Guys, any stable fix or idea for that ?

I have t-mo version, but the issue is mostly same - my Mazda says pairing failed after kitkat update. And actually it's still possible to connect phone to a car (even if that is not well paired). But only using one of profiles - phone or media, but not both at the same time (that worked flawlessly on JB) and each time that's random - today i was able to use only media, but not as phone.

I have S3 which is still on JB and it's still works pretty well with a same car.

I tried resetting, re-uploading, but issue is still there.

I am on stock 4.2.2 rooted.
Any help would be great.

Things I have done:
Master reset
Pair and unpaired
Odin back to stock and re rooted

+1 on this problem. I too have this problem. I'll keep watching this place. It looks like I may have to reflash back to stock and do a full factory reset to see if that fixes it. I did that when coming from Jelly Bean... went full stock... rooted that... and now on Josh's KitKat Killer. Had the problem on stock 4.4 but it seems to have gotten worse now with the custom ROM.

Omate TRUESMART that FINALLY showed up! Now. If all the functionality that was promised would show up... not holding my breath.

Personally for the op I would head to the T-Mobile section because I wouldn't want you to get suggestions and something happen to your phone by flashing not made for your model. As for post #2 try to reflash the nab stock via odin. Then reroot....I'm on Sacs ROM and I have no Bluetooth issues I pair with my stereo every time I get in the car and stream audio.

Just chiming in with my observations on my SGS2 (i777). No troubles rooted with ShoStock JB ROM. Then, when I upgraded to KitKat, on both Render's CM and PacMan ROMs, connections are hit and miss. 50% of the time I get a connection (no media) and have to disconnect, turn off bluetooth on the phone, turn it back on, sometimes multiple times before I get a phone and media connection.

I'm trying to figure out if it's KitKat itself, or the individual ROM.

anybody found a solution on this? I just bought a new 2014 Lexus GS 350 and can't transfer contacts over. It says transfer fails. I can make calls and stream music but no contacts. Pretty upsetting. At the dealer they tried with other phones and worked fine seems to be my phone. They have tried with GS4 before and worked but was was before the 4.4.2 update.
