I've succeded in installing blueZ to use Ambicom BT2000E CF adaptor and managed to get online with GPRS using Sony Ericsson T600. Following the How-to document and taking advantage of ssh connection to my Z over usb-net. It wasn't that much difficult.

However, the only way currently to get online via BT GPRS is to click the dummy Irda connection I've ceated and heavily edited.

The Bluetooth network profile/ applet does not work on SL-6000. When installed you can see the screens to create a BT dial-up connection but when you click the connect icon on the taskbar the list contains an empty item which is supposed to be the bluetooth icon. Playing with the config files I've managed to move the Bluetooth connection as a Dial-up option but then when clicked to connect I get "plugin not found" error.

Does anybody have managed to see a bluetooth icon in the task bar and is there any fancy bluetooth GUI for 6000 apart from dial-upconnection? And is there anyone able to use bluetooth network applet succesfully?

PS: default Sharp ROM supplied.

There is no Bluetooth GUI. I'm still trying to find time and motivation to work on one.

I'd be interested to see what Bluetooth software Sharp has supplied on the 6000W. Does anyone know if it includes support for beaming from the PIM apps via Bluetooth instead of IR? Does it have a graphical application for discovering other devices and setting up dialup connections to phones etc?

I wish I could afford a SL-6000W myself sad.gif

The SL-6000 model names have misleaded me a lot. I've got my Z from amazon and it was named SL-6000 only. without a letter. The docs that came with it says SL-6000N/SL-6000L and there's no distinction between L and N. Not a clue in the docs. However I was hoping to buy whatever the model name is for WiFi + BT, but I didn't even come across any SL-6000 being sold olnline with BT. So I checked out forums and decided to get AmbiCom BT 2000 E which I've managet to install. Anyhow I've managed to get Z 6000 + Ambicom BT CF at a very good price.

Does other ROMs have bluetooth gui? OpenZaurus? I wish to give it a try if I can find any success about SL-6000 and OpenZaurus. I'm pretty happy with Opera and Hancom office. Both Linux apps and are included in the price I've already paid.

Here is a table of the differences between the 6000 models:

But yes, even online retailers seem to get confused.

The 6000W is only available from Japan. www.pricejapan.com seem to have it (as long as they have not got the model name wrong either).

OZ has a Bluetooth GUI of sorts, but last time I looked at it, it was not complete either. Also going off other forum postings, people have had trouble getting Opera and Hancom office working properly so I would check that out fully before trying OZ.

Yes. I'm pretty happy with Opera and Hancom office. I'd love to check OZ for 6000 but if only I can have the time to invest.

I hate nerds showing their bluetooth icon in their PocketPC's as if it was a holy thing biggrin.gif Having obex push and recv would be lovely.

What makes me move away from Sharp's rom is that I found it very confusing. For instance while I was trying to hack network connection gui to use the bluetooth dial-up and pan applet I've seen many modules that did not show up in the GUI. For instancethere is a chat file template for GPRS. I'm sure I haven't installed it it has a very old date bu the file is not used with the pair of pppd call scripts that are present. Alsothere are files and configs for VPN but they didn't how up in the gui Iwonder if they are related with LAN access. I found Sharp rom to be a bit dirty in that sense. From the outside you don't see it but a root ssh shell shows it all.

Also there is a libobex.so but I doubt if it camefrom bluez or not. It'd be lovely to have bluetooth file and vcard exchange.

Does affix have advantage over bluez in Z? Any thoughts?

Affix development for the Z has been pretty much dead for over a year now, not that BlueZ has been progressing much (might change soon though).

If you search the forums, someone has got some command line Obex tools working with BlueZ recently.

Thanks. You helped saving my time for searching affix and sl 6000 stuff. I'll look for obex thread in the forums. If you intend to do some development I'd love tohelp. Don't know how at the moment but I'll try to figure out how to develop on Z soon : )
