    Finally got this to work for ME this week. I have an early 2011 13" MBP (A1278) running on the latest updates of OSX High Sierra. I used the the Continuity activation tool because I couldn't delete the IO80211Family kext extension. I copied and modified the IO80211 file on my desktop, deleted the extension from the library and ran Kext Drop, I reset my Mac and it worked flawlessly with my iPhone 7 plus and iPad Air 2.

    Update (15 Dec 2017) - MacOS 10.13.2 update disables Handoff, but I was able get Handoff/continuity working again by repeating the steps. So far this guide still works on the latest updates to MacOS.

    Update (09 Jan 2018) - MacOS 10.13.2 Supplemental Update - I just installed this latest security update and good news the update did not disable continuity on my machine.

    Download latest beta of Continuity Activation Tool
    When the trigger was started activation tool, a message ran outafter, then must be disabled SIP.
    Reboot the Mac and hold down Command + R keys simultaneously after you hear the startup chime, this will boot OS X into Recovery Mode. OS X Utilities -> terminal and following command into the terminal - csrutil disable
    After I disabled SIP running activation tool correctly. Everything works as it does with tablet and iPhone.
