Patching the EEPROM of the network card is obviously difficult and might not be always possible.

But what if we are able to change the values read from the EEPROM before OS X processes them?
This is something we are already doing with OS-X-FakePCIID for values coming from the PCI configuration register.

The SPROM can be found on the SSB of the card and looks roughly like this:

I haven't tried seeing if the calls can be intercepted between the IOPCIDevice and the Broadcom driver, but it might be possible.

Using a pcie 9287 card that worked in 10.9 but in 10.10, fails to wake with system. Requires wifi in network control panel to be turned off then on again to wake.


Ordered brcm94331 for this from china, but could be awhile.

Hello,

I have followed all of the recommended steps for getting my Z97i-PLUS bluetooth working but it is having issues...

  1. Wifi works fine. Bluetooth is recognized and I can search for devices. I can even connect NON apple devices to my bluetooth. But when I connect my apple wireless keyboard it doesn't type. At all. And when I connect my iPhone 6 my iPhone says "Device not supported"... "Forget Device".
  2. OS X 10.10 / Asus Z97i-PLUS / Haswell 4790K i7 / GTX760 SC 4GB
  3. This guide was used.
  4. Attached IOJones file in zip
  5. Console/All Messages/kernel airport - select/Save Selection As: What specifically do you want me to save here?
  6. Screen shots attached
  7. Attached these as well

If you could shed some light on this that would be really helpful!
:)

Oh also I cannot get my intel 4600 integrated graphics to allow for screen mirroring via airplay and have a number of syntax errors in my dsdt which
i have not edited at all.

AirPlay Mirroring, dsdt errors; off topic.

I have bcm4352.kext and BTFirmwareUploader.kext installed. I also have them in my EFI partition.

I then tried the suggested steps to patch in this section of this post:
BCM94352 5 GHz/BT Handoff (10.10 and newer)

As the title indicates, that is the patch for BT handoff. To enable BT see
BCM94352 BT4 (10.10 and newer, 10.9 and newer), Post #1.
