Hi all,

I were looking for something like this for a long time now and couldn't find anything so I wrote one myself ;). It's using device TOS6205, and you can check if you have one by typing:

ioreg -lw0 | grep TOS6205

It's my first driver and event first application for Mac OS, so don't be mad if this brakes anything on your computer:).


Top work for a first effort. This works perfectly on my toshiba nb200 with 10.0 snow leopard. Unfortunately it's not working on 10.6.5 (which I need to make my wifi work!)
Any ideas what's broken it in newer versions?

Thanks,
Andrew

For me it works perfectly under SL 10.6.7 64bit (Toshiba Satellite X200-20F) . Try to verify the kernel didn't switch from 32 to 64 mode after updating.

Hey!

Again, big thanks for your great kext! I'm currently working on my Lion install, and apparently the kext don't load. I'm not very sure but the bluetooth don't work.

Do you plan to compile it for 10.7?

OK, I managed to make it work under 10.7 (fresh install)
After some investigation, the kext seems to be loaded at startup, but maybe it can't detect hardware, or something like that.

I unloaded, and reloaded it manually and tada! it works!

I don't know if I'll need to do this again at next startup.

You guys can try this in the mean time.

EDIT: Works like a charm, no need to do anything.

Hi all

Here's a modified version (I called it version 2) of the ToshibaBluetooth driver compiled for Lion (32 & 64 bits).
It's basically the same, but just a few sanity checks were added as well as basic Power Management, also I modified
the info.plist to match TOS6205 device.

The zip file contains the source code as well as the kexts, let me know if it works and/or if any problems arise.

I have a Qosmio X505 running Lion (10.7.1) and works like a charm.

Hello everybody,

I'm sorry to say that this kext doesn't work on my satellite X200-213 running mac os x 10.7.2 64 bits.

Do you think I should rebuild it?

[EDIT]:

I don't really understand what happened on my computer.

Here his what I've done:

-Bluetooth doesn't work on Mac OC
-I reboot on Windows 7 (where the bluetooth works)
-I reboot on Mac OS and the bluetooth works
-I reboot on Mac OS and the bluetooth doesn't work.

If someone has a solution, I take it!

Version 1 of the bluetooth kext works with ML 10.8.2 as well. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite L500-164.
With this last piece of software i have everything up and running :)

Maybe i'll try the 2nd version of the bluetooth kext, but for now i'm fine.

Thx!
