GT1030 High Sierra
Samsung 960 evo 240gb NVME M.2
Generic 3 dollar usb keyboard and mouse ( bought just for installation )

Followed this tutorial to the dot:

Note

If you have an SSD this will auto upgrade you to APFS, you need to follow Shaneees' tutorial here on APFS
First you need apfs.efi files then second step you. Need a efi mounter or mount efi in windows and paste apfs.efi in driverefi and driver64UEFI folder
:You can find apfs.efi on the USB drive in EFI/Clover/driver64UEFI folder. If you're booting Legacy with no UEFI bios then you need to copy apfs.efi to USB/Clover/drivers64 folder. 

First upon u need to download 2 files
1.TransMac
2.AMD HighSierraV3 Image FilesTo begin use Trans

For Download transmac Full version click here TRansmac

For AMD Image Download From AMD-OSX.com Click here


After Finished Downloaded. Next step is restore Image in USB Pendrive

mac to restore the HighSierraV3Unofficial.dmg file to a USB drive, the USB drive needs to be at least 8GBs in size.USB:

1.Ok once you've got TransMac installed and the DMG you want to restore right click on the TransMac icon and Run as Administrator.





Once open click on Tools > Settings and open then Disk Drives tab and change the settings to match the image below,



Now that's done we are ready to restore the image. Locate your USB device in the sidebar of TransMac on the left and right click it then choose, Restore With Disk Image.




Now locate the DMG you choose and open it. This will begin to format the USB and start the restore process.


Once complete you will be able to reboot into the new USB installer. Remember to set the USB as the boot device in the BIOS or press the appropriate key to choose a boot device when booting.

You need to select HighSierraAMD to begin. If you get a Waiting on Root Device message, move the USB to a different port for a few seconds to see if the install continues. If it does not then keep moving ports until it does.

Error Fix. If u have AMD FX Processor so Boot args is : npci=0x2000 USBBusFIx=Yes



COFFEE LAKE HACKINTOSH COMPONENTS GUIDE FOR 2018



Looking to build a new Coffee Lake hackintosh and unsure on what parts to bring together for your for new rig? Here’s some thoughts and recommendations to help you decide.

WHICH COFFEE LAKE CPU FOR HACKINTOSH

Whatever Coffee Lake CPU you buy as long as it’s an i3, i5, i7 is going to work in macOS High Sierra along with Coffee Lake’s UHD 630 integrated graphics to which sleep and wake now work with High Sierra. So with them all working which one you should buy is going depends on what exactly you want to do and how much you want to spend. I’m using an i3-8100 for web browsing, media, an i5-8600k for Photoshop, Illustrator etc, and a overclocked i7-8700k @4.9Ghz for more intensive stuff that can use extra core like FCPX, Xcode and multiple VM’s running all at once. If you overclock in BIOS you will get the same performance boost in macOS without having to do anything extra so an i5-8600k or an i7-8700k could be worth it if you want or need an addition ~15% performance on top of what you already got.

If you’re stuck trying to decide between a i3-8350k and i5-8400 remember macOS is going to favor more cores on the i5-8400 while an i3-8350k is better for gaming on something like Windows. Also in April 2018 Intel released a batch of new CPU’s  to which I do not recommend buying. For an extra $25-50 you only get a minor 0.1-0.2 GHz clock bump to which you would never be able to discern apart in real world performance, nor can you overclock any of the these CPU’s.
  • i3-8300 3.7GHz
  • i5-8500 3.0GHz
  • i5-8600 3.1GHz
COFFEE LAKE INTEGRATED GRAPHICS UHD 630 ON A HACKINTOSH
So in addition to integrated graphics working on Coffee Lake UHD 630 despite no framebuffers  sleep and wake also function reliability in High Sierra unlike Sky Lake/Kaby Lake. Out of the box the Coffee Lake i5 and i7 iGPU is going to work, but the i3 will require a spoof or even better a modification of the Kaby Lake frame buffers for acceleration as the i3 has a different Device ID. After the frame buffers are modified to include the i3, it will perform just as the i5 and i7 do. I’m actually typing this on a fully accelerated i3-8100 . The mod only takes 2 minutes to do, but needs to be done every time macOS is updated to a new version.

The UHD 630 iGPU is a viable alternative for those who don’t want to use a graphics card, but for stability and to avoid graphical glitches with high resolution displays change the SMBIOS to iMac 18,1 in config.plistif you are using the UHD 630 integrated graphics exclusively.


