    So I want to get a group of devs together to attempt to open up the bluetooth chip for use on the ipod touch 2g. I've been able to get the menu to appear on settings, but I can't get it to remain active. If you are interested, please reply here or PM me.

    http://code.google.com/p/loosetooth/ - Google Code!

    UPDATE: We have figured out exactly what must be done to get this to work. It's 100% possible. It will require a jailbreak for use.

    UPDATE 2: Asking to beta test will not make you a beta tester. At this point in time, I don't see a need for beta testers.

    UPDATE 3: We have unlocked the chip for complete use. It's now picking up other bluetooth devices, yet it continues to shut off quickly.

    UPDATE 4: Extracted from a special file.

    UPDATE 5: Who got my iPod's bluetooth address?!

    UPDATE 6: Well it comes down to this. We in theory could fully enable bluetooth, yet it would come at a price. Rebooting, even with redsn0w, would not work right. In fact, you couldn't reboot at all. I'm strongly considering continuing development if enough people want it, but it may be best to leave it to apple to enable it. If someone has good experience working with iBoot and the iBSS, please contact me ASAP.

    UPDATE 7: Well, we have found the BTServer, but it really isn't going the way we hoped. I've hexed it and ironically, a lot of the references are to a CSR chip which is not good. If this is TRULY the BT Server, then the project is impossible unless we flashed the chip with a full BCM 4325 firmware, which we wouldn't have access to. Apple clearly intended to exclude full bluetooth use from us, even if we jailbroke. They didn't include the proper files. So, for a fourth time, we will look for a work-around, but I can't say hopeful I am now that I see the BTServer isn't set with the BCM chip.

    UPATE 8: Basically, it's not going to happen. Not from us, not from sweettooth, not from anyone except apple. In the iPhone, a properly configured BTServer file was included for the csr chip. We have that file, it's in the 2.2.1 firmware filesystem. However, it's for a csr chip, not a bcm and they are completely different. SweetTooth will never work on the ipod (well I wouldn't say never, but the odds are like 1 in 1000) because they'd have to write up their own BTServer, which is a ton of work. They'd have to extract a full copy of the bcm2345 firmware (which we can't even get our hands on) and then decrypt all of the files inside, and then figure out to configure it with an ipod touch. THEN write up the BTServer file. All I'm saying is that if this is going to happen, Apple will be the maker. I can't even fathom a work around, so I'm going to stop development. Sorry we got your hopes up guys, but we did our best and we were able to make progress.
