    After a few days of pentesting with your dist with bluetooth, I always get some weird error, and it doesn't let me pair to any device, nor scan any.. Any help please?

    root@kali:~# hciconfig
    hci0: Type: Primary Bus: UART
    BD Address: AA:AA:AA:AA:AA:AA ACL MTU: 1021:8 SCO MTU: 64:1
    UP RUNNING
    RX bytes:1441 acl:0 sco:0 events:83 errors:0
    TX bytes:2987 acl:0 sco:0 commands:83 errors:0

    EDIT: The problem here is the MAC address..

    Not sure, haven't seen that before. This MAC address is an indication that the right driver isn't loaded.
    I'm currently running a couple of tests to see if I can reproduce the problem.
    What's the status of the bluetooth and hciuart services when you encounter the drop out?
    Does it help if you restart those services?
    Any errors in your journal?

    Many thanks,
    Re4son

    Hi !

    i am having a few issues also, I have mine setup with wifi allowing me to vnc into pi and ssh , but i want to be able to ssh and vnc into pi over Bluetooth which is gonna require pan / dun. when i attempt to get pi to connect via Bluetooth over vnc wifi , it freeze's everything and vnc crashes out. ssh over putty / wifi is still on. I am currently going though the steps you listed on page 1 to see if that fixes it.

    i re did everything from the top of your list to bottom , and now its not finding anything via bluetooth at all, scans are not showing my phone or laptop where as the last burnt sd card i did would show devices but never connect

    You can try my new "testing" release of the re4son-kernel.

    Improvements:
    ------------------
    Kernel: Bump to 4.9 for better RPi HW support
    Bluetooth: Upgraded to bluez 5.39. It's fast and rock solid
    WiFi injection: Full support for Alfa AWUS051NH v2

    Issues:
    ---------
    TFT touch displays from 4D-Systems not yet supported. Stick with the old kernel if you have one of those.

    Installation:
    --------------
    Code:
    sudo bash
    mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /boot
    cd /usr/local/src
    wget -O re4son_kali-pi_kernel_testing.tar.xz https://whitedome.com.au/re4son/downloads/11335/
    tar -xJf re4son_kali-pi_kernel_testing.tar.xz
    cd re4son_kali-pi_kernel_4*
    ./install

    I've had a Bluetooth keyboard connected for several days without any dropouts and it's still going strong.
    It's been running an ssh connection over Bluetooth PAN for over a day without any issues, even vnc'ing over that connection works flawlessly.
    I'm using this PAN module from Sticky-Fingers V2.2.0 for that connection.

    Why don't you give it a try and let me know how you go?

    Happy hacking,
    Re4son

    I will try this once upgrad && update finish , your 8~+- hours behind me lol will reattempt and see whats happening and check back in i have numerous bluetooth devices and trying to make them play nice has not been fun , internal bluetooth on laptop is junk never works ,

    somehow bluez and blueman got uninstalled , once its done ill start the process of moving in your kernel update


    *edit*

    yea stupid Q time ! , ok so i imported the new kernel via your link , everything went well there. rebooted. im looking at the git you linked for bt pan , its not what im used no download files, what do i need to do with that notepad / nano copy paste make exec and run ? also blue tooth manager in kali is now less effective than it was. previously i was able to search for and find other bt devices now i search with no results. and im noticing some weird things im currently using wifi for vnc , using x11vnc because i want access to screen :0 but it looks randomly like im getting dropped whenever i play with blue tooth , the vnc connection drops , usually at this point since i haven't added x11vnc to start up i have 4 terminates open all except my original ssh over wifi closes , the ssh stays open. not sure why when i play with blue tooth , the vnc session closes,

    thanks!

    *2nd edits*

    boy am i stupid ! haaaa ok found the list of things to do , downloaded files side loaded cp'ed and chmod +x them and just rebooted after restarting , will see what this does and let ya know.

    Sorry, I meant OS image not kernel.
    Did you install the stock Kali image from this site or the Sticky-Fingers image from mine?
    The PAN AP is a module in Sticky Fingers.

    Running Sticky-Fingers, just run:

    Code:
    cd /home/pi/Kali-Pi
    git pull
    cd Menus/RAS-AP/
    ./bt-pan-ap-install
    systemctl enable pan
    systemctl start pan
    That'll set up your PAN AP.

    I would use the command line to set up your bluetooth. Blueman in xfce via VNC is hit and miss.

    Hope that helps,
    Re4son
