Hello everybody, I have a question does someone know where I can find a Image with working bluetooth? I tried the raspbian, ubuntu and some other images, but on now I got bluetooth to work.
I can scan for devices but connecting, doesn’t work, it always fails (I tried, phones, 2 keyboards, headphones [some BLE so “normal”]). I even tried to build bluez new, downgrade bluez, I
tried other Bluetooth dongles, I even wanted to rebuild the Image and / or kernel(but that was to complicated)
Since I’m a total hardware and Linux noob, just trying random Post from the internet, the have more or less the same Error message didn’t solve the issue. Can someone help?
I would even settle for a good manual how to create an own Image, and pointers which drivers I would need and how to configure.
I know it’s alot to ask, but I invested / wasted weeks, and I’m thinking on throwing away the board and just settling for a RaspberryPiZero. Since I don’t see / find a solution.
Post the following output files from the Image you can scan other bt devices:
- uname -ra > kernel.txt
- dmesg > bootlog.txt
- hcitool devi > bt.txt
And also post the " Error message" you receive.
Thanks for the Fast Response here are the 3 files.
I’m not sure which of my debugging Images this one is, but I think this is the image (2018-07-07-raspbian-jessie-preview-bpi-m2z-sd-emmc.img) upgraded.
(the wireless connection seem a bit slow, but work)
Would you know may a distro that works best wit Banana Pi Zero M2?
The Error Message does say much but here it is:

I don’t see anything wrong with your bluetooth despite the error. BPI has bt working with keyboard. What device is that?
There is this minimalist image that works with phones at least: https://github.com/avafinger/bananapi-zero-ubuntu-base-minimal
If you want to build your own Image you can try Armbian.
Thank you for your help. I will checkout the github link you sent, and see if I can set it up. It sounds exactly like the image i was looking for.
btw.: the Keyboards I tried was some noname keyboard and one gen2 apple Keyboard.
I am also confirming avaf images that state bluetooth support do work, they successfully pair with my keyboards.
