@toleda, I've now configured USB correctly following @RehabMan's guide, but still no device found.

Here are my debug files...

Thanks!


Problem solved!
I moved all kexts from E/C/K/O to L/E and now Bluetooth detects all devices fine.

Now I have to solve the sleep problem...

Anyone know what is the best forum for sleep issues on 10.13.6?

@toleda, you're right, now I better understand that some kexts can't be injected...

I started a new thread in General Help about my sleep issue with this same machine... Could you please have a look at my PR files?

Hey guys, first of all thanks for all the great work to make hackintoshing as easy as possible for noobs like me! I'm in IT since 25 years and using Macs since 5 years only, but I've already learned a lot ... although not enough yet it seems ... Anyways, given the soldered-or-glued-in-everything approach of Apple nowadays, Hackintoshing seems the only way forward.

Ok, I'm looking for help because my wifi simply won't turn on. I've got 3 pcs of the BCM94360CS2 and none could be turned on. It also doesn't work in Windows with the Bootcamp drivers (it seems it can be turned on but doesn't find any SSIDs)

Bluetooth is working fine all the time though. Wifi never did.

The only true root cause I can imagine right now is that the adapter isn't working. I bought it from Aliexpress:
And this is how the card looks like: (antennas had been attached of course)

397454


There are lots of coredumps from the broadcom driver in Konsole. I'm also attaching one of them.

When the BRIX is booted I can see that the wifi is turning on briefly for 1 or 2 seconds and then it shuts off.

i followed this guide ([Guide] Gigabyte BRIX using Clover UEFI (GB-BXi5H-4200/GB-BXi5-4570R/GB-BXi7-4770R))

Currently graphics are not accelerated and sound also isn't working with this config but I had these working fine already. The performance of this little box is incredible BTW, just the fan is a little annoying. I hope the fan can be controlled using iStat menu once the sensors are functional...

I have a finicky situation. The wifi card i bought used to work great until yesterday, in the debug i can see it crashes on boot saying found chip of unknown type, airport_brcm43xx start failed, memory leak. I had to disable the wifi and bt in the bios to actually boot properly.
I am dumbfounded as to why it worked before. I even loaded my backup efi/clover settings and same thing happens.
This is my card, supposedly it is native?
  • M.2: BCM94350ZAE/DW1820A - native WiFi/ac and BT4LE
Can anyone help figure this out?

Just installed a Fenvi PV-1919 and at first thought it didn't work in the PCI x16 slot, so after some reading that some people had more success using the PCI x1 slot I tried that and everything worked instantly... but:

After rebooting the wifi stopped working again (it shows up in the menu bar and system info but is turned off and nothing happens when clicking the "Turn on wifi" button). I rebooted four times without changing anything (like an idiot) and suddenly the wifi was enabled again! Right now all features are working perfectly, handoff, airdrop and so on. But I have no idea why it seems to be randomly disabled at boot time. Any tips or similar experiences out there?
