    I can't find any way to enable bluetooth keyboard support with my iPod Touch 2g. Most of the firmware restrictions that Apple is placing on older devices are based on supposedly insufficient hardware. Most of this is marketing bullsh*t anyways, but disabling bluetooth keyboard support is taking it too far. The multitasking and wallpaper switches were found early, but I can find nothing at all relating to bluetooth keyboards, and redsn0w doesn't yet flip the switch for you. I have searched and Googled and emailed MuscleNerd and browsed my iPod's file system, but my efforts are null.

    Help?

    Also, thanks to an earlier thread that I just found by clayton2, the information for bluetooth keyboard support is likely found in the third generation devices in these locations.

    If someone with a Touch 3g or iPhone 3G is willing, could you please copy and paste the entire text of the specified file here, or email the file to me? If you will email it, please send it to bennerm.mail@gmail.com. Thanks.

    Well, I unfortunately can't help as I have a 3G iPod touch which is not jailbreakable yet.

    But I can tell you that apple is bullsh*ting about some devices not capable for some features. For instance the homescreen background, winterboard could enable that for you and it runs perfectly. But apple say different. I think apple are going to stop supporting all Old devices soon.

    Well I guess once a jailbreak is out for the 3rd gen iPod touch, iPhone 3GS, or iPhone 4 is out I'll kickstart this question again.

    Really? In my N72AP.plist, the whole thing is clear text (well as clear as you're gonna get with coding). Do you have iTunes set to encrypt your iPod backup? That could be the issue.

    Thanks, but I already know about those. The point is, I want to have the native stuff. I have already tried the BTstack keyboard demo and it works great, so I will be purchasing and using the full version if I can't get the native support to work.

    Ok. BTstack keyboard is not to much of a bother versus native because to connect a keyboard natively you have to:
    1. Open Settings
    2. General
    3. Bluetooth
    4. Pair

    BTstack Keyboard:
    1. Open BTstack
    2. Pair

    Also if you SBSettings you can turn bluetooth on or off when ever
