Bluetooth doesn't work on RPi 3 in LE version 9

  • After upgrading to version 9 of LE I found that bluetooth wasn't working. It was enabled, but LE 'said' no bluetooth adapter was found. The same happend after a complete clean reinstall of LE. Downgrading from version 9 to 8 resulted in a working bluetooth adapter again, so I have to conclude it is a software issue. Anyone else having this issue on a RPi?

  • RPi3 A,+ or B+ ?

    Are you sure BT is turned on in LE settings as the default may have changed.

    If all OK, then can you provide the output of:

    cat /flash/config.txt | paste

    dmesg | paste


    Please provide a full debug log.

  • Bluetooth does work for me, just not all the time... It randomly drops dead every now and then.

  • I'll reinstall LE 9 this weekend and let you know. It's a RPi 3B+ by the way.
