    I purchased a Logitech bluetooth keyboard to use specifically with my Nexus 7; it worked perfectly until the 4.2 update. Now it won’t pair for any longer than a few seconds, so I haven’t been able to use it since. Not real pleased with that, so I’m definitely looking forward to the fix.

    Basically, 4.2 & 4.2.1 disabled Bluetooth on my nexus 7. I slide the toggle to ‘on’, and it remains gray, never turning on. I used to (4.1.1 / 4.1.2) use Bluetooth tethering for mapping & traffic on the tablet. I also used to play arcade games with a WiiMote. All history now.

    I was searching to see if anyone has had issues and found this string. I have the Maxx 4.1.2. My bluetooth in relation to streaming video /music through my Toyota stereo (Entune) was doing great up until a couple of months ago. It seemed to get worse with time. I “listen” to Netflix to/from work and had no issues up until then. I’m pretty sure it started getting buggy after the last update, but in the last few weeks, the music player auto starts and won’t shut off and in order to get music to quit I have to clear the queue -the player still won’t close. with it open it won’t stream Netflix at all. really annoyed with it. (Also hate the update on the music player. Tried a couple others, but then when tried the bluetooth deal again they seemed to take turns auto-starting as well…leading me to think it’s the bluetooth itself not the audio/video apps. If there’s a fix I’d sure like to have it. I used to LOVE my phone and with each update I like it less and less as something or several somethings seem to break each time. I really use my phone quite a bit and music / video is an important part of having this type of phone.

    I have the galaxy S3, and the past month or so, my audio streaming sounds like a poor quality fm transmitter. I can’t seem to figure out why. .
