The newer versions of the firmware shipping on this device will bring it up in a HID/UHE dongle mode. The device needs to be switched to HCI mode upon boot, so the attached debdiff to bluez-utils will handle this.

Turns out this also works for the 410, so here is an updated patch with the 410 as well.

Hey, I have a dell studio 1555 and i wondered if any of you could you help me configuring my Dell bluetooth 370 in Ubuntu Karmic kernel 2.6.32-020632-generic? I can't get it working, and, as I'm a linux noob, I don't have the slightest clue in how to apply the patches mentioned before.Thanks

               The bluetooth 370 does work under 10.04 & 9.10 without issue. Not sure about the kernel you are using though. That isn't an offical Ubuntu kernel.

                Check that the rfkill isn't set . Run command (from terminal) "rfkill list" . If it is hard or softblocked press the kill switch hot key. Also check the bios .. and test to see if testing the rfkill not to control bluetooth helps.
