IntelBluetoothFirmware is a Kernel Extension that uploads Intel Wireless Bluetooth Firmware to provide native Bluetooth in macOS. The firmware binary files are coming from the Linux Open Source Project.
After a few months of public testing, it seems like this Kext works well and stable.
Supports macOS 10.12 or higher, supported Device USB IDs are:
- 0x8087, 0x0a2a
- 0x8087, 0x07dc
- 0x8087, 0x0aa7
- 0x8087, 0x0025
- 0x8087, 0x0aaa
- 0x8087, 0x0026
- 0x8087, 0x0029
- 0x8087, 0x0a2b
- 0x8087, 0x0032
Download the latest release, inject the Kext files into the Bootloader and then restart.
Do not inject the Kext files to
/System/Library/Extensions as it may likely break your system.
Driver to upload the firmware.
Codeless Kext that enables open/close switch on the Bluetooth settings panel, not necessary to install.
In case there is something wrong with the driver, please run the following command in Terminal:
log show --last boot | grep IntelFirmware
Save the driver logs, send it to me by opening an issue. If there are no logs, you should probably check your Bootloader, USB, BIOS, etc.
