I've searched around for this but have not seen a solution to this problem. I read all through the thread "Bluetooth terminal mod" but that doesn't seem to help me.
I have a Mini 10v running 10.6.2. This was installed with Netbook Installer 0.83 and I did check the "Bluetooth fix" box when I installed.
When I first boot the system, Bluetooth works and I can pair my iphone and tether it as well as other stuff like the Apple mightymouse and other BT
toys. However, I can't turn bluetooth "off" from the toolbar menu, it's just always on which isn't generally an issue for me, but I would like to apply the fix to turn it off.
However, on a regular basis bluetooth somehow disappears. The USB device is no longer in the USB stack from a system profiler and the bluetooth menu in the toolbar says "bluetooth unavailable.
The bluetooth module was purchased on ebay and installed in the system under the palm rest when I upgraded my RAM to 2GB. When it is available, I can see the following in the USB device tree:
Model: BCM92045NMD (Broadcom)
PID: 0x2101 = 8449 decimal
VID: 0x0A5C = 2652 decimal (Broadcom)
I've seen lots of stuff on how to enable the bluetooth on/off for the 2046 Broadcom module but nothing for this module. Anyone with experience using this module?
