Since I want to stay on the safe side myself, I compiled this 2G SD image that you can boot into and have working bluetooth (keyboard and external audio confirmed working). Of course use at your own risk and such:

go to settings -> wireless & networks
make sure that bluetooth is enabled and then you can explore and pair devices in "bluetooth settings" there.

Range so far is in the area of 13", so usable for a keyboard at least.

Hopefully the author (verygreen) will be able to post here and support users, especially since this is the first public SD build of CM7. I plan on trying this myself tonight, but since i am at work, i cannot do so yet. Any feedback will be great for the author and community.

Have at it folks!

Just threw it on a Lexar Calss 4 8gb, and it ran nice, and discovered my eris via BT, but that's as far as I got. I plan to play more this weekend, but I'm sure everyone else will be playing with it in the next 15 minutes

awesome work! I think i may wait until it's incorporated into the CM7 nightlies as I like running from eMMC rather than SD, but good to see this getting going.!

good to see range up to 13'!

EDIT: whoops noticed it was 13 inches not feet. my bad!

You can just resize the 4th partition to take advantage of the whole card - otherwise it's lost

Sadly I booted it up fine and it looks great but I couldn't get bluetooth to turn on on my Nook. I also couldn't get it to connect to my WPA2 wireless so I had to reboot back to my usual OS. Looks promising, though

Just to dispel before rumors start or people say it doesn't work, based on what I read, it is 13" (inches). Think the original discussion said possibly 1-5 feet. Don't want people to walk 10 feet with their headset on and say there's issues...


GREAT WORK DEVS!
