    When I try using something that connects with bluetooth, like iFile or bluetooth photo share, it says device not supported. Why is this?

    Apple locked out bluetooth to only be able to connect to:
    -Other iPods/iPhones (No other devices)
    -Bluetooth speakers/headphones

    I'm still looking for a Cydia tweak / program, but can't find it. Something like iBlueNova would be great, but obviously it'd need to be updated for 4.1..

    I'm using iFile and Bluetooth Photo Share. I have an iPhone also, I am trying to connect to that, not another device.

    My fault

    iFile doesn't have this feature, it uses a WiFi server (For PC). I could be wrong on that though, I'm using the free version (Not full).

    Bluetooth Photo Share requires Bluetooth Photo Share on both devices I think.

    iFile lets you send files over bluetooth, and I have the app on both my iPod and iPhone.

    The prob is that my iPod tells apps that it has no bluetooth, I don't know why. I know a restore will fix it. But it can just be something I have installed. That is why I am asking, does anyone know what I have to uninstall for it to come back?

    It might be that the app needs to be updated for the iPod Touch 4G. New hardware = app updates. I think iFile transfers are iPod/iPhone to PC/Mac only (don't quote me on this).

    iFile transfers to iPod/iPhone to iPod/iPhone only.
    Let me see if the app is updated, but im 99.99% sure my bluetooth is messed up.

    Edit: last updated Oct 25. I think it is iPod 4G ready.
