Acer E1-572g Whitelist

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

My Laptop model is Acer E1-572g with Insyde Bios 2.17. I have decided to convert it to a Hackintosh due University, everything is stable except the WiFi/BT modul (changed it to BCM94352HMB), WiFi works but BT doesn't, reinstalled windows just to check, and BT doesn't Work either, Even under Ubuntu BT doesn't work.

 

Found out that Acer and many other Laptop manufactures have a whitelist and it's seems to disabling BT. would it be possible for you to remove it? 

 

WiFi/BT module: BCM94352HMB (azurewave aw-ce123h)

Laptop specs:

i7-4500u

RAM: 16GB

SSD:  120GB Kingston 

HDD: 750GB WD

Hi!

I think you need to cover the pin 51 with tape like this:

Hi! 
 

thanks for reply! I will try this out, but as I said I tried reinstalling windows on it, and even there the Bluetooth is not detected by Windows, WiFi does work. I think they have limited certain types of Bluetooth vendors.

Acer never uses any whitelists.

I think pin 51 (W_DISABLE2) for some reason get signal to disable Bluetooth part of your BCM94352HMB.
