Thanks, I tried this too. I installed the kext BrcmPatchRAM.kext but don't know where I patch it. If I open the DPCI Manager it reads:
Vendor ID - 14e4 Device ID - 43b1

BUT if I open my System Information and click bluetooth it reads:
Vendor ID: 0x0B05 Product ID: 0x17CF

Which one am I supposed to go off of and how do I do this?

[0b05:17cf] is supported by default in BrcmPatchRAM.

Verify the bluetooth version in the system profile menu.

When I connect my apple wireless keyboard it will not type. (it works on my actual apple macbook)

When I connect my iPhone 6 the iPhone says "Device not supported" and bumps it off.

I've got a strange problem:
I've got a BCM94352HMB (Device ID 43B1). I installed the bcm4352.kext with Kext Utility and rebooted, but every time I want to enable WiFi, it does NOT enable it!
Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 16.43.54.png
If I click on "Turn WiFi On" nothing happens.

Specs:
Asrock Z87E-ITX
Intel Core i5 4570
Nvidia GeForce GT610
Bootloader: Clover (3128)
(boots flawlessly without any args except kext-dev-mode=1)

Last year I had got the same problem with this card with Mavericks (on a Dell XPS 15).I thought it would be an issue with the wireless card, but when I replaced it with a BCM94322HM8L (worked OOTB with Snow Leopard on a Dell Inspiron 11z) the same error occurred. :confused:
