too. Just don't use LegacyBCM943225HMB patch.
