I've heard this from so many people (BT problems and Monterey) that it's certainly not a glitch in your setup. What we need is a whole new thread in Monterey Desktop Support for people going through BT problems in Monterey.

Main point for potential upgraders: If you rely on BT for your everyday workflow or even Professional CustoMac use....

Do Not Upgrade to Monterey yet !

yeah, i couldnt get my Intel BT working, though it was alright in Big Sur, so i just plug in a Cambridge Silicon Image CSR8510 a10 chip dongle, add BlueTool kext and it works now without probs. i'm using Clover. By the way if you have an Intel BT that was normally working in Big Sur and you used intelbluetoothfirmware kext and bluetooth injector kext and your updated Monterey boots for years now, just remove injector kext, it helped me get back normal boot time and removed very strange thing such as only NVME ssd appears on desktop and in system, but sata ssd wasnt seen anywhere exempt system , not on desktop nor in the disk utility.

@chrispe @trs96 - Thanks for the confirmation, to me Monterey's release seems very rushed, unfinished and still deep in the Beta stage. Yes I still have a BS Disk that can be Hot swopped at a moments notice as you observed Monterey is not so reliable as a daily driver for important tasks.

I've not seen any BT testing yet on the new M1 Pro/Max laptops reviewed on Youtube. What I could guess happened is that the changes to the BT stack Apple made were mostly for the new Apple Silicon laptops. That is what messed things up for those running hacks with various different BT chipsets.

Yes my thoughts exactly!!! I am sure I have read somewhere genuine Intel Macs are facing the same dilemma as Hacks.

As far as I can tell, natively supported Wi-Fi/Bluetooth cards (i.e. those pulled from real Macs or the BCM94360NG) work fine. It's just the ones that had been relying on BrcmPatchRAM that are having problems. I have never used Bluetooth PAN so I have no point of reference to compare if there are any differences. But AirDrop seems to be working better in Monterey than it ever has before.

BlueToolFixup seems to work for some in making cards that required BrcmPatchRAM work. I could not get it to work with my DW1560. I also have not seen and confirmations that Continuity features work correctly with it.

On Monterey and it is very stable, my setup is working really well. Had a lot of trouble going to OC 0.7.4, special thanks to esafeddie for his help, now on OC 0.7.5 and all working very well.
