Raspberry Pi 3 - Setting Up Bluetooth
Work in progress
The Raspberry Pi 3 has bluetooth chip on the BCM2837 and it is connected to the hardware UART.
You can get bluetooth to work only if you are not using the UART for anything else.
You'll need the bluez package
Start the bluetooth deamon at boot. This should load the right modules when you next reboot.
We'll need the firmware from Broadcom
Next we load the hci_uart module and we attach the serial port to the bcm43xx
