[Q] Pairing bluetooth devices to USB bluetooth (not the internal bluetooth)
I have been trying to connect a bluetooth headset to a Class 1 bluetooth USB dongle (connected to my Nexus 7). I wanted to use the Class 1 USB bluetooth instead of the built-in bluetooth for the range. In short, using the Nexus as an bluetooth mp3 player which I don't need to have relatively close all the time.
I followed this forum's rooting guide and successfully unlocked/rooted the Nexus. I plugged the USB bluetooth in via an OTG cable and the light comes on (good start). Using a terminal, dmesg has the USB's details so I'm assuming the kernel has the appropriate module installed at the time. I used the USB Host Controller app and was able to see the device listed.
This is as far as I've been able to go. I don't have hcitools, hciconfig or hiid available to take this further. Another forum provided these 3 for installation however, when I tried running them, an error came up saying libbluetooth.so could not be found.
I'm unaware of an app like Linux's Blueman which could let me choose between bluetooth devices (the USB and internal) so I'll probably need to do this via command line.
Can anyone help me out with this?
