Hi Swhay,

did you try you "Apple Bluetooth Module" hack with Lion GM?

I have a little problem with wake from sleep in Lion.

I can wake my machine with the trackpad but it goes immediately back to sleep.
The display stays in sleep.
The display only wakes from sleep if I click the trackpad two times!

Is there anyone with the same issue?



I'm still on 10.6.8 not sure If I am going with Lion on my "Mac Pro' or not. It runs so good with 10.6.8, I might not bother with Lion...

its seems a little strange here too.
If i press trackpad once it wakeup pc, then i need to move the cursor to upper corner (i use hot corners) to wake display.
If i only press trackpad, my display never wake and after short time go back to sleep

strange

maybe its a lion thing ;)

Update: if i wake with my logitech mouse, its all normal, pc and display wake at same time.

Note: i m using home made BT with original BT module form Macbook pro (no dongle)


It's the same issue here!

Same deal, my fans spin up loud and then it goes back to sleep with one click, but two clicks and it wakes right up... Using an apple bluetooth module to usb cable as well. Posted about this in Lion Post Install forum a few weeks ago, but got no responses.. in the greater scheme of things I guess it doesn't matter much heh.

I love the mouse, and I really want to buy it. Now I use a mighty mouse (wired) because I didn't have bluetooth. Now I found a compatible bluetooth dongle (according to the OSX86 wiki, it's plug and play) and I was wondering if the Magic mouse will work with a external bluetooth dongle on OSX86? If that is the case, I will buy it :).



It probably will, but wake from sleep may not work. You would be better off using my guide to install an Apple Bluetooth module from a Macbook or iMac.

Hi for those of you using Apple bluetooth modules, can you confirm whether or not they work in Windows 7? Are extra drivers even needed? Also specifically does it allow wake from sleep?

Thanks!

I can confirm that my rig "Mac Pro" (see my sig below) does wake from sleep using the Magic mouse, or mini bluetooth keyboard in OS X 10.6.8. I don't run Windows except in VMWare Fusion, so I can't speak to the module working in Windows.

does this apple bluetooth module work in windows? I got it working in OSX but it 's not detected at all in windows. The paired apple keyboard works in windows but i can't add new pairing since in control panel there is no bluetooth control icon.

A lot of people that are using the Apple BT module have this problem. I am sure it works via boot camp on a real Mac, so it's probably a driver issue, I thought there were boot camp drivers floating around the web somewhere, not sure where though.

Is there a trick to extract the bluetooth driver from Boot camp?

I don't know. I never tried it. I just remember seeing something about boot camp drivers on one of the hackintosh forums. You will have to search and see what you find.

Good Luck

guyz, i have a http://www.hamletcom...s/xbtus100.aspx and i want to connect a magic TRACKPAD (i think it's the same with magic mouse, so, if i could connect a magic mouse, i think it could be possible with the trakpad), so, do you think it will works with my bluetooth dongle? does anyone have it?

i can say i'm using Lion with x64 kernel, and, if i connect dongle, all works, system finds bluetooth with stock drivers, and, i can sync my nokia n95 with salling clicker (a program witch transorm my n95 into a false apple remote :) )
so, could it works?


no one? :angel:

You will have to use different commands to backup/flash of course. Find out yourself how to.

I bought a generic CSR dongle off ebay for a cent (!), it sees my magic mouse but it always fails to pair. I put the id's into the iobluetoothfamily.kext and I downloaded the legacybluetooth.kext earlier in this thread and put the id's in that too. Neither worked and it still fails to pair. I've been literally working on this all day. Should I invest in an asus dongle or are there any fixes?

Edit: Picked up an Asus BT211, works perfectly. Had to update firmware in Windows but afterwords it works great so far.

Edit2: Don't buy the Asus BT211, it worked fine at first, but every time I went into Windows and back into OS X it wouldn't work an it would freeze when I put more than 2 fingers on the mouse. So in the end I picked up and IOgear bluetooth adapter and it worked out of the box.

Maxos, IT WORKS!

So I followed your directions, upgraded the firmware, and paired it in ubuntu first, now bluetooth works in CMOS, BIOS, I can actually select my OS at bootlevel without having to plug in the USB keyboard.

D-Link DBT-120 -- heres what I have going -- CMOS/BIOS keyboard control, windows bluetooth (keyboard and mouse) control, mac (keyboard and mouse control), all without having to reconfigure the mouse, keyboard everytime.

The only thing that is still not working is the 'Allow bluetooth devices to wake this computer', if anyone has a clue, please fill me in.

