Continuity Activation Tool enables Handoff/Instant Hotspot/AirDrop features on unsupported Macs

In reference to this thread it looks like those of us who have "unsupported" Macs may be in luck.

I will definitely be a bit leery of running the program but hopefully will muster enough courage to do it soon, maybe this weekend.

I thought by "unsupported" you meant Hackintoshes. Oh well.

Wouldn't the modified kext work with Hacks? Assuming the proper Bluetooth and WiFi card.

Never mind. Forgot Apple started using proprietary cards again. I keep thinking these Macs have a mini PCI-E inside.

Hackintoshes aren't unsupported Macs. They're Hacs. Silly rabbit!

Just ordered two of the supported AirPort/Bluetooth (BCM94331PCIEBT4CAX) cards off of ebay. Will be attempting this on a mid-2010 15" MB Pro and a mid-2009 15" MB Pro. I will report back on functionality after trying it. Going to be a couple of weeks as the parts are coming from China. Looks to be doable from everything I have been reading.

Are there any Bluetooth 4.0 cards for an early 2008 Mac Pro?

I think Larry said they were working on a solution.
