Hope this is an easy fix. I install Mojave with no problems. Everything works.
1- Bluetooth: ASUS BT-400 Dongle works natively.
2- WiFi: BCM943602CS BCM94360CS2 BCD94331CSAX to PCIe 1x PCI-E X1 adapter

I have App Store, iTunes, iMessage and facetime working. >>>>>>SMBIOS 18,3<<<<<<<
Maybe using an older SMBIOS number might work. The General Tab said allow handoff.


I also notice that the dongle doesn't have an IP address, not sure that's normal.
By the way, I tried continuity Tool. It say that continuity is active then abort installation.

Any help appreciated.
Add some screenshots of some info for reference.

Do you need both Bluetooth and Wi-fi to get handoff to work , I have Bluetooth working don’t need Wi-fi but no handoff
Yes as far as i know yes, you need both. I have a PCI-e card with a native WiFi card and a bluetooth dongle. I found out last night. You need to pair your device before handoff happen.

So I have almost the same build but I don't have bluetooth, iMessage or FaceTime working. I've looked through the forums and still have no luck.

Has anyone found a solution? The BCM943602CS is supposed to work OOB and both WiFi and Bluetooth do but Airdrop only works terribly spotty, as if it had extremely bad reception overall.

Anyone with any updates? Handoff stopped worked fine on High Sierra for myself. It stopped working after Mojave and has not worked since.

I am at BigSur with a Fenvi HB1200 card (BCM94360CS2 chipset) and I have the same problem. Wifi ok, bluetooth all good (sound perfect on my airPods Pro), but there is no way to get HandOff working, bluetooth transfer and AirDrop are great, and I don't know what it can be.

I stole the OpenCore configuration from this gentleman: https://github.com/18520339/Hackintosh-CometLake-Z490-OpenCore

I had fixed it. I believe it was a combo of random kexts and signing out of icloud and resigning in.

But then I sold the hackintosh because its a headache for stuff like this. Hours goes into trying to fix it and many times you never find a fix.

...and signing out of icloud and resigning in.

You gave me an idea, when I come home I will try that iCloud logout / re-login.

The kernel extensions that exist I think are enough, otherwise, neither Bluetooth nor Wifi would work, I say...

And the headaches are very true, I am waiting to read the OpenCore documentation and customize the configuration a bit for my specific hardware, because although it works, some USBs do not work (and it is not a thing of the InjectAll), and also takes a while to load, longer than I would like.
