Default [$$$] Bluetooth HID Drivers for Verizon GT

I will pay for the development if someone can get bluetooth HID drivers working for the Verizon version of the GT. I have an Apple Bluetooth Keyboard I desperately need to work with the Tab. This can be my lightweight emergency station to handle different servers if I had a keyboard to type with.

Thanks!

TekSoft (BlueInput) has been talking about adding a fuller Bluetooth stack to thier keyboard driver to help all of the android devices that don't include the full HID (Droid incredible, VZW Samsung Galaxy Tab). It sounds like they are trying to have something in February. teksoftco.com

Great! Though I still need something a bit more definite and sooner.

Any reason why taking the drivers from a Tmo one and putting them on a Verizon one wouldnt work?

Do they use different bluetooth chipsets?

I saw a tear down of a tab somewhere online I need to find again but a lot of wireless chipsets these days are integrated. Cdma wifi gps and bluetooth are often found in the same piece of hardware. This means we may have very different hardware from our gsm friends. This is to handle issues such as TDMA between bluetooth and wifi and other interferences.

I believe on Tab in Samsung's ROM the Bluetooth keyboard support is in IME app.

For my CM6 build i had to enable BT HID in the kernel. Maybe if someone is building VZW tab kernels+initram fs they can try enabling BT HID in the kernel.

I'll check it out if I have some time this week. It *shouldn't* be hard to enable. No promises or anything though.

I'm willing to donate to get HID working on the VZW tab.

For sure. I would much ratherhave my options on BT keyboards over the silly Samsung dock.
