First of all I'm working with a backtrack 5 VM through parallels.

Been working on this for 14 hours straight, so I'm desperate.

I built my own ubertooth, checks out fine. flashed the bootloader onto it just fine too.

Now i'm working on flashing the bluetooth_rxtx.bin file onto it using ubertooth_dfu but I keep getting the following error:

No module named core
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "ubertooth-dfu", line 318, in <module>
print dfu.get_status( )
NameError: name 'dfu' is not defined.

The command I use:

python ubertooth-dfu write bluetooth_rxtx.dfu

bluetooth_rxtx.dfu is in the same folder as ubertooth-dfu. I've also tried flashing .bin, .hex, and all the rest of the stuff I can find.

I have the device in DFU mode with the only method I can, bridging pins 1 and 3 with a paper clip. Seems to work just fine as everything lights up to show DFU mode.

If anyone has the SLIGHTEST idea how I might could fix this, I'd be ever so thankful. And to the person who helps most/gives me a fix is of course the $20 bounty, if allowed on the forums. I've tried everything i can on both mac and backtrack 5 linux, seems like I've got everything but one small detail.

Thanks in advance for any and all replies!

# -----------compile firmware ------------

Try to use this : https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/package7815/public/arm-none-eabi/arm-2010.09-51-arm-none-eabi.bin

That worked for me...

Here is my messy notes from when i compiled firmware for my ubertooth..


apt-get install python-pyside.qtgui

apt-get install python-usb

apt-get install libusb-dev python-pyside python-numpy subversion

git clone git://ubertooth.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ubertooth/ubertooth

mkdir temp

cd temp

wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyusb/files/PyUSB%201.0/1.0.0-alpha-1/pyusb-1.0.0-a1.zip

wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyusb/files/PyUSB%201.0/1.0.0-alpha-2/pyusb-1.0.0a2.zip

unzip pyusb-1.0.0a2.zip

cd pyusb-1.0.0a2/

python setup.py install

cd ~/source/UBERTOOTH/ubertooth/trunk/host/specan_ui

# insert ubertooth (2 green lights) wait for 1 red light (USB) and run the following as root:

apt-get install libicu48

python ./specan_ui.py

apt-get install libfuse-dev libdbus-1-3 libdbus-1-dev obexftp libobexftp* libdbus-glib-1-2 libdbus-glib-1-dev obexfs python-gobject python-dbus bluez-hcidump

FORGET THE REST BELOW.. just test stuff

svn co https://pyusb.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pyusb pyusb

# cd pyusb/trunk/

# ./setup.py build

# ./setup.py install

# cd ../../

# python specan_ui.py

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubertooth/ubertooth-r434.tar.gz?r=http%3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fubertooth%2F&ts=1337345333&use_mirror=dfn

$ git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/libbtbb/code libbtbb

$ cd libbtbb/

$ gmake

$ sudo make install

hciconfig -a # List the device

# -----------compile firmware ------------

installer: https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/package7815/public/arm-none-eabi/arm-2010.09-51-arm-none-eabi.bin

SOME TEST FILES... SKIP.. https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/package8734/public/arm-none-eabi/arm-2011.03-42-arm-none-eabi-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.bz2
