Hi guys, has anyone lost Bluetooth support? I use native apple device http://www.osxwifi.com/apple-broadc...-bluetooth-4-0-with-adapter-for-pc-hackintosh

But for some reason my keyboard and mouse don't work (Keyboard works when plugged in via USB). Then when I reboot on my Sierra hard drive the same thing happens, yet when I reboot it goes back to normal. High Sierra is a fresh hard drive i cloned my Sierra installation and then updated.

Wouldn't even know where to start as the hardware has always worked natively. Anyone got any pointers?

*Edit could it have anything to do with USB3 etc?*

*Edit 2* Did the initial login and all working? I did remove USBInjectAll but it made no difference (That I think). Now I will try the new High Sierra patch for USB3. But, how can I test USB3 is working correctly?

Mine still works perfectly in 10.13. Which patch are you referring to? The port limit patch? I used usbinjectall with a custom SSDT since ElCap/Sierra
with no issues. If your USB is not right it will create problems with your bluetooth.
I followed section 7 from this post 10.11.0-10.11.3 Skylake Starter Guide to make my SSDT.

I have a very similar situation.

My WiFi and BT were working perfectly on Sierra: Handoff, Airdrop, BT keyboard, BT mouse, BT speaker.
But when I did a clean install to High Sierra, BT had issues, while my WiFi worked for both 2.4 & 5GHz the same as before.

But for bluetooth, almost all functionality stopped, except for a few quirks: My Apple BT keyboard connects now and works, but none of my Apple mice (Magic Mouse 1 & 2); Handoff seems to work by having the Safari or Notes icon on the lower left of the task bar show up, but when clicked it fails to actually hand-it-off (Safari & Notes give loading error); Bose BT speaker that used to easily pair with my Hackintosh does not. I did get Airdrop to work both ways from iPhone to Hackintosh, but takes about 20-60 seconds to "see" the other device you want to send to. But it's hit and miss at best: other device still rarely shows up, when it does the act of sending the file sometimes still fails. It's about a 10% success rate: i.e. Not functional.

Two paired devices are saved in the under Bluetooth Settings: the Apple keyboard that connects, and the Magic Mouse 2 that is listed, but is always "Not Connected" (batteries have been changed and charged, and multiple BT devices have been tried).

(FYI) WiFi/BT card:
Airport Wifi Bluetooth Network Card For MacBook Air 13" A1466 Mid 2013 Early 2015 BCM94360CS2 802.11AC. Chipset:
20702B0. The WiFi/BT is a native Apple device, so I do not know why any of the information from a link in another post would be needed to make this device work. (I did try adding all of the 10.13.x kexts, however.) [The link from RehabMan's other post: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/broadcom-wifi-bluetooth-guide.242423/

Note: It seems like a lot of the information on that linked page is outdated after the "I" Section and are only for non-native WiFi/BT cards. I might be wrong about that, though..

[I attached some screenshots. Note: I had BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext in S/L/E, but read your note about needing to create custom scripts if using with Clover, I believe. So I put BrcmFirmwareData.kext in kexts/Other, instead.]

It's "good" to see that I'm not the only one who lost BT functionality after upgrading to High Sierra. I just wish someone had been able to nail down the sporadic problem that seems to be creeping through the forums...
