Looking at Apple's BroadcomUSBBluetoothHCIController.kext, bcm2035 is not listed.

(This kext is located in: /S/L/E/IOBluetoothFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns)

Only 2045/2046 are supported.

What you could try is to get the Product ID and Vendor ID off your USB BT adapter. Manually add that into into the info.plist in the kext in the following format, and see what happen.

Code:
		<key>Dell Bluetooth 2.1 Module via USB I/F</key>
		<dict>
			<key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
			<string>com.apple.driver.BroadcomUSBBluetoothHCIController</string>
			<key>IOClass</key>
			<string>Broadcom2045FamilyUSBBluetoothHCIController</string>
			<key>IOProviderClass</key>
			<string>IOUSBDevice</string>
			<key>IOProviderMergeProperties</key>
			<dict>
				<key>ClassicMustNotSeize</key>
				<true/>
			</dict>
			<key>idProduct</key>
			<integer>688</integer>
			<key>idVendor</key>
			<integer>16700</integer>
		</dict>
Since I don't' know the diff between the two controllers, it may work or it may not.

Try reading this thread first.

Bluetooth Terminal Mod

After the mod, don't forget to run UpdateExtra in the /Extra folder, that will regenerate your Extensions.mkext

If you still having problem, come back here, and let me know.
