Same experience. I upgraded from 10.5.7 to 10.5.8 using the combo update package. Installed extensions, etc., with NetBookInstaller 0.8.2 RC4. After applying the mod, I still cannot turn Bluetooth off. Worked fine in 10.5.7.

UPDATE: After sleeping and waking up, the "Turn Bluetooth Off" option re-appeared. Apparently the steps are: 1) edit Info.plist file 2) delete /s/l/e/Extensions.mkext file 3) reboot 4) sleep 5) wake up.
Now I can turn BT off and on from the menu bar icon.

Happy to report this works for 10.5.7 on a Dell Mini9. I don't know whether this was setup using DellEFI or NetBookInstaller.

Successfully paired with my iPod Touch 2G, but no services are available for file transfer or file push.

The next thing I want to try is to pair it with a car audio bluetooth system (Mazda3 2010) . . .
