Enabling Continuity / Handoff

Hello,

I made a deep search on the Internet but I am still not sure whether my Mid-2010 MBP can allow Continuity+Handoff+Airdrop after replacing the wireless card.

My question is clear: is the card BCM94331PCIEBT4CAX compatible with Mid-2010 MacBook Pro or not? Cause all the items I found said to be compatible with MBP 2011 and 2012 but not with 2010.

Would I be able to activate Continuity after replacing my wireless card and modify the kext?

Finally, recommendations about where to get the wireless card at a reasonable price?

Thanks a lot,

Víctor

If your MBP mid 2010 is 13" model, than this wifi card is not compatible with your MBP mid 2010. I've just try to replace this card in my MBP mid 2010 but...the Broadcom card that i've buy is 3mm more height than the original and is impossible to install under the lcd panel.

That's a pity :( don't you know if there is some other wifi card 100% compatible with the 13'' model that will enable Continuity?

Thanks for your answer anyway. Regards.

Compatible with box does not mean - will work with Yosemite. They are two mutually exclusive questions.

I suggest you Can I Upgrade Airport card to get Bluetooth 4.0 and BLE? and the other Yosemite tagged Answers before jumping in on this upgrade.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

Thanks for your answer, but I read that thread before posting my question, cause I didn't find the answer to my Mid-2010 13'' MBP.

I guess it is just not possible to upgrade any hardware to get Continuity on this model, sadly :(

Victor glad to learn you did your research before asking (so many don't they just pop out a Question). I would say a more accurate statement would be: It's possible to upgrade some hardware. Since adventurous users are the ones going where no one has gone before there's still a newly uncovered solutions.' I suggest you revisit this Question again over time - there may yet be a solution for you.
