This is for those who are having problems connecting Desire with a Bluetooth Keyboard, in my case a Chinese mini Bluetooth keyboard (model PA-BK03- $ 27.00).
Things you need:
1) Rooted Desire (in my case OpenDesire 1.3b)
2) 3 files (hidd, hcitool and hciconfig) from code google
3) Recovery console (unrevoked for example)
4) And a Bluetooth keyboard…
The basic principle is to copy these 3 files to /system/xbin and set the permissions to 755, and than, after you enable Bluetooth on the phone and on the device, run the follow command:
#hcitool scan
Scanning ...
DC:2C:26:B3:C6:46 Bluetooth Mini Keyboard
Than
# hidd --connect DC:2C:26:B3:C6:46 (use your own MAC Address)
After it, you mini keyboard will stop blinking the blue led….TADA….is done!
I just cook the blu_sign.zip that contains the 3 files…you can use your recovery console apply it. And I recommend to use gscript lite to write the “hidd --connect” command and shortcut it in your home screen.
All the credits goes to…. Erin at i-miss-erin blogspot
And please I’m not a developer just curious and I hope that some noble developer make an fancy apk better than this.

Would it be possible to pair a BT mouse this way, too?

The ps3 controller isn't a hid device, but afaik a wii nunchuck is.

They did get ps3 controllers working on PC though , so it might be possible.

That keyboard looks nice btw. If it had one of them weird nipple things that old laptops used as a mouse I'd deffinately invest in one.

When i try to pair my apple magic mouse it shows:

Can't create HID control channel: Connection refused

Where can/must I enter 0000 as pairing-code? Isn't this required? Now I try my Apple BT Keyboard :)
