@p.H: it's working ootb for me too, but if I click on "disable bluetooth", then I can only enable it again with plist editing.

Do you have a BT keyboard or Trackpad? If you connect one of these devices to your BT dongle and add them to favorites in the Bluetooth Preference, you have to reconnect them after a restart. This is the case for me. And it drives me nuts. My laptop (Dell 14R Inspiron) used bcc9's kext to make its internal BT working. And it would not bother me to do this. Don't know whats going on here.

I'm using USB peripherals, so I can't say anything about that.

:D IMO, since you have your BT dongle working, why not go get a magic trackpad and experience the superb multi touch tech :D

Why would the settings be saved in two different .plists I wonder, have you guys seen that?

Powerstate in one and Discoverable in another.

I had the same issue with my Bluetooth dongle after upgrading from Lion to Mountain Lion 10.8.5

 

Setting the controllerpowerstate to 1 has revived my DB-120 dongle, and my Magic Mouse is working again...

I cannot find the Discoverable option anywhere too, all I know it's set in users/xxxx/Library/preferences/ByHost/com.apple.Bluetooth.555....

 

But saw this though - debug Bluetooth via menubar.

 

Press: ctrl+option+shift and click bluetooth in the menubar .....

Maybe this will help us out, don't know  :rolleyes:

Or someone has to dissassemble something like "BluetoothUserAgent-Plugin"

or the "IOBluetooth.framework" perhaps?

No the debug thing does nothing really, besides putting the module off (reset).

@nyolc8 Once "Disable Bluetooth" is clicked the module goes off, but does come on again the second time you click the"Disable Bluetooth", with third click it just stays on, then the debug

option puts it off, if you click "Reset the.....".

The coming 10.8.5 supplemental patch will fix bluetooth dongles, so It will be fixed in 10.9 too.

Unfortunately any of the solutions mentioned above worked for me. I have a CSR usb dongle (0x0001 0x0a12) which should work without any problems.

 

It's always on, no turn off / disable option, but it doesn't see any device, magic mouse, keyboard, headphones...

 

I tried it before updating to 10.8.5 and 10.9 DP8, worked like a charm on 10.8.4.

 

Does anyone here have the same dongle?

No I didn't. Is it possible to upgrade my DP8 install to GM? Or a clean install is required.

I thought so...
 
I'll try it later, I have a lot of work to do, so maybe mav will be in its final version when I have time to try it. :S

I downloaded the supplemental update for 10.8.5 and I and found the iobtfamily. 

 

The only change I found around bluetooth.

A broadcom kext.

With only 2 files, info.plist and versions.plist
