BCM943602BAED has a native support in 10.13. No kext or patch should be applied.

Does this card let you to unlock your computer with Apple Watch? Mine is BCM94352z and somehow it doesn't work. So I think to buy another adapter.

It does enable macOS to check the box in system setting but it does not seem like it is working. I am using BCM94360 and Apple Watch Series 3 wifi+cellular

I've read that one should add "dart=0" to the config.plist but I don't see that in your repo, Errrneist. Do you/does anyone know if that is necessary/still recommended or not? Also, if anyone could recommend some Aero-specific BIOS settings I would appreciate the help. Is "Legacy OS" == "Other OS"? Is disabling Intel VMX the same as disabling VT-d, because there IS no VT-d setting in BIOS. If I'm asking stupid questions I take only some of the blame for that. As usual, I'm following the guide and seeing instructions that don't quite match my reality, or that make assumptions about how clever I am.

Hi Errrneist, i have a question regarding the new version of the Aero 15 W. Do you think your guide will also work on the v8 version of this laptop?

Nope. Just for the Kabylake chips.

I think dart=0 has something to do with VT-D, but with VT-D on and I have no problem running VMWare on my Windows, and macOS works perfectly, so I removed the flag. I am not sure how yours went but if you think it might be a VT-D problem then add dart=0 and give it a shot. Not quite sure about your legacyOS thing but for booting just use UEFI and everything will be fine. I remember(BIOS was a story from a long time ago) I only disabled the Secure Boot in the BIOS but nothing else. Make sure you boot with UEFI.
