    Hello,

    NEO X8-H PLUS.

    I have tried connecting my Samsung Galaxy 5 phone via Bluetooth. I am able to pair the device, but when I click connect, it tries to conmect and then immediately disconnects. I have also tried connecting my PS4 controller, but it starts to pair and then just sticks like that.

    I have tried updating my firmware, Flashing my firmware (via usb and PC USB boot tool), Rooting my device. Nothing seems to work, still won't connect.

    It's driving me crazy...

    Any ideas?

    Do you have an X8-H Plus? You have posted in the X8-H, X8 Plus, X8 forum!
    The firmwares are different!
    If you flash your device with the wrong firmware then the issue you are experiencing is justified.
    Bluetooth and WiFi will be affected! Does WiFi work?

    Yes. I have Neo X8-H PLUS. I am using correct firmware.

    The bluetooth didnt work straight out of the box. The reason for flashing the firmware was to try and fix this problem.

    I have tried flashing to the stock firmware and the current one. No dice.

    Oh and yes wifi works fine

    Note: PlayStation uses its own Bluetooth protocol so you won't be able to connect it as standard.
    Other Bluetooth devices, speakers, mouse, keyboard etc should work okay though.

    Can you pair it and use it on your Samsung galaxy?

    No I can't.

    Am I to understand that I shouldn't be able to pair my Samsung Galaxy 5 with the Neo X8-H Plus?

    To be honest I don't know, but I would assume that you should be able to. Have you any bluetooth speakers, headphones you could test?

    OK. I haven't tested the bluetooth speaker yet, but I tried the PS4 controller again a few times and it actually paired now... works fine...Very strange. Still no luck with the Galaxy S5.

    Funny thing is, I just ordered a Tronsmart g01 contro─║ler yesterday... fml lol
