I have a Lenovo Thinkpad W520 on 10.12.6. It has a Broadcom wifi/bluetooth combo card, BCM94352, this card https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JY6X9HM/?tag=tonymacx86com-20 . Wifi and bluetooth both work fine. iCloud, iMessage and FaceTime all work fine.

I've never fully gotten handoff to work. at one point I had it working to the point where it would pop up in the dock but would always fail to hand off. Any help on this issue would be great!

attaching a copy of my clover folder less themes.

It is typical. Handoff is very unreliable with non-Apple BT hardware. Especially in some of the latest releases of macOS.

is there any hope of getting it working? It definitely worked better on 10.11

I don't know of any ongoing work regarding the issues.
But I also think those features are not very useful and rather a bunch of gimmicks..., so I'm not really looking for solutions either.

Same here.
I've an HP EliteBook 840 G4, with a BCM94352Z replaced, and everything is working fine, except from handoff. I hope that someone will look into this.

Hi,
I've basically followed this guide:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-hp-probook-elitebook-zbook-using-clover-uefi-hotpatch.232948/

I can tell you what's inside my EFI partition. On CLOVER/drivers64UEFI folder I have these files:
apfs.efi
AppleImageCodec-64.efi
AppleKeyAggregator-64.efi
AppleUITheme-64.efi
DataHubDxe-64.efi
EmuVariableUefi-64.efi
FirmwareVolume-64.efi
FSInject-64.efi
HFSPlus.efi
HPFanReset.efi
OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi
SMCHelper-64.efi
VBoxHfs-64.efi

Then, on CLOVER/kexts/Other:
AppleBacklightInjector.kext
FakeSMC.kext
IntelGraphicsFixup.kext
IntelMausiEthernet.kext
Lilu.kext
RealtekRTL8111.kext
SATA-100-series-unsupported.kext
USBInjectAll.kext
VoodooPS2Controller.kext

On the guide I've linked above, just skip the "Power Management" part and go to "ACPI Configuration" section.
Final note: also remember that you should customize the SMBIOS so you have a unique serial (read the guide), or FaceTime/Messages will not work.

Hope to be helpful

Regards

Good evening everyone I have a bcm94352z on HS 10.13.3, the wifi fuziona well, icloud, facetime, imessage work well. I have a problem on the radius of action of the bluetooth, if I walk away for more than 30cm from the laptop the sound from the BT earphones goes jerky. How can I solve? thank you

Your profile has no laptop hardware details.
Please fix as per FAQ.

And...
No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.
