Bluetooth Class Zero

Bluetooth Class Zero


This application enables discovery and pairing with bluetooth devices that report their Class of Device (CoD) code as 0x00 (zero). Currently there is a bug in the Broadcom bluetooth stack that, for some reason, intentionally skips discovery of all such devices.

Tested as working on LG Optimus One and HTC Desire HD only. Confirmed not to work on Samsung Galaxy S. Please comment to confirm whether it works on other phones.

Needs to support App2SD. [HTC Sensation XE running Android 2.3.4]

It worked on my Desire HD, but then messed up Wireless and Network settings, so that when BT is on it crashes when I try and go into it. The problem with this is that you can't then set the device to 'discoverable', or change any of the settings. The only fix I could see was to factory reset the phone. Still, a worthwhile piece os software fro those many people who are frustrated by vendors such as Samsung and HTC not taking the class zero problem seriously and continually tell in guthat there is nothing wrong with their software. There is! It works seemlessly (ie Wireless and Network settings are fine) on a Samsung Galaxy Player 50, in case anyone is interested. Many thanks to the people at Zorn for doing this.

Pure Genius! I use the FrSky RC radio with a bluetooth module to show telemetry info on my phone with FrSky dashboard app. One day my phone would not see the module anymore but other phones would connect just fine. I have been trying to fix this for months now. I installed other ROMs etc, nothing would work. Your app fixed this in an instant. While the system settings do not show connection, the telemetry app detects bluetooth and connects perfect again. Thank you very very much!! Raymond Lohengrin
