Hi,
I searched for the topic in the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 forum but could not find a suitable thread. So I thought I will ask this question in a separate thread.
I want to know if BLE (bluetooth low energy/bluetooth smart) is supported on Galaxy S I9000. I am running SuperNexus build 1.1 ROM (KK 4.4.2). Do I need any separate binaries or is there any flashable zip which will make BLE work on the device (provided the device's bluetooth chip supports BLE) ?

As I found out from other resources, kernel version 3.4 or later is required to support BLE but, all the current kernels for galaxy s are based on the 3.0 series. Is there a 3.4 kernel which supports a KK 4.4.2 ROM on this device ?

If this question is not relevant in this forum, please feel free to move it to the relevant forum and let me know.

Thanks

Semaphore 3.4.0 is the version of the Semaphore kernel's release. The version of Linux kernel on which it is based is 3.0.101 as mentioned in the OP of Semaphore kernel.
