When the hardware is working, the BCM94360CS2 is very much plug-n-play. No special kexts are needed. No special config.plist configurations.

Is this working for you in Monterey?
Mine stops working after sleep. Waiting for a fix. It was natively supported before Monterey.

My BCM94360CS2 works perfectly in Monterey. No special kexts or configurations needed.

I have a BCM943602CS(3 antennas) with a M.2 NGFF Adapter. In Monterey I have to stop and start bluetooth after wake.

3 antenna means it's probably a BCM94360CS, not CS2.

BCM94360CS2 has two antennas.

I don't know if the BCM94360CS is still fully supported in Monterey.

While we wait for the bluetooth fixes. This is how I got mine working perfectly again.

  1. Install SleepWatcher 2.2.1 from https://www.bernhard-baehr.de/
  2. Edit the rc.wakeup file and append to the end:
Code:
sleep 5
pkill bluetoothd

Now when the computer wakes up from sleep. it will run rc.wakeup script.

:clap:

Hi Yomiro. After I updated to Monterey. My Bluetooth work so bad ( BCM94360 ). After sleep/wake. Magic mouse can move but can not scroll. Sidecar not work after sleep. I know that is problem by bluetooth. I read something like Apple have something change about bluetooth at Monterey.
I read your comment. Now Im trying with ur way. But I dont know how to check SleepWatcher is working. I add your code to rc.wakeup with location at /etc/rc.wakeup :
Code:
sleep 5
pkill bluetoothd

But nothing happen after sleep/wake. Bluetooth is not reset.

Can u show me tutorial, how u can install and work with sleepwatcher

Thanks
