Hi,

I tried to run bluetooth on lubutu but no success so far.

I installed blueman bluetooth manager but it does not recognize any new device (no adapter).

Somebody has any hint/how to?

cheers

Adam

Hi herbat . You need to copy the bluetooth hcd file and hciattach it first.

Here're the instructions (run with root):

  1. 1. Mount Android system partition and copy out the AP6335 hcd file:
  2. # mount Android system partition
  3. mount /dev/block/mtd/by-name/system /mnt
  4. # mkdir for compatiblity
  5. mkdir -p /system/vendor/firmware
  6. # copy required hcd file
  7. cp /mnt/vendor/firmware/bcm4339a0.hcd /system/vendor/firmware/
  8. # umount
  9. umount /mnt

  10. 2. Install the neccessary bluetooth packages:
  11. apt-get install --no-install-recommends brcm-patchram-plus-nexus7 bluetooth ussp-push



  12. 3. Power on the bluetooth and do initializaion:
  13. # Power on
  14. cat /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/type   # bluetooth
  15. echo 1 > /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state

  16. # Upload hcd file
  17. brcm_patchram_plus -d --patchram /system/vendor/firmware/bcm4339a0.hcd --baudrate 1500000 --enable_lpm --enable_hci --no2bytes /dev/ttyS0 &



  18. 4. Wait some time until the brcm_patchram_plus settles down, then use bluez related commands to test:
  19. root@firefly:~# hciconfig -a
  20. hci0:        Type: BR/EDR  Bus: UART
  21.         BD Address: 43:39:00:00:1F:AC  ACL MTU: 1021:8  SCO MTU: 64:1
  22.         UP RUNNING PSCAN
  23.         RX bytes:1186 acl:0 sco:0 events:39 errors:0
  24.         TX bytes:956 acl:0 sco:0 commands:39 errors:0
  25.         Features: 0xbf 0xfe 0xcf 0xfe 0xdb 0xff 0x7b 0x87
  26.         Packet type: DM1 DM3 DM5 DH1 DH3 DH5 HV1 HV2 HV3
  27.         Link policy: RSWITCH SNIFF
  28.         Link mode: SLAVE ACCEPT
  29.         Name: 'firefly-0'
  30.         Class: 0x600100
  31.         Service Classes: Audio, Telephony
  32.         Device Class: Computer, Uncategorized
  33.         HCI Version: 4.0 (0x6)  Revision: 0x10c
  34.         LMP Version: 4.0 (0x6)  Subversion: 0x6109
  35.         Manufacturer: Broadcom Corporation (15)

  36. hci0 should be up and running now.
  37. 5. Shutdown bluetooth.
  38. echo 0 > /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state
Copy the code

@busyby : thanks for answer


I came with your procedure. Adapter is working as you can see

  1. hci0:        Type: BR/EDR  Bus: UART
  2. BD Address: 43:39:00:00:1F:AC  ACL MTU: 1021:8  SCO MTU: 64:1
  3. UP RUNNING PSCAN ISCAN
  4. RX bytes:647 acl:0 sco:0 events:36 errors:0
  5. TX bytes:1429 acl:0 sco:0 commands:36 errors:0
  6. Features: 0xbf 0xfe 0xcf 0xfe 0xdb 0xff 0x7b 0x87
  7. Packet type: DM1 DM3 DM5 DH1 DH3 DH5 HV1 HV2 HV3
  8. Link policy: RSWITCH SNIFF
  9. Link mode: SLAVE ACCEPT
  10. Name: 'firefly-0'
  11. Class: 0x700100
  12. Service Classes: Object Transfer, Audio, Telephony
  13. Device Class: Computer, Uncategorized
  14. HCI Version: 4.0 (0x6)  Revision: 0x10c
  15. LMP Version: 4.0 (0x6)  Subversion: 0x6109
  16. Manufacturer: Broadcom Corporation (15)
Copy the code

Unfortunately, after adding device it came with an error with paring procedure.

I am using Blueman applet 1.23 for managing my bluetooth devices.

For example, It recognized my phone (samsung galaxt s5)  but it sends wrong paring codes (wrong numbers) to paring device.

This same problem I have with bluetooth keyborad (Rapoo T Series)

@herbat

I tried blueman, and it paired my phone well with correct code display.


I install it with:

sudo apt-get install blueman notify-osd


Maybe you need to launch the blueman-applet in a terminal window to see detailed log.
