    Before my High sierra upgrade, my 5,1 had the full feature list of continuity, airdrop, Auto Unlock via Apple Watch, Instant hotspot, ETC.

    After High Sierra, those features are mostly all gone except for airdrop which currently works. Continuity is also working partly, as I can receive calls on the 5,1 but cannot handoff, app states or webpages etc.

    I have thought maybe I need to run CAT again but when I do, it states that the features are already active. Maybe something with the updated SIP?

    Bottom line: has anybody gotten Cat to run properly on High Sierra? There are some discussions on the topic the Git page, and around some googles searches but nothing concrete.

    I too lost most CAT features when I upgraded, including Apple Watch unlock which I really miss!
    And yes, CAT does not seem to work in High Sierra currently.

    You could try what most of us do, which is click on the "Report" button and ask the mods to delete your post.
    Has always worked for me.

    Any updates on this now that High Sierra has hit GM?
    While I love the new OS I really miss Apple Watch unlock.

    NightPatch also doesn't seem to have an update for High Sierra which is also a shame.

    i'm in the same camp here. AirDrop seems to work for me for some reason though. any updates? i tried disabling SIP to see if that'd make a difference, but doesn't look like it. i'm perplexed since with it being the correct hardware so you'd think Continuity would be native unless maybe they are blacklisting?

    I am using the iMac card, CAT is required to get all functions work.

    They are whitelisting. And CAT adds the Mac Pro to the whitelist.
    You need to use CAT, or make the changes manually, which is what I do.

    This thread contains a lot of useful info:

    How about re-install HS again on top of your current setup. So make sure all kext / drivers back into their native status but won't clear any user data. And then apply CAT beta again.
