For anyone having issues patching the kext files to enable handoff,

I have pre-patched MacBook Air Mid-2011 kexts. Do not use these for any other model, or you risk messing up your WiFi and bluetooth.

Download MBA Mid-2011 Patched Kexts

http://www.filedropper.com/handoff-mba-mid-2011

Enable Kext Dev Mode

Code:
sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"
Use KextDrop to install the downloaded kext files

reload the system prelinked kexts


Code:
sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel

sudo kextcache -system-caches
reboot.

Enjoy!

So can I just download and apply this file via terminal? I have a 2011 MBA 4,2.

Hi,

Enable the kext dev mode and reboot,

then install the kexts with kextdrop, run the two terminal commands, and then reboot.

handoff should be working then.

So how come with this method we can use general modded files and it apparently works, but with the other method we have to edit the files and put in our 'specific' MAC- ID number in the file?

If you could explain it would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Still not working???

Hi br1nary,

Thanks for providing the files. I have the same late 2011 MBA version 4,2 and I applied your files following your steps and I'm still not able to see my iPhone 6 as a wifi network option.

When I goto System Info, I do see the following:

<SNIP>
Bluetooth Low Energy Supported: Yes
Handoff Supported: Yes
Instant Hotspot Supported: Yes
<SNIP>
LMP Version: 0x6


Any ideas about why I can't connect my Mac to my iPhone? I appreciate any help or insight.

Thanks!
