There are Sierra After that I just followed your instructions and it works perfectly. You could use my kext file right off the download. I followed all the directions and the dongle IOGear one is recognized and is working paired with a Magic Mouse no problem and the Broadcom shows up in the Bluetooth hardware section on the system. Broadcom driver was not loaded in my case. But, there are a ton listed. Was your onboard Bluetooth working before?

Follow-up to my post the other day.
Initially I thought that I would need to edit the kext again. Surprisingly though I can still use my wireless keyboard; hence the actual Bluetooth adapter seems to be functional.
Should I delete one of them?? But looking at most of the comments and other articles online on this topic, it seems that the dongle will override the internal Bluetooth module when you use the dongle.
After a few hours, I was in business with my restored hard drive and no loss of info! Unfortunately, although I can see the dongle in Bluetooth Explorer, when I try to activate it it just turns off Bluetooth.

I follow this steps and I was able to configure USB dongle, and I can connect the trackpad with the internal bluetooth of my Mac Mini of or with the dongle but the problem is that my Magic Trackpad 2 works equals between the two modes with or without the dongle: This confiuration of Mac OS X could be invalid or unsupported.
But no success with the Airdrop on iMac. Can you please confirm these steps are correct? Is there any way to activate it?
