Re: Raspbian buster bluetooth failure after 2019.09.16 update

@uilfut - thanks for the second set of captures. The differences between the two are subtle - it's going to take me a while to understand what's happening. In the meantime I've located my K380 at the bottom of the box (ahem) and, strangely, it is working for me. Can you confirm the firmware version...

And can you confirm that you're on a Pi 4? It helps to have all the information in one place.

Are you able to run a btmon capture?

Code: Select all

$ sudo btmon -w k380.bts
# Ctrl-C when you're done - perhaps try to connect twice
(emailed to you, yes Pi4b)

Re: Raspbian buster bluetooth failure after 2019.09.16 update

dave_p, uilfut - we won't be reverting the latest firmware, so we're going to have to gather enough information to get Cypress to fix it. Can you please give me details of your configuration, particularly the devices you are trying to connect and the symptoms you see. If you can capture btmon logs ...

Reverting to the +rpt4 version of the firmware fixes the issue.
Could you let me know how you did this, please? Thanks!
I figured this out, thanks anyway.

How do I roll back bluetooth firmware update

The latest firmware update (firmware-brcm80211 1:20190114-1+rpt5) broke my bluetooth keyboard (Logitech K380).

I'm told if I revert to the previous firmware (+rpt4) this issue will go away.

Could someone explain what I need to do to achieve this, please?

Thanks in advance

Re: Raspbian buster bluetooth failure after 2019.09.16 update

Yes broken for me again now :(

Logitech K380 keyboard will connect, then disconnect (exact same behaviour as before the fix 3 months ago)

Hoping someone can fix this again :)

I just confirmed: uninstalling BlueZ also masks and deletes hciuart.service. You're going to need to (re)install pi-bluetooth.

Code: Select all

sudo apt install pi-bluetooth 
This did it... thank you both!

Thanks PhilE, that doesn't do the trick unfortunately.

I've removed and added it to the task bar, and reinstalled lxplug-bluetooth, and bluez (again). Weird.

One last thing (hope you don't mind me posting here) - while trying to make it work I broke the task bar icon / bluetooth manager. I can't seem to relaunch it. Is it blueman, can you tell me? Or bluez? I uninstalled everything when the keyboard wasn't working in desperation... and can't remember wha...

Yes the script starts the browser.

So I just "export DISPLAY=:0.0" and then run my script? This is great if so. Thanks again...
