Broadcom WiFi works, BT doesn’t

For me it's spot on. I used it on all of my ryzen hackintosh. MSI, ASUS, Gigabyte, and Asrock boards was properly mapped. Try to check your kexts too. If you updated to latest version of opencore, it is better to update your kexts used too.
I tried to update to 0.7.1 and 0.7.0 but could get either to work, so I;ve been back on the 0.6.4 of my original instal and that's stable for me.

can you post your current efi that is not booting?
That's probably a good idea.
At this point I've tried so many things that I'm thoroughly confused about several things.
Among others, I'm wondering:
-whether remnants of one 'fix' are hindering other 'fixes'.
-which setting/kext/bootarg/SSDT should be on or off
-whether I should or shouldn't add my broadcom device as a PCIe device in the config.plist (I've tried both)
-about the order of the kext in the plist, for example: where does the USB map go?

In the meantime I'm finding out things have changed in IO registry since the BT pref trashing.
Making a new 'root' map, before attempting to make a new map kext...

try this one. Your config.plist has a lot of entries missing. This is on opencore 0.7.2. SMBIOS is MacPro7,1. Input your serials again.
  • disable 4G Decoding if you have it enabled in your BIOS
  • Redo the apple services guide for your imessage, facetime to work.

Ah thanks!
It'll be very helpful to be able to look at someone else's folder.
BTW, I haven't even bothered with the serials yet. It seems to work ok without them.
iservices is not that important to me at the moment.
BT and TB3 is the main stuff to get working, the rest is optional.

A few questions:

What are the important things you see missing in my config?
I compared them and yes, you to appear to have some more entries here and there, but I've no idea what's pertinent to me and what isn't.
Also, I didn't see an USB map kext. Are you doing it via an SSDT or is it not necessary?

Your config.plist was overdone and some kernel patch was not updated. The one I uploaded is just the basic stuff with updated kext, opencore, and kernel patch.
Let's just say it is close to the dortania guide.

Sorry I just checked it again. I missed the intel ethernet kext. Please use this updated one. Good luck

Thanks,
I tried this one. First it didn't boot (ran all the verbose stuff but ended up with a black screen) but then I ported over my bootlegs and then it booted. I'm still getting a freeze and reboot after a minute or two, so there must be something up with booting from EFI on USB for me.
I'm going to try using another USB stick for my EFIs.
No difference on the BT stuff though. It sees my USB card in the USB system report, but not in the BT section.

Another weird thing.
I decided to try again and use the tool on windows to map the ports, because I'd borrowed a USB-C hub which allowed me to map out my TB3 port.

What seems to have happened is one controller appearing twice. Now I don't know which one to keep or...
We'll see if it works I guess. No time left for today...