I thought I'll list all the steps I followed (thank you to the original authors) to make it easier for others --

Step 1. Upgrade the DBT-120 firmware -- if your Mac OSX is current, you're SOL because you require tiger or some 10.5 varient to get the Bluetooth Firmware update 1.2 from Apple working. You'll have to use Ubuntu to upgrade the firmware -- directions from Maxos:

Procedure:

1. Download Ubuntu and put it on a usb stick.

2. Boot from it in live mode.

3. Backup the firmware on the bt dongle:

QUOTE
Open a terminal and type: sudo dfutool -d hci0 archive backup.dfu (this will save the file in your home directory), then it will say something like:

CODE
Available devices with DFU support:

1) Bus 008 Device 004: ID 0a12:0001 Interface 2

Press 1.

4. Upgrade the firmware:

QUOTE
In terminal type: sudo dfutool -d hci0 upgrade

Press space and drag the .dfu file to terminal

It will be something like this:
sudo dfutool -d hci0 upgrade '/home/ubuntu/Desktop/GenericCSR.dfu'

Press Enter.

When it shows

CODE
Available devices with DFU support:

1) Bus 008 Device 004: ID 0a12:0001 Interface 2

Choose 1.

It will show something like this:

Filename GenericCSR.dfu
Filesize 994866
Checksum 65085dde (valid)

It should show a message when it is done upgrading the firmware.

I upload the new firmware: GenericCSR.zip, and my backed up firmware. DBT120.zip.

DBT120: http://www.insanelym...p...st&id=89079
GenericCSR: http://www.insanelym...p...st&id=89080

---

Step 2 You'll need to reboot into Ubuntu again, setup the bluetooth and link your keyboard (and mouse).

Step 3. Reboot, and your keyboard should now be functioning under BIOS. Boot into Windows. You'll need to get the HID2HCI stack to get it to work under Windows. Download and install BTINSTALL: http://www.insanelym...p...ost&id=1885 and it will automate the process for you, setting up files and startup options. Alternatively view the thread at http://www.insanelym...showtopic=12293 and follow the directions. Reboot into Windows again, and pair your keyboard, mouse.

Step 4. Reboot into Mac OSX and pair your keyboard, mouse. If you have an apple mouse & keyboard you might have to turn them off and on again before it will work. Remember, always pair Windows first before Mac OSX, so you don't have to keep on repairing after each reboot.

Now only if wake on bluetooth keyboard/mouse would work :(



Thanks for your post! Wouldn't it be possible to just flash your current Firmware on other DBT-120's that don't have the Apple Update?
Not many people have access to older macs..

Guys, you can also use 2x1N4001 diodes in series with the 5V UBS power to get the voltage down to ~3.6V or so. Working for me (see sig)


Hi kmare, I cant find 1N4001 where I live, just the 1N4004 and 1N4007.
Do you think they can work as well as 1N4001 for my purpose??

In theory, all 1N400x have the same electrical behavior in forward bias, right?
And thats the way that we must used, in forward polarization, to step-down the voltage to 3,3v, isn't it?

I await your answer before I ruin everything.

Thanks in advance.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I did not change the IOblutooth.kext

Just reboot and boot into ubuntu again to pair your keyboard or mouse there. After i rebooted i noticed the keyboard was not working in bios so i tried to boot into windows and installed hid2hci tray.

It did show bluetooth is working but i could not tick ''Allow bluetooth devices to find this computer'' cause it claimed i dont have the bt dongle connected so i could not make the apple keyboard to show up and pair.

Thats why i went into ubuntu again to see if it would work there and after i paired there windows would allow me to tick ''Allow bluetooth devices to find this computer'' and then also found apple keyboard and it worked in bios too.

I upload the new firmware: GenericCSR.zip, and my backed up firmware. DBT120.zip.

link to GenericCSR.zip is dead, pls reload it

I just want to say that I finally made it with 2x1N4007 diodes and its working 100% perfect with my Lion OSx86 "Sandy Bridge 1155" Build.

Only 1 question, is there any way to use Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad and Apple Wireless Keyboard in the BIOS of a PC ??
I need to use the Bluetooth stuff during the boot, to select the OS i want to run.

Thanks in advance and sorry for my english.

I know broadcom based bluetooth chips allow for BIOS bluetooth recognition upon boot for certain models. My BT usb adapter for instance allows me to use my bt keyboard in the BIOS once I wake the keyboard while the computer is POSTing.