PERFECT COFFEE LAKE MOTHERBOARD FOR HACKINTOSHING
Hackintosh Motherboard Recommendation:
  • DisplayPort – Having a motherboard with DisplayPort is a real nice to have  if you ever plan to use the iGPU weather as your primary display output or as backup just in case your graphics cards stops working in macOS. The reason you would want a motherboard with a DisplayPort or even a motherboard with HDMI 2.0 support on the rear IO is because most cheaper motherboards only come with HDMI 1.4 in which case your  max resolution will be locked at 1080p60 over HDMI 1.4.
  • ALC1220/S1220 Audio Chipset – The audio quality with the 1220 chipset is better then ALC892/ALC887 found on cheaper motherboards. don’t pack enough punch. ALC892/ALC887 isn’t as crisp sounding or is the max volume loud enough in macOS. This will be especially noticeable for headphone users like me who will be  disappointed that even at max volume these cheaper audio chipsets don’t pack enough punch. When when I switch over to a motherboard with ALC1220/S1220 as it’s audio chipset and run macOS, I feel like the volume is at least ~25% louder, loud enough to hurt my ears at max volume. But this isn’t going to be a big deal if you are using external speakers  where you can raise and lower the volume unlike headphones in which case ALC892/ALC887 should be fine for your needs if you don’t want to spend more.
  • WLAN Slot – Part of owning a hackintosh is being able to use WiFi + Bluetooth for your iPhone, iPad and bluetooth devices as well has the Apple Continuity features available on macOS. To get support for these things on a hackintosh you will need to order a motherboard with WiFi and then replace the included card with a hackintosh compatible one and use this guide as a reference to enable it. Even if you don’t have a need for these features you may in the future.
  • Skip MSI  – MSI motherboard have some issues with NVRAM although they can work. I also found MSI to be more sensitive when it comes to sleep then the other three motherboard brands and won’t work if I have certain applications open. For example if I have a prompt popup in my Chrome Web Browser and try to sleep an MSI hackintosh it will immediately wake up and I’ll have to exit that prompt or close Chrome. Since it’s harder to to sleep and keep asleep I prefer the other three brands. If you really like MSI then by all means go with it, however your experience won’t be as smooth as someone with a Gigabyte or ASUS motherboard.
  • Unlocked DVMT – Avoid motherboards that have a locked DVMT or DVMT Pre-Allocated Memory that can’t be set higher than 64MB usually found on barebones budget motherboards like the MSI Z370-Awhich will prevent you from using high resolution displays over the iGPU.
I made a list and narrowed it down based on motherboards I would buy while excluding ones I don’t like or have bad reviews. My personal favorites from this list include: Gigabyte Z370N ITX, Gigabyte Z370 HD3P ATX, Gigabyte Z370 G5, ASUS Z370-G mATX, ASUS Z370-E ATX, ASROCK Z370 Falat1ty ITX

