I managed to start bluetooth on nookie froyo, BT scan is working well(on command line), sometimes it shows devices in the android gui.

The steps : ( use at your own risk and only for comfirmed devs)

Add bluetooth capabilities (HCILL) in kernel
Toggle the WL12XX_RFKILL flag on in evt1a defconfig.
Take the bluetooth firmware (bts file) from gforge.ti ( wl1271 firmware) for froyo pandroid and put it into /system/lib/firmware, alias /lib/firmware to /system/lib/firmware (useful for command line).

boot the kernel
and then
echo 0 >/sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state
echo 1 >/sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state

hciattach -s 115200/dev/ttyS1 texas
hcitool scan must show you your BT devices (if discoverable)

Stability is not yet here, Maybe some problems with UART high speed handling ?

This is very positive, it seems that the wl1271 chip is well connected to omap3621...

I will continue to dig ...

Woah. You, sir, just won TWO free copies of the internets! Can't wait to see where this goes, now that the HW seems to be good!

Forgive my ignorance on the subject but what does this mean? maybe the remote possibility of finally being able to use skype and actually talk with a bluetooth earpiece/headset?

That means, IMHO:

1) The hardware is in fact connected. One less thing wait for the salting crew to find.

2) It is possible bluetooth can now be activated in software, since the devs now know it is not a complete waste of time trying to activate hardware that is present but not live.

3) This guy freakin' rocks!

/me breaks out bt gps dongle to charge it, and runs out to his car to see if the bin on his center dashboard can fit a 7" screen. Yep! Just fits.

I'm definitely looking forward to being able to use a BT mic + A2DP audio. Now that Clockwork recovery is mostly working, it's going to be great when a 2.2/2.3 custom ROM is out there to just flash and get all this stuff working and easily installed/reproducible.
