Bluetooth LE with Cyanogenmod 11 on Droid RAZR M

So I was trying to figure out how exactly I could get my Droid RAZR M to recognize a Bluetooth LE (4.0) device and after a lot of searching, this is what I found.

  1. Download this file to your device: android.hardware.bluetooth_le.xml
  2. Open up RootExplorer (or any other file manager you would like) and copy the file to /etc/permissions/
  3. Change the permissions on the file to 644 or rw-r–r–
  4. Reboot
  5. Enjoy!

Right now you have to do this every time you update your CM install but I’m working on a init script that will do it for you. Until then, this should work.

Hi there, I have a Droid RAZR M, got a fitbit and now the bluetooth isn't the low powered one so won't pair. The link provided says 'temporarily n/a, check back soon' when I open it on my phone. Any other solutions!? Kindest regards

Hey, Thanks for posting this. I just tried it on my Droid Razr Maxx (XT912), running CM 10.2 but now the Bluetooth won't switch on. I guess I'll try CM 11 Snapshot build and see what happens.