Note: If you need ThunderBolt 3  support in macOS for a sound interface or something else you will need to purchase a specific motherboard with a TB3 Header and a PCIe card. More information can be found here: Hackintosh ThunderBolt 3 Support (Motherboard Requirement)
THE RIGHT GRAPHICS CARD FOR HIGH SIERRA HACKINTOSHING
Better support came for AMD  RX 570/580, Vega 56/64 in 10.13.4 as part of Apple’s support for eGPU enclosures. Note: Vega 56/64 cooling fans may run at excessive speeds under macOS 10.13.4. If you experience this keep QuickTime open in the background and the fan speeds will drop down.
Apple’s 10.13.4+ Recommended Graphics Card List:
  • Sapphire RX 570 Pulse
  • Sapphire RX 580 Pulse
  • Sapphire Vega 56
  • XFX Vega 56
  • Sapphire Vega 64
  • XFX Vega 64
  • AMD Frontier Edition
If you want something cheaper or something else here’s what I can personally recommend.
Hackintosh Recommened Graphics Card List:
  • Gigabyte RX 560 (Tested)
  • Sapphire RX 560 (Tested)
  • XFX RX 580 (Tested)
  • Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+
For Nvidia there’s some issues with lag in High Sierra which can be gotten around by using a a version of NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext that’s patched or by using a script to install lag free versions of Nvidia Web Driver from 10,13,2.
Nvidia Cards:
Pretty much any Nvidia Graphics card can be gotten working macOS with Nvidia’s Web Drivers although they won’t run as well as AMD with it’s native macOS support.
The only Nvidia graphics card I own at the moment is the EVGA GTX 1050 Ti which I like because of it’s smallness and it’s absence of 6-8pin power connector.
MOTHERBOARD + HACKINTOSH COMPATIBLE RAM
Choose your motherboard before you pick your RAM because the RAM module number needs to be on the tested compatibility list of the motherboard you choose. You can find the RAM compatibility list by going to the motherboard product page on the Gigabyte/ASUS/ASRock/MSI brand website it will either be listed on “Support List” or “Memory QVL”
RAM with the same name can have different module numbers with some being compatible and others not. That is exactly what this hackintosher found out on the forums when his first ram kit caused freezing with the reason ending up being that the ram module number he originally purchased wasn’t on the QVL list and simply swapping it out from one that was one that was made the freezing go away.
Recommended DDR4 RAM:
  • Corsair Vengeance
  • G.Skill Ripjaws/TridentZ
HACKINTOSH STORAGE
New to High Sierra is support for third party NVME drives that don’t have 4096 block storage like theSamsung 960 EVO NVME If you purchase an NVME die it’s recommend formatting it for the first time outside the macOS installer because as unallocated storage fresh from the factory it may not get detected.
Popular Hackintosh Solid State Drives:
  • PNY III (Budget)
  • Crucial MX
  • Samsung 860 EVO
  • Samsung 960 EVO NVME
POWER SUPPLY
Some power supplies built earlier than 2012 may exhibit issues with sleep on macOS so it’s good to have a more recent one. From my use case here are some quiet power supplies that I’ve grown to like to which I have and do use in my hackintoshes.
  • EVGA BQ (Budget)
  • EVGA G3 (Quiet)
  • Corsair RMx (Silent)
  • Corsair SFX (Mini)
HACKINTOSH WIFI IN HIGH SIERRA

For motherboards with a WLAN slot you can replace the integrated WiFi card with a DW1560 and follow Enabling Third Party Broadcom WLAN 802.11a/b/g/n WIFI + Bluetooth Cards on a Hackintosh to get WiFi working

How to build a 4K video editing Hackintosh 2017 8th Gen Coffee Lake






macOS is the preferred platform for my workloads, whether it’s writing articles using Byword; composing my novel on Ulysses; managing my Linux servers and systems from Terminal app or working on audio/video editing projects.
However, there was a slight change in my workflow recently. I purchased Panasonic GH5 that shoots in 4K. But my 2013 MacBook Pro can’t handle the 4K workload with multiple audio video layers, color grading and LUTs.
To be able to edit my videos, I custom built a PC, spent $200 on Windows 10 license to run Adobe CC Suite. I was heavily disappointed. No offence to Microsoft and Windows users, but Windows 10 has a lot of serious issues. It’s was a frustrating experience. After trying it for almost a month I gave up.
My only option remained a more powerful Mac.
On December 14, Apple started taking orders for iMac Pro and I am all set to get the maxed out 18-core iMac Pro with 128GB of RAM. But it won’t arrive until the end of February.
What to do? I need a system now.
I turned that Windows 10 PC into an experimental Hackintosh so I can continue to work on my 4K video till my iMac Pro arrives. I was pretty impressed with the performance. I will use it till my system arrive.
If you are in my shoes, waiting for your iMac to arrive and want to give Hackintosh a try, this tutorial will help you. Just keep in mind that even if Apple, supposedly, doesn’t mind Hackintosh for personal use, it’s not in any way an ideal solution. It’s purely for playfulness. Also bear in mind that a few things won’t work, such as iTunes. You can’t play movies and TV shows that you purchase or rent from iTunes Store. If you try, the Hackintosh will freeze, needing a hard reboot. Use Hackintosh only as a stop gap hack and as the final solution.
Once that part is clear, let’s get our hands dirty.


Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.2 Update Guide


The macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 update brings stability, compatibility and security to your “Mac”. This update is light on features and only has improvements to compatibility with usb audio devices, voiceOver navigation for PDF’s in Preivew, Braille in it’s release notes.
The update also probably brings a number of undocumented fixes, improvements and changes to macOS.

10.13.2 Update
High Sierra 10.13.2 has been released along with it updated Nvidia Web Drivers. It’s safe to update to after updating Lilu.kext and apfs.efi if you have an Intel Hackintosh and not using a RX graphics card. For those with the RX 560, RX 570, RX 580. 10.13.2 breaks sleep functionality. For Ryzen users a fresh install of 10.13.2 is required
This update is done a little differently and is not automatically. When the computer reboots you may have to select: Install macOS from “drive_name” to complete the update.



