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. How to add a "Date taken" attribute to picture files

I'm making picture-retouch application.

The picture file that my app generated was not shown on the top of
group "All pictures" at pre-installed "Gallery" app
even if I set Gallery config to "Sort order = Newest first".

I guess the reason is the "Date taken" attribute is not present in my
picture files
because the files from some apps (e.g. default Camera app, Zebra
Paint, etc.)
have "Date taken" attibute and they are sorted and shown correctly.

So, I want to know how to add a "Date taken" attribute to picture
files.
My app has already implemented MediaScannerConnection but
it does not have a way to send "Date taken" information.


Thanks in advance.
