Hi! I noticed recently that the bluetooth of my Librem 5 does not find bluetooth 5 devices anymore (my mi band 4 for example).
redpine_91x: FW Version : 126.96.36.199
redpine_91x: RSI FW Version : 0000.2.1.0.0502
redpine_91x: Driver Version : RS9116.NB0.NL.GNU.LNX.OSD.2.0.0.0024
redpine_91x: Operating mode : 5 [Wi-Fi STA + BT EDR]
I saw elsewhere on the forum and here or here that the Operating mode should be 13 (Wi-Fi STA + BT DUAL). Anybody knows why mine shows 5 and how to set a different mode?
I could not find this info anywhere.
(I’m on Byzantium)
Thanks, according to this (table at page 9), Mode 5 does not use BT LE. Do you have a BT LE device you can test your L5 with (to see if it appears in the device scan)?
Thanks, this worked (it switched the operating mode to 13), but then I had the same problem of the OP in the other thread. Bluetooth just did not work (it was seen by rfkill, but nothing more). I had to revert back to mode 5 now.
Ah I see now that
“Firmware vesion 2.0.0024 broke BLE so we need to disable dual bluetooth support”
I asked on the gitlab issue whether it will ever be supported again
