Hardware

Bluetooth is available on the XO-4 built-in.

Bluetooth is available on the XO-1, XO-1.5, XO-1.75 using a USB bluetooth adapter. The adapter will prevent closure of the latches. Not all adapters are supported.

Software

On 13.2.0:

  • our GNOME desktop does not have the usual Bluetooth panel icon for scan and pairing, but this can be added;
 yum install -y gnome-bluetooth
  • Sugar does not have Bluetooth scan and pairing support.

Firmware

The firmware of the XO-4 includes a Bluetooth pairing test which is used during manufacturing.

Hacking

  • A Nintendo Wii Remote Plus can be paired with an XO-4, giving access to keys, accelerometer, gyroscope, rumble motor, speaker, and the IR dot position camera.
  • A USB bluetooth adapter may be installed inside an XO-1, using a hardware customisation procedure that has not been tested by OLPC.
