As far as I understand, the bluetooth stack changed from 10.15.0 to 10.15.1? Regardless, I have not been able to get bluetooth working.

I have tried:

BrcmPatchRAM3-V2.3.0d3.zip
BrcmPatchRam3-V2.5.0

I have installed, what seems like every combination of BrcmPatchRam3 + BrcmFirmware[Repo|Data] + BrcmBluetoothInjector between the two versions installed in either /S/L or /E/C/K/O (EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other). And, naturally, I have attempted to clear kextcache between every change.

The closest I get is getting bluetooth turned on, presumably, but I cannot see or connect to any devices.

Meanwhile, wireless seems fine with just AirportBrcmFixup--only when BrcmPatch* files are not loaded.

Any ideas as to what I should do?

Same problem here. Wireless is OK without Brcm Kexts (only AirportBrcmFixup) and no bluetooth with or without Brcm kexts...

If you have dw 1560 with same Device id 0x216f and VendorID 0x0A5C you can use attached kexts.

otherwise you need some modifications on BrcmPatchRAM2-Info.plist and BrcmBluetoothInjector-Info.plist

read first post carefully;


thanks to @headkaze:wave:

edit: I believe shutdown is mandatory after update the kexts.

Thank you. It turned out I was using an old DSTD.aml which caused issues. Additionally, I couldn't get BrcmPatchRAM2.kext working, but BrcmPatchRAM3.kext works fine for me. It's odd, as I have the same Device ID and VendorID as your card though. Maybe something else in my Clover config.plist is causing this.

Thanks again!

I have this issue too, however, I found that if I place BrcmPatch3.kext, BrcmFirmwareData.kext and BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext in /Library/Extensions with Inject Kexts=Detect in config.plist, it is not working.
(Bluetooth Preference Pane just hanged and not responsive)

If I place the above 3 kexts place in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other with Inject Kexts=Yes, the bluetooth works again.

I've just update 10.15.2 beta (19C39d) and now Bluetooth couldn't connect any device. I put BrcmPatch3.kext, BrcmFirmwareData.kext and BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext in Clover/kexts/other BUT nothing happen, my firmware Bluetooth is v14 c4096. Can help me to solve this problem. Thanks
