The team at iBluetoothProject.tk has released a small MobileTerminal app to demonstrate their progress in unlocking the iPhone's bluetooth capabilities.

The teaser app called "bluesn0w" does a 10 second scan for near-by bluetooth devices and displays each of their MAC addresses. Their goal is to bring to the iPhone the bluetooth services a smart mobile phone should have.

-----
Final app deets:
1. Ultimately this application will probably be Free and Open Source,
2. It obviously will look a lot more flashy, with a clean and easy to use GUI,
3. (We think) the app will be able to complete your wildest dreams. (Nothing in the 'requests' section I don't see cannot be done for the most part!)
4. Did I hear something about Bluetooth Super Hack? You can bet your bottom dollar we're working on it!
5. The MAC address can be spoofed, and we will possible add this ability to the final release.

I love the GUI it\'s very pretty, but still they followed my advice, new domain, new name! But same results.. I\'m still with my opinion, the chip sees all devices but chooses what to display to the Settings screen, to be able to display the rest that the OS cuts off, it\'s not the same to be communicating with another device at ALL! Sorry to be so hard, but i\'ve seen people throwing away their \"donations\" like flies to a project that has virtually no future.. If someday there is a way with e.g. an external bluetooth dongle, i\'m gonna be the 1ST to donate to that cause and also buy it !

Sorry to buzz about this again, but i still think that this project could not go any further, maybe some more by porting bluez-urils from the arm builds of debian, but that\'s it.. I still think that all this is happening about the donations, and prove me wrong.. Sorry but it\'s what i think and from what i\'ve seen, it\'s almost like that, \"donate for that\" \"donate for the other\" \"only usd\" like if i donate on € paypal will not convert it to their currency, sorryz but i think its a bunch of guys trying to make a living out of it, thats why they changed the name to a more \"wise\" one like bluesn0w by copying yellosn0w fame!
