Need some help. My Lenovo U310 El Capitan 11.6 currently using Atheros 9285, BIOS is 65CN99WW whitelisted. Bought BCM94352HMB hoping to upgrade my wifi, and unit will not boot up with this card. Has anyone experience this issue and if so how did you get pass this or direct me to a link? THanks
Flash patched BIOS without whitelist.

I'm having a similar issue, you'll need to provide the troubleshooting info from the guide post.

=== BCM94352 issue | files attached as .zip ===
1. Using clover & FakePCIID kexts, I am able to install and boot OSX with 2.4GHz wifi, however on reboot I'm receiving kernel panics (traced from IO80211 / com.apple.Airport.Brcm43224).

This occurs even when booting from the USB Clover boot loader. I’ve since removed AddDTGP / FixAirport from the config.plist and I can boot but it isn’t loading the FakePCIID kexts (FakePCIID, Broadcom, FWData, PatchRAM2) and I don’t have any wifi/BT.

I tried re-intalling clover from the latest version and manually editing the config.plist to no avail, I was getting kernel panics from something else. So I've reverted back to the files as attached.

2. MacOS 10.11.6 / Lenovo T420 / 1.46 (patched for whitelist removal) / i5 2320m / HD3000 (1600x900 LCD)/ AW-CE123H (bcm94352)

3. I followed the T420 UEFI install guide on InsanelyMac (http://bit.ly/2dSU7ns) then added the FakePCIID & brcm kexts to the kexts/other directory

4-6,8. files attached

FakePCIID kexts should be installed to the system volume.

Oh. My. God.

I was sure I tried that previously, but it must have been something different. Sorry for the noob out. I knew it would be something simple, just wow.
Thanks so much for your ridiculously fast response!!

good god, trying to figure this out is harder than deciphering Davincis Code........:banghead:

What on earth is this? the last time I fixed my wifi & BT was to replace the kext.. I appreciate the time and energy spent on figuring these things out but couldn't the end-user instructions be simplified further :)

For example; On the 2.Patches it says choose one and I wanted to go with the 3rd handoff option because it is the shortest step but when I "see above" I dont see anything relevant and useful regarding to handoff.

Anybody has time and energy to explain this further?

Did you read the book or watch the movie?
Translation:
1. WiFi/BT requirement
2. What the patch does
3. Method to install patch

If not interested in 1 and 2, go directly to step 3.

atheros ar5bxb92 is compatible native mode ? (I think it could work in my DV6875SE)
this work 100% native (chip AR9280) Tested with 10.11.6

Now I just need to make a modification to the list of adapters in the bios. (Error 104) achieved by inserting the adapter to make it work after boot
