Default SGS2 Bluetooth

With the (for the most part) open source nature of Android, and the number of developers out there, I find it very disheartening that nobody had made a user friendly way of adding the missing bluetooth libraries/modules/whatever required to make sixaxes and wiimote controller work. Does anyone here have an idea of how to do it? Can someone install one of the roms (cyanogen mod and Miui, i believe) that work with those programs, create backups of all of the bluetooth related stuff with titanium backup, and be able to use titanium backup on a stock(rooted) rom to install it? Is that possible and would that work?

I have a fast (Class 12, I think) 32GB card in my SGS2 and I tried to install cyanogen mod, but it seems when I use custom roms, I am unable to see the contents of my card (all file managers show it as being empty).

I sure would like to just use an update.zip or restore files from a titanium backup, to mod just the bluetooth portion of my phone.

I can't really see anything from cyanogen or miui working on stock as those roms are built from scratch for the purpose of being nothing like stock roms. I can help you find you sd though. Cyanogen has it under mnt/emmc.

Default Thanks!

Thanks for the tip! I'll look into that for the SD card. Although I still lose a lot of stuff with cyanogen that I actually think is cool from the stock rom.

But I'm not clear on why it wouldn't work. From what little i've read, Android has something like separate little kernels for things like bluetooth, in the form of a .ko or .so file or something like that. I would assume it's just a matter of knowing each and every file that needs to be copied over since the MAIN kernel should *essentially* be the same (or else nothing would work on the hardware)
