Archived:Trying to switch Bluetooth on with the Power State API does not work (Known Issue)
Changing the Bluetooth power state with SDK Central Repository keys does not work on S60 3rd Edition and FP1 devices.
The header file btserversdkcrkeys.h includes Central Repository keys for controlling the Bluetooth power state. However, setting the power state to EBTPowerOn does not switch Bluetooth on even though the status icon indicates that it is activated.
How to reproduce
CRepository* cenRep = CRepository::NewLC( KCRUidBluetoothPowerState );
TInt state, err = KErrNone;
cenRep->Get( KBTPowerState, state );
if( state == EBTPowerOff )
err = cenRep->Set( KBTPowerState, EBTPowerOn );
CleanupStack::PopAndDestroy(); // cenRep
Use the Bluetooth Notifier API to switch Bluetooth on.
