Default [MOD] 4.3 BLE libraries+xml for every ROM (stock or custom)

Here are flashable .zip files to bring BLE support to any tuna (should work on also on toro and toroplus yes) device on any 4.3 ROM. Attached also the restore .zip to restore the files as they were.

Based on the commit, files by manuel naranjo: https://github.com/manuelnaranjo/and...8b806ec0ddaded , so props to him

I've attached also the same files for grouper N7 and manta N10. Don't have the stock files for those, that's why I didn't made any .zips, but feel free to try them.

Test it out on BLE devices and post some feedback. As of the time being Fitbit doesn't sync with Android 4.3 API yet, but it should see the device.

1st August 2013 : Anyone who flashed the previous version, please reflash the version 2 posted below.
1) first flash 4.3_BLE-tunaRESTORE2.zip to revert and delete the wrongly permission file
2) flash 4.3_BLE-tuna2.zip for proper permission file placement

I've made a mistake when making the updater-script, so the .xml permission file was placed into /etc instead of /etc/permissions, sorry for that :|.

24th August 2013 - Since I've surprisingly got a good offer to sell the Galaxy Nexus, user wbedard said he'll make sure to keep this support alive. He compiled GN, N7 flashable JWR66Y zips for BLE , posted here. Thanks !

Of course, it's just an extension of previous Bluetooth.

I flashed this on a Stock 4.3 ROM...I don't think it works.
BLE scanner 0.1 says "no BLE support, just as it did on Stock without this zip.
Can anyone else try this?

You can fimd the BLE Scanner in the 10.2 test build thread on page 29

You're correct, I've made a mistake in the updater-script, so the permission file wasn't in /etc/permissions, that's why the API check for BLE permission failed. It works now, please see #1 post. Thanks for noticing ! Here's the test with https://github.com/tadejkolino/BLECheck .

Great!

What is that app you are using? Seems to be different from BLEscan...
