Okay, i find this interesting and hope it works like charm.

Do It Yourself (DIY): Stereo Bluetooth (A2DP) on the SP5 HTC Tornado + some other Windows Mobile 5.0 phones

another guide on Dopod 818 Pro: forum.XDA-Developers.com

another guide on HTC Tornado: forum.XDA-Developers.com

Have fun, be aware that, you will be doing it at your own risk.

Cool - I will try it on the Apache. HTC removed A2DP from AKU2.2 because it is 'unstable'. I'll let you know if it works.

I belive this only works for sprint ppc 6700 with new AKU2 ROM update, not for telecom apache.

There is a AKU2 ROM for the Telecom Apache, currently being tested. I am pretty sure Jama will be able to source one for his tests.

Got it working - sort of. Install was ok. This .cab sorts out the reg edits.

1. Copy .DLL's
2. Copy/extract Tornado_A2DP.cab

I get the option for 'Wireless Stereo' under 'partnership settings'. My Apache manages to pair with my Plantronics 590 stereo bluetooth head phones. Press play on Windows Media - no sound through headphones, just sound through Apache. Back to forums and found I also need a file called Tor_A2DP_cert.cab to register .DLL's (this was not in the .zip). Installed this, delete partnership, soft reset, pair devices and presto new little icon at the top of my Apache which looks like head phones with a music note in the middle. Press play again and wow music through the headphones for about 5 seconds. Then it gets intermittent and cuts in and out. Sound cuts back to Apache. Go back to Bluetooth, hold stylus on '590Plantronics' and toggle 'set as wireless stereo' (on/off).

For the few seconds of music I get it sounds very good. Now to try playing around with it further to see if I can get it stable. This is exactly what HTC said 'A2DP too unstable in AKU2.2, wait for AKU3.x'

Great concept and if it worked properly this is something that I would use.

Cool, well done Jama... keep us posted with your finding.

While on about WM5 and A2DP, I read that HP HX4700 WM5 update comes with Broadcom Bluetooth stack with A2DP support, which they need to because there will be a few customers using HP Bluetooth headphone with HX4700. They won't want to break them, would they?


So perhaps another option is to {hack} to put Broadcom BT stack on WM5? doable?
