AirPort WiFi-Bluetooth upgrade to support Bluetooth 4.0

Hi I want to upgrade my AirPort WiFi-Bluetooth to support Bluetooth 4.0

Do you know if i can do this with my Mac mini 2010?

Thank you

Update (11/24/2014)

En français: Oui j'ai posté sur votre site puisque j'ai voulu upgrader ma carte wifi/Bluetooth de mon mac mini A1283 Core2Duo 2,53Mhz pour y mettre la carte du macbook pro 2012 BCM94331PCIEBT4CAX

Mais voilà avec 1 peu de bidouillage j'ai pu l'installer et brancher le Ribbon mais je n'ai pas réussi a connecter les 3 atennes J1 J2 J3 donc comme vous me l'avez dit 2 wifi 1 Bluetooth

C'est pour cela que je voulais savoir si les câbles d'antennes était les mêmes entre le mini 2009 et 2010 ?

Puisque d'après les photos sur votre site les câbles du mac mini 2010 s'apparente bien avec ceux du macbook pro 2010 !

English: Yes, I posted on your site because I wanted to upgrade my wireless card / Bluetooth from my mac mini A1283 Core2Duo 2,53Mhz to put map macbook pro 2012 BCM94331PCIEBT4CAX.

But, now with 1 bit of tweaking I was able to install and connect the Ribbon, but I have not managed to connect the 3 atennes D1 D2 D3 so as you have told me 1 2 wifi Bluetooth.

That's why I wanted to know if the antenna cables were the same between 2009 and 2010 mini?

Since according to the pictures on your website cables mac mini 2010 is similar to those of well macbook pro 2010!

French: Nous traitons principalement avec des problèmes de matériel ici sur le blog iFixit. Voici le guide iFixit le remplacement de la carte AirPort Mac mini Model A1283 AirPort/Bluetooth Combo Card Replacement. Le guide est incorrecte, les deux antennes sont similaires pour le WiFi l'autre est pour Bluetooth. Ce est ainsi que vous pouvez obtenir des services MIMO que les deux signaux WiFi sont combinés pour augmenter le débit.

The guide is incorrect, the two similar antennas are for WiFi the the other is for Bluetooth. This is so you can get MIMO services as the two WiFi signals are combined to increase the throughput.

Yes sorry I am French law and not a good English!

So I wanted to say that I posted on this site because I thought it was a software problem, not hardware?

Since my problem is that I can not fix the 3 antennas on the new wireless card! I think this should work for the Mini 2010 with the same type of wireless card? Are we can put a wireless card mac mini 2010 in a 2009?

Yes thank a lot.
