Hey there,

since my recent BCM was outdated after i upgraded to Sierra i got myself a
PCI-e Card with the BCM 94360 CD Module.

Now my WiFi works out of the Box, AirDrop is finally listed in the Finder-Bar, but my Bluetooth isn't working and AirDrop on my iPhone can't find my hackintosh system. Although it can communicate flawlessly with my Macbook Pro. So my questions are:

1. Is there any kext i have to consider when it comes to Bluetooth? I thought it should work OOTB ?!
2. How can i identify if the bluetooth isn't broken on my card ? It looks used.
3. If not, what is the best current Bluetooth Dongle for OS X Sierra ?
4. Any idea if AirDrop isn't working just because of the corrupt Bluetooth ?


Thanks for your help!
