Working USB Bluetooth for Lion (DP3)

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

UPDATE: Also working well with DP4

 

Been using a Belkin USB Bluetooth adapter (P57806uk-:) in Snow Leopard which works well (although it often stops working after sleep, so I stopped using sleep). After installing (Lion DP3) the Bluetooth logo appears in the menu bar but refused to connect my Apple Bluetooth keyboard or trackpad, it would just keep trying and trying... and trying - but would never connect.

 

So I plugged in a different USB adapter (Belkin Mini Bluetooth Adapter at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-Mini-Blueto.../ref=de_a_smtd) and it immediately detected my bluetooth devices and connected without any problems at all.

 

So, if your BT adapter isn't working, try another or the same one above...

For me it's only worked when I "replugged" it after Lion starts. Then I added USBBusFix=Yes to chameleon boot file and it's working without replugging.
