USB Bluetooth doesn't work

Recommended Posts

After a successful install of Niresh Mavericks and the 10.9.2 combo upgrade, I tried plugging in my bluetooth USB stick, and it doesn't work.

The Stick is a Sitecom CN-524, Bluetooth 4.0 USB

The 'System Information'  tab in ' About this Mac'  state:

CSR8510 A10:

 

  Productcode: 0x100b

  Fabrikantcode: 0x0a12  (Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd.)

  Versie: 88.91

  Snelheid: Maximaal 12 Mb/sec

  Locatiecode: 0x3d200000 / 2

  Beschikbare stroom (mA): 500

  Vereiste stroom (mA): 100

 
My Hackintosh specs are:
Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.67GHz (Stock)
ATi 4850 HD
1TB Samsung HDD + 320GB Samsung HDD
MoBo is a MSi x58 Platinum

If yes, then try booting with USBBusFix=Yes

Dirk-Willem van Gulik posted a project on GitHub and let's you change default HID mode to HCI. Fixed the problem for this particular (and probably some other CSR8510 A10 based) dongle.
