Hi, so I am trying to get WiFi to work on my Broadcam 43224 chip, but nothing works. I used Kext Utility to install the AtherosWifiInjection, IO82.. and BCM 5952 kexts but nothing works. I have also manually put the kexts in my Extensions folder and rebooted but nothing happens. Please help!

No sense in using Atheros solutions with BCM.

WiFi: All you need is FakePCIID.kext + FakePCIID_BCM94352Z_as_BCM94360CS2.kext.

Always install kexts with a kext installer such as Kext Wizard.