Before updating follow these steps:
1. Update Lilu.kext
Lilu.kext version 1.21 or greater(+) is needed to successfully use High Sierra 10.13.2. Replace Lilu.kext in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other of your mounted partition.
2. Apple File System Users
If you already have a HFS+ drive it wont be converted to APFS if your worried about that.  A new version of apfs.efi is out with 10.13.2 update to the latest version if you have  an APFS formatted drive, unzip it and place it  in EFI/Clover/Drivers64UEFI/
3. Nvidia Web Drivers Update
If you are using a Nvidia graphics card in High Sierra either update your Web Drivers to the latest version or unistall them before installing the High Sierra 13.2 update.
Nvidia 10.13.2 Web Drivers:
Remember to enable SIP  when you install the web drivers and then disable them again after installing.

Intel 8th Gen i5 8400 Hackintosh


After building my first custom PC, I decided to try to Hackintosh it since I was used to MacOS. I had experimented with it years ago but never really had much success.
I spent about two days researching and experimenting, and last night, I finally got it to boot and install.
Hardware specs:
  • MSI Z370 PC Pro
  • Intel Core i5-8400
  • EVGA GTX 1060 6GB
  • Samsung 960 EVO 250GB
  • Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB-3000MHz
What works:
  • iMessage
  • Sound
  • Graphics
  • Ethernet (no wifi card)
  • USB connections
  • All six cores/threads
This was my procedure:
  1. I followed this guide to prepare my Sierra USB: http://hackintosher.com/guides/guide-installing-macos-kabylake-hackintosh-sierra/
  2. Since I'm using a 960 EVO, I needed to patch the correct kexts to install to it. https://pikeralpha.wordpress.com/2016/06/27/nvmefamily-kext-bin-patch-data/
  3. Set BIOS settings according to guide, with PEG as primary graphics and a digital (HDMI or DVI) connection. Don't remove the graphics card like some people say to do.
  4. After getting into the boot loader, I set the FakeCPUID to 0x0906E9 (Kaby Lake). Then I booted with safe mode, verbose mode, Nvidia web drivers, and nv_disable=1.
  5. It should boot to the installer. I had to format the entire SSD (even the Windows 10 partitions) in order to use it.
  6. Install it normally, then boot into the freshly installed OS. Install GeForce web drivers and Clover, then copy the EFI folder from your USB directly to the EFI partition of your SSD.
  7. Add FakeCPUID to config.plist (I guess I could've added earlier).
After this, everything seemed to be working. Cinebench results: https://imgur.com/cOFRtzN
You can get my EFI folder here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1I1htFjZQyOdFhLcDA2eWxzZHc
Edit: there’s one thing that’s glitchy, and it seems to happen to everyone else who has a GTX 1060. After waking from sleep, the screen glitches and flickers until I restart it or use the “hot corners” trick to make the display sleep and wake manually.

Why it matters to you
If you run an old Mac Pro or a Hackintosh, you can now reap the benefits of the latest generation of Nvidia graphics cards.
Nvidia wasn’t kidding or just trying to curry favor when it said it planned to release MacOS-compatible drivers for its latest-generation Pascal graphics cards. Just a few days later, it has followed through on that pledge by debuting the first beta release of drivers that support the new graphics processors (GPU).
The list of Apple systems that can support add-in graphics cards is short and rather antiquated at this point — the last time Apple released an officially supported, upgradeable graphics card system was prior to the 2013 Mac Pro overhaul. However, those users and anyone running a Hackintosh now have the option of more powerful graphics, thanks to the new Pascal drivers.

Until now, the best that those users could hope for is Nvidia’s Maxwell graphics cards, which, while impressive, don’t hold a candle to Pascal in terms of efficiency and raw power. With the new Pascal drivers, they can make use of everything from a GTX 1050 right through to the latest top-of-the-line GPU, the Titan Xp.
Released as part of the WebDriver-378.05.05.05f01 package, the drivers add support for all Pascal cards and can be found at this direct download link, according to 9to5Mac. It could come in handy for MacOS gamers, as well as those who need additional graphical power for rendering 3D effects or video editing.
Alongside older Mac Pro owners and Hackintosh users, there is another group that will likely benefit from this release — those running external graphics cards. Reports of successful implementation with the Thunderbolt-connected Akitio eGPU system have already begun appearing on Reddit, so we may see newer Mac Pros running Pascal graphics cards before long.

