Yet that device still shows up under system profiler->usb?? And you have it enabled in bios, and the radio hotkey light is lit?

And you have bluetooth enabled in bios, and the radio hotkey light is lit, and you haven't replaced the broadcom drivers or modified their info.plists?
I give up.

Here is a newer version of hid2hci. With this version, you can switch back&forth between HID mode and HCI mode. I've found that occasionally my bluetooth mouse seems to time out when trying to connect and I'm able to switch back to HID then back to HCI to correct things:[codebox]
hid2hci -r hid
verify that the mouse no longer works because we're in HID mode, then
hid2hci -r hci
verify that the mouse works after a second or two
[/codebox]
Use hid2hci --help to see all the switches (I made them compatible with the current bluez version of hid2hci)

I just updated my DellBluetoothHCI so that the 10.6 version loads properly in 64 bit mode (the plist dependencies weren't working right with the old version).

Install the kext i attached to enable turn on and off bluetooth device directly on Mac. Combined with bcc9's DellBluetoothHCI kext. Thanks very much bcc9 for your great kext.

Is it possible to port the other sections of hid2hci as well? I have a Logitech dongle that I'm looking to get working.

I guess this could be handy if the antenna hotkey hasn't been set up to power cycle bluetooth? I notice that your plist only matches on the bluetooth 370. I assume this should work for the other broadcom usb bluetooth devices like with my kext. Maybe you could expand it?

The logitech code in hid2hci has some ioctl code that I don't know how to port. Specifically the HIDIOCINITREPORT ioctl in switch_logitech() looks to be a problem. And HIDIOCSUSAGE in send_report().
I'll put up the source if someone else wants to give it a shot.

you're right! it can work for others bluetooth devices, what needs to do is to change the product id and vendor id.

Took me a bit as I had fat-fingered the 1.0->1.1 changes and had to rewrite them (very unlike me).
I added the source to the post with the hid2hci 1.1 binary, over here

Er, you could match multiple product ids in the plist like I did.

I have a HP Mini 110 with the Dell Trumobile 370 and this works like a charm. Thanks. Only if I could get this started at boot up so that it is always shown. Thanks a lot.

If you install my kext it runs at boot time and will switch dell bluetooth cards to HCI mode automatically.

I installed the ktext but it doesn't come on with booting. I installed Ktext and also Repaired Permissions then rebooted. Turn on, doesn't work. Still have to run the little file in terminal to make it work.
