kybdf2,

Remove any Clover fake-id's and/or dsdt patches for WiFi and give this attachment a try.

Hi darkvoid,

thank you for the kexts you attached for me. I tried them (while disabling all Clover fake id's and patches) but unfortunately it still doesn't work. I believe I got a faulty/non-genuine card from the seller.

Regards,
kybdf2

14e4:4360 is an existing Broadcom BCM4360 chipset card.
Its probably one of the very first revisions.

The kext is supposed to make AirportBrcm4360 load for 14e4:4360.

Does the card work under Windows? If so it has a good chance of working under OS X also.

Only the Bluetooth part works under Windows. The WiFi doesn't work despite installing the appropriate drivers from Boot Camp. The WiFi card has a yellow exclamation point in Device Manager and shows error code 10.

I have already sent the card back to the seller and I will try my luck with a card from a different seller. Thank you anyway for your support. I will report back when I get the other card.

Yes, if it does not work in Windows normally, I indeed send it back.

This works perfectly for my BCM94352Z card

Edit: Actually switched the other patch from Darkvoid #981, which works better

Toleda, Understood.

Since this patch easily allows any country code:

For US: (Tested in 10.0.1 & 10.10.2)

Find: E8 51 0E 00 00 85 C0 74
Replace: 66 C7 06 55 53 90 90 EB
Country code bytes in bold

For US only it's maybe possible to do a single patch across many OS X versions.
I'll check that when I get home.

Update:

The existing patch on the first page overrides the XT or US settings with new settings for that country.
Obviously thats an regulatory breach as-is.

Since this patch does not replicate other region settings under XT, but actually allows the user to set his/her correct country code, it should be the some regulatory compliant.

Maybe prepare some script to generate an users correct country code in the patch?
That way it will be a regulatory compliant patch.