Kaby Lake CPUs + 200 Series Motherboards Hackintosh Testing FakeCPUID Trick


 Kaby Lake CPUs + 200 Series Motherboards Hackintosh



Hey everyone, just thought I'd start a new post to discuss this week's freshly released CPUs and motherboards. Intel just released their 7th Generation CPU family called 'Kaby Lake' and manufacturers put out the supporting Socket LGA1151 Z270 and H270 motherboards. This time around Intel has decided that these new 7th Generation (Kaby Lake) CPUs will also work with existing 100 Series motherboards, and that existing 6th Generation (Skylake) CPUs will also work in new 200 Series motherboards. This should make upgrading much easier.

Early Adopter's Buyer's Guide: Kaby Lake CPUs + 200 Series Motherboards


Please note 7th Generation CPUs and 200 Series motherboards are NOT supported natively in macOS. At this point it's too early to determine future compatibility, however preliminary reports are that the CPUs require workarounds to boot.

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/kaby-lake-hd620-working.209598/

The majority of the motherboard manufacturers are using supported Intel i219-V, Realtek 8111H, or Killer E2500 ethernet. Many 200 Series motherboards also have Realtek ALC1220 onboard audio, which has not been tested. The platform also uses the same DDR4 RAM as last generation.

This post will be updated! If you have any information to share please let us know!

EDIT 1: Quick Kaby Lake / 200 Series Guide
Thanks to the early adopters and testers in this thread and around the net, the following info is known.

1.To boot, CPU ID needs to be spoofed. Go into Clover options at boot time and input the Skylake ID as FakeCPUID. Then just add the key and string in the KextandKernelPatches section of Clover's config.plist during post-installation.

Skylake CPUID: 0x0506E3

Code (Text):
...
    <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key>
    <dict>
        <key>FakeCPUID</key>
        <string>0x0506E3</string>
...
With this fix, I used UniBeast and MultiBeast to install in less than 30 min.

2. After successful installation, to get full graphics acceleration for Kaby Lake Intel HD 630, three fixes to Clover's config.plist are necessary. One, Intel Graphics ID must be spoofed to 0x19168086 under /Devices/FakeID/IntelGFX.

Code (Text):
...
        <key>FakeID</key>
        <dict>
            <key>IntelGFX</key>
            <string>0x19168086</string>
...

Two, install FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext to /Library/Extensions using KextBeast. Three, add the 'Skylake Glitch Fix' (AAPL,GfxYTile) to Devices/AddProperties/.

Code (Text):
...
    <key>Devices</key>
    <dict>
        <key>AddProperties</key>
        <array>

How to enable CUDA for Davinci Resolve 12



If you using Hackintosh so after fresh installed OS you need to follow this step first before install Davinci Resolve.

1.After Hackintosh Installation finished do not install nvidia webdriver first You need to find a Cuda driver first for your Compatible GraphicsCard support.

2.Here is Last updated CUDA driver for my GTX Titan X  Mac os Sierra 10.12

3.Download and install CUDA driver then reboot your system when system is start then u can see the cuda driver update notification on your screen it means your cuda is supported by os then now install compatible nvidia web Driver and reboot your system again.

4.Now install davinci resolve please install Davinci Resolve Studio version dont install free version because free version not supporting cuda technology in hackintosh.

5.Now after installed Davinci launch and import your any 2k 4k video it's will be playing smoothly.
for query open the davinci prefrence menu then check video I/O section if u seen your Graphics Card and Cuda driver option then your cuda properly working if u can not see any cuda option then u have some problem with your hackintosh installation.

If any query or trobleshoot then feel free contact me i will resolve your issue.

