Dies ist für alle die einen Mac haben der zu alt ist für Handoff bei OSX 10.10 Yosemite. Bei mir ging es Mac mini Late 2011 ohne Hardware Update.
Ihr müsst bei GiftHub.inc nachsehen was ihr für euren Mac braucht. Bei manchen benötigt man eine WiRless-Card.

Continuity Activation Tool
This tool makes the necessary changes to enable OS X 10.10 Continuity on compatible hardware. Continuity features activated by this tool include Application Handoff, Instant Hotspot, and Airdrop iOS<->OSX.
Activate continuity: Does a Continuity compatibility check, backups the original Systems kexts, disables a Mac-model blacklist in the Buetooth kext, whitelists the Mac board-id in the Wi-Fi kext.
System diagnostic: Produces a report of the current system parameters influencing Continuity.
Warning: Users should exercise caution when using the Continuity Activation Tool, as it moves around low level files and there's a possibility it could cause problems. A backup is recommended before attempting to install the tool.
Your Mac might need a hardware upgrade as well to be able to work. The table below is based on this guide (forum thread). If you are 100% sure that there are innacuracies, please report it on the thread.
Mac Model Hardware change required first
MacBook Air 2008-2010 New wireless card: BCM94360CS2
MacBook Air mid-2011 No, just the patch
Mac mini 2009-2010 New wireless card
Mac mini mid-2011 No, just the patch
MacBook Pro mid 2009 to late 2011 New wireless card: BCM94331PCIEBT4CAX
iMac 2008-2011 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth card upgrade
MacBook Pro late-2011 New wireless card: BCM94331PCIEBT4CAX
The tool is not currently compatible with BT4 USB Dongles currently available on the market*, it only works with the right Apple wireless hardware.

Fixed the strings utility presence check if the script is run from the command line
Added a disk reparation step at the start of the patching procedure, lowering failure risks on disks with permission issues
Added a verification that sudo is still active before patching

This tool took me many days and nights of research and coding. A small PayPal donation would be much appreciated to help with the maintenance and evolution of the app. Thanks! Donate
