    I'm trying to make Handoff work between my 2009 Mac Pro (upgraded to Wi-fi ac and Bluetooth 4.0 with Apple parts) and my 2011 MacBook Air (used Continuity Activation Tool to enable Handoff). I've got Bluetooh and Wi-fi enabled on both devices, they're connected to the same network and Handoff is enabled in system preferences. How can I get it to work? (the new Airdrop is working)
    Thanks for the help!

    Nothing useful there, I know how it's supposed to work, the problem is that it's not working.

    Handoff is explained in there as between iOS and Mac, not Mac and Mac

    It require an iOS8 device... Mac -> iDevice -> Mac, it sounds an iDevice between 2 Macs may make it work, but I don't have 2 Macs now, can't test it.
