Bluetooth on Hackintosh

Getting a working bluetooth dongle for Hackintosh seems to still be a bit of black magic. On a Lion 10.7.3, I tried the following two dongles:

  • Sabrent BT-USBT – Automatically recognized; Could connect MagicPad; Multi-finger gestures cause the cursor to freeze for a few seconds
  • Belkin F8T016 – Automatically recognized; Could connect to MagicPad; When coming out of sleep need to replug; Does not wake computer from sleep.

It is possible to get the Belkin F8T016 to show the “Allow Wake” in Bluetooth preferences by editing the IOBluetoothFamily.kext. But this made no difference – the MagicPad could not wake the computer and I still had to replug the dongle after waking from sleep.
