Cant get the bluetooth module to work

So I think I read the forums and the manual and it says the following should get the bluetooth module working but I can't get it to run

brew install --with-blueshark proxmark3

Re: Cant get the bluetooth module to work

When you run `brew install ...` do you see


(specifically the PLATFORM_EXTRAS bit)?

I _had_ it working (at least showing 'present' instead of 'absent'), but when I tried to update the client (and flash the firmware to match) I ended up with my own problems.
