Force Apple's Bluetooth firmware upgrade to install Install
Apple's Bluetooth Firmware Update tool refuses to update my firmware. And I'm not alone from what I read in the discussion forums. Perhaps I'm already on the latest edition, but I've been having real problems when recovering from sleep (the DBT-120 USB bluetooth module won't come on in most cases, and the blued daemon has to be kill'd) so I suspect I don't have the latest version.

Someone going by the ID of mactechconsulting of Hampton Bays, NY, posted a way around this problem which forces the updater to update your firmware: simply hold the Option key down while starting the update! The full thread can be found here.

Thanks Mac Tech Consulting! :-)

Force Apple's Bluetooth firmware upgrade to install
Authored by: omphteliba on Jul 05, '06 04:10:06AM

the "option" trick isn't working, and the apple discussions thread link isn't working anymore.

any other ideas on how to force the installation of the "Bluetooth firmware 1.2.1"?

the brand new DBT-120 B4 isn't working with a headset, if i cant get the firmware on it...
