Problem: Unable to turn WiFi on. BT seems fine.

I've tried numerous methods:

  1. Lilu and AirportBrcmFixup installed to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
  2. Per the AirportBrcmFixup README, I also tried the following:
  • Clover Airport Fix + AirportBrcmFixup
  • Clover Airport Fix + AirportBrcmFixup + FakePCIID + FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext
  • AirportBrcmFixup + FakePCIID + FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext

3. FakePCIID + FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi + config-bcm94352-1x0.plist patches
  • Admittedly, I am a bit confused on the notation in the guide as to which patches to use. I am running 10.13.6. The guide says to use 10.12+-BCM94352-fvco-darkvoid and 10.13/10.12 only. Does this mean that I should include the patches that have 10.13 AND 10.12 under MatchOS... or 10.13 OR 10.12? In any case, I've tried many iterations and none have resulted in a working WiFi.
Please see debug attached.

What WiFi model number?

Model: Broadcom BCM4360 1.0 (7.77.37.31.1a9)

I actually just woke my computer from sleep to respond to this thread and I noticed that I had WiFi networks available! But then when I went to click on the icon, it reverted to being off. This is the first time this has happened and I am not sure how either. See screenshot (and excuse my neighbor's network name)

ioreg is missing.

Your kextcache output proves kexts are not installed correctly.
All kexts you need must be installed to the system volume.
Read post #2 of the Clover guide for details:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Yes, I know I read before this thread and I read again. But when the put FakeSMC.kext to S/L, I can't make an update my system. Also, PMheart is saying Lilu and the plugins(AppleALC.kext etc) does not function correctly under S/L. Because of that, I move them to kexts/other. I added FakeSMC to the same place for updating my system correctly.

You are saying move them to S/L. I am so confused what should I do?

These are my primary kexts and using all the time;
FakeSMC, Lilu, AppleALC, and USBInjectAll (and IntelMausiEthernet for ethernet but I am not using ethernet I don't need that kext)

As per FAQ, kexts go to /L/E, not /S/L/E.
Lilu and plugins work just fine from /L/E.
