I can't make my Bluetooth USB Dongle available on my 6000L (Stock ROM). My BT USB dongle is NOT listed on the support list, it was manufactured by E-Bestand which has a Item Number ESB06, but I don't know the chip version.

I had followed this thread “New Bluetooth Drivers, For Sharp ROMs using 2.4.18 kernel” https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=9995&hl=bluetooth and installing the ipks as following:

Besides, I also installed the following ipks simultaneously:

I had also deleted the file:

When I entered konsole and typed “hciconfig”, it shows:
hci0: Type: USB
BD Address: 00:11:67:05:EE:82 ACL MTU: 678:8 SCO MTU: 48:10
RX bytes:99 acl:0 sco:0 events:13 errors:0
TX bytes:299 acl:0 sco:0 commands:13 errors:0

Question 1: In my understanding, if it could show the messages listed above, it means that this Dongle is recognized by Zaurus, and it should be able to use the BT applications on Zaurus. Does it correct??

Next, I turned my cellphone’s and compuetr’s BT on, and then typed “hcitool scan”, it shows:
# hcitool scan
Scanning ...
Inquiry failed: Connection timed out

It cannot find my cellphone or my computer. As so far, I cannot use any BT applications on my Zaurus 6000L.
Question 2: If my understanding of Question 1 is correct, how to make the BT applications get work on my 6000L??

Please help me to overcome the two questions. Thanks in advance!

Because I can't borrow any powered USB hub from my friends, so I have not test it yet. However, my friend give me another USB dongle (CSR chipest), so I retry this BT dongle with the same IPKs.

This time, my desktop, laptop, and HP PDA could "see" my Zaurus, but my Z still could not see other BT devices by typing hcitool scan and sdptool browse.

Does anyone has further suggestion to check whether or not it is possible to use USB BT dongle (CSR chipest) on the 6000L? Thanks in advance.
