HOWTO WIP: Enable sync with fitbit on 4.3 BTLE-supported ROMs
For those of us who have a fitbit device, I'm sure I'm not the only one who was first happily surprised by the latest update which promised android mobile sync to devices on 4.3 ROMs with BT 4, only to be disappointed by the fact that it still wouldn't work on my gnex.
Like many others, I'm on paranoid (3.99, with BTLE supported). I can see my fitbit one in the BT settings, but the app stubbornly refuses to sync. Very disappointing!
Actually, I've been trying to spoof the app with temporary build prop changes for some time, but it turns out the answer is surprisingly simple.
DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF THIS DAMAGES YOUR DEVICE.
Here's how I did it:
Edit the file /data/data/com.fitbit.FitbitMobile/shared_prefs/com.fitbit.FitbitMobileBluetoothSupportStatusContr oller.xml
Change the value NOT_SUPPORTED to SUPPORTED.
Save. Close the fitbit app (swipe it out of recents) and open it again.
It looks like the file gets reset after every sync. I'm looking at how I can prevent this. But changing the owner to root and permissions to rw-r----- doesn't stop it.
I'd appreciate if anyone has any suggestions....
