    What can I do??

    iPhone in the same wifi, bluetooth activated... AirDrop works perfect.

    But when I rigth-click in desktop, for example, in the contextual menu, appear "Improt from iPhone or iPad" but I can't select nothing more...

    Any idea??

    Did you install an Airport 802.11ac/BT 4.0 card or add a BT 4.0 adapter? If so, which one? Continuity Camera is a Continuity feature which requires a specific BT chipset. They will not work with the stock Bluetooth card in the 2009-2012 cMP.

    • In case I can help:

      Same hardware OSXwifi card with wifi a/c and Bluetooth 4.0 (on Mac Pro 5.1 2010), this works for me:
      • Restart and command+R to disable SIP, open terminal and run “csrutil disable”
      • Restart and command+R to enable SIP, open terminal and run “csrutil enable”
      • Start normal session and now besides airdrop I have continuity camera and unlock with apple watch

    Perfect!

    I don't understand why if all is marked as "compatible", why don't work without do this "fix"...

    Because Apple uses a whitelist of which Macs/BT cards are allowed to use Handoff. That command adds your card to the whitelist. This is also one of the things that the Continuity Activation Tool does, but in this case it's far easier to issue that simple terminal command, as that is the only step required on the cMP. You won't get any Handoff features without doing that step, no matter what System Profiler says. All of this info is documented in the BT 4.0 thread here.

    Wow! It works. iPad, iPhone and cMP AND my Apple Watch (1st Gen) all working with Continuity! Brilliant!!

    As per my sig, I'm using a BCM9360CD - I did all the wiring for the mini-PCIe adapter to the MoBo BT connector myself (a couple of years ago in fact now). I've never tried CAT before – thought about it but didn't want to run my cMP with SIP turned off, and didn't;t like some of the stories I was reading from those who had major problems. I'm so glad it's so easy to get this working now. Thanks for those who made it happen.

    Thank you, this helped me as well. I got the same card from osxwifi.com a few years ago. Apple Watch unlock never worked for me but didn't give much importance. Now everything is working.
