There is a bunch of information recorded in the hidclient.c file, that's the main source of instructions/documentation. Unfortunately I know very little about how it really works, I just know how I got it to work on my laptop at one point but I haven't used it in a while

It shows up on my android device as input, when I try to switch on the slider switch it stalls for sometime and does nothing. The switch remains in the off position. Any idea? Is there a video tutorial to see the exact steps or a written one? There is no post mentioning the details and the sequential order of steps to be taken. What am I doing wrong?

Oops, seems to be temporary. Okay now.

The source URL 404 here.

Yes I did, although it requires some tweaking to additional configuration files like adding the --compat flag to the bluetoothd daemon command line and making some other changes as listed in the source file. I didn't include those in this package because I don't think other people will appreciate such invasive packaging. Although I should probably mention it on the wiki.

Did you actually get it working? I created a package myself and tried it back in September but wasn't successful (and so I didn't push it to the AUR).
