Not so obsolete

It's too early to deprecate bluez4. bluez5 has no support for the HSP/HFP profiles. Theoretically, configuration of the HSP/HFP bluetooth profiles will be delegated to oFono but implementation is yet to materialize.

Bluez5 removes internal support for setting HSP/HFP Profiles (falsely claims that oFono support is already available)

Pulseaudio will not support HSP/HFP with bluez5 (waiting for yet-to-exist oFono implementation)

Unmerged patches for HFP with bluez5+oFono+pulseaudio exist, but nothing for HSP (the rumored partial support?)

I've changed the wording of the relevant sections a little. Chazza (talk) 14:31, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Pulseaudio (since version 6.0) now implements HSP/HFP profiles itself making this discussion now out-dated. Xkero (talk) 05:27, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
So, should this page be redirected then? -- Alad (talk) 15:18, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
Quite possibly. I don't pretend to be an expert on Bluetooth but it seems to me that much of this article isn't relevant to Bluez4 alone. Tools like hciconfig and hcitool are provided by bluez-utils (a Bluez5 package). And as for the ObexFTP stuff, well, we already have Bluetooth#ObexFTP_Transfers which covers that. The only Bluez4 specific information that jumps out at me is the bluez-simple-agent related sections. As I understand it, that was a Bluez4 utility that was replaced with bluetoothctl in Bluez5. -- Chazza (talk) 09:13, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
The bluez4 package is no longer available on AUR, so I've flagged the article for archiving. Feel free to replace it with a merge/redirect template if you think that's more suited. -- Alad (talk) 13:21, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
