    Bluetooth problems with new OS 6.0.0.546 on my 9780

    I have recently upgraded my software to the new .546 and I am now suddenly having problems connecting my bluetooth to my vehicle!
    Never had any hassles before, now it connects & seconds later says "connection failed" I have tried deleting & reinstalling the connection but the problem persists which is very frustrating.
    Any advice on how to fix this as it definately seems to be a problem with OS?

    Hello deeroe,

    Let's rule out the obvious first. Have you performed a battery pull restart on your device lately? Sometime this will refresh the OS and take care of any buggy issues with Bluetooth, Wifi, apps, ect.

    I would recommend rolling back to the OS that worked. Bluetooth can be a very touchy thing with vehicle and device integration. I've seen many complaints before from users who have had the same issue as you. They ended up rolling back to the OS that worked.

    Thanks will try that but as a somewhat "technically challenged" individual how exactly do I do that?
    Have connected again this morning via Desktop manager to check out updates and the other option it gave me was to downgrade to v .294 but from some reading up it appears this is a really old version and also very buggy?

    You can start by downloading a pretty stable OS release for the 9780 here... 9780_6.0.0.448 - Downloads - BlackBerry Forums

    Once you have downloaded, follow our site upgrade guide to help you through the upgrade process. Please make sure to follow every step.... All In One Guide - How To Upgrade Your Device - with Pictures & Videos

    If after you install this OS and you still have the issue, I would recommend going back to the OS you used before when it did work. Like I was saying, sometimes bluetooth compatibility isn't updated within a new OS, so you are either forced to stick with what works, or figure out a different bluetooth system.

    As stated above, sometimes only 1 OS will work with the vehicle's bluetooth.

    My friend had OS 6.0.0.359 and it connected seamlessly to his Range Rover. Any OS after that would just be unstable or fail to connect altogether. He even took his vehicle to the agency to have its Bluetooth / ECU upgraded but that didn't help.

    What he did is, he installed 359 on his computer, then copied the Bluetooth files to a folder of his choice.


    Now anytime he wants to upgrade in the future to a newer OS, he would just copy those Bluetooth files from 359 which he had saved earlier, then copy them to the OS loader folde,r or simply inject them to the phone via BBSAK

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You need to have .359 installed on your PC, and the new OS installed on your phone.

    Download and install BBSAK, connect your phone and select Modify CODs, then Read System.

    Next, select the following files from the list on the right, and click Save COD(s):-

    net_rim_bb_BluetoothFileTransfer.cod
    net_rim_bluetooth.cod
    net_rim_bMessage.cod
    net_rim_bt_map.cod

    Now select Install COD(s) and browse to the following folder on your PC:-

    C: > Program Files > Common Files > Research In Motion > Shared > Loader Files > 9780M_v6.0.0.576 (example) > Java

    Select and individually install the following files:-

    net_rim_bb_BluetoothFileTransfer.cod
    net_rim_bluetooth.cod
    net_rim_bMessage.cod
    net_rim_bt_map.cod

    If it all goes tits-up, then reconnect to BBSAK and reinstall the previously saved cod files using the Install COD(s) function
