Re: Bluetooth Android API Changes and Permissions causing port lockout and battery drain

Bumpity Bump.

 

Found the cause for the problems. /data/user_de/0/com.android.bluetooth/shared_pref

is missing bluetooth profile configurations.

Now all I need to do is find where in the framework the code is and submit a patch to Sony or Google

Re: Bluetooth Android API Changes and Permissions causing port lockout and battery drain

There is a workaround, but you have to be sure not to turn off your bluetooth on your phone...or you will have to do the procedure again.

First, open smart connect app on your phone. you will find the bluetooth accessory in the list.

keep pressing on it, then remove.

Second, clear all your apps in memory (I use fast reboot app) then close all apps.

Third, open smart connect one more time, press on the plus to add accessory..this will open bluetooth settings...pair your device.

 

The accessory will work now....hopefully....until you turn off bluetooth....it will be corrupted...again. It works for me..(I use wireless headset pro mw1 and RM-X7bt car accessory).

Re: Bluetooth Android API Changes and Permissions causing port lockout and battery drain

UPDATED: 12OCT2017

I'm sure google will change things again if they haven't already. But if the latest patch 32.4.A.1.54 did not include the Bluetooth Security Patches - there will be another change to the BT API no doubt.

There's a security Vulnerability to do with Bluetooth discovered in Sept. It's probably the junk I ran in to ... anyhoo... I'm busy compiling the new changes for 32.4.A.1.54  on the Z5C for a rebuild of the TWRP Recovery.

Adios.
