I bought a ABWB Combo card (BCM94360CD). It is fully recognized on a fresh Sierra drive. WI-FI works AS it should, and Bluetooth finds my phone, and other devices. Handoff is nyt working at tee moment, but I believe this is due to not configured iMessage. I will report back tomorrow after I have the time to go thru P1lgrims fix iMessage guide!

I can confirm that using P1LGRIM's guide fixed continuity and handoff for me :)

did it work for you?
Greetings! First I'd like to thank this amazing community for all the research, testing, and guides on how to get this working. Yesterday I put together my first computer, and my first hackintosh together and everything works...except Handoff/Continuity. But I haven't done much troubleshooting on that end, my graphics card was the main issue.

Out of the box though, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth worked without any meddling around. Connected my Magic Mouse and Keyboard without any problems or extra work on the first boot.

Interesting! Can you confirm that you're using Sierra?

Confirmed. Running 10.12.2
What's your system definition set at?

Here's another question - Does anything think a haswell processor (4790) vs a skylake processor (6700) would have any kind of issue?

FYI - other people were having luck with this card, so I tried again. This time, I changed a setting in my Clover Config:

- "FixAirport" was on, I turned it off. I figured if this FV-T919 had a broadcom card in there, it shouldn't need anything altered.
- cleared out kext cache again
- reboot a couple of times

it works!

I've got handoff, watch unlock, universal clipboard, sms forwarding all working... Although that took a reboot to start working as well...

This card works perfect, didnt have to do anything except remove all the old patches, everything just works! of course I had to get a new motherboard to fit, I had a ITX board so only had one PCIE slot. Apple Watch unlock works!!!
