Maybe you don't have current/latest BrcmPatchRAM kexts installed?
Just double checked:
RehabMan-BrcmPatchRAM-2018-0505.zip
is what I used. Just reinstalled BrcmNonPatchRAM2.kext from that archive and it does not make a difference...
Is there a debug option that tells me why it is not loading the kext?
Thanks again...

BrcmNonPatchRAM2.kext does not apply to your hardware.

Can't turn WiFi on. When I press "Turn Wi-Fi On" nothing happens, it remains off. I followed the "WiFi Injection" section of this guide.

My info: OS X version: 10.14.1 / motherboard model: HM76 / BIOS version: A12 / processor: i3-3227U / graphics: HD4000 / WiFi card: BCM94352HMB.

Open separate thread in appropriate laptop forum. Be sure to attach full "problem reporting" files (use gen_debug.sh) as requested in the FAQ.

No need for FakePCIID-Broadcom-Wifi.kext now? for BCM94352z?

Hi,

the Bluetooth does not work with Mojave. I cannot find any Bluetooth adapter in system information.
I've the BCM94360.

Can someone tell me, please, how to fix it?

I think you mean FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext (no such thing as FakePCIID-Broadcom-Wifi.kext).
And yes, it can be replaced with AirportBrcmFixup.kext (it takes care of certain required patches in KextsToPatch as well).

Thank you very much for your time!

But I have the card FV-T919 which is bluetooth compatible.

I tried with the kext
  • BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext
  • BrcmPatchRAM2.kext
but the bluetooth is just not there.

Any suggestion?

------

EDIT:

It works now!

I installed the kext in Library/Extensions

AirportBrcmFixup.kext
Lilu.kext
BrcmPatchRAM2.kext
BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext

and I deleted

USBInjectAll.kext

from EFI/Clover/kexts/10.14
