Thread: Bluetooth AVRCP
02-19-2013, 05:01 PM #1
Now that iOS 6 has an untethered jailbreak I finally upgraded. Now my Bluetooth controls and metadata aren't working with my Alpine CDE-133BT car stereo. I've heard that this is because older units are confused by the new AVRCP 1.4 profile. If someone could make a tweak that downgrades to AVRCP 1.3, I'm sure the whole community would be grateful.

BlueZ) has support for AVRCP 1.3. Maybe someone could get that bluetooth stack working on the iPhone. There are numerous threads about this issue on Apple's forum and they don't seem to care .
It sounds like Apple is leaving it up to the headunit manufacturers to release updates to fix the issue: Some car stereos require a firmware update for AVRCP 1.4 Bluetooth compatibility
Seems like a crappy solution considering most manufacturers won't release updates. Apple should've provided a AVRCP 1.3 only mode rather than forcing 1.4. Sadly I think my iPhone 4S will be my last iPhone. I am seriously considering an Android device since this feature works on Android.

Hi, I don't know if this is of any use, but If you download Flex from Cydia, then search Flex for Springboard patches, you will see a patch called "Allow All Bluetooth Pairing", might be with a go?
