  • I see no guide.

    Are you saying I need to install an old version of Opencore to get my bluetooth working? That seems whacked.

    I am a Mac Pro 5,1 running Sonoma 14.2.1 with hardware bluetooth upgrade.

    When I turn BT on, I see it switch off again. Opencore is current (1.3?)

  • and where does one fine the OCLP version 0.6.9n? Not on their site.

    Vielen Dank

  • Hello, I have an imac late 2009, and I have installed sonoma with opencore and bluetooth does not work, I wanted to know the steps to install 0.6.9.n. and subsequent patches.

  • Just clear NVRAM. Restart and hold up Option+Commend+P+R, then will bootup shortly, then enjoy bluetooth connection.
