    Write an open-source stack for it.
    /thread
    Actually, Jerry, is that the solution? Because some posts out there speculate that, yes, there's an API issue, but others state that its a driver or binaries issue. Which is it? And where does "an open-source stack" fall in that spectrum -- somewhere else? Can you help us get to the bottom of it?

    One of the recent posts to the code.android thread linked to this github project -- is this a possible starting point? https://github.com/android-btle/framework

    Personally, I'm just going to purchase a phone with Bluetooth 4.0 enabled.

    Sounds like the smart way out. Your phone is supposed to do what you want. It's not supposed to be a chore.

    So do we think that once the source code ofr 4.2 drops that this may be closer to happening as the Nexus 4 has BT4.0 (BLE) support.

    Does it? In the code.android thread, several folks are commenting that 4.2 doesn't appear to have BLE either. Got a source?

    I think I may have jumped the gun on this, I thought I read somewhere that it had support but it appears that we still have no confirmation on this. Which is pretty lame, IMHO

    Bump

    Almost 400 stars to this and no one at Google has ever chimed in. Shameful.

    So this app is able to let me see my Bluetooth Smart Polar H7 heart-rate monitor on my Samsung Note 2 (& wife's S3), despite me not being able to see it via Bluetooth pairing:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=search_result

    So the Bluetooth 4.0/Smart is clearly enabled/possible on the Galaxy note2/S3 but the firmware/software just isn't there. Can anyone use this app to figure how to make it work?? (Samsung / Google - can you???)

    Here we are over a year later and still no support for BTLE. I bought a Mio Alpha heart rate monitor and it's a no-go with my S4. Anyone know when I'll finally be able to pair my Mio Alpha with my S4? Is there a work-around of some sort available?
