Bluetooth Keyboard for iPhone via Jailbreak BTstack
Ringwald's BTstack Keyboard for Jailbreak lets your iPhone 3G or 3GS, or BT-enabled iPod touch use a Bluetooth keyboard and is now available via Cydia.
Based on the open-source BTstack project, it's been tested on:
- Apple Bluetooth keyboard
- Think Outside Stowaway Universal keyboard
- Palm Wireless keyboard
But should work on any similarly functioning device, and the status for iPhone 2G appears to still be up in the air.
Until Apple sees fit to add their own BT driver (and the HID, Human Interface Device profile) for their own BT keyboard, this is another area only Jailbreak can fill. So, as always, if you try it out, let us know how it works for you. Preferably, let us know while typing on your iPhone via a BT keyboard!
