HowTo upgrade Bluetooth 2.1 (board BCM92046MD) to 4.0

Hi,

I have an iMAC 8.1 early 2008 A1224

with OS X : El Capitan (10.11.5)

Bluetooth config. :

- LMP version : 2.1 (0x4)

- Bluetooth Low Energy Supported: No

- Fabricant : Broadcom (carte* : BCM92046MD)

More Specif.

I'd like to upgrade the Bluetooth 2.1 (board: BCM92046MD) to 4.0

(HowTo replacement page)

Can I replace my Bluetooth board by more recent one? (any references?)

Any special things to do if such replacement is possible?

Many thanks to all,

Etchaf.
