Any news on the bluetooth front at all?

So what's the status. Bought a screen not knowing it would brake internal bluetooth on my Pi3. Any chance it could work with a bluetooth dongle?

Is anyone working on the issue? Is there ANY movement on this? As far as I can see this has been an issue since March?

nope, no movement, we took a few looks but nothing obviously wrong!
any fixes appreciated. no ETA as to when we'll get to fixing it, or if its at all fixable!

yes!
https://github.com/adafruit/adafruit-raspberrypi-linux
but i dont think its in the source code for the kernel, its almost certainly some device tree ble miniuart type thing - which is all marginally documented :)
i'll take another look today, sometimes you just have to hammer at it, and the hammer hits the right hting

I just found this thread after frustratingly spending hours trying to get bluetooth and the PiTft to work. I wish this info was posted on the PiTft page when i bought it, I could have saved myself some money.

looks like the kernel we have does not have the hciuart support built in, so its not an easy fix. no ETA on when we'll get to make a new package/image. if you absolutely can't use the product, email support@adafruit for a refund.

again - no ETA - please do not bump with "any updates?" we will update the thread when we do a new package :)

I think what upsets most people is that this is a surprise left for post purchase. For example, I got my company to source this through a supplier in South Africa, so who is going to give us a refund... And even worse: where do I get a screen that does work?

You can have the supplier refund you & Adafruit will credit them. Right now we do not know of any replacement - every other similiar screen is clone of ours and they just use our code ;)

we will look at recompiling a kernel but, again, no promised ETA.

we've compiled a new kernel with the snazziest latest new version (as of today)

you can run the Easy DIY Installer (new all-in-one images have not been generated as of this post)
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pit ... ler-script
to install on top of your Jessie or Jessie lite - tested with the latest 2016-09-23 images recently released from raspbian. Wifi & BLE for the Pi 3 seems to be working.

thx!
