2.1 Bluetooth support still needs work

 Hi!

I've been working with bluetooth trying figure things out using the
BTChatExample. Without editing BTChat has errors that destroy the
functionality. You can only connect the first time, if you connect.
Close the program and doesn't restart bluetooth the program crashes.
Even if you edit out the AccepThread and only focus on client connect,
the program will cast exceptions.

"JBtlSpp.create failed with status FAILED"

when trying to connect. I've looked into the code and referenced it
with the docs (that are based around the ChatExample) and either
bluetooth still needs work or there something missing in the APIs.

I would love to hear from other people trying to use Bluetooth on
Android 2.0++, or try to get a hold of a framework developer to try to
iron out these that I believe are in the framework itself.

2.1 Bluetooth support still needs work

 Hi Anders!

You can search list archives for others with BT-related issues. I for one am
having problems with it too (Droid with 2.0.1 firmware, still waiting for
OTA 2.1 update).

When every other phone/laptop I tried can connect to a device and even my
Droid can connect to is using low-level driver but it's plain impossible
from application level I'd say we have a bug here (full story @

)

 Hello,

Yes I can confirm the same.

I have a solution working for example under the HTC Legend but fails
using the HTC Desire and the failure apears to be at a fairly low
level.

2.1 Bluetooth support still needs work

 I have a similar problem and I suspect a timing problem.  In my case,
I have two seemingly identical devices and my Android Bluetooth app
can connect to one of them but not the other.  Both devices use the
same serial Bluetooth radio and everything else about the two devices
is identical.  I know this because I manufacture the devices.
Although my 2.1 Android app can only connect to one of these, my
Windows Mobile app can connect to both of them with equal ease.  The
only thing  that I can think that might be different is that maybe one
of the two devices takes slightly longer to respond to a connection
request and that the Android software simply gives up too soon.

 I can connect to my PC and send and receive messages using SPP and a
terminal program. But restarting doesn't work and the connect doesn't
always work either:

1. Restarting (connecting) the program doesn't work without restarting
BT (Closing BTStack fails somewhere)
2. Sometimes when connecting, phone reads strings of length -1 and
loops a lot of output at Logcat about this.
3. When trying to connect to a bonded device the device name shows up
as "null". (After a restart of the program, guess it's related to 1.)

Anyone solved this issues?

1. client certificate authentication for ssl/https connection

Hi,

I want to connect to a server using ssl/https connection. During
handshake between client and the server, I want to have server
certificate authentication as well as client certificate
authentication. The server certificate authentication is successful.
But I don't know how to send client certificate to server for
authentication, during the handshake.
Can anybody please provide some tutorial for the same?

Thanks,

2. Non-parallel construction of DatePicker and TimePicker

Well there is no functionality missing in the way it was implemented
but it IS ugly.  And it cost me a couple hours of head scratching and
digging to figure out how to set up a DatePicker after having
successfully set up a TimePicker using setOnTimeChangedListener. As to
making the change myself, I 't have no experience submitting patches
and don't know what it means to star an issue.  And since I have
working code I will probably do what everyone else has done and forget
about it.  But maybe in the interest of design consistency and
aesthetics, Google will dedicate the 15 minutes it would take to
implement DatePicker.setOnDateChangedListener(...).  They do have a
well-tested model to work from, after all.
