There are two workarounds:
-stream music to a Bluetooth headset while using the Keyboard. The constant music stream keeps the BT connection open. I've tested it and it works.
-install Bluetooth Keyboard Easyconnect. Follow the instructions. Don't loose faith. Play with it for some minutes. It took me five-ten minutes for the first time to get a proper setup. It works! And now I am able to use my keyboard! If I add External Keyboard Helper Pro with which I can remap my keyboard layout I can say that I have made my way to productivity heaven.
Oh I forgot to add that the latter solution works only with stock kernel on KitKat... Or at least I had problems with xluco v1 an haven't tested with v1.1. And I am on xKat v3.0 at the moment.
I hope this isnt a transient thing, but installing BK Easyconnect seems to have solved my BT keyboard disconnect. Bluetooth keyboard has disconnected just once during the past 2 hours of use, and that was during a 10 min idle period. No other"fix" had worked to keep my BT keyboards connectd up until now, and I have tried all of them mentioned on this forum and elsewhere (factory reset, set timeout to never, toggle onscreen keepboard switch, "Null keyboard" app, "bluetooth keepalive" app, remove sd card, and probably more things that I cant remember)! Major props to you and the developer of the app. I was about to give up on this otherwise wonderful tablet. I just hope its not a fluke....I'll keep this thread updated if things change. You might want to post your fix in the 14 page long Bluetooth keyboard disconnect thread here. Im sure others will appreciate it )
Im running hashcheck 4.4.2 ROM and using the Motorola keyboard with the built in cursor stick mouse. Both keyboard and mouse functions are working. No lag, no stutter, no constant disconnects every 5 seconds *** crossing fingers****
I am glad that I could help You out but I have to confess that I was not the wise one. After many attempts I have found the solution by just Googling around with different keyword combinations... And on a foreign language google play comment there was this gem.
Anyway I'll post it on the BT KB thread.
