Few days after ... I finally resolve my BT activation problem following a very simple tuto :
I just had to change the ID vendor & product into the IobluetoothFamily.kext as describe in the video.
After a reboot, Bluetooth is working - just go to PrefSys and you will see BT options.
Thanks again Rehab for your patience.
Just received that one off ebay, works wonders OOB. BT, AC Wifi, handoff the whole lot!
Got it from THIS SELLER.
Good find! No edited kexts or patches in Clover config ?
Yeah, well almost...Airdrop, Continuity and the likes work but Handoff seems broken even though everything seems enabled...
Logged out of iCloud on all devices, relogged, turned handoff off and on again, doesn't seem to work even though everything seems to check out....:/

I have a BCM943602CS card+adapter and it never worked either on Sierra or Windows. In Windows it refuses to accept Bootcamp drivers, and MAcOS doesnt even bother using it. I am at my wit's end at this point, as I tried a few other options already and I waited long months for this junk to arrive from China. Can you please help me and tell me which damn card actually works? The one I have is supposed to work OOB, what am I doing wrong?
would it worth trying to fix my bcm4311 working with Sierra? (4311/14e4)
Or no way possible?
Also another trick, what about if you rebrand the firmware?
I have the same problem with my BCM943602CS. It worked perfectly under 10.11.6. And it worked for one or two days unter 10.12.1. I have no Idea what I did, but since of today, I can't activate my wifi anymore (bluetooth still working). It is recognized in the system specifications:
Kartentyp: AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x111)
Firmware-Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (184.108.40.206.1a8)
Can I check if I have a wrong kext in S/L/E? (or anywhere else?)
Thanks for your help.
Did you get this working?
Still not working.