How to enable Facetime messenger and imessage in Mac Os Sierra 10.12


As for the instructions:
  1. Open CloverConfigurator and mount your EFI
  2. Open your config.plist
  3. In the Rt Variables section, make sure everything is clear.
  4. Go to the SMBIOS section and click on the magic wand. Match the specs options as best you can to your machine. On the two sections that say shake, click a few times to generate a random serial. Click ok.
  5. Go to https://selfsolve.apple.com/ and search for that serial number that was generated. If you get an error message, that is good. It means you aren’t using a serial number assigned to a real Mac. If you don’t get an error, repeat step 4 and search for the new serial instead.
  6. Open terminal and run “uuidgen”.
  7. Copy this UUID and paste it in the “SmUUID” field in the SMBIOS section.
  8. In the “Board Serial Number” field, paste in your system serial number (the one generated by the magic wand) and add 5 random letters and numbers to the end to reach a total of 17 characters.The reason for step 7 and 8 is to keep your ROM (last 12 digits of the UUID that was generated) and MLB (Board Serial Number) values constant and unique on each boot of the OS. If the values change from boot to boot, iMessage will notice and fail to activate and there is potential that Apple will notice and blacklist your UUID, serial, or Apple ID. All Clover-generated ROM and MLB values are automatically blacklisted, as well.
  9. Export config.plist
  10. In terminal, run the commands:
    1. defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
    2. killall Finder
  11. Navigate to /Users/[Username]/Library/Chaches and delete all files or folders beginning with: (if there is nothing there with these file names, that is ok)
    1. com.apple.Messages
    2. com.apple.imfoundation.IMRemoteURLConnectionAgent
  12. Navigate to /Users/[Username]/Library/Preferences and delete all files or folders beginning with: (if there is nothing there with these file names, that is ok)
    1. com.apple.iChat.
    2. com.apple.imagent.
    3. com.apple.imessage.
    4. com.apple.imservice.
  13. Navigate to /Users/[Username]/Library and delete the folder “Messages”(if there is nothing there with that file name, that is ok).
  14. Empty the trash. If it says files are still in use, reboot and empty it immediately upon startup.
  15. Open up Disk Utility, select your OSX partition, and rebuild the permissions. Reboot when this is completed.
  16. The moment of truth: open up iMessage and attempt to sign in. It worked for me on the first try.
  17. If it worked, you can re-hide hidden files and folders with the terminal commands:
    1. defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
    2. killall Finder

Chimera 4.1 Injects Intel HD 5500 Graphics


We got this little unit for testing a few months back, but kernel support was not in OS X. As of OS X 10.10.3, Broadwell CPU and graphics are now supported. MacMan's addition of CPU support and IGPU injection using the new Chimera 4.1 has allowed the Gigabyte Broadwell BRIX to boot perfectly and without any bootloader configuration.

The only issue with this little box is the m.2 slot Intel BT/WIFI card, which unlike mPCIe slots has no existing alternate to swap in. We're thinking that a Broadcom version will come along soon, but for now the Realtek ethernet is the only method of networking.

Capable Apple Mini Cards + PCIe and mini-PCIe Adapters


Yosemite's new Handoff and Continuity features are pretty amazing. This includes making phone calls, picking up where you left off in apps on other Apple devices seamlessly. Unfortunately even the latest USB Bluetooth 4.0 dongles aren't working at all with this feature. Fortunately there are solutions available that make these features work 100%.

The best way to get Handoff and Continuity features activated is using a native Apple mini networking card from a real 2013/2014 Mac with a specially modified PCIe or mini-PCIe Adapter. I've put a few of these together, and confirm that they work really well.




The first one I made was using an older MacBook Air card with the PCIe adapter. It connects both to PCIe slot and to USB hub on the motherboard. The MacBook card only had 2 antenna pins which were too small and too few for the 4 antenna PCIe adapter. I ended up ordering a iMac card which fit perfectly with PCIe adapter's 4 antenna pins. Both cards work fine with the mini-PCIe adapter as well- however you need to make sure your motherboard (I used an ITX with built in mini-PCIe slot) is fully bluetooth powered. If I were to do it again, I'd get the iMac card first, but both cards are identical Broadcom chipsets.


The following screenshots show how the card shows up on a CustoMac. It's a fully native Broadcom BCM43xx wifi with BRCM20702 Bluetooth USB hub.







You can find the adapters and cards readily available on Amazon or eBay, usually shipping from China. This method provides the best cost savings- I was able to make a full unit for under $50. In addition the website osxwifi.com sells the full package- no assembly required. This method costs extra because of the convenience and assurance that the right parts are ordered.

Continuity Activation Tool is an open source script to get Continuity working with some older Macs built in Bluetooth module- this could also work with some Bluetooth 3.0 cards. Check out Github for the latest download of Continuity Activation Tool. Unfortunately this doesn't enable 3rd party USB Bluetooth devices though such as the IOGear Bluetooth dongle. EDIT: Continuity Activation Tool 2.0 works with some Bluetooth 4.0 USB dongles.

If you've ordered or enabled a specific card or adapter, this thread is to list all working and functional WIFI/BT adapters which work with Handoff and Continuity features in OS X Yosemite.

Please provide as much detail as possible including model numbers, photos, and screenshots when listing your card and adapter. Thanks!
