Thanks for the info. It is nice to finally have a properly working bluetooth solution for RPi.

Package is obsolete:

Just add dtparam=krnbt=on to config.txt, and ensure that in the same file enable_uart=0 (default), and that /dev/ttyAMA0 is not used in cmdline.txt for the console or other stuff. Reboot, and install official Arch Linux packages bluez and bluez-utils. Test with bluetoothctl.

Pi4. This works great for my BT mouse (extra steps needed here:

However, the sound to a BT speaker is choppy (not so with a usb bt adapter).
